The Revolution - Lewes Bonfire Night Celebrations

« Groping The Pope

Fireworks Poem »

Patriots of Britain Great,
Now join to celebrate
Two great events;
Gun-powder Treason and
The Revolution grand;
Joy echo through the land;
Time now presents.

Rome, as our records say,
Aimed upon this day,
Britain’s o’erthrow,
To blast was her intent,
Both King and Parliament,
And Constitution rent,
All at on blow.

But heaven who Britons aid,
When foes our rights invade,
Did frustrate,
With helping hand divine,
Her hellish, vile design,
In a destructive mine,
Providence great!

The church to overthrow,
And Romish errors sow,
James, Britain’s King,
Strove with an ardent zeal,
But in effect did fail,
Which gave him cause to ‘weal
Woe! did him sting.

Rul’d by despotic will,
Patriots no places fill,
In Church nor State;
But injur’d Britons brave,
William’s assistance crave,
Who did our freedom save,
And James defeat.

Britons the chorus join,
Ever may Brunswick’s line,
This empire sway;
May George’s progeny,
Our laws defenders be;
God bless the family;
Huzza! huzza!
