Ode on Science

Sharp Key on G.

1.

The morning sun shines from the east,

And spreads his glories to the west,

All nations with his beams are blest,

211

Where'er the radiant light appears.

So science spreads her lucid ray

O'er lands which long in darkness lay

She visits fair Columbia,

And sets her sons among the stars.

212

Fair freedom her attendant waits,

To bless the portals of her gates,

To crown the young and rising states

With laurels of immortal day:

The British yoke, the Gallic chain,

Was urged upon our necks in vain,

All haughty tyrants we disdain,

And shout, Long live America.
