The defender of his country--the founder of liberty,
The friend of man,
History and tradition are explored in vain
For a parallel to his character.

And the noblest names of antiquity
Lose their lustre in his presence.
Born the benefactor of mankind,
He united all the greatness necessary
To an illustrious career.
Nature made him great,
He made himself virtuous.
