If your eternal glory Cast death upon the laurel leaf, May to your unawakened sleep Our pious reverence bring a deep relief. And hero of Victory, wherever you fell, Either at home or at sea or in a strange land, In the wounded heart of a world thirsty for Freedom, Forever all alive you shall stand.
