Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Albion, thy sea-encircled isle
With plenty shall forever smile.
Kind Nature sheds her genial showers
To raise thy fruits and paint thy flowers,
While all the graces of the spring
Along thy cheerful valleys sing.
What Nature yields, what arts command,
Is found in Britain's happy land.
