Now, multifold, let Britain's patient power
Be proven within us for the world to see,
None are exempt from service in this hour;
And vanquished in ourselves we dare not be.
Now, for a sunlit future, we can show
The clenched resolved endurance that defies
Daemons in dark, - and toward that future go
With earth's defended freedom in our eyes.
In every separate soul let courage shine -
A kneeling angel holding faith's front-line.
