Guy Fawkes Day Psalme
Psalme of thanksgiving for England's most blessed deliverance from the most horrible intended Powder- Treason praised by the Synagogue of Satan, the Romish Babilonians 

psal 123 King David against the Philistines, King James against the Anti-christians

 Now may England
confesse and say truly
It that the Lord
had not our cause maintained
If that the Lord 
had not our right sustaind
When Antichrist 
against us furioiusly
Made his proud bragg
and said we should all die 

Not long agoe
they had devoured us all
And swallowed qauicke
for ought that we could deeme
Such was their rage 
as we might well esteemd
And as the Aouds
with mighty force does fall
So had they then
our lives even brought to thrall 

Our King and Queen 
the Prince and Princely race
Their Counsell gave
and cheefe Nobility
The Learned judges
and tribe of Leni
With all the prudent 
Statesmen of this land
By powder force
had perished out of hand 

The raging streames
of Rome with roaring noise
Had with great woe
ore-whelmd us in the deepe
But blessed Lord
thou didst us safely keepe
From bloudy teeth
and their devouring jaws
Which as a prey
had griped us in their clawes 

But as a bird 
out of the Fowlers grin
Escapes away
right so it fared with us
Broke were their nets
and we have scaped thus
God that made heavn
and earth is our helpe then
His mercy saved us
from these wicked men 

Oh let us therefore
with all thanks and praise
Sing joyfully
to Christ our heavnly King
Whose wisdome high
thsi fact to light did bring
Grant them O Lord
we do the humbly pray
Wee may accord 
to praise thy name alway
