Shortly after Clermont the crusade begins.

With prayer on our lips


From Europa we sail


A fleet of invading ships


Sands under our feet


Boreal heaven above


On a misson sent from God


To absolve our sins


To cast the invader aside


As ambition prescripes


A throne below his celestial showing


For Acre,Jaffa, and Jerusalem 


We go by land and sea


Harken the call to Nazerene


Orders given by the Holy See


From Venice we sail and as Franks we march


Mater Maria guide us to victory


Holy fire burns in our hearts


Fire spreads from our torch


Casting a glow in the nights


Some die in the storms


But not before the castles shall fall


Wth Godfrey and Raymond  by our sides


Adorned in chain and plate


To holy battle we sail and ride
