1   LONG and gloomy was the night, Hanging on our mental sight, While internp'rance, dark and drear, Fill'd with storms our atmosphere.
2  But behold, a star arise, Brilliant in these northern skies, Coming like redeeming power, In the last despairing hour.
3  Ye who would your children save From a drunkard's awful grave, From the gloom of endless night, Point them to its cheering light.
4  Onward speed thy radiant way, Harbinger of dawning day, Nations hail thee from afar, Hail the blessed temp'rance star.

1  THERE sprang a tree of deadly name,-
Its poisonous breath, its baleful dew Scorch'd the green earth like lava-flame, And every plant of promise slew.
2  From clime to clime, its branches spread Their fearful fruits of sin and wo,— The prince of darkness lov'd its shade, And toil'd its fiery seeds to sow.
3  Faith pour'd her prayer at midnight hour, The hand of zeal at noon-day wrought, And armor of celestial power,
The soldiers of the cross besought.
