Brothers! The midnight of our Cause Is shrouded in our fate— The demon Goths pollute our halls With fire and lust and hate! Be strong, be valiant, be assured— Strike home for Heaven and Right!

But I have heard it everywhere, Vibrating like a mystic knell; 'Tis as perpetual as the air And solemn as a funeral bell. By scorched lagoon and murky swamp, Mywrath was never in the lurch; I've...
