    To match his learning and his wit;
    'Twas Presbyterian true blue;

    Of errant saints, whom all men grant
    To be the true Church Militant;
    Such as do build their faith upon
    The holy text of pike and gun;
    Decide all controversies by
    Infallible artillery;
    And prove their doctrine orthodox,
    By Apostolic blows and knocks.

And after hearing what our Church can say,
If still our reason runs another way,

Than by disputes the public peace disturb;
For points obscure are of small use to learn,
But common quiet is mankind's concern.

How the bold teacher's doctrine, sanctified
By truth, shall spread throughout the world dispersed.
