The New Birth.
202

I am free! I am free! I have broken away,

From the chambers of night, to the splendors of day;

All the phantoms that darkened around me are gone,

And a spirit of light is now leading me on.

Earth appeareth in garments of beauty new drest;

Brighter thoughts, brighter feelings, spring forth in my breast;

Happy voices are floating in music above;

All creation is full of the glory of love.

God of truth! it is Thou who hast shed down each ray

Of the sunshine that blesses and gladdens my way;

From the depths of my spirit, to Thee will I give

Ever-thankful affection, as long as I live.
