It is the land which, through the years, the brave aspired to;
Whose shores with open arms have welcomed every creed and hue;
Where all ideas of "right and wrong" our forebears could devise
Have yielded and adapted in the name of compromise.
A place where words like "freedom" still inspire and enthrall
All those who forsake tyranny for justice under law.
A wise man said it is the last best hope mankind has got:
This land of never ending change we call the melting pot!
