True English Men, drink a good health to the Miter,
Let our Church ever Flourish, tho' her Enemies spite her;

May their cunning and Forces no longer prevail,
But their malice, as well as their Arguments, fail:

Then remember the Seven, who supported our Cause,
As stout as our Martyrs, and as just as our Laws.
