O God, whose mercy is our state,
Whose realms are children in Thy hand,
Who willed that, in the years of Fate,
Thy servant George should rule this land,

We thank Thee, that the years of strife
Have changed to peace, and for this thing
That Thou hast given him length of life
Under Thy hand to be our King.

O God, vouchsafe him many years
With all the world as England's friend
And England bright among her peers
With wisdom that can never end.
