Hail Liberty!

Hail! liberty, supreme delight,
Thou idol of the mind,
Through every clime intend thy flight,
The world range unconfined.
________________________________

Chorus-
The virtues of the just and brave,
Exist alone with thee.
Nature never meant to form a slave,
Her birth-right’s liberty.
__________________________________

Thou’ all the tyrants in the world,
Conspire to crush thy fame,
Still shall thy banners be unfurled,
External be thy name.
__________________________________

Then let the world in one great band,
Of glorious unity.
Drive despotism from each land,
Or die for liberty.
___________________________________

Columbia how blest art thou,
Free from tyrannic sway,
Defend thy rights thy laws avow,
Drive discord far away.
____________________________________

And mayest thou to the end of time,
A sweet assylum be,
To patriots of every clime
Who sigh for liberty.
