Lyrics:

Four score and seven years ago
Our fathers brought forth on this continent
A new nation conceived in liberty
And dedicated to the proposition
That all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great Civil War,
Testing whether that nation or any nation
So conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield of that war.

We have come to dedicate
A portion of that field as
A final resting place
For those who here gave their lives
That a nation might live.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this,
But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate,
We cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living and dead
Who struggled here have consecrated
It far above our poor power
To add or detract.
The world will little note nor long remember what we say here,
But it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living
Rather to be dedicated
Here to the unfinished work
Which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us
To be here dedicated
To the great task remaining before us.
That from these honored dead
We take increased devotion
To that cause for which they gave
The last full measure of devotion.

That we here highly resolve
That these dead shall not have died in vain.

That this nation under God
Shall have a new birth of freedom,
And that government
Of the people,
By the people,
For the people
Shall not perish
From the earth.
