(capo 3rd)
C   Am   Dm  G  C     G      C    Am   Dm  C G   C
God save our gracious Queen! Long live our noble Queen!
Dm  C    G   C
God save the Queen!
C        G  C  G C   G     Dm  G  C G
Send her victorious, happy and glorious,
C    G  C G  C   G    C   F  Dm C    G   C
long to__ re-ign over us, Go-d  save the Queen!

C   Am  Dm   G     C  G     C  Am  Dm C       G  C
The choicest gifts in store on her be pleased to pour,
Dm   C   G   C
long may she reign!
C       G C    G   C     G    Dm  G    C  G
May she defend our laws, and ever give us cause,
C  G  C  G  C        G   C      F  Dm C    G   C
to si-ng wi-th heart and voice, Go-d  save the Queen!

C Am   Dm  G   C G     C   Am  Dm  C G C
O Lord our God a-rise, scatter her e-nemies,
Dm  C    G    C
and make them fall.
C         G    C G C     G         Dm    G  C    G
Confound their politics, frustrate their knavish tricks,
C  G C  G  C       G  C    F  Dm C    G  C
on thee ou-r hopes we fix, Go-d  save us all!

Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
God save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
God save the Queen!

Lord grant that Marshall Wade
May by thy mighty aid
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush.
God save the Queen!*

* The last verse, and indeed most verses except the
first, are rarely sung.

French Canadian Version

Since "God Save the Queen" is the royal anthem of Canada,
the first verse has been translated  into French for use
in that country:

Dieu protège la reine
De sa main souveraine!
Vive la reine!
Qu'un règne glorieux,
Long et victorieux
Rende son peuple heureux.
Vive la reine!
