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
