How well do you *really* know the words to the UK National Anthem, ‘God Save the Queen’? No cheating…

You probably know the words to the chorus, but what about the rest of the anthem?

And no cheating – Her Majesty will know.

Here are the lyrics to the rest of the anthem:

Not in this land alone,

But be God's mercies known,

From shore to shore!

Lord make the nations see,

That men should brothers be,

And form one family,

The wide world ov'er

From every latent foe,

From the assassin's blow,

God save the Queen!

O'er her thine arm extend,

For Britain's sake defend,

Our mother, prince, and friend,

God save the Queen!

Thy choicest gifts in store,

On her be pleased to pour,

Long may she reign!

May she defend our laws,

And ever give us cause,

To sing with heart and voice,

God save the Queen!
