Not looking good for James II

An Ode to the King of his Return from New-market
(for Charles II after the collapse of the Rye House plot)
Set by Mr. Baptist, Master of the Queen's Musick, London
Printed for R. Bentley, in Russel-Street in Covent-Garden, with the Authors Consent 1684

"England's Hope and Rome's Despair
Earth's delight, and Heaven's care!
...
"O Live for ever!
Happy keep us still, and free,
We no successor wish to see."
