The Doom of Anarchy
Oh, God! In thy long look adown the years,
Did’st Thou see but this way to save our land,
In time to come, from Anarchy’s red hand?
This way that floods a nation’s heart with tears?
Would not some lesser stroke stir us to quell
The lurking monster e’er it grew too late?
If naught but this could seal Unreason’s fate,
E’en in our grief we cry “Thou hast done well!”
