None but a drunkard, bullied by his wife

For coming late, fears a domestic strife.

Though watchmen cry " Past two o'clock !

No. 2. CHORUS.

Hear us, great Rugwith, hear our pray'rs,

Defend thy British Isle,

Revive our hopes, disperse our fears ;

Descend ye pow'rs divine.

Descend in chariots of ethereal flame,

And touch the altars you defend ;

O save us !

O save our nation and our name !

No. 3.

Divine Andate, President of War,

The fortune of the day declare :

Shall we to the Romans yield, Or shall each arm that wields a spear,

Strike it through a mossy shield,

And dye with Roman blood the field ?

To arms !

To arms !

Your ensigns straight display

Now, set the battle in array,

The oracle of war declares

Success depends upon our hearts and spears.

No. 7.

SOLO (Soprano).

O lead me to some peaceful gloom,

Where none but sighing lovers come ; Where the shrill trumpets never sound,

But one eternal hush goes round.

There let me soothe my pleasing pain,

And never think of war again. What glory can a lover have,

To conquer, yet be still a slave.
