lyrics

BETTER TIMES ARE COMING
(1862) Stephen Foster

There are voices of hope that are borne on the air,
And our land will be freed from ist clouds of despair,
For brave men and true men to battle have gone,
And good times, good times are now coming on.

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
Sound the news from the din of battle booming,
Tell the people far and wide that better times are coming.

Abra'm Lincoln has the army and the navy in his hands,
While Seward keeps our honor bright abroad in foreign lands;
And Stanton is a man, who is sturdy as a rock,
With brave men to back him up and stand the battle's shock.

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
Sound the news from the din of battle booming,
Tell the people far and wide that better times are coming.
