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.

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.

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!
