Hymn, line 118 (1730)

Forever, Fortune, wilt thou proveAn unrelenting foe to love,And, when we meet a mutual heart,Come in between and bid us part?

To Fortune

When Britain first, at Heaven's command,Arose from out the azure main,This was the charter of the land,And guardian angels sung this strain:'Rule, Britannia, Britannia rule the waves;Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.'

Alfred, Act II, sc. v (1740)

A bard here dwelt, more fat than bard beseems,Who, void of envy, guile, and lust of gain,On virtue still, and nature's pleasing themes,Poured forth his unpremeditated strain.

The Castle of Indolence, canto I, st. 6 (1748)

See, Winter comes to rule the varied year,Sullen and sad.

Ships dim-discovered dropping from the clouds.
