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

Hundreds of citizens have written to Tony Blair from every part of Britain urging that ‘God Save The Queen’ is replaced by a ‘more appropriate’ tune. ‘Their general opin ion is “England, get your own national anthem; ‘God Save The Queen’ is a British song.
