God Save The Queen Lyrics

Lyrics, Author Unknown 
Plainsong Melody by John Bull (1619) 
Popularized (1745)

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!

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 the Queen!

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!
