Lyrics: "For Edward the 6ths statue at St Thomas's Hospital"

On Edward's brow no laurels cast a shade,
Nor at his feet are war-like spoils display'd;
Yet here, since first his bounty rais'd the pile,
The lame grow active and the languid smile;
See this, ye chiefs, and struck with envy pine;
To kill is brutal, but to save divine.
