COMMON PRAYER FOR THE TIMES.
Allied by blood, and interest too,
Soon let them re-unite, May Heaven tyrannic minds subdue,
Haste, haste the pleasing sight.
May ev'ry morn and ev'ning prayer
Repeat this just petition, What thinking Christian can forbear,
Appris'd of our condition.
Britannia's sins are our worst foes,
Let this be Britain's creed, For those who God and man oppose,
Must rebels be indeed.
This rebel-host how num'rous grown !
This growth kind Heaven forbid ! 'Tis fear'd some are too near the throne,
And seem securely hid.
Just Heaven, to light all rebels bring, Who hate or love the steeple.
Rebels to Grod, and to the king, And rebels to the people.
