Second verse of God Save the Queen

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall;
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix,
Oh, save us all!

A verse that was inserted at one time but later removed

Lord, grant that Marshal Wade,
May by thy mighty aid,
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush and like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush,
God save the King.

There you go Guest at 07:34 AM, it's a pretty universal thing to have bloodthirsty words in national anthems.
