There’s a man, on a cross
He’s endured suffering, and loss
His people, they do pray
For his mercy, one day

We have heard, of the Devil
He is cruel, and unlevel
We seem him, as fear
Cruelty, sheds not a tear

As long as there’s death,
There shall be an everlasting breath
To our saviors, we sing
Our eternal king

In fields of green, we stand
Upon our great land
In our hamlets, we thrive
As journeymen, we arrive

‘To war’, we cry
While we stand with those, who’ll die
To arms, and wall
And the screaming call

Together, we join
To fight, for precious coin
And kill, as we do
For death, that we rue
Religion, in our heart
To bitter battle, we start
Unsure why, but for pride
As one, side-by-side

If only, we become one complete
Trotting, on weary feet
Throw away, our tools of harm
And embrace, arm-in-arm

So now, with terror wrought
And families, distraught
We strive for good
Like we always should

And leave in our wake
For our own, thankful sake
A trail to follow
No more grief, will we swallow

Now, we leave our land
In the future’s, grasping hands
