As the Americans arose, heaven bound,

Sword in hand, in heavenly gowns.

The crown to keep, the flag to preserve,

her majesty to die for, with no reserve.


A shield on their chest, following their quest,

ready for the battle at hand.

No time for rest, as we are the best,

may sacrifice our lives, then theirs rest.


Armour to gleem in the sun, as we put them

on the run. Spears to cut through the smoke

and dust, Liberty to us is a must! Hold strong;

is the battle cry, for all of us this is just.


Let the Spirit of truth, rise among the hills,

so that God may be with us, in the lowest valleys,

and in the battle fields. Amen
