I'm a fan of our national anthem.

Some want to petition for an English anthem. Personally I am happy with God Save the Queen.

My reasons are two-fold. First I believe in praying for the powers that be and this lady has done an excellent job overall. Secondly, I love the verse no-one ever sings.

Lord grant that Marshall Wade
May by Thy mighty aid
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush
Rebellious Scots to crush
God save the King.
National Anthem, circa 1745, the verse everyone omits
