Fames pillar here, at last, we set,
Out-during Marble, Brasse, or Jet,
Charm'd and enchanted so,
As to withstand the blow
Of overthrow:
Nor shall the seas,
Or OUTRAGES
Of storms orebear
What we up-rear,
Tho Kingdomsfal,
This pillar never shall
Decline or waste at all;
But stand for ever by his owne
Firme and well fixt foundation.
