They will use every art to disunite you,1
To conquer separately, by stratagem,2
Whom in a mass they fear—but be ye firm :—3
Boldly demand your long-forgotten rights,4
Your sacred, your inalienable freedom—5
Be bold—be resolute—be merciful !6
And while you spurn the hated name of slaves,7
Show you are men, and undivided hold8
The powers of mind and arm that heaven
has given !
