William McCarty, comp.  The American National Song Book.  1842.
 
Washington
 
  HAIL! godlike Washington!
  Fair Freedom’s chosen son,
    Born to command!
While this great globe shall roll,
Thy deeds, from pole to pole,        5
Shall shake Columbia’s soul
    With virtue’s praise.
Millions, unborn, to save—
Freedom to worlds he gave—
    Liberty’s chief.        10
  Terrific god of war,
  Seated in Victory’s car,
  Fame hails him from afar,
    Virginia’s boast.
