LIBERTY.

Thy cause, O Liberty ! can never fail,
Whether by foes o'erwhelm'd, or friends betray'd :
Then be its advocates of nought afraid !
As God is true, they surely shall prevail.

Let base oppressors tremble and turn pale !
They, they alone, may justly be dismayed ;
For Truth and Right are on thy side arrayed,
And the whole world shall yet thy triumph hail.

No blow for thee was ever struck in vain ;
Thy champions, martyrs, are of noble birth ;
Rare honors, blessings, praises, thanks, they gain,
And Time and Glory magnify their worth !
A thousand times defeated, thou shalt reign
Victor, O Liberty, o'er all the earth !
