Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II, 1926-2022
The Cambridge Centre for Christianity is deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.John 11:25-26
‘Elizabeth the Gracious’
You set a crown of pure gold on her head.
She asked for life of you
and you gave her long life.
You shall give her
and make her glad
with the joy of your countenance.
