1
    The despot’s heel is on thy shore,
      Maryland!
His torch is at thy temple-door,
      Maryland!
Avenge the patriotic gore
That flecked the streets of Baltimore,
And be the battle-queen of yore,
      Maryland, my Maryland!
          My Maryland.
2
    Hushed in the alabaster arms of Death
  Our young Marcellus sleeps.
          John Pelham.
3
    Gentlest and bravest in the battle-brunt—
  The Champion of the Truth—
He bore his banner to the very front
  Of our immortal youth.
          John Pelham.
