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
We are forsaken, God 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
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.
