A nation was born in a vast new domain.
The travail attending,
And childhood defending,
Through trials unending,
Was one who true liberty strove to attain.

This valiant commander, intrepid of soul,
When armies defied him,
Calamities tried him,
And help seemed denied him,
With purpose unwavering pressed on toward the goal.

A leader undaunted in strife or in peace,
A statesman of vision,
Who made wise decision
And sponsored provision
For a unified country in power to increase.

He sought not for self, nor coveted fame.
He wrought for the nation,
To lay firm foundation
For continued duration
Of a self-governed people. May they honor his name!
