I stand before this gathering storm,
My heart a bright flame.
Weary, but fiercely determined
Saddened and grieving,
Angered and outraged
in this place I stand fast.
My heels dug into this holy soil, not to be moved.
The strength of my arms to fortify our battered people.
The love in my heart to give comfort to the weeping.
The truth of my tongue to bring. The fulfillment of justice and sovereignty to our land.
This I swear by land, sea, and sky.
