Dr. Joseph Warren, c.1777
That Seat of Science Athens,|
And Earth's great Mistress Rome,
Where now are all their Glories,
We scarce can find their Tomb;
Then guard your Rights, Americans!
Nor stoop to lawless Sway,
Oppose, oppose, oppose, oppose,
My brave America.
2. Proud Albion bow'd to Caesar,
3. We led fair Freedom hither,
4. Torn from a World of Tyrants,|
Beneath this western Sky,
We form'd a new Dominion,
A Land of liberty;
The World shall own their masters here,
Then hasten on the Day,
Huzza, huzza, huzza, huzza,
For brave America.
5. God bless this maiden Climate,
6. Lift up your Heads my Heroes!
7. Some future Day shall crown us,|
The Masters of the Main,
And giving Laws and Freedom,
To subject France and Spain;
When all the Isles o'er Ocean spread
Shall tremble and obey,
Their Lords, their Lords, their Lords, their Lords
Of brave America.
