The Tales of Swords...



We are Brothers
We fight for one another
We give our lives freely
That others may live
By the grace of God
May Lord Jesus hear our prayers
And his Angels take us home
Where peace and tranquility lay
Of those of us today who will die
Hear our battle cry
Raise our standard high
Let all mankind see
That we are sword brothers
That we feel the blade
We are humble servants
For our Lord and King
Giving all glory to heaven
And God its King
Of those of us today who will die
Hear our battle cry
