Getting Value From Tkinter Text Object

I have an app, in which I need to get the entire contents of a Tkinter Text 
object. It will be of an arbitrary length.

The only option I can find that even seems to be close to what I want, is 
the get() method, which expects a starting and ending point. Starting point 
should be easy enough, but I have no way of knowing what the ending point 
will be.

Is there some other method for Text objects that I can use, that has a 
similar function to the Entry object's get() method?
