Come ye Blessed
Territorial song of
Come ye Blessed is the territorial song of the Pitcairn Islands. God Save the Queen is the territory's official national anthem. Come ye Blessed is also the official territorial song of Norfolk Island and it is sung at most island events.
The lyrics are taken from the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 25, verses 34-36 and 40.
Then shall the King
Say unto them
On his right hand:
Come ye blessed of my Father
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you
From the foundation of the world
I was hunger’d and ye gave me meat,
I was thirsty and ye gave me drink
I was a stranger and ye took me in,
Naked and ye clothed me,
I was sick and ye visited me,
I was in prison and ye came unto me
In as much ye have done it unto one of the least of
These my brethren
Ye have done it unto me,
Ye have done it unto me.
