Songs That Every Child Should Know 193
When royal James possess'd the crown,
And Popery came in fashion, The penal laws I hooted down
And read the Declaration: The Church of Rome I found would fit
Full well my constitution; And I had been a Jesuit
But for the Revolution. And this is law, etc.
When William was our king declar'd,
To ease the nation's grievance, With this new wind about I steer'd,
And swore to him allegiance. Old principles I did revoke,
Set conscience at a distance; Passive obedience was a joke,
A jest was non-resistance. And this is law, etc. 13
