ACT 1 Sung By
Whence glows in each Columbian breast that flameTammany
Refulgent pow'r! whose gladsome rayManana
Dear woods! beneath whose spreading bowsManana
At early dawn to rouse the chaseManana
When dark and cheerless is the skyManana
Neer Or'noco's limpid streamMen, Zulla and Manana

See! the orb of night appearsManana
Pale chilly fear my heart assailsManana
Joy and mirth dispel, the pensive tears of griefChorus
ACT 3 Sung By
Fury swells my aching soulTammany
From they dear brow that frown removeManana
Soft peace, alas! from us is flownManana
The sun sets in night and then stars shun the day (Altered from the old Indian song)Tammany and Manana
Now let's forget each woe that's pastTammany, Manana and Chorus
Yes, he deserv'd our warmest praiseTammany and Manana
Oh Hero! sunk alas thy mightIndian Priests
You whose souls with virtue burnIndians and Spaniards
Indian maids your voices raiseChorus of Women
While we rear the standard highChorus
The Drama over- 't has been long the vogueFerdinand
