Sung by Mrs. Knight, to Her Majesty on Her Birth-day.
THis happy day two Lights are seen,
A Glorious Saint, a Matchless Queen;
Page 239 Both nam'd alike, both Crown'd appear,
The Saint above, th'Infanta here:
May all those years which Catherine
The Martyr did for Heav'n resign,
Be added to the Line
Of Your blest Life amongst us here.
For all the pains that She did feel,
And all the Torments of Her Wheel:
May You as many Pleasures share;
May Heaven it self content
With Catherine the Saint.
Without appearing old,
An hundred times may You,
With Eyes as bright as now
This welcome Day behold.
