Noble warrior renowned
Listen to this harrowing sound
Draining cries of earth’s deep sorrow
We will live to see the morrow?
Life is leaking from a crack
Faceless death will now attack
Who has left us silent here?
What foe won’t visibly appear?
We know not who or why we fight
Though we press on in this bleak night
O! That gray would fade from sight
And black be black and white be white!
