RULE BRITANNIA


When Britain first at Heav’n’s command Arose from out the azure main; (bis) This was the charter, the charter of the land, And guardian angels sang this strain;

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
The nations not so blest as thee,
Shall in their turns to tyrants fall;
While thou shalt flourish great and free,
The dread and envy of them all.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
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! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
Thee haughty tyrants ne’er shall tame,
All their attempts to bend thee down
Will but arouse thy generous flame;
But work their woe, and thy renown.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine;
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles thine.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.
The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coast repair;
Blest Isle! With matchless beauty crowned,
And manly hearts to guide the fair.
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves:
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves

    I am still reeling from excitement and pure joy! Last night was a nailbiter, but, all praise and glory to our Lord, the people of Britain have spoke! They want FREEDOM and their NATIONALITY back!!! AMEN!!! I’m not saying it will be easy, but LIBERTY is worth it! Western Nations do NOT want the unholy alliance of globalism / new world order / one world government!! And of course, everything flows from them to us… fashion, music, politics, views, etc… they stood for INDEPENDENCE today and America will too in Nov! May God bless all nations who strive to be free!

    Britain out of the EU and the EU out of Britain!
    USA! USA! USA! !!!TRUMP!!! USA! USA! USA!
    America out of the UN and the UN out of America!

    Hello Wil; this is the complete Star-Spangled Banner.

    America should take note of the last verse… We need to break the chains too.

    All four verses, as they were written 200 years ago by Key:

    O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
    What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
    Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
    O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
    And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
    Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
    O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
    Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
    What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
    As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
    Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
    In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
    ’Tis the star-spangled banner—O long may it wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
    That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
    A home and a Country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
    Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
    Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
    Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    I Think the word is Sovereignty! As a Country… but also as individual men and women alike sovereign in their life and not having a : “they told me so”.
    Sure it mean to take some responsibilities that were so easy once again it is not me it is them ! Sovereignty it is like leaving childhood and taking step as adult..

    Thanks Partner, very interesting and great video
