The Conquering Hero
The Whigs retire, and Salisbury comes forth,
A fitting champion in a cause so just ;
He hears his country's call : he feels the worth
Of such deep confidence, such sacred trust.
It chose him after long and anxious thought ;
It chose him clearly, with united voice ;
It chose him in the hour of need—in short
It chose him when it had no other choice.
