Prayer for Liberty

Dublin Core

Title

Prayer for Liberty

Description

Roll on, then cheerful day, 
When tyranny's proud away,

Stern as the grave,

Shall to the ground he hurled,
And freedom's flag unfurled,
Shall wave, throughout the world,

O'er every slave.


Trump of grand jubilee,
Each o'er land and see

Freedom for all!

Let the glad tidings fly,
And every tribe reply,
Glory to [?] on high,

At slavery's fall.


Free, too, the captive mind
By darkness long confined,

In slavery's night;

The Savior's name extend,
Virtue with freedom blend,
And full salvation send

With freedom's light.
