The Knitting Song

I came across this article about a knitting song...and went in search...love when I find stuff!!! :)

Masonic Voice Review, Volume 26
Pg. 259

The Knitting Song, just issued by Bro. John Church, jr., 4th st., Cincinnati, is just the song for “the times.” Our brave soldiers are battling for the country, and our noble-hearted women are knitting—sewing—laboring to supply our soldiers in hospital, camp and bivouac with needed comforts. Get the “Knitting Song,” and let it be heard at every gathering and in every household, to cheer the patriotic ladies in their noble work.


Knit! Knit! Knit!
For our Northern soldiers brave!
Knit! Knit! Knit!
While the Stars & Stripes they wave!
While they the rebels in battle meet!
Be yours to fashion with fingers fleet the nice warm socks for the weary feet
Knit! Knit Knit!

For our boys on Southern hills,
Our boys in Southern vales,
By the woods & steams of Dixies land, are feeling the wintry gales.

Knit! Knit! Knit!
The socks and mittens and gloves!
Knit! Knit! Knit!
Each one that her country loves!
Lay by the useless, though beautiful toy
With which you many an hour employ,
And knit, instead, for the soldier boy
Knit! Knit!, Knit!
Chorus. For our boys, &c.

Knit! Knit! Knit!
Narrow, and widen, and seam
Knit! Knit! Knit!
till the flying needles gleam.
Knit till the mitten lies complete
Knit till the socks for the weary feet
The eye of each patient soldier greet
Knit! Knit! Knit!
Chorus. For our boys, &c.
Knit! Knit! Knit!
And knit with many a prayer!
Knit! Knit! Knit!
Pray God the lives to spare
 Of loved ones, soon on the battle field
The deadly weapons of war to wield,
Knit! Knit! Knit!
Chorus, For our boys, &c.
