The Founding Fathers' Toil

Updated on June 14, 2014

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.
