LEO N. LEVI, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Let no lament break forth but rather sing
Last Line: Obey our leader's clarion-toned command.
Subject(s): Jews; Judaism


LET no lament break forth but rather sing
Hosannas to the Everlasting King;
Let Hallelujahs everywhere resound
And animate the newly hallowed ground
Where lovingly a garland we may place
To symbolize the homage of his race.
No wringing hands, nor shrill-voiced grief shall lift
Our hero from his consecrated crypt;—
If ye would truly honor him, who bore
The ensign of the fathers to the fore,
Then follow on, and raise the battle-flag,
And hasten on each footstep that would lag.
Unfold forsooth the ancient standard, and
Obey our leader's clarion-toned command.
