And leave us rulers of your blood

As noble till the latest day!

May children of our children say, "She wrought her people lasting good,

• Her court was pure ; her life serene ;

God gave her peace; her land reposed;

A thousand claims to reverence closed In her as Mother, Wife and Queen ;

*And statesmen at her council met

Who knew the seasons when to tako

Occasion by the hand, and mako The bounds of freedom wider yet

•By shaping some august decree,

Which kept her throne unshaken stilly

Broad-based upon her people's will; And compass'd by the inviolate son!
