Cooke set a portion of Waller's ode in praise of Charles II and his navy as a compliment to that of George III a century later.

Lyrics: Edmund Waller

Where e'er thy navy spreads its canvas wings,
Homage to thee, and peace to all, she brings:
The French and Spaniard, when thy flags appear,
Forget their hatred, and consent to fear.
So Jove from Ida did both hosts survey,
And when he pleased to thunder, part the fray.
