Mr. URBAN, B--n,
The subjoined Verses were intended as an Anthem
for Divine Service on the last Fast-day in the two parish-churches in
which I officiate; but recollecting, after I had written them, their introduction
there would be an infringement on the authority of the Ordinary,
they were not used. If thought fit to be preserved in the Gentleman's
Magazine, you loyalty or your kindness will induce you to print then.
"God save great George," &c.
Holy Lord God arise,
O our Defence and Shield,
Thou, whose Almighty Hand
We bend beneath thy rod;
