Summary

If I were King of some great land
With lords and commons to command,
My crown should be with justice bright
Instead of jewels-and Love's light
Should be the sceptre in my hand.

One law of virtue should be planned
That all alike might understand
The simple rule, that right is right-
If I were King.

One Church should stand in God's own sight
Where all who wished to worship, might,
Its ministers should be a band
Of soldiers with a purpose grand
To put all evil thoughts to flight,
If I were King.
