Pub. 1804. First performed at public concerts in London, with Mrs Billington singing the national anthem; also in the repertoire of the Bath York House Catch Club.

Webbe also embedded the national anthem in another glee of similar date, "My pocket's low and taxes high".
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

May our heroes, far and near,
Dreadful to our foes appear;
May the British flag unfurl'd
Bid defiance to the world.
May our arms our foes destroy
And restore us peace and joy.

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,
And restore us peace and joy.
