ON WESTMINSTER BRIDGE

 

  1. Across the River Thames is the centre of government
      the Palace of Westminster shines out in the morning sun;
     
  2. behind the glowing Parliament is the Abbey in white
      beside the shrine of the State stands the symbol of God!
     
  3. Hand in hand are the powers that govern our lives
      the secular and sacred in charge, clasped together.
     
  4. Beside the river, I will not be cowed by the gold that glitters
      for I am but a little boat, and yours is the rudder I need!
