For freedom and religion
They were resolved to stray,
And trace the desert regions Of North America.
Heaven was their sole protector
While on the roaring tide, Kind fortune their director,
And Providence their guide. If I am not mistaken,
About the first of May, This voyage was undertaken
For North America.
If rightly I remember,
This country to explore, They landed in November
On Plymouth's desert shore. The savages were nettled,
With fear they fled away, So peaceably they settled
In North America.
