Description: From a collection of Drinking songs
Original text and translations
The glass was just tim'd to the critical hour,
When we heard the report of the guns of the Tower;
Thanks to kind heav'n, who the blessing contriv'd,
No sooner we drank it, but our Monarch arriv'd.
The theme let's continue, and our bumpers advance:
Success to old England, confusion to France!
