2    Long live our noble king,
3    God save the king.
4Send him victorious,
5Happy and glorious,
6Long to reign over us,
7    God save the king.
😯 Lord our God arise,
9Scatter his enemies,
10    And make them fall:
11Confound their politics,
12Frustrate their knavish tricks,
13On him our hopes we fix,
14    God save us all.
15Thy choicest gifts in store,
16On him be pleas’d to pour,
17    Long may he reign.
18May he defend our laws,
19And ever give us cause,
20To sing with heart and voice
21    God save the king.
23May by thy mighty aid
24    Victory bring.
25May he sedition hush,
26And like a torrent rush,
28    God save the king.
