Columbia's Glory

Columbia’s Glory.

The sea, is Columbia’s glory,
The bounding wave! her throne;
For ages, bright in story
The origin is her own.
In war the first, the fearless,
Her banner leads the free.
In peace she reigns as peerless,
The Empress of the sea.

The sea is Columbia’s splendour,
Her wealth the mighty main;
She is the world’s defender,
The feeble to sustain;
Her gallant sons, in story,
Shine bravest of the brave.
Oh! Columbia’s strength and glory
Are on her ocean’s wave.

Thou loveliest land of beauty,
Where dwells domestic worth;
Where harmony and duty
Entwine each heart and heart
Thy rock is freedom’s pillow,
The rampart of the brave.
Oh! long as rolls the billow,
Shall Columbia rule the wave.
