A Looking=glass for all true Protestants: / Or, A True Declaration of these Troublesome Times. / The Papists they have acted such a Plot, / That in England it will never be forgot; / But God Defend our Protestant Nation still, / And bless our Gracious King, if it be thy Will: / And guide our Parliament in a right way, / That our Enemies of us do never make a pray: / And make our Kingdom, void and free from strife, / And every Man and Woman, serve God and mend their Life.
