Music
By Rembrandt Peale (1778–1860)
 
[Born in Bucks Co., Penn., 1778. Died in Philadelphia, Penn., 1860. Portfolio of an Artist. 1839.]

MUSIC, in her sovereign power,
  Measured by a master hand,
Fills with joy the lover’s bower,
  Animates the patriot band—
Music, voice of nature! still        5
Lead me captive to thy will.
 
Inspiration of the soul!
  Spirit of the painter’s art!
Eloquence whose strains control
  Boundless mind or bursting heart,—        10
Music, voice of nature! still
Lead me captive to thy will.
