And then receive as there ! From fate careering in the skies?, So when these weak, expiring tongues, In vain may Gallia's tyrant boast,

Shall fajut beneath thy praise, She heeds no more his idle threat; Our souls may join th' angelic throngs, And Wellington's victorious host

Aed straips immortal raise ! But mingles joy with her regret.
