Lyrics: Alexander Pope

In awful pause, while Heaven's revenge is slow,
Jove but prepares to strike a fiercer blow.
That day shall come, that great avenging day,
When Troy's proud glories in the dust shall lay;
When Priam's pow'rs and Priam's self shall fall,
And one prodigious ruin swallow all.
I see the god, already, from the pole
Bare his red arm and bid the thunder roll;
I see th'Eternal all his fury shed,
And shake his aegis on their guilty head.
