2 Thou heard'st, well pleased, the song, And where their pilgrim feet have trod,
the prayer: [Thy blessing came; and still its power I Shall onward, through all ages, bear The memory of that holy hour. || Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God Came with those exiles o'er the waves;
The God they trusted guards their
graves. 4 And here Thy name, O God of love, Their children's children shall adore, Till these eternal hills remove, And spring adorns the earth no more.
Rev. Leonard Bacon, 1833 (text of 1845)

2  Wake in our breasts the living fires, The holy faith that warmed our sires: Thy hand hath made our nation free; To die for her is serving Thee.
3  Be Thou a pillared flame to show The midnight snare, the silent foe; And when the battle thunders loud, Still guide us in its moving cloud.
4  God of.all nations, sovereign Lord,
In Thy dread name we draw the sword, We lift the starry flag on high That fills with light our stormy sky.
5  From treason's rent, from murder's stain, Guard Thou its folds till peace shall reign, Till fort and field, till shore and sea, join our loud anthem,—Praise to Thee.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, i85e
