    Four score and seven years ago so began the message
    Of a war-weary president abraham lincoln
    A message written on the back of an envelope on a train
    On the way to dedicate a battlefield
    Where men from the north and south
    had died at gettysburg pennsylvania
    Four score and seven years ago our forefathers
    brought forth on this continent
    A new nation conceived in liberty
    And dedicated in the proposition that all men are created equal
    Now we're 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 the final resting place for those who here gave their lives
    That that nation might live
    It is altogether fitting and proper thast we should do this

    But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate we cannot consecrate
    We cannot hallow this ground
    For the brave men living and dead who struggled here
    Have consecreated it far above our poor power to add or detract
    The world will little notice or long remember what we say here

    But it can never forget what they did here
    It is for us the living rather to be dedicasted here
    to the unfinished work
    Which they who fought here have thus 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 and that this nation under god
    shall have a new birth of freedom
    And the government of the peopole by the people and for the people
    Shall not perish from the earth
