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

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
