St George's Day

(Mike Sparks)

Raise your voices sing I say
God bless England on St. George's Day
Raise your voices sing I say
God bless England on St George's Day

Through wars and conflicts down the years
We've stood our ground through fire and tears
Finest when the clouds turn grey
God bless England on St George's Day

Though haven for the world's oppressed
Poor and needy, east and west
English values still hold sway
Let's praise England on St George's Day

Though lesser peoples far and near
At our patriotism sneer
Let them all like donkey's bray
Whilst we praise England on St George's Day

So from rocky coast to fen and mere
To forest deep and mountain sheer
O'er moors and hills we'll make our way
To sing of England on St George's Day
