ENGLAND, MY BELOVED ENGLAND


England, my beloved England
Emerald Isle of heart and joy
Home of scholars and dreamers
Men and women with purpose
Standing fast against oppression.

Children from an empire
That once the sun never set upon
All colours, creeds, religions
Mingling to forge the Nation's heart
England, my beloved England.
