[69] And from that rich and sunny land
     The song of grateful millions rise,
Like that of Israel's ransomed band
     Beneath Arabia's skies:

And all who now are bound beneath
     Our banner's shade, our eagle's wing,
From Slavery's night of moral death
     To light and life shall spring.

Broken the bondman's chain, and gone
     The master's guilt, and hate, and fear,
And unto both alike shall dawn
     A New and Happy Year.

1839.
