Courage raged through a single man
To death he valiantly sold
His life for his brethren and love
In the black November cold
 
A blade drawn high
He drowned out whimpering pleas
His sword found flesh and wicked cries
'Tis better to die standing than on your knees

A vicous horde vastly out-scored
Such a man with heroic plight
As his comrades fell he could take no more
And swore death to the fight

Enemy swords rained in storms against the hero's best
And sword in hand he made his stand for his love until his last breath
Blackened arrows from scared afar peircing through his breast
And as he fell he met his love, A truly Glorious Death.
