Comments about Arthur Christopher Benson
Land Of Hope And Glory
Land of hope and glory, Mother of the free,
How may we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Truth and Right and Freedom, each a holy gem,
Stars of solemn brightness, weave thy diadem.
Tho' thy way be darkened, still in splendour drest,
As the star that trembles o'er the liquid West.
Throned amid the billows, throned inviolate,
Though hast reigned victorious, thou has smiled at fate.
Land of hope and glory, Fortress of the free,
How may we extol thee, praise thee, honour thee?
Hark, a mighty nation maketh glad reply;
