This, I do so, willingly. Without reservations of the heart. I offer my shoulder to thy wheel, my strength, to thus impart. My voice, I lend to your cause. Champion, to which you undertake. My arms, I spread to encompass, kith and kin, you now care take. A heart, that beats strong and true. That has known joy and felt deep weeping. One, so full of love for you, I give, unto your keeping. If there were the need so great, as to sacrifice completely. My life, I 'd give, for yours to spare. This I do, so willingly.
Placement: 1st
