The Roundelay.

^»e«c-—

Rule Britannia.

'WTTEN Britain first, at Heaven's command,

Arose from out the azure main,
This was the charter, the charter of the land,

And guardian angels sung the strain;
Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the wares;
Britons never shall be slaves.

The nations not so blest as thee,

Must in their turns to tyrants fall, While thou shall flourish, shall flourish great and free, The dread arid envy of them all. Rule Britannia, &c.

Still more majestic shalt thou rise

More dreadful from each foreign stroke,

As the I o ud blast that—loud blast that tears the sk ies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
Rule Britannia, &c.
