HAIL peerless Health, ordained with life decree,|
The vital sun of mortal day to be -
Apart from thee men's' spheres their glow maintain -
Glad cycles roll, their joys' revolve in vain!
Touched by thy beam chill Nature sings' with glee,
While lumined scenes of earth and air and sea,
In harmonies of cheery tone agree,
And join in grateful chant with one refrain -
Hail peerless' Health!Pent hearts from pris"ning weakness breaking free,
In light of thine find their releasing key;
Reft of thy gleam no rays for man remain
Save those that hallowed shine for Heavenly gain,
And priceless pay alone for loss' of thee -
Hail peerless' Health!
