'Queen Mary's Song' is a song written by the English composer Edward Elgar in 1889. The words are from 'Lute Song' by Tennyson.

It was composed between 14 June and 1 July 1889, and dedicated to 'J. H. Meredith'.According to Percy Young (in 'Elgar O. M.') Elgar pencilled in a note on the MS that J. H. Meredith was an honorary member of the Worcester Amateur Instrumental Society

The song was first published by Orsborn & Tuckwood in 1889, then by Ascherberg in 1892. It was re-published in 1907 as one of the 'Seven Lieder of Edward Elgar', with English and German words.
