An anthem for Thanksgiving from Continental Harmony, pub. 1794. Suitable to be sung on the Anniversary of our Forefathers' landing in New England, Nov. 20th, Anno Domini 1620. Rouse ye Yankies and celibrate this Anniversary, and do not say on the 21st day of November, "I forgot what day it was yesterday".
Lyrics: Psalm 94 (Tate & Brady)

O Lord, our fathers oft have told in our attentive ears,
The wonders in their days performed, and elder times than theirs,
How Thou, to plant them here, did'st drive the heathen from this land
Dispeopled by repeated strokes of thy avenging hand.
