"Oh America you have adorned yourself in beauty and the smell of your perfume attracts all nations unto you.
My father chose you America, even as a man would his bride, he praised you with his lips, and he loved you with his heart.
My father spoke of your sweet words, you promised him equality. I see no brown ,or white, nor black, you boasted of your justice that it would be for all.
faithful are your words America, for I was born within your gates, planted in your soil as a seed was I. You nurtured me, you taught me in your ways.
I took arms for thee America that your beauty may remain, why do my brothers turn their face from me, as though they do not know me? Do I embarrass them?
I hear my brothers whisper, and their actions towards me recommend, "go home from where you came they say, return unto your mother land," but America you are my mother, I know no other.
As for me America, I will always love you faithfully, I will not trade you for another, I will be vigilant for thee, that your beauty may remain for all eternity."
