Give me the avowed, the erect, the manly foe.
Bold may I meet him, perhaps may turn his blow;
But of all the plagues good Heaven, thy wrath can send,
Save, save, Oh save me from the candid friend.”

But of all plagues, good Heaven, thy wrath can send,
Save, save, oh! save me from the candid friend.”
