When shalt thou see thy wholesome days again,

By his own interdiction stands accursed
And does blaspheme his breed?

For what is he they follow? Truly, gentlemen,
A bloody tyrant and a homicide;
One raised in blood and one in blood established;

Of England's chair, where he is falsely set;
One that hath ever been God's enemy.
