Some sipping punch, some sipping tea,
But, as you by their faces see,
All silent and all damn’d !
Stern Daughter of the voice of God !
O Duty ! if that name thou love,
Who art a light to guide, a rod
To check the erring and reprove.
The soul was like a Star, and dwelt apart;
Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like the sea :
Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,
So didst thou travel on life’s common way;
In cheerful godliness, and yet thy heart
The lowliest duties
One great society alone on earth :
The noble Living and the noble Dead.
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
Two voices are there : one is of the sea,
One of the mountains; each a mighty Voice,
In both from age to age thou didst rejoice,
They were thy chosen music, Liberty!
We wear a face of joy, because
We have been glad of yore.
