rfT"i OD save great George our King,
**3* Long live our noble King,

God save the King 1
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,

God save the King!

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter his enemies,

And make them fall.
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks 1
On him our hearts we fix,

O save us all!

Thy choicest gifts in store
On him be pleas'd to pour;

Long may he reign!
May he defend our laws,
And ever give us cause,
To sing with heart and voice,

God save the King!

O grant him long to see
Friendship and unity

Always increase:
May he his sceptre sway,
All loyal _souls obey,
Join heart and voice, huzza!

God save the King!"

"* From ev'rv latent f«e,
"From the assassin's blow,
"God save the King!

"O'er him thine arm extend,
"For Britain's sake defend
"Our Father, Prince, and Friend,
"God save the King!'

WHEN Britain first at HeavVs command,
Arose from out the azure main,
Arose, &c.
This was the charter, the charter of the land,
And guardian Angels sung this strain:
Kule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves?
For Briton's never will be slaves.

The nations, not so blest as thee, -
Must, in their turns, to tyrants fall,
Must, in, &c.

Whilst thou shalt flourish, shalt flourish great and
free,
The dread and envy of them all.

* The above additional stanza, (written originally in America,) was sung with reiterated applause at J)rury-lane Theatre, on Thursday evening, May 15, 3 800, after the attempt was made on the life of His Still more majestic shalt thou rise,

[graphic]

More dreadful from each foreign stroke,
More dreadful, &c.

As the loud h! ist that tears the skies,
fcerves biit to root thy native oak.

Thee haughty tyrant? ne'er shall tame;

All their attempts to bend thee down,

All their, &c.
Will but arouse, arouse thy gen'rous flainej -

And work their woe, and thy renown.

To thee belongs the rural reign;

Thv cities shall with commerce shine;

Thy cities, &c.
Al l thine shall be, shall be the subject main,

And ev'ry shore it circles thine.

The muses still with freedom found,

Shall to thy happy coast repair;

Shall to, ike. Jjjless'd isle! with beauties, with matchless beauties crown'd,

And manly hearts to guard the fair!
