We fought, the Spaniard', when the Dons Aspired to rule the main; Their ships we sunk, while others slunk, All battered, bach to Spain. Yet we and they are friends to-day, And ne'er shall strive again. Refrain: The fierce wrath of England in love melts away; The foes whom she conquers are friends of hers for aye!

We fought, the French, when far and wide Their conquering eagles flew; Eclipsed their star at Trafalgar And glorious Waterloo. Now hand in hand with them we stand. As brothers sworn and true. Refrain : O England! brave England! Her wrath may not stay; The foes whom she conquers are friends of hers for aye!

We fought the Russians, fought the Dutch, Chastised the haughty Danes: No cruel deed, no grasping greed That strenuous record siains. Now scars are healed and friendships scaled. No thought of hate remains. Refrain : For England, brave England, loves Peace and Freedom’s sway; The foes whom she conquers arc friends of hers for aye! To-day we face another foe, Who seeks to rule the waves : The German horde with fire and sword Has filled a million graves. May Triumph's dower be wiih the Power That, when it conquer?, save -1 Refrain : O England! brave England! (tod help ihec in the fray, So that these cruel foemen be friends of thine for avc!

Oh, grant us, mighty Prince of Prace. No trace, of wrath remain; No sullen hate for Belgium’s fate, No cloud o’er fair Lo’raine. Sweep from the path the Son of Wraiti, Nor let him vex again! Refrain; While England, "brave England, pursues her destined way, Till war drums arc silent and earth has peace for aye! J. Liddell Kelly. Auckland, October 26, 1914.
