about

On the vigil of his knighting, as is required of him, Anselm spends the whole knight in prayer in the chapel, asking the Lord for His blessings.

lyrics

Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Hate and revenge light my soul
Fire and rage burn me with pain
I’ve come a long way to forget it all
But still it burns deep inside me
Fire, leave me

I need your love, I need your power
I need your blessings (to) carry on regardless
I need your hand, I need your armour
I need your breath (to) make me stronger
Anger, leave my soul


Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Three years have now gone by
Three years of hard toil
Shield and blade I handle
Horse I can now ride
Mace to dismantle
Horse fast like lightning
Like a strong warrior
All I need now is a heart

Fire or water, give me your blessings
Careless or lover, give me my heading
Don’t keep me waiting, burning is my soul
Give me an answer, give me a sign made of light
Light my soul

Father, give me the power to fight
Father, give me a shield and a light
Strong is the knight who can spare his adversary
Father, give me a sword and a heart

Dark is this hour and gone is the sun
In candlelight I kneel to You as a son
Revenge and anger both linger in my heart
Father, give me a soul to forgive

Dawn will soon come and the light shall arise
From high in the sky it shall shine on a new knight
Lord, give me eyes to see and let live
Father, give me a soul to forgive
