[345] Who, in the power a holy purpose lends,
     Guided his people unto nobler ends,
And left them worthier of the name of Friends.

And lo! the fulness of the time has come,
     And over all the exile's Western home,
From sea to sea the flowers of freedom bloom!

And joy-bells ring, and silver trumpets blow;
     But not for thee, Pastorius! Even so
The world forgets, but the wise angels know.
