God save the Queen!

Today we celebrate the 57th Anniversary of the Accession of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. She became Queen before I was conceived in my mother's womb. They are both remarkable women!



God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us;
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!

A day of mixed emotions for Her Majesty, I imagine, as she remembers her late father.

I only moved here 3 months ago! I think we are very blessed with Queen Elizabeth II.
