3. 

Still more majestic shalt thou rise, ■ 

More dreadful from each foreign stroke ; 

As the loud blast, that tears the skies, 
Serves but to root thy native oak. 
Rule Britannia! &c. 



Thee, haughty tyrants ne'er shall tame ; 

All their attempts to bend thee down, 
"Will but arouse thy gen'rous flame, 

To work their woe, and thy renown. 
Rule Britannia ! &c. 



To thee belongs the rural reign, 

Thy cities shall with commerce shine; 

All thine, shall be the subject main, 
And ev'ry shore it circles, thine. 
Rule Britannia ! &c. 

6. 

The muses, still with freedom found, 
Shall to thy happy coast repair ; 

Blest Isle ! with matchless beauty crown'd, 
And manly hearts to guard the fair. 
Rule Britannia ! &c.
