"I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,
Entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love;
The love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,
That lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
The love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
The love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

Verses two and three are behind the cut )

Words Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, music Gustav Holst ("Jupiter").
