May God Save the Queen

Remembering Great Britain's longest reigning monarch…

Your Majesty, you claimed your crown
the year that I was born.
You grieved your father’s death atop the throne.
And now it is my time to grieve
for one so loved as you.
Your reign has been the longest Britain’s known.

You showed courageous dignity.
You modeled poise and grace.
You lived your faith with reverence, quietly.
Your Highness, when life bent you down
and you were feeling low,
you found the strength to stand tall capably.

Elizabeth, you’ve left your mark
on more than England’s soil.
Your legacy around the globe will shine.
And as the world bids you goodbye
with tributes well-deserved,
we sing “God Save the Queen” one final time.
