The Call
by
Catherine de Gray
May 4, 2004 (A.S. XXXIX)

Come now all you noble warriors
Our King calls you now to arms
Banners furl and drums are rolling
As our people march to war

          Rise up now all West Kingdom
          Raise your sword and raise your spear
          Fight to save your friends and family
          For your foes are drawing near

Let none dare to name us enemy
Let none dare to raise their swords
For we are are a mighty people
Mighty in both deed and word
Form your ranks and stand together
Friend by friend and side by side
Take your leave of home and family
We are summoned, now we ride

          Rise up now all West Kingdom
          Glory filled and honour bound
          Guard your lands and principalities
          Win the day and win renown

Hear now Uther call his people
Western banner flies on high
Gather now upon the battlefield
Raise your blades up to the sky
When our enemy is vanquished
When our foes are slain or fled
We will come back home victorious
And leave them weeping o’er their dead

          Rise up now all West Kingdom
          Raise your sword and raise your spear
          Fight to save your friends and family
          For your foes are drawing near!
