[373] The hills that have watched afar
     The valleys ablaze with war
Shall look on the tasselled corn;
     And the dust of the grinded grain,
Instead of the blood of the slain,
     Shall sprinkle thy banks, Big Horn!

The Ute and the wandering Crow
     Shall know as the white men know,
And fare as the white men fare;
     The pale and the red shall be brothers,
One's rights shall be as another's,
     Home, School, and House of Prayer!

O mountains that climb to snow,
     O river winding below,
Through meadows by war once trod,
     O wild, waste lands that await
The harvest exceeding great,
     Break forth into praise of God!
