Roll on, Niagara, as thou hast ever rolled,
Since thy great Maker called thee into being;
But wilt thou never stop? O yes, thou wilt,
When the great Archangel sounds the final trump —
One foot upon the sea, and one on shore —
And swears that time shall be no more forever;
The thundering sound that swells upon our ears,
Will then be silenced, and the mighty flood,
That pours itself o’er the tremendous precipice,
Will cease to be. — There is but ONE ALONE —
The first, last, ever-living Trinity,
That can control thee whensoe’er he will.
H.B. Tuttle was from Lansingburgh, N.Y.
