God save our gracious King,

Send him victorious,

God save the King.

AMERICA

My Country, ‘tis of thee,
Sweet Land of Liberty,
Of Thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims pride,
From every mountain side
Let Freedom ring.

ENGLAND AND AMERICA

Two Empires, by the sea,
Two peoples, great and free
One anthem raise.
One race of ancient fame,
One tongue, one faith, we claim,
One God, whose glorious name,
We love and praise.
