I didn't learn it at school but i know all the words and have sung them at many events, most people don't know how many verses there are and why we are not allowed to sing one of them.

This is most of the full anthem, at the moment we are not allowed to sing a verse about "Those rebellious Scots". These days I would put it back in, we could sing it while we hang them.

God save our gracious Queen,
Live long our noble Queen,
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen.
2.
Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour,
Long may she reign;
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the Queen!
3.
God bless our native land,
May heaven's protective hand
Still guard our shore;
May peace her power extend,
Foe be transformed to friend,
And Britain's power depend
On war no more.
4.
May just and righteous laws
Uphold the public cause,
And bless our isle.
Home of the brave and free,
Fair land and liberty,
We pray that still on thee
Kind heaven may smile.
5.
And not this land alone-
But be thy mercies known
From shore to shore.
Lord, make the nations see
That men should brothers be,
And from one family
The wide world o'er.

I am most certainly a Royalist and I agree Jerusalem is a favourite. There is a lot of talk about an anthem for England at the moment there isn't an official one. God save the Queen is the British National Anthem. I Do Not consider myself British I am English and nowt else.

It's suprising how many different races call themselves british.
