God Save The Queen

When you play the clip above, you'll hear Land of Hope and Glory first and then the anthem God Save The Queen. Only verse one and three (below) are sung, but the second verse seems pretty apropos given our experience with the EU.

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.

The Queen has "reached the zenith in age of any British monarch since King Edward the Confessor".
