In Memoriam


Lead them to the light, Michael of the flaming sword,
Those warriors who have fallen in honor's shadow.

Hold them fast in the warmth of your presence
After their sacrifice to defend the creeds and crowns
To which they swear their oaths.

Take them to a place of peace, of rest, of safety,
After they have bravely fought to secure those ideals for us.

Lead them to the light, Michael of the flaming sword,
To those warriors who have fallen in honor's shadow.
