You are the truest soul of man:
you are his strength, his might.
Set us afire, and temper us –
unite us in your light.

But by united minds that flow,
As sun-beams into sun-beams melt,
To light a frozen world below.

Shines along the quiet hours.

For whom the storm has passed, the sun has smiled,
Our clouds all scattered, all our stars united,
We claim thee, clasp thee, like a long-lost child.

One mingling flood of braided light,—
The red that fires the Southern rose,
With spotless white from Northern snows,
And, spangled o'er its azure, see
The sister Stars of Liberty!
