Lyrics

Land of the Virgin Queen

We face the future / We face the sea / We face the unknown / Driven by the need to be free

The dawn arises / The shining gleam of the sun / The time arises / To pack what we know and run

Across the blue depths we venture / Westward, following the path of the light / In our small hope filled ship / For 5 months of hard days and nights Sent for a profit / the promise of riches ahead / We must survive / Too many are already dead

A small number / The hope of a new society / One founded on truth / And goodness, we’ll live righteously

Many came before us / but they did not succeed / We invoke God’s will in chorus / From tyranny we must be freed / In Virginia, the Virgin Queen

The beautiful landscape, the sun is high  / The wild blue mountains, clean air,  midnight sky / In this strange place where redmen live / We have nothing, we take what they give / This world is unforgiving / famine, death, constant threats / God’s will is forsaken / He won’t let our prayers be met

Create the future / Across the sea / The hope of mankind / Born of the need to be free

Many came before us / but they did not succeed / We invoke God’s will in chorus / From tyranny we must be freed / In Virginia, the Virgin Queen

In Virginia, the Virgin Queen / The few among us remain, to see / The time of starving / The ghosts exorcised / Of Smith’s Generall Historie

Perhaps someday the time will come / when the price we paid will be worth / when every ear will come to hear / the story of liberty’s birth

A time of great trial / Of unforgiving famine and plight / Rise to the challenge / Establish justice / we must and shall fight

Many came before us / but they did not succeed / we invoke God’s will in chorus / From tyranny we must be freed / In Virginia, the Virgin Queen

Perhaps someday the time will come / when the price we paid will be worth / When every ear will come to hear / The Story of Liberty’s Birth.

Victory or Death
