Representative Text

1. To the knights in the days of old,
Keeping watch on the mountain height,
Came a vision of Holy Grail
And a voice through the waiting night:
Follow, follow, follow the gleam;
Banners unfurled o’er all the world;
Follow, follow, follow the gleam
Of the chalice that is the Grail.

2. And we who would serve the King,
And loyally Him obey,
In the consecrate silence know
That the challenge still holds today,
Follow, follow, follow the gleam
Standards of worth o’er all the earth;
Follow, follow, follow the gleam
Of the Light that shall bring the dawn.
