Arthur’s Children

by Wenceslas Farrier

This does be being inspired by the Lord Darkendale’s oft heard remark that the Lions do be having no cheerful or happy songs of merriment. This does be being an effort at celebration of our people’s past, present and future all.

When I was young, I heard a tale,
of a king both strong and bold,
whose heart was just, whose sword was swift,
as every story told.
Now years have passed, the king is slain,
few knights are left to ride.
But Arthur’s folk have perished not,
we still stand side by side.

For we are Arthur’s children
and still our banners fly.
For we are Arthur’s children
now hear our battle cry.
For we are Arthur’s children
famous throughout the land.
For we are Arthur’s children
together we still stand.

From Camelot brave people ride,
as knights did in days gone by,
and for honour, truth and justice,
all foes they will defy.
So please join us now in singing,
and be of hearty cheer,
for despite those foes best efforts,
our people are still here.

For we are Arthur’s children
and still our banners fly.
For we are Arthur’s children
now hear our battle cry.
For we are Arthur’s children
famous throughout the land.
For we are Arthur’s children
together we will stand.

Wherever the sun shines brightly,
wherever the wind blows cold,
with body, heart and pattern,
against the dark we’ll hold.
Through all the world, our voice rings out,
to Evil’s great dismay,
For ‘gainst the blackest depth of night
we bring the break of day.

For we are Arthur’s children
and still our banners fly.
For we are Arthur’s children
now hear our battle cry.
For we are Arthur’s children
famous throughout the land.
For we are Arthur’s children
together we will stand.
Together we will stand!
