In a band of workingmen.

That's a pow'r, that's a pow'r
That must rule in every land —

„Every star, and every pow'r,
Look down on this important hour“

— Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719
Context: Every star, and every pow'r, Look down on this important hour: Lend your protection and defence Every guard of innocence! Help me my Henry to assuage, To gain his love or bear his rage. Mysterious love, uncertain treasure, Hast thou more of pain or pleasure! Chill'd with tears, Kill'd with fears, Endless torments dwell about thee: Yet who would live, and live without thee! Queen Elinor in Rosamond (c. 1707), Act III, sc. ii.
