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!!
