The title page of the Table Rock Album

Hark, hark!  ‘t is Niagara’s mighty roar,
As o’er the ledge St. Lawrence’ waters pour.
Father Omnipotent!  in this we see
An emblem fit of vast eternity;
As downwards in their course the waters flow,
And then are lost in the abyss below,
So haste thy creatures onward to that bourne
From whence no travelers shall e’er return.
