Lyrics:  song1 song 2

I want some va-liant sol-dier here,
I want some va-liant sol-dier here,
I want some va-liant sol-dier here,
to help me bear de cross. (x2)
O hail Ma-ry, hail!
O hail Ma-ry, hail!
O hail Ma-ry, hail! _
To help me bear de cross. (x2)
 

Oh Lord, I want some va-li-ant sol-dier,
I want some va-li-ant sol-dier,
I want some va-liant sol-dier,
to help me bear de cross.  (x2)
For I weep, I weep,
I can't hold out.
If a-ny mer-cy, Lord,
O pi-ty poor me.  (x2)
