The Founding Fathers' Toil
The Pennsylvania State House is a Hall,
Once filled with counsel and debate for us,
A nation filled with war. Did many fall
That we may live? Alas, there were those just
Involved in personal despite. Such lust!
Such passion in those dueling--Hamilton
And Burr! O, do not think their action just,
But filthy with revenge. Let Lexington
And Concord start those fiery blows that won
Our nation for us; Great Awakening
Had filled with Gospel light--did they not run
To hear--this place, our home, and quickening
Such passion for the lost. This Gospel light
Must shine, our hearts alight, our souls held tight.
