For the State Registr
Jany. 7th 1843
The Mormons Farewell
-[Tune “No Luck about the House”]-
1 And are you ye sure the news is true?
And are ye you sure he’s free?
Then let us join with one accord.
And have a Jubilee
Chorus.—
We’ll have a Jubilee, My friends,
We’ll have a Jubilee
With heart and voice we’ll all rejoice
In that our Prophet’s free.
 
2 Success unto the Federal Court,
presiding there;
And, also his Associates true, *
So lovely and so fair.
Chorus—
 
3 And to our learned councillors,
We owe our gratitude;
Because that they in freedom’s cause
Like valiant men have stood.
Chorus,—
 
4 In the defence of innocence
They made the truth to bear,
and ’s baseness both
Did fearlessly declare
Chorus.—
 
5 and and
We’ll mention with applause,
Because that they like champions bold
Support the Federal Laws.
