Henry Ancrum: A Tale of the Last War in New Zealand, Volume 1



From lands of torrid glory,
To north and southern seas,
The self-same joyous story
Is borne on every breeze;
Till all the clanging steeples
Of Christendom rejoice,
And all the banded peoples
Acclaim with one glad voice.

O Lord of all creation!
Our prayer with favour hear,
And grant her preservation
For many a coming year.
