Cry God! For Harry, England and St George!

(Image courtesy of Beardedgit)

Hold fast to England

For if England dies

A precious jewel is lost forever

This cannot be

A land ruled by others

Small minded men of power

Who tell us we cannot be

Remove our rights of old

Hold their nation first

And Europe second in their hearts

They seek to break us

Set us against each other

Yet we will not go quietly into the night

For English we are

And England will be

Freedom our right

Not to be taken

Never given up

We shall be free

A future bright

The traitors cast down

England restored

Hold fast to English dreams

And remember our nation fair

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

Hi BG, I'm afraid I fell peril to the curse of using Google images and didn't check the provenance. You're quite correct in that credit should go where credit is due and thank you for being so gracious about it.

Thank you for the add

I too use google images QM, although I give credit when I can. Anyway the CCL only seems to apply to England and Wales.

A rather apt St George's Day post QM. I like it.

Thanks for sorting it. Keep up the good work, I'm off to do that link now.

@subrosa: I hadn't realised that the CCL was the "England and Wales only" version, so thanks for letting me know. FWIW I've just updated it.
