Verse 1
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. 
Verse 2
And there's another country, I've heard of long ago, 
Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know; 
We may not count her armies, we may not see her King; 
Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering; 
And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase, 
And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.
