Once I redemption neither sought nor knew.
Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
"Their colour is a diabolic die."
Remember, Christians, Negro's, black as Cain,
May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.

Would now embrace thee, hovers o'er thine head.
Fain would the heav'n-born soul with her converse,
