Soldier, take my heart with you (1910)

Vocal Range


Editorial Changes
m49, r.h.: flat sign missing on middle C in last chord in original (very likely an omission, based on the explicit C natural in next bar)


Soldier going to the war!
Will you take my heart with you?
So that I may share a little
In the famous things you do.

Soldier going to the war,
If in battle you must fall,
Will you then ’mid all the faces
See my face the last of all?

Soldier coming from the war,
Who shall bind your sunburnt brow
With the laurel of the hero?
Soldier, vow for vow!

Soldier coming from the war,
When the street is one wide sea,
Flags and streaming eyes and glory,
Soldier, will you look for me?
