Rule, Britannia! - lyrics

When Britain first, at Heaven's command,
Arose from out the azure main,
Arose, arose, arose from out the azure main;
This was the charter,
The charter of the land,
And guardian angels sung this strain:
"Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!"
The nations not so blest as Thee,
Must in their turn to tyrants fall,
Must in their turn to tyrants fall;
While Thou shalt flourish,
Shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!
Still more majestic shalt Thou rise,
More dreadful from each foreign stroke,
More dreadful from each foreign stroke;
As the loud blast,
loud blast that tears the skies,
Serves but to root thy native oak.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves!
