A catch composed upon the occasion of Nelson's victory at the Battle of the Nile, 1798.

This edition comprises a modern realisation, and a statement of the piece in its original specialised format.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

The knell of tyrant laws I hear;
Britannia's flag triumphant rear.
Son of the Nile, thy daring hand
Has crush'd the foe on Egypt's strand.
Now safe from the assaults of war,
Let's drink a health to ev'ry British tar.
