Great Washington

by Annette Wynne

Great Washington,
O, to be a worthy son
To you, to hear the clarion call
Of home and country over all,
And to answer it like you,
Standing firm and staunch and true,
Head erect, and facing foe,
Strong in weal and strong in woe,
In my country's need;
O, to be indeed
A worthy son
To you, great Washington!
