Freedom And Peace
When long thick Tempests waste the Plain
And Lightnings cleave an angry Sky,
Sorrow invades each anxious Swain—
And trembling Nymphs to shelter fly!
But let the Sun illume the skies,
They hail his beam with grateful eyes.

And stern INJUSTICE rules the Throne,
Beneath the Yoke meek VIRTUE bends,
And modest TRUTH is heard to groan!
But, when fair FREEDOM's Star appears,
Hush'd are their sighs and calm'd their fears.
And who, when Nations long oppress'd
Decree to curb th' Oppressor's pride,
