The Queen's Diamond Jubilee - June 2012 
A Prayer for the Diamond Jubilee 
 
The following Prayer, written at The Queen's direction by the Chapter of St Paul's Cathedral for Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, will be used in the Jubilee Thanksgiving Service in St Paul's Cathedral on Tuesday 5 June. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have commended it for use throughout the Church of England. Other churches are also welcome to use this prayer. 
 
God of time and eternity, 
whose Son reigns as servant, not master; 
we give you thanks and praise 
that you have blessed this Nation, the Realms and Territories 
with Elizabeth 
our beloved and glorious Queen. 
In this year of Jubilee, 
grant her your gifts of love and joy and peace 
as she continues in faithful obedience to you, her Lord and God 
and in devoted service to her lands and peoples, 
and those of the Commonwealth, 
now and all the days of her life; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

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 give us ever cause, 
To sing with heart and voice, 
God save the Queen.
