WHEN lakes of western waters, prison bound
From breaking of the world's first crimson morn,
Searched with a strong and ancient hope forlorn
Their strange and undiscovered shores around,
And yet no welcome door to freedom found,
But saw beyond Niagara's neck of land
The distant glories of the Atlantic grand
And heard the eternal thunder's muffled sound;
Then, as some mountain glacier, huge and deep,
That grinds and crushes each opposing foe
Which from the valley's liberties would keep
Its mighty weight of captive ice and snow,
The waters moved and took Niagara's leap
And thundered to the sea with joyful flow.
