Garter oath in the reign of Henry IV

Setting: England, early 15th century

I'm trying to find out the exact form of words of the oath for the Knights of the Garter. Searches I've done using the terms oath, garter, knights, order and combinations thereof tend to come up with sites saying 'and then the oath was administered' without saying exactly what it consisted of. I've found the website for the Chapel of St George, and they have a 'contact us' address, but I hardly like to bother such an august institution for a fanfic!

Also checked: Ian Mortimer The Fears of Henry IV
T B Pugh Henry V and the Southampton Plot

Any help gratefully received!
