England, oh England! dear land of our birth!
Land of the fair and the brave and the free,
England, dear England, the first of the earth!
Some pride is forgiv'n us, singing of thee.
England, England, singing of thee.

Near thee, away from thee, still 'tis the same;
Still we must cherish thee, thrill at thy name,
Joy in thy nobleness, honour thy fame;
E'en should we vaunt thee, are we to blame?

England, oh England, belov'd native land!
Land of the gen'rously helpful and strong,
Sing we thy praises in brotherly band,
Lift we our voices in heartiest song.
Some pride is forgiv'n us, singing of thee.
Lift we our voices, England, singing of thee.
