O most feared Belovéd,
how sovereign you are!
Your rule is exalted;
for you we'd go to war,
conquer and pillage. All men
honor you as do we;
they, Protestant and pagan,
swear unto you fealty.
So, grant us, our Daughter,
this one wish: bless us now
with blood, oil and water
on our sworn heads and brow;
for you are England's Queen
and your kingdom's foreseen.
