An Ode To The Queen

All hail to the Empress of India, Great Britain's Queen!
Long may she live in health, happy and serene;

To sleep, and rising up, by the Eternal God;
Happy may her visions be in sleep ...
And happy her thoughts in the day time;
Let all loyal subjects drink to her health
In a flowing bumper of Rhenish Wine.
