On His Majesty's  BIRTH-DAY. WHEN Papal Povj'r and Arbitrary Snvay Their Iron Seep'res held o'er half" the World; This happy Me, with Manly Reafon bleft, Difdain'd the Yoke, and fpurn'd the fervile Chain. Boldly her Sons flood forth, in Truth's. Defence; Holding the'Ballance, with an equal Hand. 'Till Rimers infidious Arts wrefted again the Scale ; And pour'd in Tinfil Drofs, for Solid Ore.
