English.png English text

Rise, glory rise, in all thy charms,
Thy waving crest and glittering arms.
Spread thy gilded banners round
And make thy thundering courser bound.
Bid the drum and trumpet join,
Warm my soul with rage divine;
All thy pomps around thee call,
To conquer love will ask them all.
