Some drink to Friendship, some to Love,-
Through whom the world is fair, perdie!-
But I to one these others prove,
Who leaps ’mid lions for a glove,
Or dies to set another free-
drink to Loyalty.
No dagger his, no cloak and mask,
Free-faced he stands so all
Let Friendship set him any task,
Or Love-reward he does not
The deed is done whateer it be-
here’s to Loyalty.
