Now I have seen the mighty mountain and heard the restless sea

There is no greater image that my old heart may bring to me

For I am not a stranger adrift upon some foreign shore

But a native born who sees trouble that’s coming soon and more.

I pray that we acknowledge that our future holds great danger

We forgot how times are changed ere we welcomed in the stranger

And so it is that now we are prepared as we must need be

To keep our homeland safe and from all its enemies be free !

I’ve seen the troops in battle dress

They make me proud I must confess

I wish they were but dressing-up

To partake of sweet valour’s  cup

Instead of battling someone’s cause

While fighting in these futile wars.

There is no break nor any end

The fracas leaves no untouched friend

There’s no peace found to fill the air

We’ve only distress everywhere.

The saddest part we must accept

We’ve done our job and are bereft !

The men who died on that first day,

Our heroes who did lead the way

They won the field in spite of fear,

Though lack of powder cost them dear.

Those patriots did do their best

And tried to scatter all the rest,

It took five years to end that war

So many lives and too much more.

Now once again we face a fight

To conquer dark, embrace the light,

As evil does lay siege our door

And aims to crush us evermore !
