The Union Pyramid

THE UNION PYRAMID
TO BE READ ASCENDING or descending:

President,
Heaven sent,
Ruling our land,
With cautious hand,
Maintain   thy   stand;
No    crawling    partisan:
Firm,  genial, earnest  man,
Striving   our   land   to   save,
Great  patriot,  true  and  brave,
Quenched    by   thy   patriot    fire,
Base   faction’s   baleful   lights  expire
Making   the  nation   hopeful  of    futurity,
By  exercising  thy  great  power  with  purity,
Our country’s trust,  midst hours  of perils sent;
All good men  pray for thee,  O upright  President!

The Golden Era (San Francisco, California) Feb 1, 1863
