John Peter Muhlenberg: Major-General, Congressman, Senator & Pastor; with his Pastor brother Frederick-First Speaker of U.S. House - American Minute with Bill Federer
The pastor rose: the prayer was strong;
The psalm was warrior David's song ...
... In this the dawn of Freedom's day
There is a time to fight and pray!'
... And now before the open door-
The warrior priest had ordered so-
The enlisting trumpet's sudden soar
Rang through the chapel, o'er and o'er,
Its long reverberating blow, ...
... "Who dares"-this was the patriot's cry,
As striding from the desk he came -
"Come out with me, in Freedom's name,
For her to live, for her to die?"
A hundred hands flung up reply,
A hundred voices answered "I!"
