Lyrics: Book of Common Prayer 1662

O Lord, grant the Queen a long life, that her years may endure throughout all generations. She shall dwell before God for ever. O prepare thy loving mercy and faithfulness that they may preserve her. As for her enemies, clothe them with shame, but upon herself, let her crown flourish. Hallelujah.
