TO MISS BRAND.

1 MARY! our Prayer being still the same,
2 A little Litany I frame.
3 The Wish, that dwells within each breast,
4 So early form'd, so oft express'd,
5 Is, by the Muse's favouring care,
6 At length reduc'd to Form of Prayer.
7 Sisters, who're Friends, like you and me,
8 Perhaps will join our Litany;
9 Whilst those, whose hearts know no such love,
10 Will from our Mode, Dissenters prove.
