[117] Ye deal is felt the wide earth through;
     Whatever here uplifts the low
Or humbles Freedom's hateful foe,
     Blesses the Old World through the New.

Take heart! The promised hour draws near;
     I hear the downward beat of wings,
And Freedom's trumpet sounding clear:
     “Joy to the people! woe and fear
To new-world tyrants, old-world kings!”
