POETICAL WORKS

OF THE REVEREND

DR. ED. YOUNG.

IN FOUR VOLUMES.

WITH THE LIFE OF THE AUTHOR.

When flatter'd crimes of a licentious age
Reproach our silence, and demand our rage;
When purchas'd follies, from each distant land,
Like arts, improve in Lritain's skilful hand;
When the Law shews her teeth, but dares not bite,
And South-sea treasures are not brought to light;
When Churchmen Scripture for the Classicks quiry
Polite apostates from God's grace to wit;
When men grow great from their revenue speni,
And fly from bailiffs into parliament;
When dying sinners, to blot out their score,
Bequeath the Church the leavings of a whore;
To chafe our spleen, when themes like these increase,
Shall paneygrick reign, and censure cease?
Shall authors siricon such illustricas d'ays,
And satirize with nothing---but their praise?
