KNIGHTS OF THE FIERY CROSS
I saw • Cross the other night
All bathed in fiery red,
Beautifying the stars’ clear white
That brightly smiled o’erhead.
And I thought of the noble Klansmen,
The Knights of the Fiery Cross; £
A hundred thousand men and ten,
Who think not of personal loss.
A hundred thousand men and ten
To bind the Nation’s wounds; -JLU -
And they will come from hill and glen.

The Fiery Cross of a Nation grand.
As bright as the stars on high;
Symbolizing a noble band
True-blue like the sky.
Noble Klan, God bless you!
In the work that you must do—
. And, Noble Klan, God rest you!
When that same work is through.
