60 years. God Save the Queen.

God of time and eternity, whose Son reigns as servant, not master;
we give you thanks and praise that you have blessed this Nation, the Realms and Territories with ELIZABETH, our beloved and glorious Queen.
In this year of Jubilee, grant her your gifts of love and joy and peace as she continues in faithful obedience to you, her Lord and God and in devoted service to her lands and peoples, and those of the Commonwealth,
now and all the days of her life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

There is much to sing in thankfulness for. We have a monarch who loves the Lord Jesus Christ and that is no small thing.

The official song, put together by Gary Barlow, is magnificent. He’s gone all around the Commonwealth sampling voices and instruments (even Prince Harry on tambourine!)

Sing:

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
