SPEECH TO THE SOLDIERS BEFORE THE BATTLE OF AGENCOURT 1415


Gather hither you brave men of England

hear my voice tremble as I speak these words

words that come into existance from my heart

lyrics like a play about to be put to the ordeal



Here we find ourselves far from English soil

the soil our ancestors toiled over the generagions

so we could raise our children within its green pastures

an England where to be born is to be proud and to die for

is an honour among men.



As the light breaks the morrow morn

we must do battle with the French once more

let this be the last time this enemy of England

stands before us in battle, let this fray end in victory



In the morrow you men of old England stand proud

pray for God and Saint George and for the King

spare not the weapons which will do you proud

but make every blow count and every arrow a target



Let us kneel in prayer now and remember our loved ones

let us not forget brothers those who will shed blood tomorrow

that we will not forget you and that you die in honour...

now three cheers for Harry as we prepare for battle

three cheers as we meet those French on this field

and three cheers for the victory we will gain in this fight

Let God and Saint Crispin be our guiding light on his day...
