Pope Uban made a plea
calling upon Europe’s knights,
arm yourself, set Jerusalem free
as thousand’s answered, the call to arms.
Thousands came out to fight
these warriors for god,
knowing, if they fall in battle
their sins will be forgiven.
Europe’s forces, God’s warriors
took on the might of the east,
these warriors of the desserts
were caught off guard…
First crusade, saw Christian victories
but these were short lived,
as city by city were lost
crusade’s over; Europe’s knights retreated.
We will always remember
a Pope’s call to arms,
thousand’s of Europe’s warriors
lie, in the sands of the Holy Land.
