National Anthem

Started by: GOLDEN BEAR (4153) 

Just watching rugby union on tv and something that is close to my heart and that is the National Anthem's ,I listened to the Canadian anthem and really liked it ,the song was again about the actual country ,also i do like the Australian and the New Zealand anthem's they are also songs about the country which all these three used to be God save the Queen , but have gone away from that , Personally i am really in favour of changing our National Anthem and would like someone to write a fresh one , one that praise's the country we live ,not with respect the one we have which ask's god to save a particular person .. Has anyone on here got any views on a change of our ANTHEM .....GB

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 our enemies,
And make them fall!
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
God save us all!

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 o’er.

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!

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

I think it's a great Anthem.

Rumour has it that there was an extra verse

Lord, grant that Marshal Wade,
May by thy mighty aid
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
and like a torrent rush
Rebellious Scots to crush!
God save the King!
