HYMN ON ST. PATRICK.
Patrick was born at heavenly Tours,
As it is ascertained in stories;
A youth of sixteen years
At the time he was brought under bondage.
Succat his name at the beginning;
Who his father was, be it known
Son of Calphurn, son of Otidé,
Descended from the Deacon Odissé.
He was six years in servitude,
The food of the people he eat not,
They were all by him supported,
Four tribes to whom he was enslaved.
