33. “peace on earth.”

Peace! when over every land and sea
Is heard no more the cry of Slavery;
When bondmen are no longer bond, but free,
And freedmen shout aloud--“Sweet Liberty!”

[24] When brother's heart no longer burns with strife,
His hand no longer takes his brother's life;
When the sweet wild rose shall bloom and bud
Where battle-fields were drenched with human blood.
