    I have observed the misery of my people who are in Egypt; I have heard their cry on account of their taskmasters. Indeed, I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them from the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the country of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 3:7,8.

    I traveld thro’ a Land of Men
    A Land of Men & Women too,
    And heard & saw such dreadful things
    As cold Earth wanderers never knew.

    She was our land more than a hundred years
    Before we were her people.
