Here’s a Health to King Charles

Written by: Sir Walter Scott | Biography
 | Quotes (35) |
 Bring the bowl which you boast, 
Fill it up to the brim; 
’Tis to him we love most, 
And to all who love him.
Brave gallants, stand up, And avaunt ye, base carles! Were there death in the cup, Here’s a health to King Charles.
Though he wanders through dangers, Unaided, unknown, Dependent on strangers, Estranged from his own; Though ’tis under our breath, Amidst forfeits and perils, Here’s to honor and faith, And a health to King Charles! Let such honors abound As the time can afford, The knee on the ground, And the hand on the sword; But the time shall come round When, ’mid Lords, Dukes, and Earls, The loud trumpet shall sound, Here’s a health to King Charles!
