A New Song to the Great Comfort and Rejoicing of all True English Hearts (1603)

Sweet England rejoice and sing,
Lovingly: lovingly:
God hath sent us now a king,
Praised be him.
Of King Henry’s linage is he
Princely born by degree.
A braver prince cannot be,
Then is noble King James.

Queen Elizabeth she is gone,
Gloriously: Gloriously:
Up to an angel’s throne,
Ever to dwell.
So prudent was her mind,
So careful and so kind:
All her state she hath assigned,
To our noble King James.
