Whilom of peace the fair domain,
The scene of desolation lie;

Or if with trembling hope she cast
Her looks on hours of glory past,
And burn again with virtuous fame
Her ancient honours to reclaim ;
And brace the corslet on her breast,
And
grasp

the
spear,

and wave the crest; Yet lies her course through war's ensanguined flood; Yet must she win her way through carnage and through blood.

Ah! happier Britain, o'er thy plain
Still smiling peace and freedom reign.
And while thy sons with pitying eye

Behold the field of ruin round them lie;
The storms that shake each neighbour realm with fear,
Like distant thunder die upon the ear ;

They bless the halcyon hours that gave,
To rule a people free and brave,

A patriot monarch all their own,
Their swords his bulwark, and their hearts his throne:

And while to this auspicious day
The muse devotes her tributary lay,

A nation's vows in choral pæan join,
And consecrate to fame a verse as mean as mine.'

6

Yet not to selfish thoughts confined,
Are the warm feelings of the virtuous mind :
The royal patriot, while he views
Peace o'er his realms her bliss diffuse,
Mourns for the sorrows that afflict mankind.
Go forth, my sons, he cries; my Britons, go
And rescue Europe from her ruthless foe.
Behold, in arms, Austria's imperial lord;
Behold Iberia draw the avenging sword
O let, with theirs, your mingling ensigns fly,

In the great cause of injured liberty !
Go forth, my sons, and to the world declare,
When suff’ring freedom calls, Britannia's arms are there.
