This should be the new Brithish national anthem when the Queen leaves.

Author Joel Bader ( ago)
We often sing "O God Beyond All Praising", which is set to this music, at
our church.

Author Gwai Lo ( ago)
My penis stands for this fantastic piece

Author james bolem ( ago)
When the queen passes on, this should be our new national anthem.Perhaps
pride can then be brought back to the UK.

Author Lennon Croucher ( ago)
I can't believe I have to sing this song for a concert at my school, love
it though.

Author Henry Ho ( ago)
How beautiful it is! While in Hong Kong soccer game the Chinese national
anthem was booed and hissed. This can be interpreted as the hatred in
Hongkongers' heart. Both the authors, the music and lyrics, were jailed and
killed by the Communist China. The British is also betraying Hong Kong,
their politicians are bluffing to Hongkongers in order to get benefits from
communist China, what a shameful group.

Author Anon Nymous ( ago)
Englishness is truly a beautiful thing. Be proud of who you are in total,
and not just the English, but all British alike.

Author Michael Lafleur ( ago)
Thank God for the British, thank God for the Commonwealth. May they always
be our guiding light, with such inspirational music, love them.

Luck

I suppose they'll say his last thoughts were of simple things,
Of April back at home, and the late sun on his wings;
Or that he murmured someone else's name
As earth reclaimed him sheathed in flame.
Oh God! Let's have no more of empty words,
Lip service ornamenting death!
The worms don't spare the hero;
Nor can children feed upon resounding praises of his deed.
'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

David McHarrie

Never again.

We should keep God save the queen as our royal anthem but imagine how
beautiful it would be to listen to this more often as our national anthem!

Author Thomas Wilson ( ago)
Incredibly proud to be British

Author TheWriterBuzz7 ( ago)
I am not even British, and this song swells my heart with admiration for my
own country: the United States. This should not only be a patriotic song
for Britain, but for any country that wishes to take pride in themselves.

Beautiful. I wished the U.S. could have some self-dicipline and get it
together and show this kind of devotion.

God save fair England.

Author pompon-delatorre ( ago)
I´m from Spain and I have to say that England is the country I admire the
most. You are able to do something great, that is to sing and feel joinning
under a flag and an anthem, no matter your differences because you feel
together. That´s awesone that in Spain we have to learn about you.....

Author Theresa Bowers ( ago)
This is a great song! For a great country and people. Whenever I get low
about the way my own country is going I think to myself, "Well, there will
always be the British."

Superb, this was The Princess Of Wales's favourite hymn and it's one of
mine too, so sacred !

Author Windypops300 ( ago)
This should be the British national anthem, not God save the queen.

Author PhiloAmericana ( ago)
Beautiful. Full respect to the British people and the British nation.

May God keep your country close to Him always. May we always be allies, and
more importantly, may the British and American people always be tied
together by an affectionate bond.

Author Eric adolphus ( ago)
Respect to this beautiful nation from sweden. I am honestly surprised, that
of all nations, a nation that has so much to be proud off has become a
politically correct multicultural dump today. You british are so much more
than that, your humour, your culture and your beautiful nation are so much
more than what you have become today. Please wake up

So who thinks that this will be replaced by the Mudslime call to prayer by

I love this tune. "Brings tears to my eyes, and I'm not British. But if
you read and listen to the words, the same is true here in the U.S.

Author Arthur Smith (1443 years ago)
Neither Laura Durham nor Joanne Moffatt spoke of plagiarism. The music
world has always pilfered music from one composer or another to set to
lyrics. The lyrics can be inspiring as hell (as in this piece) or deadly
droll.
Joanne and Laura, you really ought to consider "kissing and making up". As
music persons, you ought to realise the freedom of expression available to
all music persons in musical composition.
I agree with Nicholas Pharo, but I would not express myself the way he did.
There is really no need to become so excited over this issue as to express
oneself with cussing or cursing. Really bad show.
I absolutely couldn't agree with David Bell more, and also cwbh10! Also,
Tim Giddings and all the Americans who wrote.
The lyrics are so very respectful of those who have given their all to the
cause of freedom and liberty. We should all stand in awe and humility!
God Save the Queen!

Author David Bell ( ago)
I am An American and I say, God Save the Queen. Where is the loyalty here?
Who do these commenters betroth their lives to, themselves? When people
aren't accustom to any form of Service, they aren't able to behold a
Monarch. It's Jesus Christ they abhor. The Word, the life, the sacrifice of
all they stand for. The Queen is and has been true blue all these years. Is
it to much to ask for a little humility and reverence here? 
I think this forum is a lot about being controversial for the sake of
controversy.

