           Rose of Albion.

       Evans, printer, Long-lane, London.

BLOW softly, ye breezes, and waft over
the billows
The bark which contains our lov'd Caroline
Ye Angels of Peace! O watch over her
And ever befriend her when danger is near.

Be hush'd ev'ry rumour which malice in-
Her fair spotless fame will triumphantly
The fair Rose of Albion, Us sweets yet un-
Still blooms in our much-loved Queen

Long time each true Briton her absence did
How gladly he welcom'd her to this lov'd
When Caroline did to Old England return,
With Britons to dwell, and to leave them
no more !

           God save the Queen.

       Evans, printer, Long-lane, London.

GOD save Queen Caroline,
Long live Queen Caroline,
God save the Queen ;
Let her in triumph rise
Over her enemies,
Pure from their calumnies,
God save the Queen.

O Lord our God, arise,
Preserve our liberties,
Protect the Queen ;
Inspire each Briton brave ,
Boldly his Queen to save,
Nor, like a grov'lling slave,
Desert his Queen.

Charlotte ! whose mem'ry dear
Britons will long revere,
On us look down ;
Descend, O spirit blest,
Sooth thy torn mother's breast,
Traduc'd, by foes opprest,
Our injur'd Queen.

Britons ! with loud acclaim,
Shout the beloved name,
Queen Caroline;
Aid her with heart and hand,
That she may firm withs and
Corruption's servile band;
God save the Queen.
