Ii.

Sing the bridal of nations! with chorals of love
     Sing out the war-vulture and sing in the dove,
Till the hearts of the peoples keep time in accord,
     And the voice of the world is the voice of the Lord!
Clasp hands of the nations
     In strong gratulations:
The dark night is ending and dawn has begun;
     Rise, hope of the ages, arise like the sun,
All speech flow to music, all hearts beat as one!
