The trumpeters in a row,
With a note as clear as a bell,
And all the flutes and the fifes below,
And the brazen throats, and the strings of fire,
That the Mother, the Queen, the heart's desire,

To gaze and to watch and to wait for Her
Sons and lovers and subjects all,
The high and the low together—
From Princes that ride in the festival
To us in the crowd who but shout and gaze;
Thanks to our God for her lengthened days
