He tore me from my children's home, –
He tore me from their mother's grave:-
Is there no day of wrath to come? And will no day of vengeance come
Made of Shall man his God for all brave
Shall earth be made a desert still –
Shall heaven be outraged – heaven that gave
To me – to all the uproaring A form erect – an upward will
A heavenly hope – to free & slave?

What! have we not a heart soul to feel
And eyes to weep & hearts to bleed –
The white man's heart is hardened stone or steel –
Ours – ours is human flesh indeed –
If hated – suffering – revenge – if hope – despair
love – memory – all that passions breed –
Or spirits past for – good & evil angles share
The man – of man, or slave enslaved or freed.
