Hail, Temple Great of Science dear, Where youth forever seeks the lure Of light beyond the years obscure That saw it first on earth, Thou fountain from the springs whereof Is quenched thirst that the mind inflames The nation blesses and acclaims You and enfolds.
Warble, O birds; O bugles, blow Wave of blue sea, arpeggios light, And breath of autumn wind, to time To all the world, say: “Temple bright, Hold high your name since well you know Your lineage noble and sublime,”
