Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: “America.”

My country ’tis for thee,
Dark land of slavery,
For thee I weep;
Land where the slave has sighed,
And where he toiled and died,
To serve a tyrant’s pride,
For thee I weep.

From every mountainside,
Upon the ocean’s tide,
They call on thee;
Amid thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills,
I hear a voice which trills,
“Let all go free.”

Our fathers’ God, to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we pray;
Soon may our land be pure,
Let freedom’s light endure,
And liberty secure,
Beneath Thy sway.
