If now he burns with noble flame
If now he burns with noble flame,
When grown, what will he do?
From Pole to pole he’ll stretch his fame
And all the world subdue.
Then Thames shall be Queen
Of Tyber and Seine,
Of Nilus, of Indus, and Ganges:
And, without foreign aid,
Our fleets be obey’d
Wherever the wide ocean ranges.
