The Asisian Knights Song

 

(to the tune of Amazing Grace, on a lone bagpipe)

 

 

 

The Asisian Song.

 

(To my friend Lady Grace Whatsername von Diddit)

 

Tis amaze zing Grace, and so profound,

that a wee little thing like me,

who once was free, but now Im bound,

to a world of insan-it-teeeee.

 

Twas fate that taught my heart to dream,

to be free my heart thus screamed,

how precious did that scream appear,

when I my self redeemed.

 

Through many dangers, toils and snares,

I have already been.

Tis love that saw me safe thus far,

And love is ev-er-green.

 

The Way has promised good to me,

the Way, my hope, secures;

the Way, my shield and armour be,

as long as life endures.

 

Yea, when this flesh and heart doth fail,

and mortal life shall cease,

I shall posses within the veil,

that time of eternal peace.

 

The world shall soon dissolve like snow,

the sun refuse to shine,

but love which called me there within,

is now and forever mine.

 

When weve been there ten thousand years,

bright shining as the sun,

we have no less days to sing loves praise,

than when we first begun.

 

Merlin of Exmoor.
