Onwards, Our Folk!

By Suzi Marsden AOR

ONWARD! They charged!
For freedom they fought.
For a better way
A brighter day
And a new dawn

In mud they trenched
Against their will
With guns and bombs
Attacking from over the hill

They were not the first
And they were not the last
Just look at our folk
Look at our past

Long ago it happened
they wielded swords of steel
Battle cries, throughout the land
To stop those that others feared

To keep our Gods
our land, and our culture
We fight a different battle today

And to remember the ones that fought for us
That are no longer with us today.

The slain, the brave the worthy
We shall hail you till the end
In Valhalla you shall drink
While our hailing we shall send .
