THANKSGIVING HYMN.                              379
Our Congress too, before they do,
Acknowledge Him supreme; Come let us all before Him fall,
And glorify His name.
1 A nd for our rulers pray. From among the hymns written on the return of peace, we select the following unique specimen, from a composition hy Oliver Arnold, the author of the parody on the " Banks of the Dee."
" Come, let us shout! and praise the Lord!
"What hath he left undone? Let's shout for him, and sing to him,
He gave us Washington! Lefs shout to liim, and pray to him,
And pray for Washington 1"
