1897God of our fathers, known of old --Lord of our far-flung battle line --

Beneath whose awful hand we holdDominion over palm and pine --

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget -- lest we forget!The tumult and the shouting dies --The Captains and the Kings depart --

Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,An humble and a contrite heart.

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget -- lest we forget!Far-called our navies melt away --On dune and headland sinks the fire --

Lo, all our pomp of yesterdayIs one with Nineveh and Tyre!

Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,

Lest we forget -- lest we forget!If, drunk with sight of power, we looseWild tongues that have not Thee in awe --

Such boastings as the Gentiles use,Or lesser breeds without the Law --

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget -- lest we forget!For heathen heart that puts her trustIn reeking tube and iron shard --

All valiant dust that builds on dust,And guarding calls not Thee to guard.

For frantic boast and foolish word,

Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord!Amen.

.: :.

Asked to write a poem in honor of Queen Victoria of England\'s anniversary, Kipling wrote this reflection on power, pride and the British Empire.
His reminder not to forget all or our vanities, and plea for mercy on \"us\", the most powerful nation on earth, did NOT make the queen happy. As a result, she refused to make him poet laureate of the UK.

Have no money to buy a car? Do not worry, just because that\'s real to take the credit loans to resolve all the problems. Thus get a financial loan to buy everything you require.
