OF CHRISTENDOM.                         93
Saint George he was for England,
Saint Dennis was for France,                    25°
Saint James for Spain, whose valiant hand
Did Christian fame advance : Saint Anthony for Italy,
Andrew for Scots ne'er fails, Patrick too stands for Ireland,                      %*
Saint David was for "Wales.
Thus have you those stout champions names
In this renowned song: Young captive ladies bound in chains,
Confined in castles strong,                          &>
They did by knightly prowess free,
True honour to maintain : Then let their lasting memory
From age to age remain.
