Lyrics

St. Andrew's Cross
Copyright Dave Nealon May 9, 2020

Thirteen wounds
Doomed like stars
Our bond brothers
Southern wars

Bold blue crossbuck
Struck with scars
Marshaled marching
Scorching hearts

Pledge your allegiance to all creation
From every tribe and tongue and nation
Our voices ring a declaration
And the last bugle calls
Haul it down, haul it down once and for all

Spangled sticks
Fixed across the other
Aflutter in the wind
Kindred suffer

Sign of danger
Anger's shrine
Crimes uncontested
Bless├Ęd chimes

Pledge your allegiance to all creation
From every tribe and tongue and nation
Our voices ring a declaration
And the last bugle calls
Haul it down, haul it down once and for all

Someone shot St. Andrew's cross
False lost cause and human costs
Exhausted prophets howl the call
Haul it down once and for all

Pledge your allegiance to all creation
From every tribe and tongue and nation
Our voices ring a declaration
And the last bugle calls
Haul it down, haul it down once and for all
