From Greenland’s Icy Mountains

From Greenland’s icy mountains, 
From India’s coral strand,

Where Africa’s bright fountains 
Roll down their golden sand,
From many an ancient river, 
From many a palmy plain,
They call us to deliver 
Their land from error’s chain. (Verse 1)

Jane of Lantern Hill, chapter 9 (“There was something fascinating about coral strands and icy mountains”).
