our Nation is in comotion

They know not what to do

The Mormon Emigration

Puts them in a Stew

How to stop their coming

Is hard for to devise

For they come a cross the ocean

And down from the Skyes

The latter line is under ground

And vary hard to trace

The other tho above ground

Is open to Evry Race

For the Law does not Discriminate

As to any Class

And So the Mormons Emigrate

Their converted mass

A law must be enacted

To stop the dredful stream

Else all will go distracted

At the awful Scene

Of men with many Wives

And Children thus so rife

Spirits from the Skies

Clothed in mortal life

Something must be done

To check this over flow

Else we must Sercomb

To this fatal blow

At our Managamack Listons

Of ancient Rome

Made Sacred to Christons
