O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen to rejoice in thy strength:
give her her heart's desire, and deny not the request of her lips;
but prevent her with thine everlasting blessing,
and give her a long life, even for ever and ever. Amen.

N.B. for male monarchs (James I - James II) "Elizabeth our Queen" was replaced by "Our sov'reign lord the King" (and "her" by "his"/"him")
