Two Songs

"When a Knight"

When a knight won his spurs in the stories of old
he was gentle and brave he was gallant and bold
with a shield on his arm and a lance in his hand
for God and for valour he rode through the land.

No charger have I, and no sword by my side
yet still to adventure and battle I ride
though back into storyland giants have fled
and the knights are no more and the dragons are dead.

Let faith be my shield and let joy be my steed
gainst the dragons of anger the ogres of greed
and let me set free with the sword of my youth
from the castle of darkness the power of the truth.

"Deep Peace"

Deep peace of the wave to you
Of the flowing water
Deep peace of the air to you
Ever breathing still bringing peace

Deep peace of the stars to you
Of the shining heavens
Deep peace of the earth to you
Ever sleeping still bringing peace

Both songs are far from new. The first is an old English folksong and the second is a Celtic prayer. Incidently, they have also both been recorded by Libera. The first is from the newest CD, Free, and the second is from their CD Luminosa and is called 'Attendite.'
