Guide me to that place where humanity doth live with pride…


Britannia owns her Independent Reign,

Hibernia, Scotia, and the Realms of Spain;

And Great Germania’s ample Coast admires

The generous Spirit that Columbia fires.

Auspicious Heaven shall fill with fav’ring Gales,

Where e’er Columbia spreads her swelling Sails:

To every Realm shall Peace her Charms display,

And Heavenly Freedom spread her gold Ray.

Phillis Wheatley, 1753 – 1784
