Battle Cry

Mark Stone

All we of common circumstance

Stand ready at the front,

That we may end this bloody dance

And save the ones we love

For freedom is our battle cry,

And she shall bear us forth,

That though we fight and bleed and die,

Our foes shall suffer worse.

Remember now, ‘midst men and kings,

Why gather we this host

That we might hope and comfort bring

To those who matter most.
