Thoughts concerning the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II
1. Constitutional Monarchy
2. Historical Legacy of Empire
3. Mourning in Malaysia
And thus it hath pleased Almighty God to take out of this transitory life and into His Divine Mercy the Most High, Most Mighty, and Most Excellent Monarch; our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth the Second of blessed memory.
Behold! I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, ‘Death is swallowed up in victory’
Where, O death, is thy sting? Where, O grave, is thy victory?
- 1 Corinthians 15:51-55
God Save the King
