Sound Every Horn
by
Elsa Saxenkammer
(November, AS XXXVIII -- 2003)

Sound every horn and ring every bell
Beat a quick time on each drum
Geoffrey and Catherine ascend to the throne
Sing of the pair
Noble and fair
Sing of the sweet days that come

First among warriors our new prince has proven
His prowess and chivalry out on the field
Greet him with cheers and with glad exultations
Admire the might of the sword that he wields

Sound every horn and ring every bell
Beat a quick time on each drum
Geoffrey and Catherine ascend to the throne
Sing of the pair
Noble and fair
Sing of the sweet days that come

First among ladies our princess is shining
A sweet inspiration to lord and to land
People rejoice for your homes and your kindred
Are safe in the shelter of her loving hand

Sound every horn and ring every bell
Beat a quick time on each drum
Geoffrey and Catherine ascend to the throne
Sing of the pair
Noble and fair
Sing of the sweet days that come

First among legends our homeland is singing
A song of great triumph for this day is glad
Onto our thrones come a prince and a princess
The strongest and wisest and best to be had

Sound every horn and ring every bell
Beat a quick time on each drum
Geoffrey and Catherine ascend to the throne
Sing of the pair
Noble and fair
Sing of the sweet days that come
