    [FONT="Georgia[SIZE="3"]Any Fanny Crosby fans out there? This coming Sunday, March 24, is her birthday. Born in 1820, 193 years ago. I have been searching for and finding little known songs which she wrote, including those under a long list of pseudonyms.

    One song under a pen name that is still often found in hymnals is "Meet Me There," by Henrietta E. Blair, sometimes H. E. Blair.

    Will be using all FJC songs this Sunday night, and telling a bit of her life story. Choir will be singing one of the obscure songs that I have found. [/SIZE]"][/FONT]

    Frances J. Crosby, "Dixie for the Union"; (tune: Dixie)

    On! ye patriots to the battle
    Hear Fort Moultrie's canon rattle
    Then away, then away, then away to the fight!
    Go meet those Southern Traitors with iron will
    And should your courage falter boys
    Remember Bunker Hill
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
    The stars and stripes forever!
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Our Union shall not sever!

    As our fathers crushed oppression
    Deal with those who breathe Secession
    Then away, then away, then away to the fight
    Though Beauregard and Wigfall
    Their swords may whet
    Just tell them Major Anderson
    Has not surrendered yet
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Our Union shall not sever!

    Is Virginia, too, seceeding?
    Washington's remains unheeding?
    Then away, then away, then away to the fight
    Unfold our country's banner
    In triumph there
    And let the rebels desecrate
    That banner if they dare
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Our Union shall not sever!

    Volunteers, be up and doing
    Still the good old path pursuing
    Then away, then away, then away to the fight
    Your sires, who fought before you
    Have led the way
    Then follow in their footsteps
    And be as brave as they
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Our Union shall not sever!

    On! ye patriots to the battle
    Hear Fort Moultrie's cannon rattle
    Then away, then away, then away to the fight
    The star that lights our Union
    Shall never set!
    Though fierce may be the conflict
    We'll gain the victory yet
    Hurrah! Hurrah! Our Union shall not sever!
