Ĉu antaŭ longe paŝis Li

Representative Text

1. Ĉu antaŭ longe paŝis Li en mezo de la amikar' —
La Diŝafido — tie ĉi sur Anglaj montoj kaj kampar'?
Ĉu nigrajn montojn ĉirkaŭ ni briligis Divizaĝa lum'?
Ĉu Jerusalem estis vi, infera fabrikeja fum'?

2. Alportu sagojn de dezir', kaj arkon el flamanta or',
Kun fajra ĉaro de aspir' kaj mia lanc' — Ho nuboj, for!
Laboros mi sen tim' aŭ trem' kun glavo preta por komand',
Ĝis staros Nov-Jerusalem' en Angla bela verda land'.
