The following composition was originally intended to be sung on the Thanksgiving Day, appointed in consequence of the peace between the United States and Great Britain in 1783, but was not published until some years after that event. It is a fine specimen of the M patriotic hymns and psalms " of that period.
The Lord above, in tender love,
Hath sav'd us from our foes; Through Washington the thing is done,
The war is at a close.
America has won the day,
Through Washington, our chief;
Come let's rejoice with heart and voice, And bid adieu to grief.
