From all division let our land be free, For God has made her one: complete she lies Within the unbroken circle of the skies,And round her indivisible the seaBreaks on her single shore; while only we, Her foster children, bound with sacred ties Of one dear blood, one storied enterprise,Are negligent of her integrity.--Her seamless garment, at great Mammon's nod, With hands unfilial we have basely rent, With petty variance our souls are spent,And ancient kinship under foot is trod: O let us rise, united, penitent,And be one people,--mighty, serving God!
