In chariots of light from the regions of day,
The Goddess of Liberty came;
Ten thousand celestials directed the way,
And thither conducted the dame,
This fair budding branch, from the garden above,
Where millions with millions agree;
She bro’t in her hand, as a pledge of her love,
The plant she call’d Liberty Tree.
This heav’nly exotic struck deep in the ground,
Like native it flourish’d and bore;
The fame of its fruit drew the nations around,
To seek out its peaceable shore.
Unmindful of names or distinction they came,
For freemen like brothers agree:
With one mind endow’d, they one friendship pursu’d;
Their temple was Liberty Tree.
