To burry thence despairing slaves THE gratituile we owe to you,
O'er mountains of resenting waves!

Our tongues cannot express; For lo! Britannia, bath'd in tears, Our words are few, our hearts are full. 'I rembles to count her guilty years ; Yet we'll the debt confess : Implores Compassion's boundless sea "To wash th'inveterate stain away;

You found us helpless, dumb, and poor, vui quits the trade in luuman blood, Unable to complain : Repentant at the feet of God!

Unask’l, you tenderid that relief
Soon other nations shall aspire,

Which nitigates our pain!
And copy what they now admire, -
Till not a sail shall be uufurl'd

Yes ;, we are taught to comprehend,To terrify the negro-world!

To use and value speech :

“ Hard is the case" of Deaf and Dumb, For shall Homanity desist

Who no such boon can reach ! *
From her appeal while slaves exist!
Meininks, I hear the fetters fall,

Doom'd yet to live, and not to know An Freeilom offer bliss to all ;

The end why life was given, White, pointing to the Christian plan, They breathe unconscious of their state, She shews the love of God to Man.

Nor hope,

nor think of leav'n! Car hope grows brighter from this happy day!

O pardon then, if we should aim Who does not hail the glorious First To plead their cause to-day, of May!

And wave your foating banners io the skies!

And, conquering and in congner, onward move.
