My Country

My Country Thou dearer and grander than all other earth,
With clime sweet and balmy, fair land of my birth;
May valiant thy youth grow, more stalwart, more brave,
Till ne’er a poor laggard, nor coward, nor slave
Is seen in thy valleys, nor met on thy hills,
Where babbles the brook, or the bright dew distills.

Oh, Country of mine! May thy humblest son be
Ever true to thy genius, 'brave, happy and free.'
