One thosand miles I'll tread

 

Task complete before I rest my head

 

No man alive or dead commands my sword

 

I answer only to the Lord

 

I'm beyond kneeling and kissing rings

 

I owe only allegiance to the king of kings

 

I am a protector of pilgrims great and weak

 

The opressor shall rest in the vulture's beak

 

Whether it be black or red cross

 

I mourn each of my fallen comrades and their loss

 

But they are praised in song 

 

Cleared by all wrong

 

They earned a praise from the Seraphim seven

 

And a place among the ranks of Heaven

 

For our lord is the Soverign of Nazerene

 

By Providence my armor and blades sheen 

 

My enemies are the wicked and the soldiers of the morningstar

 

They I will hunt however far

 

For devils have no place in God's realm

 

They I drive out crosses adornig my helm

 

Jesus Christ in his majesty keeps me free from doubt

 

For him I cry my battle shout

 

For if God wills

 

I protect,hunt,and kill