It does no harm to remember those who paid the price for liberty,
particularly those who held Hitler at bay after the fall of the rest of the
Europe, thereby gaining time for the resources to be gathered which ensured
his defeat.

Author Michael Constantine ( ago)
An inspiring piece of Gustav holsts music, retooled from its ingenuitive
praise of natural awe and beauty devolved back into an anthem for
nationalism and the god that justifies it, how... How... Sigh...

Author Alan West ( ago)
One of the few songs that makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck
each time I hear it. I don't really think about national identity or what
that means most of the time, but whenever I hear this it makes me emotional
about being British. 

Author stealth1692 ( ago)
why is the second verse always missed out?

Author NoName ( ago)
Beautiful. From an American. 

Author A. D. Godbee ( ago)
Jan 3: I Vow to Thee My Country stirs the American quite like our National
Anthem and probably since my family on me father's side the projeniter came
from England and was on the ship that sank?? off Bermuda and was
Shakespers's inspiration for The Tempest; so there are sme emotional ties.
Happy New Year 2015!!!

It's sad how the regents seem confused when this song comes up, yet
servicemen sing it all out.

without fail the most faithful soldiers have the smallest dicks. it's all
they have to live for. it's pathetic. soldiers should be murdered. yay!

Author Paul Frenchie ( ago)
I am horrified by this remark. I prefer not to think of old wars between
europeans, but i remember well of friends of mine, who died, days ago
somewhere in Africa, just to prevent you from being slaughtered in your own
Streets.

Author Greg D. ( ago)
As an American who has journeyed to your country on several occasions, I
find myself greatly moved by this majestic hymn. It speaks directly to the
character of your great nation and gives me pride that our two nations
share a special friendship. May that always be. God bless!

At 0:50 that man is a UN/EU prospective employee. He does not care for
Britain. He will do anything that benefits his career! He is a traitor! He
will do nothing for Britain! They are all disgusting. They won't help our
wonderful country. Please check it out. We are getting sold out.

Author James Johnson ( ago)
Pretty stupid the second verse is taken out, after all its a hymn about the
sacrifice and courage of the soldiers in the trenches during the first
world war.

Author Nathan Shardelow ( ago)
All these comments saying this should be the National Anthem and there
should be no Queen. Well guess what? Im a Boer and im a firm supporter of
her Majesty and the UK. 

Author Peter Yeates ( ago)
I love Ireland, my hero is Michael Collins. my name is Yeates, we have so
much to celebrate together, hating is such bad business, thank God for the
Irish that sustained and still sustain the British dream of truth
reconciliation and purpose, we did that, thats what we are like, the
geographical description of Britain is the British Isles,that includes
Ireland. Our future is together, celebrating the past, the great British
Empire, which since it's decision to let all it's lands determined their
future, look what happens. Just one example the beautiful country of
Rhodesia where one went to see the ruins of Zimbabwe, and now no one
travels to view the ruins of Rhodesia, the bread basket of Africa, which
has turned into the Belsen of Mugabe.
Nevertheless we did what they wanted return their so called "freedom" from
the "Colonial Rule"
Let the hate go ! I like your marvellous pictures of your trains...come to
Bitton Nr Bristol wonderful resurrected local Railway you would love it..

Long live multicultural Britain. A large chunk of the work force would be
gone without immigrants. Look at all the foreign flags in that audience.
Long live the Commonwealth.

This is great as the Russian/Soviet One... 'God Save the Queen' must be a
royal anthem, and this one must be the national anthem of UK...

WILL GOOGLE NOT PUT ADVERTS ON THIS PLEASE !!! Do not sell things on sites
like this. very homer simpson.

Author Pirabee ( ago)
I sorely wish my nation could evoke half as much passion from its people.
Sadly, it cannot because our leaders are there for themselves and the
modicum of liberties they allow is to deceive great democratic states like
the UK that it may treat us as equals, which we really aren't.

This is my favourite hymn of all, followed closely by Jerusalem.

Author damionjm2010 ( ago)
Her Majesty has truly dedicated her life to the service of her people for
that i always feel a sense of pride singing the Anthem. 

Author Noah Angott ( ago)
The backstory on this is pretty hilarious. When Holst was asked to put the
words of this poem to song, he was so overworked and tired, he was pretty
happy to find he could just stick em on top of the chorale from Jupiter and
call it a day.

I honestly think this is... kind of distasteful. Holst was cool with all of
it, but a lot of people disagree with turning a piece inspired by the
heavens into a thing of earthly politics and nationalism.
