Armor clad, guardians creep
Keeping watch for those who sleep
Careful child, don’t make much noise
Men on a mission; God employed.
Beyond the river, evil creeps
seeking to devour those who sleep
Rest not brave men, save our souls
And one by one, the night patrol
For if we did let down our guard
It’s not just land they’d seek to scar.
They’d take our wives, our children too
They’d burn our homes and run us through
This is why you join and serve
For this night, you were preserved
Rise up brave man, take your sword
And slay the wicked all abhor.
For the men I served with long ago – few will ever know of your bravery.
