OH! LET US NE'ER FORGET, MEN.
AIR—"John Anderson my Joe."

Oh! let us ne'er forget, men, the struggles of the past,
Or let disgraceful apathy your energies o'ercast;
Remember him who stood for truth, triumphant and alone—
The hero sent by Providence to guard Britannia's Throne.

Yes; he was sent by Providence to work the will divine,
As Sampson from the womb was sent to smite the Philistine;
As Gideon smote the Midianites, so William's might was shewn,
The hero sent by Providence to guard Britannia's Tyrone.

Yes; he was preordained for this, and thus invincible,
For death and all its thousand shafts around him pointless fell;
He braved thro' sickness, raging seas, and fields with carnage strown—
The hero sent by Providence to guard Britannia's Throne.

And gallantly and piously his mission he achieved,
And all the rights of Protestants he gloriously retrieved;
His task been o'er, his soul took wing, and up to heaven flown,
The hero sent by Providence to guard Britannia's Throne.

Then let us ne'er forget, men, the struggles of the past,
When William and his gallant men struck tyranny aghast;
Are ye their sons?—if so, unite—be William's cause your own,
The hero sent by Providence to guard Britannia's Throne.

The Orange Melodist, Original Orange Songs, With Occasional Verses and an Appendix, Containing Copious Explanatory Notes, Brother William Archer, Oldbrige lodge 597 (Dublin: Brother J. Kirkwood, Printer, 13, Upper Ormond-quay, 1852).
