O stranger, tread lightly, 'tis holy ground here.In death's cold embrace the soldier sleepeth here;On the red field of battle my brave comrade died,And his last smile I caught as I knelt by his side.Yes, his lips wore a smile, and he feared not to die,And his ear caught the shout as it rose to the sky:"The vict'ry is ours!" his comrades cried,"Thank God," said the soldier, as smiling, he died.With hearts full of grief we stood 'round his bier,And each soldier's eye was moist with a tear;And with sad solemn steps we marched to his graveAnd o'er our brave brother our flag we did wave.Yes slowly and sadly we waved a farewell,Though his spirit already in heavenly realms did dwell;But his body we tearfully lowered 'neath there,And the heart of the soldier did send for a prayer.May God help his mother the sad blow to bear,May God help the widow of him who lies 'neath here;May he guard the orphans whose little hearts grieve,That thus no more a father's fond kiss shall recieve.Then stranger, tread lightly, 'tis holy ground here,In death's cold embrace the soldier sleepeth there;Tis the grave of the hero 'neath the grass covered sod.His spirit's in Heaven, at home with his God.

Tread lightly, 'tis a soldiers grave, A lonely, mossy mound; And yet to hearts like mine and thine It should be holy ground.
