For all the wonder of thy regal day
Golden content, and Freedom that can dare
To covet not, nor shun a grander sway
And knowledge soaring to a loftier air
We bend to Thee that thou hast been
Of sea and land illustrious Queen.

But rather for the mind that can rejoice
With all our joy, and strive as we have striven
Ripe human counsel, and the nearer voice
Of comfort to the lowly mourner given
We cling to this that thou hast been
In heart and home our Mother Queen.
