1   WATCHMAN ! tell us of the night,
What its signs of promise are ? Cloth'd in panoply of light, See, that glorious temp'rance star !
2  Watchman! does its beauteous ray Aught of hope or joy foretel; Trav'ller ! yes ; it brings the day Which shall burst the drunkard's spell.
3  Watchman ! tell us of the night, Higher yet that star ascends ; Trav'ller ! hail its blessed light, Peace and truth its course portends ■,
4  Watchman! will its beams alone Gild the spot that gave them birth I Trav'ller! no ; all time its own, And its heritage the earth.

1   BLOW the temp'rance trumpet, blow, Till it echoes through the world. Let the temp'rance banner too,
O'er the nations be unfurl'd. Till all people taste and see Blessings of sobriety.
2  Then the church will rise, and shine
With unclouded radiancy; Then the light of life divine
In the midst of her will be, Converts haste with willing feet, At the throne of grace to meet.
