And rail thy Slanderers as they will,
“ With all thy faults I love thee still :''
For faults thou hast, of heinous size;
Repent, renounce them, ere they rise
In judgment :--lest thine Ocean-wall
With boundless ruin round thee fall,
And that which was thy mightiest stay
Sweep all thy rocks like sand away.

Yes, thou hast faults, of heinous size,
From which I turn with weeping eyes ;
On these let them that hate thee dwell :
Yet one I spare not,-one I tell ;
Tell with a whisper in thine ear;
O may it wring thy heart with fear!
O that my weakest word might roll
Like heaven's own thunder thro' thy soul !

There is a lie in thy right hand;
A bribe, corrupting all the land;
There is within thy gates a pest, --
Gold and a Babylonish vest;
Not hid in shame-concealing shade,
But broad against the Sun display'ıl.
These, tell it not,-it must be told ;
These are by Lot-by Lottery-sold:
And these, thy Children, (taught to sin,)
Verture two worlds at once to win;
Nay thy deluded Statesmen stake
THYSELF, -and lose thee, for their sake!
---Lose thee ?--they shall not;-HE, whose will
Is Nature's law, preserves thee still ;
And while the uplifted holt impends,
ONE WARNING MORE his mercy sends.

O Britain ! O my Country! bring
Forth from thy camp tl' accursed thing;
Consign it to remorseless fire,
Watch till the latest spark expire,
Then casi the ashes on the wind,
Nor leave one atsin-wreck behind.

So may thy wealth and power increase ;
So inay thy people dwell in peace;
On Thee the Almighty's glory rest,
And ail the world in Thee be blest.
