Now we have peace, and may increase In number, wealth, and arts ;
If every one, like Washington, Will strive to do their parts.
Then let's agree, since we are free, All needless things to shun ;
And lay aside all pomp and pride, Like our great Washington.
Use industry, and frugal be, Like Washington the brave;
So shall we see, 'twill easy be, Our country for to save,
From present wars and future foes,
And all that we may fear; While Washington, the great brave one,
Shall as our chief appear.
Industry and frugality,
Will all our taxes pay; In virtuous ways, we'll spend our days,
And for our rulers pray.1
