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
