God Save The King lyrics – words for new England national anthem at World Cup
God Save the King
God save our gracious King!
Long live our noble King!
God save the King!
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the King!
Thy choicest gifts in store
On him be pleased to pour,
Long may he reign.
May he defend our laws
And ever give us cause,
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the King

At the start of the 19th century, God Save The King, a patriotic song that was first played in public in London in 1745, became regarded as the national anthem.
Prince Charles Edward Stuart, the “Young Pretender” to the British throne, defeated King George II’s army at Prestonpans, close to Edinburgh, in September 1745.
After hearing about Prestonpans in London, the bandmaster at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, planned a performance of “God Save The King” to follow a play.
Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, and Luke
The practise quickly spread to other theatres once it became an enormous success, and the tradition of welcoming monarchs with the song as they enter a public entertainment venue was formed.
Since the lyrics are a matter of tradition and more verses have been added over time, there is no official version of the national anthem.
The lyrics are the same as those chanted in 1745, with “Queen” substituted in place of “King” when appropriate, however just the first stanza is typically sung at official events.
The tune has been utilised in the works of almost 140 composers, including Beethoven, Haydn, and Brahms.
