Oh mother race to you I bring
This pledge of faith unwavering
this tribute to your glory
I know the pain that you did feel
when slavery crushed you with its heel
with your dear blood all gory

Sad days were those, sad days indeed
but through the land the fruitful seed
of better times was growing
the plant of freedom upward sprung
its blossoms are now blowing

They walk the fields where honor calls
their voices sound through senate halls
in majesty and power
the hymns they sing in beauty ring
and bolder grow each hour

Be proud my race in mind and soul
your name is fixed on glory's scroll
in characters of fire
in fame's bright sky your flags now fly
and truth shall lift them higher
