Columbia's Gretest Glory.

Columbia's greatest glory
Was her loved Chief fair Freedom’s friend
Whose fame, renowned in story,
Shall last till time itself shall end.
Ye Muses, bring your harps, [bers run,
And sing sweet lays that in smooth num-
In praise of our great hero,
The great, the God-like Washington,

His fame through future ages,
Columbia’s freeborn sons shall praise,
The anthem every heart engages,
All tongues shall join to sing his praise
With joy sound forth his virtuous worth,
And tell the glorious acts he’s done;
Of all mankind the greatest
Was our beloved Washington.

And now thou Great Creator. [age
Who formed his youth and watched his
Since thou, in course of nature,
Hast called him from the earthly stage
Great Power above enthroned in love,
Who wast before this world began,
Receive into thy bosom,
Our virtuous hero, George Washington.
