I. God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen !
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us ;
God save the Queen !

II. O Lord, our God, arise,
Scatter her enemies,
And make them fall !
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
God save us all !

III. Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour ;
Long may she reign ;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice :
God save the Queen !

IV. Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore !
Lord, make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

V. From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen !
O'er her Thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince and friend,
God save the Queen !

VI. Lord, grant that Marshall Wade
May, by Thy mighty aid,
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush.
God save the Queen !
