151 ページ - No towers along the steep; Her march is o'er the mountain waves, Her home is on the deep. With thunders from her native oak, She quells the floods below, — As they roar on the shore, When the stormy winds do blow ; When the battle rages loud and long, And the stormy winds do blow.
136 ページ - Mine through sunshine, storm, and snows; Seasons may roll, But the true soul Burns the same, where'er it goes.
