Four stanzas of Tarrant's original text
(to Ach Gott und Herr)

  1. Now praise we great and famous men
          And women named in story;
    And praise our God who now as then
          Reveals, in all, true glory.

  2. Praise we the wise and brave and strong,
          Who graced their generation:
    Who helped the right and fought the wrong,
          And made our folk a nation.

  3. Praise we the great of heart and mind,
          The singers sweetly gifted,
    Whose music, like a mighty wind,
          The souls of all uplifted.

  4. Praise we the peaceful hand of skill
          Which builded homes of beauty,
    And, rich in art, made richer still
          The fellowship of duty.

  5. Praise we the glorious names we know;
          And they whose names are perished,
    Lost in the haze of long ago,
          In silent love be cherished.

  6. In peace their sacred ashes rest;
          Fulfilled their day's endeavour;
    They blessed the earth, and they are blessed
          Of God and us for ever.
