The Power of Four is the joint anthem for the four Home Nations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
It was specially commissioned by Clive Wilkinson who thought it vital that the Lions had a rousing anthem of their own to scare the bejesus out of the Kiwis.
It was first performed by Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins before the British and Irish Lions rugby union match against Argentina at the Millennium Stadium in 2005. Unfortunately it was neither anthemic nor rousing.
The Power of Four
From the four corners of our lands
We’re united, hand in hand
We join and proud we stand
Now the day has come, we are one
Standing tall for our Lions call
We are the power of four
