English.png English text

Behold! blest peace, tho' banish'd long,
It reigns with us once more;
No more the cannon thunders strong,
The storm at length is o'er.

This happy land. Oh! Lovely peace
Now hails thy blest domain,
And sees, with joy that long shall last,
The clouds disperse again.

Fair commerce now, in bounteous share,
Again its blessings pours;
Contentment lightens ev'ry care,
And bliss complete is ours.

Spoiler: revealed phrase "It rains, thunders, hails, lightens, pours"
