A Chant of Liberty

Sing, ye hills!Shout, ye valleys!Resound with song, ye mountains and moors!Re-echo with rejoicing, ye crags and caves!Sing, O ocean, of libertyAnd earth, chant ye of freedom!For the long night of captivity is ended,The chains of our bondage are broken, and emancipation is born.Sin, where art thou?And woe and affliction, whither…

The Law of Liberty

When a deed is done for Freedom, through the broad earth’s aching breastRuns a thrill of joy prophetic, trembling on from east to west,And the slave, where’er he cowers, feels the soul within him climbTo the awful verge of manhood, as the energy sublimeOf a century bursts full-blossomed on the…

Liberty

The unwise say, "Our sufferings are unjust,Our pains and woes rise from the scattered dustOf sinful ancestors; we are not free;Our fathers robbed us of our libertyBy what they did; and we are weak and frailBecause they erred; they fell, and we must fail. "Our drunkenness comes from their love…

The Perfect Law of Liberty

The Perfect Law of Liberty is the ultimate attainment of Ideal Manhood—the establishment of the Divine Order in Man. To the select few it comes comparatively early in life as a special gift of Heaven, and manifests itself as one of the forms of genius—an intuitive inclination of the soul…

So let my soul vibrateWith Virtue ever,That I incorporateIn each endeavorThe essence the Eternal only yields. So let me live, that DeathHath terrors none.For he who triumphethO'er Death hath wonThe Liberation he who conquers wields.

Law and Liberty

The Transcendent Liberty is arrived at through the active operation of Law. Liberty apart from law is inconceivable. When a man thinks of light and dark, life and death, right and wrong, good and evil, he unconsciously conceives of law; he also declares and prophecies the Liberty which ensouls the…
