On Liberty.
0! liberty!
Kigli praise to thee!
Our fathers blest thy name divine;
And steep'd in blood,
Unshrinking stood.
The priests and champions of thy shrine.
Thy cherish'd flame
Yet burns the same
As when of yore it warra'd our sires —
Our hearts now beat
With all its heat.
Its generous glow, its faithful fires!
On the high mountains' ragged brow,
Is thy native seat sublime —
Tliere, on the first day, wert thou laid.
Cradled at the birth of time;
Tliere tlie four winds tlieir homage paid,
And to thee, as their queen did bow!
Ail! blest be he, whose high disdain,
Of tyrant-thralls and boastful power,
Shall best thy inborn rights maintain.
And loftiest build thy wild-wood bower:
A precious meed shall crown his care,
His country's love, his country's pray'r!
Dimond.
Vision of Belshazzar.
1,
The King was on his throne, A thousand cups of gold,
The Satraps throng'd the hall; In Jiulah deem'd divine —
A thousand bright lamps shone Jehovah's vessels hold
O'er that high festival. The godless lieathen's wine.
