On ye union

On ye Union.

Oh happy Engl[an]d in thy choice of Mate!
Blest both in Soul, in Body & Estate:
Endow'd w[i]th Schism, & Poverty, & Itch;
to make Thee Clean, & Orthodox, & Rich.

The Great Q[ueen] Anne ye Gordian Knot has ty'd
W[hi]ch neither Art, nor Iron can divide.
France, Rome, High-Church, & all you Sons of Brimstone,
This Knot has brought yo[u]r Noses to ye Grindstone.
