The Power of Four

Words and music by: Neil Myers (2004)

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
Together
We’re stronger
We join and proud we stand

Now the day has come, we are one
Standing tall for our Lions call
We’re stronger
Together
We are the power of four

How do England get away with using God Save the Queen as their national anthem? Unless there has been some act of independence passed, Her Maj is our Queen as well – like it or not – and the anthem belongs to the UK, not just England.
