Track Name: Deus Vult!
"Brethren, today is manifest in you what the Lord says,
`Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them';

for unless God had been present in your spirits, all of you would not have uttered the same cry.

Although the cry issued from numerous mouths, yet the origin of the cry is as one.

Therefore I say to you that God has drawn it forth from you.

Let that then be your war cry in battle, because it is given to you by God.

When siege is laid upon the enemy, this one cry shall be raised by all the soldiers of God:

'Deus vult! Deus Vult!'"

- Pope Urban II, at the Council of Clermont 1095.
Track Name: Call to Arms
Intro Refrain:
CALL TO
CALL TO ARMS!
Refrain x2:

Verse:
Bear the cross,
of black and white

Raise your swords
to those who fight

Go now,
and never look back

The Holy Land
is under attack!
Jerusalem
an ancient birthright

The judgement of God,
the hammer will smite

Clashing blades
of mighty steel

Will proudly ring
and the pagans will
kneel!

Chorus:
March east
to distant lands

The cross will reach
the desert sands

Honour and glory
have been foretold

Those who resist shall,
die by the sword!

Refrain

Verse 2:

The path is long
the soldiers grow weary

Their hearts are strong
and without fear he

Strikes the wall of
the Holy Land

With valour they fall
with courage they stand

The pilgrims go forth
to battle they ride

To prove their faith
and reclaim their pride

The victory lies
upon the fields

Of war-torn souls
and battered shields

…and the war
marches on!

Martyrs!
They won’t break you...
Martyrs!

Martyrs!
…Retribution!
