Know this, my brethren, Heaven is clear

And all the clouds are gone--

The Proper Sort shall flourish now,

Good times are coming on"--

The evil that was threatened late

To all of our degree

Hath passed in discord and debate,

And,Hey then up go we!

A common people strove in vain

To shame us unto toil,

But they are spent and we remain,

And we shall share the spoil

According to our several needs

As Beauty shall decree,

As Age ordains or Birth concedes,

And, Hey then up go we!

And they that with accursed zeal

Our Service would amend,

Shall own the odds and come to heel

Ere worse befall their end:

For though no naked word be wrote

Yet plainly shall they see

What pinneth Orders on their coat,

And, Hey then up go we!

Our doorways that, in time of fear,

We opened overwide

Shall softly close from year to year

Till all be purified;

For though no fluttering fan be heard.

Nor chaff be seen to flee--

The Lord shall winnow the Lord's Preferred--

And, Hey then up go we!

Our altars which the heathen brake

Shall rankly smoke anew,

And anise, mint and cummin take

Their dread and sovereign due,

Whereby the buttons of our trade

Shall soon restored be

With curious work in gilt and braid,

And, Hey then up go we!

Then come, my brethren, and prepare

The candlesticks and bells,

The scarlet, brass, and badger's hair

Wherein our Honour dwells,

And straitly fenceand strictly keep

The Ark's integrity

Till Armageddon break our sleep . . .

And, Hey then go we!
