God Save The King

 Next Poem          

GOD save our gracious King,
Long live our noble King,
God save the King! Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us;
God save the King!

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter his enemies,
And make them fall; Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On thee our hopes we fix:
God save us all!

Thy choicest gifts in store
On him be pleased to pour;
Long may he reign; May he defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with hearts and voice,
"God save the King!"

From ev'ry latent foe,
From the assassin's blow,
God save the King! O'er him thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our father, prince and friend,
God save the King!
