[Written for the Sentinel]

Hymn to Columbia

O Loved Columbia! If perchanceThy love for peace and right,Through the fell stress of circumstanceShall yield to war and night;Though on thy gracious face the smileShall for the moment cease,Yet may thy greatness in brief whileCompel enduring peace!

Columbia, child of liberty!Blest leader of the worldIn all that makes men high and free!Thy flag is aye unfurledFor freedom, friendship, brotherhood,For justice, kindness, right;Thou sheddest ne'er a brother's bloodBecause thine arm hath might!

We'd love to hear from you!
