Thy mighty rivers join their tide,
And on the wings of morn sent forth
Their mists the far-off peaks divide.
By Thee unsealed,
The mountains yield
Ores that the wealth of Ophir shame,
And gems enwrought of seven. hued flame.
Lo, through what years the soil hath lain
At Thine own time to give increase
The greater and the lesser grain,
The ripening boll, the myriad fleece!
Thy creatures graze
League after league across the land
The ceaseless herds obey Thy hand.
Thou, whose high archways shlnemost clear
Above the plenteous western plain,
Thine ancient tribes from round the sphere
To breathe its quickening air are fain,
And smiles the sun
To see made one
Their brood throughout Earth's greenest
Land of the new and lordlier race I
