Noble Knights (March of St. Ignatius)

*

Noble Knight, leader of a brave array. lead us on, O lead us on
We will fight neath thy sway, neath thy sway!
What tho’ foes gather near, we don’t fear, we don’t fear!
We’ll not shun, we’ll not quit
this our noble career.

We will fight ever true to death to thee:
true to God to faith and thee. true to thee.

Lead us on gallantly, ever on valiantly
‘Neath thy banner to fight
for the Church and its right.
All for God’s own greater glory is our cry,
our battle cry!
Not for gain, nor in vain is our strife in this life;
but for God who is our king
all to him our hearts we bring.

Growing stronger and stronger
as fighting lasts longer
and purer and purer
to make heaven surer
with crosses and trials
and many denials – we’ll fight!

But to die
loyal and true to our king who doth reign on high!
Ignatius lead us on – till we die!!

🌿 Palm Sunday 2019 🌿

 

🌿

Lord God,
I give you thanks, for you are good, and your mercy is endless.
Here I stand, at the start of this holy week,
This week in which your church remembers Jesus’ passion and death,
And I am distracted by many things.
Turn my eyes now to the One who comes in your name
The one who opens the gates of righteousness
The one who answers when we call.
I bless you, Lord, for shining your light upon me,
And for sending your son to us, in human frailty.
To walk the road we walk.
Open my eyes that I may see him coming,
And may praise him with a pure heart.
And may walk in the way of his suffering,
And share also in his resurrection.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever.

Amen.

🌿
