The first anthem used in Serpens Land was the British anthem: "God Save the King/Queen". To this day, the song (albeit with different lyrics) is used as the royal anthem of Serpens Land. Serpens Land's national anthem, "Loyalists of Serpens Land", was adopted as the official national anthem in 1983. "Loyalists of Serpens Land" originated as a pro-monarchy song during the Republican Era of Serpens Land. It was used in an unofficial capacity following the establishment of the Realm of Serpens Land.
"Loyalists of Serpens Land" makes reference to King Edward I's opposition to General Allard's regime during the Republican Era. Unlike "God Save the King", the lyric "[a]nd to our King and to our land" does not change with the gender of the monarch.
O come ye faithful loyalists of Serpens Land,
And to our King and to our land,
We pledge our loyalty to them,
While sparing nothing, giving all to Serpens Land!
O come ye faithful on accord,
Who stands for our King Edward,
To fight the tyrant Allardís Republicans!
"God Save the King" ("God Save the Queen" when the monarch is female) is the royal anthem of Serpens Land. It is played to honour the monarch and used as the royal salute by military bands.
God save our gracious King,
Our strong and noble King,
Long may he reign!
Let his light guard our shores,
And heíll forevermore,
Guide us in peace and war,
God save the King!
May our land ever be,
Free without slavery,
From shore to shore!
But should our foes arise,
Let our King be our guide,
For him our defence we keep,
God save our King!
