March of St Ignatius

March of St. Ignatius

Noble Knight, leader of a brave array. lead us on, O lead us on

We will fight neath thy sway (2)

What tho’ foes gather near, we don’t fear (2) We’ll not shun, we’ll not quit

this our noble career.

We will fight ever true to death to thee:

true to God to faith and thee. true to thee.

Lead us on gallantly, ever on valiantly

‘Neath thy banner to fight

for the Church and its right.

All for God’s own greater glory is our cry,

our battle cry!

Not for gain, nor in vain is our strife in this life;

but for God who is our king

all to him our hearts we bring.

Growing stronger and stronger

as fighting lasts longer

and purer and purer

to make heaven surer

with crosses and trials

and many denials - we’ll fight!

But to die

loyal and true to our king who doth reign on high! Ignatius lead us on - till we die!!
