Now the bitterness of death is past.

-Algernon Sidney, saying farewell to his wife before his execution

Ow, now the Plot is all come out,
 That caus'd our Doubts and Fears,
And all the Tribe that made the Rout,
    Both Commoners and Peers;
The mighty Patrons of the Cause,
    'Gainst Pagan Popery,
Who rais'd a Gibbet for our Foes,
    And hey Boys up go we.
