The brightest star that gems the sea,
His darling soul shall ever be.
His genius gave the mighty world
O'er which our banner is unfurled
Again we see his gallant bark
Sail on afar the ocean dark;
In fancy follow o'er the wave,
'Mid dangers wild, Columbus brave!

Still age to age shall tell the story,
While Freedom's flag shall o'er us wave;
oh! still undimmed shall live In glory,
His noble fame, Columbus brave!
Yes, still undimmed shall live in glory,
His noble fame, Columbus brave!

His onward course no peril stayed;
He voyaged on, by naught dismayed,
Till, 'mid the gloom of darkest night,
Across the billows gleamed the light!
Again we hear the triumph song
That o'er the land was swept along;
While thanks to heaven all hearts gave;
Who followed him, Columbus brave!- Chorus.

Oh! lesson bright to all the years,
The soul that soured above all fears;
Still unsubdued 'mid perils dire.
The dauntless, trusting heart of fire!
Long shall his fame in history live.
Long shall our hearts their tribute give;
Aye, while our bannered stars shall wave,
All honored be Columbus brave!- Chorus.
