A Legacy of Faith and Duty
Never before in the course of these United States has there been a greater need to shore up the foundations of our nation's character and spiritual resolve. Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, admonished us to "remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set."
Our forefathers' strong faith in God and their personal sacrifice were the pillars upon which our republic was founded. To allow our Christian heritage to be hidden or removed from the halls of history would be a mockery of their faith in Almighty God. As stated by George Washington, the father of our nation, "The Hand of providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations."
The George Washington Society™ seeks to rekindle the smoldering fire of our founding fathers' spiritual legacy and carry the torch passionately for future generations who follow.
Read about recently announced plans to develop a Revolutionary War Art Museum at the George Washington Inn® where George Washington's legacy of faith and duty is memorialized in historical American art and other related venues facilitated by an inn built as a replica of Mount Vernon.
The National Hymn
(Written for the centennial celebration of the United States Constitution, 1887)
God of our fathers, whose almighty hand
Leads forth in beauty all the starry band
Of shining worlds in splendor through the skies
Our grateful songs before Thy throne arise.
Thy love divine hath led us in the past,
In this free land by Thee our lot is cast,
Be Thou our Ruler, Guardian, Guide and Stay,
Thy Word our law, Thy paths our chosen way.
From war’s alarms, from deadly pestilence,
Be Thy strong arm our ever sure defense;
Thy true religion in our hearts increase,
Thy bounteous goodness nourish us in peace.
Refresh Thy people on their toilsome way,
Lead us from night to never ending day;
Fill all our lives with love and grace divine,
And glory, laud, and praise be ever Thine.
