In the home of holy see
 
In the heart of Christianity
 
Came forth an army of strangers
 
The seat of power is in danger
 
There's an army of a thousand swords
 
They have no kings or lords
 
Their fall from grace will pave their path
 
To the realms of infernal wrath
Then the  guard of 189
 
Pourd forth the secure the holy line
 
In the year of our Lord 1527
 
Fought with their lives on the steps of heaven
 
Blood setting with the sun

 Lord thy will be done
 
They fought for his holy grace
 
Outside his home and favorite place
 
They fought for their faith
 
Even as they died and joined the ranks of the wraith
 
They slayed their enemy so clodly

And gave their lives so boldly

They fought with the Lord's glory
 
Even now legends are told about this story
 
The rest were under guard of forty and two
 
 
The holy one led long a secret avenue
 
 
 Towards Castle Saint Angelo's safe walls
 
They protected the holy site even as they die and fall

Their enemy ws granted infernal desolation
 
Their path to history is paved with salvation
