Columbia weeps! Her cherished son,
Who struck her fetters to the ground,
Who saved the land of Washington,
Has passed from earth's most distant bound.

His spirit went to realms on high;
His dust, alone, the earth could claim;
His memory will never die
While freemen live to bless his name.

Columbia swears anew her vow
To guard the birthright of the free;
Unsheathed, her sword of Justice now
Since Mercy fell by Tyranny.

Our nation's hopes and fears alike
Are with the land our fathers trod,
And while for Freedom now we strike,
Our future is alone with God.
