To the plains, to the woods, To the rocks, to the floods, They fly for succour. Follow, follow, follow ! Hark how the soldiers hollow ! Hey, hey !

Page 196 - Till they grow to mutual fires : Thou, oh gentle queen, that art Curer of each wounded heart : Thou, the fuel and the flame ; Thou, in Heaven, and here the same ; Thou, the wooer, and the woo'd : Thou, the hunger and the food : Thou, the prayer, and the pray'd ; Thou, what is, or shall be said : Thou, still young, and golden tressed, Make me by thy answer blessed !
