God Save the Queen

 

God save our gracious Queen
Long live our noble Queen
God save the Queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Queen

O Lord our God arise
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall
Confound their politics
Frustrate their knavish tricks
On Thee our hopes we fix
God save us all

Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour
Long may she reign
May she defend our laws
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen

Not in this land alone
But be God’s mercies known
From shore to shore
Lord make the nations see
That men should brothers be
And form one family
The wide world over

From every latent foe
From the assassins blow
God save the Queen
O’er her thine arm extend
For Britain’s sake defend
Our mother, prince, and friend
God save the Queen

Lord grant that Marshal Wade
May by thy mighty aid
Victory bring
May he sedition hush
And like a torrent rush
Rebellious Scots to crush
God save the King

Motherland

 

Oh Montserrat, proud Motherland
Your children raise your standard high.
In toil and tears to serve you well,
The emerald jewel from God’s hand.

Chorus:
Oh Montserrat, by nature blest
To you your children sing
Come well or woe, come friend or foe
To you your people cling.

Rise up and make our country great
With art and skill and sacrifice
With masque and jump we celebrate,
Triumphant masters of our faith

Chorus

We sing our land in harmony
May God be heard eternal God°
And make Montserrat a house of hope,
A haven in the Carib Sea.

Chorus

No pestilence shall mar your shore
No fount of sadness overwhelm
A people striving under God
Their spirits free forevermore

Chorus

No pestilence pollutes her shore
No fount of sadness overwhelm
A people striving under God
Their spirits free forever more.

Chorus
