Description: The text was introduced under James I as part of a liturgy (not formalised in the Book of Common Prayer) used to mark the anniversary of the sovereign's accession. It was recognised more formally, after the restoration, in the Book of Common Prayer, 1662. More specifically, the text was used for a coronation anthem, 1660 - 1727.
