English text

Virgins; Priests; Levites

Around let acclamations ring:
Hail, royal youth, hail royal youth,
Long live the king!

Joad

Reviving Judah shall no more
Detested images adore;
We’ll purge with a reforming hand
Idolatry from out the land.
May God, from whom all mercies spring,
Bless the true church, and save the king!

Virgins; Priests; Levites

Bless the true church, and save the king!
