The Liberty of the Sons of God.

God made all his creatures free;

Life itself is liberty;

God ordained no other bands

Than united hearts and hands.

Sin the primal charter broke,—

Sin, itself earth’s heaviest yoke;

Tyranny with sin began,

Man o’er brute, and man o’er man.

But a better day shall be,

Life again be liberty,

And the wide world’s only bands

Love-knit hearts and love-linked hands.

So shall every slavery cease,

All God’s children dwell in peace,

And the new-born earth record

Love, and Love alone, is Lord.
