'We'll avenge his death,' the seamen cry,
'We'll fight, we'll conquer, or we'll die,
And will their force deride:
Our little ones shall lisp his name,
And to acquire a Nelson's fame,

'Is victory our own?'
'We've conquer'd,' cried the valiant crew,
He smiling bade them all adieu,
And died without a groan.

And others that had struck:

Inploring blessings on our isle,
Bade Collingwood adieu:
