O valiant hearts, who to your glory came' is my favourite.
'Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue proved
Your memory hallowed in the land you loved.'
'Proudly you gathered, rank on rank, to war,
As who had heard God's message from afar
All you had hoped for, all you had, you gave
To save mankind - yourself you scorned to save'
Can't remeber the name of the tune, though, as it was in one of the alternative books. Not 'Ellers', though I do like that.
The tune is 'The Supreme Sacrifice' by Revd. C. Harris. The words and music really pull on the heart strings in my opinion!
If you google 'O valiant hearts tune' you'll find a document with the tune and the words comes out top of the list.
