4th. ORIGINAL HYMN......Written to Pleyel’s Dirge.
By Herman Mann.
LO! Two mighty SUNS have set
In conjunction, as they rose,
On the Day, when Freemen met,
Leaving day, that ne’er shall close;
Thus, the Era speaks anew—
When, a Herald from the skies,
Having passed a bright review,
Bade them to new glories, rise!
Heaven pursued its best intent
Toward these Sages, jointly bound;
And, to Both the mandate sent,
That the shaft might Neither wound.
Daughters, here the theme prolong—
Glow your breasts with reverence due;
Hymn their honours in your song—
They have purchased bliss for you.
Sons of Freemen, catch their flame—
They have made you great and free;
Let your Children lisp their name,
Till our race shall cease to be.
5th. EULOGY.—By Horace Mann, Esq.
8th. ANTHEM.—“The Dying Christian.”
