Our fathers bled at Valley Forge
The snow was red with blood
Their faith was worn at Valley Forge
Their faith was brotherhood

Wasn't that a time?
Wasn't that a time?
A time to try the soul of men
Wasn't that a terrible time?

Brave men who fought at Gettysburg
Now lie in soldier's graves
But there they stemmed the rebel tide
And there their faith was saved

Wasn't that a time?
Wasn't that a time?
A time to try the soul of men
Wasn't that a terrible time?

The wars are long, the peace is frail
The madmen come again
There is no freedom in a land
Where fear and hate prevail

Isn't this a time?
Isn't this a time?
A time to try the soul of men
Isn't this a terrible time?

Our fathers bled at Valley Forge
The snow was red with blood
Their faith was worn at Valley Forge
Their faith was brotherhood

Wasn't that a time?
Wasn't that a time?
A time to try the soul of men
Wasn't that a terrible time?
