While gazing on the dreauy brow of night.

And thus, upb(jrne by inspiration's sway.
He soars bright-winged to the empyrean height

To greet the orient courier of the day.

Or, lighting in the Inuuble vale of life.

He cheers the lowly with tlie voico of song.
And nerves the toiler for the weary strife.

So that the weak in striving may be slmng.
And know the trials that to them liulong вАФ

May e'en assail the slaves of gilded state,
Till self-reliance leads the soul along,

And worth triumphant bursts tlie bonds of fate.
