Come one and all and hear our call
Of “Albion Forever”
Come put away your troubles all
And let us stand together
Though times are hard and some may fall
Albion will yet prevail
Come make a stand: defend the land
Of Albion, forever.
The Greenwood forest deep and dark
It beats strong with the Hunter’s heart
And through the glades the Wild Hunt runs
While Puck cavorts and has fun.
In Albion’s north, in Eaton’s Vale
A keep is held by men in mail
It guards the path to our land’s heart
Like beaten dogs our foes depart.
Marchwood keep, the mouth of hell
From whence come evils foul and fell
At your peril travel here
Where fools alone are free from fear.
Off Cornwall’s cliffs the raging sea
Breeds fisherfolk and farmers free
They ne’er shall be another’s slave
Agressors find a watery grave.
Oh Albion, Mother of us all
In our hearts we hear her call!
Free, unfettered folk are we:
Before us all our enemies flee.
