Traditional
  1. Our King went forth to Normandy,
    With grace and might of chivalry;
    The God for him wrought marv’lously,
    Where-fore England may call and cry
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
  2. He set a siege, sooth for to say,
    To Harfleur town with Royal array;
    That town he won, and made a fray,
    That France shall rue until Domesday.
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
  3. Then went our King, with all his host
    Through France, for all the Frenchman’s boast;
    Nor spared for dread of least nor most,
    Until he came to Agincourt coast.
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
  4. Then foresooth that Knight comely,
    In Agincourt field he fought manly:
    Through grace of God most mighty,
    He had both the field and the victory.
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
  5. Their dukes and earls, lords and barons,
    Were ta’en and slain and that well soon:
    And some were led into London,
    With joy and mirth and great renown.
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
  6. The gracious God now save our King,
    His people and all his well willing:
    Give him good life and good ending,
    That we with mirth may safely sing.
    Deo gratias:
    Deo gratias Anglia redde pro Victoria.
