Can  anyone please identify the source of the following verse?

 

"He died as few men get the chance to die,

Fighting for a world’s morality;

He died the noblest death a man may die,

Fighting for God and Right and Liberty.

And such a death is Immortality."

 

It is not on a war memorial (that I know of), but was quoted in her speech by the lady who unveiled one of the war memorials I am researching.

Thank you

RM

Thank you both. I don't think I have come across Oxenham before.
