Uprouse Ye
(Possibly the best hymn that ever was)

Uprouse ye, Christian people, who boast Saint George today,
Arise, gird on your harness: go forth, tread down and slay!
Ye may not cease from battle, ye shall not sheathe the sword,
But cry "Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"
We will not cease from battle, we will not sheathe the sword:
"Saint George, Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"

Is this a day for dalliance, is this a time for sleep,
When Lust and Sloth and Mammon their reign of terror keep?
Bring forth the sign of triumph that always hath sufficed,
On shield of purest whiteness the blood red cross of Christ.
We will not cease from battle, we will not sheathe the sword:
"Saint George, Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"

O thou whose name of splendor is writ upon Thy side,
Who conquering and conquer before Thy host doth ride,
True Lord of Christian knighthood, true King of chivalry,
Thou in Thy saints art glorious: in them we follow Thee.
We will not cease from battle, we will not sheathe the sword:
"Saint George, Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"

We too with heavens armies, we with Saint George this day,
Would seek and smite the dragon, nor falter in the fray,
Till heart and hearth and nation acclaim with one accord
"Saint George, Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"
We will not cease from battle, we will not sheathe the sword:
"Saint George, Saint George for England, and England for the Lord!"

Words: anon.

For all you boy's and girls who don't know when S. George's day is, possibly due to not being English, or perhaps as you are a bit dim, it is the 28th April.
