Hymn for a Union Soldier

Brother, we went to war today, you for their side.
And I for ours.
Before we left we exchanged a hand in friendship and
Expressed our love.
But, 'ere we meet on the field of battle,
What shall you do?
What shall I do?
Just because I fight on this side, and you on that,
Does not our love diminish, or our blood run thin to water.
