While the battle rages loud and long, And the stormy winds do blow.

Oh, how hard it is to find The one just suited to our mind!
Source: Battle of the Baltic
Britannia needs no bulwarks, No towers along the steep; Her march is o'er the mountain waves, Her home is on the deep.
Ye are brothers! ye are men! And we conquer but to save.
The meteor flag of England Shall yet terrific burn, Till danger's troubled night depart, And the star of peace return.
The combat deepens. On, ye brave, Who rush to glory or the grave! Wave, Munich! all thy banners wave, And charge with all thy chivalry!
