Passion, power, bravado, and brilliance.

Would King Henry be proud of the army assembled?

Would Xerces cry at the state of the soldier?

Would Alexander yearn for the strength of my shield?

Brotherhood knows no master but fate,

To submit was King Arthur's courage.

Maximus, Maximus; the horn of Valere it blares,

Lead the charge great general of mine.

Achilles, Hercules, and Zeus would be proud,

King David, For Judah! Let Yahweh be praised.

Lord of Hosts let the banner be raised!

Men of courage, shout fiercely this, and every day.

Meekness is mine, great strength resplendent.

Men of ages I summon thee, Lord God I honor thee!
