ALBERT SIDNEY JOHNSTON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: His soul to god! On a battle-psalm!
Last Line: To the home of the glorified!
Subject(s): American Civil War; Johnston, Albert Sidney (1803-1862); Shiloh, Battle Of (1862); U.s. - History


HIS soul to God! on a battle-psalm!
A soldier's plea to Heaven!
From the victor wreath to the shining Palm;
From the battle's core to the central calm,
And peace of God in Heaven.

Oh, Land! in your midnight of mistrust
The golden gates flew wide,
And the kingly soul of your wise and just
Passed in light from the house of dust
To the Home of the Glorified!
