MONT ALBERT
SURREY HILLS ROLL OF HONOUR
THEIR PRAISE IS HYMN'D BY LOFTIER HARPS THAN MINE
DEATHLESS NATION'S HONOUR
(Names)

NERVED BY THE MAGIC OF THE TRUMP OF WAR
THOUGH ALL THEIR LIVES HAD BEEN TO PEACE CONFESS'D.
THEY BLAZED A GLORY-TRACK THROUGH PRACTISED FOE,
AND GAINED THE LAURELS OF A WOND'RING WORLD.
THEIR SIRES UPRAISED THEIR HEADS IN LOFTY PRIDE,
THEIR GENTLE MOTHERS, LOVING BRAVELY STEM'D
THE SWELLING TIDE OF GRIEF WHILE EXULTATION
SPRANG IN JOY TO KNOW THEIR SONS WERE MEN.
