To: stars & stripes forever
An incredibly beautiful hymn. I used to love singing it in our school choir.
The article is worth reading to the end, for what it says about the part Islam played in the history of slavery.

I have heard the last stanza on occasion changed to "Let us live to make men free" and when they tried that with our church choir I just sang the original words. Nobody objected, but if they had they would have been talking to the hand. It's a battle hymn.
