My bow I set on high forever,
Of my covenant 'tis the sign,
And this bond henceforth none may sever,
Token fair, placed by pow'r divine.
When you see radiant bright,
the rainbow bridge the heavens,
Man shall remember then,
Man shall bear then in mind
that it stands evermore
our covenants sure sign,
and the pledge and the symbol
of the peace that I promise you.
