1 Yours is the name we will honour without reservation;
you are the one we will praise in unfeigned celebration.
Yours is the name
worthy of endless acclaim -
you have our hearts' adoration.

2 Whatever pleasures or riches are found to invite us,
whatever logo or brand is deployed to excite us,
yours is the name:
there could be no-one the same,
no-one like you to delight us.

3 What of the cult of celebrity swirling around us?
Why should the battles of icon and image confound us?
Yours is the name
far beyond stardom and fame -
your grace and greatness astound us!
