A SONG.
While awful wisdom hourly waits, To adorn the councils of her states.
Brave Washington arrives,
Arrayed in warlike fame,
While in his soul revives
Great Marlboro's martial flame, To lead your conquering armies on To lasting glory and renown.
To aid the glorious cause,
Experienc'd Lee has come,
Renown'd in foreign wars,
A patriot at home. While valiant Putnam's warlike deeds, Amongst the foe a terror spreads.
Let Britons proudly boast, " That their two thousand braves, Can drive our numerous host, And make us all their slaves ; " While twice six thousand quake with fear, Nor dare without their lines appear.
