dear Charles and student

there an R package called syuzhet which has sentiment lexicons included.
Another option is to use the R-package tidytext which includes the
NRC-lexicon. The manuals provide some examples on how to use it. The
drawback is, you need to have experience with R or learn it. It's not a
waste because R can do a lot more than sentiment analysis.
These packages and R are for free.

hope this helps
best Maurice
