The royal throne of Kings, this sceptred island,
This earth of majesty, this site of Mars,
This fortress, built by Nature for her purpose,
Against infection and the hand of wars:
This demiParadise, this other Eden,
This precious stone set in a silver sea,
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England,
We highly dedicate, O Lord, to Thee.
Grant, Lord, that England and her sister nations,
Together bound by the triumphant sea,
May be renown’d through all recorded ages
For Christian service and true chivalry.
