ON INDEPENDENCE.
145
In a cause that's so righteous, come let us agree, And from hostile invaders set America free, The cause is so glorious we need not to fear, But from merciless tyrants we'll set ourselves clear.
Heaven's blessing attending us, no tyrant shall say, That Americans e'er to such monsters gave way, But fighting we'll die in America's cause, Before we'll submit to tyrannical laws.
George the Third, of Great Britain, no more shall he
reign, With unlimited sway o'er these free States again, Lord North, nor old Bute, nor none of their clan, Shall ever be honor'd by an American.
May Heaven's blessings descend on our United States, And grant that the union may never abate; May love, peace, and harmony, ever be found, For to go hand in hand America round.
Upon our grand Congress may Heaven bestow, Both wisdom and skill our good to pursue; On Heaven alone dependent we'll be, But from all earthly tyrants we mean to be free.
