At a Glance
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”).
