CUMBERLAND OUR CUMBERLAND
By
REVEREND S. R. NEEL

Retired Methodist Minister.
Once Pastor of Trinity Methodist Church, Cumberland, Maryland.

Thy mountains reared in majesty,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
From storm's alarm has kept us free,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
Has given homes and industry,
And helped us dwell in unity,
Thy fame and name are God's decree,
Cumberland our Cumberland.

The Gateway to the West thou art,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
Communicant with eastern mart,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
Thine ancient fame to us impart,
Engrave thy name upon each heart,
From greed and shame help us to part,
Cumberland our Cumberland.

As State and Nation shall endure,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
In Freedom's Cause thy soul secure,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
Thy people's good thou shalt secure,
If brotherhood—not base allure—
Shall o'er thee brood in motive pure,
Cumberland our Cumberland.
