And librrol hand our autumn r4•nos!
No firstlings orour ports we
NO soaring clouds of incense
But on Thy hallowed shrine «e toy
Gur grateful hearts in saerifice,
Burn on thy breath, the lap Of Spring '
Was heaped with mAnyia l blooming &Aver
And smiling Summer jnyed to bring
The sunshine and the gentle shower;
And Autumn's rich luauriance now—
The ripening seed, the bursting shell,
And gulden shear. and laden bough—
The fulness of Thy bounty tell;
No menial throng, in princely dome,
Here wait a titled furd'a behest;
But many a fair and peaceful home
Hath won thy peaceful dove a guest,
No groves of palm our fields adorn—
No myrtle shades or orange bowers—
But rutting meads of golden corn,
And fields of waving grain are ours.
Safe in Thy care the landscape o'er
Our flocks and herds sectirtly stray;
No tyrant master claims our store,—
No ruthless robber rends away,-
No fierce volcano's withering shower—
No fell simoon with poisonous breath—
No burning sans with baleful power.
Awake the fiery plagues of death.
And here shall rise our song to Thee,
Where lengthened vales and pastures lie,
And streams go singing wild 'and free,
Beneath a blue and smiling sky,
Where neer %gas reared a mortal throne,
Where crowned oppressor never trod.
Here—at the throne of Heaven alone,
Shall man, in reverence, bow to God.
