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 us all

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

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

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

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

    The queen in england is not just a magnificent lady, but she stands for all that is brave, true, and outstanding in england. The best part of the song is that the british seek god's guidance for her, not just the lady, but the country. What a heartwarming anthem for the country from which the usa was birthed.

    We were doing a civics project, singing along to you are my sunshine, when this website told us to comment on what the song means to us! However while we were writing the comment, the song god save the queen entered our intelligent minds! This really shows how just a simple thought can cause someone to write a whole paragraph. And this is what this song means to us. The queen is very inspriring. I am totally not against the constitutional monarchy because its part of our native countries history. Now then, i shall ask a rheotorical question... Do you love and respect the queen? We sure do.
