Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

Yo-Yo Ma and Alison Krauss/Anthony Kearns - The Wexford Carol
This is a lovely tune, dating back to the 12th century. Mark Steyn featured this on his Christmas show last year, with a Anthony Kearns performing a traditional Irish tenor version.
