Seite 16 - Whose limbs are worn with chains, Whose tears bedew our plains, Whose blood our glory stains, In gloom who grope : Shout ! for the hour draws nigh, That gives you liberty ! And from the dust, — So long your vile embrace, — Uprising, take your place Among earth's noblest race, By right, the first ! The night — the long, long night Of infamy and slight, Shame and disgrace.
Seite 12 - Afric's captive claim, Loads the sad gale with startling moan, The frown of deep indignant blame Bend not on Southern climes alone. Her toil, and chain, and scalding tear, Our daily board with luxuries deck, And to dark slavery's yoke severe, Our fathers help'd to bow her neck. If slumbering in the thoughtful breast, Or justice or compassion dwell, Call from their couch the hallowed guest, The deed to prompt, the prayer to swell. Oh, lift the hand, and Peace shall bear Her olive where the palm tree...
Seite 5 - Afric's son shall hear no more The tyrant's in the Christian's name; Nor tears of wasting anguish pour Unpitied, o'er his life of shame ; But taught to love thee, by the love That bids his long-worn fetters break, He, too, shall lift his soul above, And serve thee for thy mercy's sake. THE...
Seite 11 - The thirst for gold. Shall not thy thunders speak, Where Mammon's altars reek, Where maids and matrons shriek, Bound, bleeding, sold ? Hear'st thou, O God, those chains, Clanking on Freedom's plains, By Christians wrought! Them, who those chains have worn, Christians from home have torn, Christians have hither borne, Christians have bought ! Cast down, great God, the fanes That, to unhallowed gains, Round us have risen — Temples, whose priesthood pore Moses and Jesus o'er, Then holt the black man's...
Seite 9 - CHRISTIAN mother ! when thy prayer Trembles on the twilight air, And thou askest God to keep, In their waking and their sleep, Those whose love is more to thee Than the wealth of land or sea, Think of those who wildly mourn For the loved ones from them torn ! Christian daughter, sister, wife!
Seite 5 - Father, when the softened heart Is lifted up in prayer to thee, When earthly thoughts awhile depart, And leave the mounting spirit free — Then teach us that our love, like thine, O'er all the realms of earth should flow, A shoreless stream, a flood divine, To bathe and heal the heart of wo. Then...
Seite 19 - Let Mammon hold, while Mammon can, The bones and blood of living man ; Let tyrants scorn, while tyrants dare, The shrieks and writhings of despair ; An end will come — it will not wait, Bands, yokes, and scourges have their date, Slavery itself must pass away, And be a tale of yesterday.
Seite 16 - YE who in bondage pine, Shut out from light divine, Bereft of hope ; Whose limbs are worn with chains, Whose tears bedew our plains, Whose blood our glory stains, In gloom who grope...
Seite 11 - Quench, righteous God ! the thirst, That Congo's sons hath cursed — The thirst for gold ; Shall not thy thunders speak, Where Mammon's altars reek, Where maids and matrons shriek, Bound, bleeding, sold ? 3 Hear'st thou, O God ! those chains, That clank on Freedom's plains, By Christians wrought?
Seite 19 - Imploies of God to guide and save, Then let these helpless suppliants share From mercy's store the mite they crave. Touch deep for them the pitying breast, Bid bounty's stream flow warm and free For who can tell among the blest, How sweet their harps of praise may be T LYDIA MARIA CHILD.
