Land of Hope and Glory|
Artist: Pomp and Circumstance from Edward Elgar's "Coronation Ode", 1902, A.C. Benson 1862-1925, Pitch: Es Back to: Lyrics Index
Dear Land of Hope, thy hope is crowned.
Land of Hope and Glory,Thy fame is ancient as the days,
As Ocean large and wide:
A pride that dares, and heeds not praise,
A stern and silent pride:
Not that false joy that dreams content
With what our sires have won;
The blood a hero sire hath spent
Still nerves a hero son.
