Multicultural British National Anthem

I listened to the British National anthem today and it suddenly struck me that it's really not very inclusive.
I mean, given that the UK is NOT in any way a Christian nation(not a theocracy); we have what the government has delighted in calling a multicultural mix.
We have some Christian's, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Jews, Rastas, Krishnas, Druids, Wiccans, Jedis and of course the vast majority of us are now Atheist.
Yeah, yeah, go right ahead and dispute it but until there's a box on the census which asks 'Did you tick the box corresponding to your religion because it is what you were branded at birth?' the census (on at least this point) is hokum.
So, to reflect what the loss of life in two world wars and big business's greed to maintain their profits after that massive loss of workforce, has done to this country's mix of cultures, I thought it might be time for a rewrite of the anthem.
However, as I'm not a songwriter the best I can offer, by way of an example only, is a modification of what the English/Brits currently belt out when ordered.
Yahweh save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
Allah save the Queen.

Thy choicest gifts in store,
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign:
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
Pretend save the Queen.

O Vishnu, our Brahma, arise,
Scatter thine enemies,
And make them fall:
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On thee our hopes we fix:
Goddess save us all.

Not in this land alone,
But be Force's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Krishna make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world over.

From every latent foe,
From the assassins blow,
Buddha save the Queen!
O'er her thine arm extend,
For Britain's sake defend,
Our mother, prince, and friend,
Jah save the Queen!

This is final verse is less sung now so I've left it in it's antique state.
lord grant that Marshall Wade
May by thy mighty aid
Victory bring.
May he sedition hush,
And like a torrent rush,
Rebellious Scots to crush.
god save the Queen!

Not keen?
Nor I, but it's probably best if we make a start, so we can get used to the idea because, if things keep going the way they are, and the Government don't wake the fuck up and change tack from its feeble attempt to stamp on Islam by trying to ramp up Christianity, rather than poo-pooing the supernatural in all its foolish forms, which is truly the only way to stem the Middle Eastern totalitarian tide, don't you think it's very likely that all our great-grandchildren will be wailing out "Allah Praise our gracious Allah" in Arabic?
