1                   NATIONAL ODE.
L AND of Columbia ! awake from thy slumbers, Awake for thy foe is oppressing thee sore; Down the dark stream of intemp'rance what numbers,
Are urging their way to eternity's shore ! Land of Columbia! awake from thy slumbers, Awake, e'er thou fall to recover no more.
Land of Columbia ! thy sons are enslaved, A tyrant infernal has bound them in chains ;
Arise in thy might, let thy children be saved,
Expel the dread foe from thy mountains and plains.
Land of Columbia! thy sons are enslaved,
Awake, e'er they sink where despair ever reigns.
Land of Columbia! the morning hath gleamed, The day-star of temp'rance ascendeth the skies ;
Awake to the light that from heaven hath beamed, No more let the darkness o'ershadow thine eyes.
Land of Columbia ! the morning hath gleamed,
Now, hail its bright rays with soul-cheering cries.
Land of Columbia! awake to thy glory !
And let thy blest influence be felt the world o'er ! Awake, till intemp'rance be known but in story,
Awake, till its woes shall oppress thee no more! Land of Columbia ! awake to thy glory ! Awake !! and the foe shall oppress thee no more.
