The third crusade was a subject of many films, novels, and so much more. It was also my favorite moment in history and deserves a piece in its own right.

 Knights of the cross

 

Fighting without a loss
 

Unite our armies to honour our Lord

Faith in our cause and my sword

 

Holy land, we are marching on
 

To camp at night and besiege at dawn

 

Ten thousand men forgetting life and tragedy

God sons ask for thyself to honour Jesus majesty

 

We shall return proud from the sea
 

To see Christ's home finally free

 Led by Richard the Lionheart hero of the century
 

Fought his men and for Cristianity


We proudly fight with our blades

 

Saracen fighers die where they invade
 

With a great king upon our side
 

The Lionheart leading the charge as he rides

Richard the Lionheart took part in the third great fight

 

Followed by England and holy knights

Fought forces of mighty Saladin
 

Fought under moon and blades silver sheen
 

 Some were defenders of the crown
 

Our legions gave off the divine sound
 

Our forces will unite this land

 

As we stain it with blood spilled by our hand
