    Bind her, grind her, burn her with fire,
    Cast her ashes into the sea,--
    She shall escape, she shall aspire,
    She shall arise to make men free;
    She shall arise in a sacred scorn,
    Lighting the lives that are yet unborn,
    Spirit supernal, splendor eternal,
    England!

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
