    The Marshalls Cross A Song by Sir Bryce de Byram

    RAZO: Henry Curtmantle, King of England, had his eldest son crowned in his life time to as-

    sure both the succession of the Crown and the preservation of his empire, which stretched from

    the Pyrenees to the far North Sea. He established William Marshall, a simple household

    knight, to the role of sire in arms to his son Henry, called The Young King. But fates wheel

    turned against the Kings device and The Young King died of a flux. On his deathbed he bade

    The Marshall to carry his crusaders cross to Jerusalem, which William did doing more in two

    years than most do in ten. Upon his death bed The Marshall, now raised by fortune and court-

    ly skill to Regent of England under the minor King Henry III, returned to the Knight Templars,

    whom he served for as a lay brother while in Palestine, for the salvation of his soul.


    The hammer blows of combat are the sweetest

    psalms I know

    Sing Exalt and Hosanna at the coursing of the


    This cross I wear for Henry I will bear unto

    my grave

    My oath fulfilled my duty done and two souls

    shall I save.

    The Marshall sore with grieving he has come

    now o'er from France.

    His shield, his sword, his hauberk and his ever

    steady lance.

    In service to the Young King did this captain

    ply his trade.

    The spirit fled, the oath assumed now captive

    to a shade.


    Take up your arms, said Henry, Roi the

    father to the knight

    Employ your skill, harass the foe and strike

    with all your might.

    But come ye back to England and unto my

    court attend.

    A king is ever needful of true valiant, loyal



    And so did William travel to the land height


    As confrere to the Temple for a time he was


    His bread, his wine, his mass he took with

    brothers all around

    Until at last his oath discharged he found him

    homeward bound.


    Now many years and many kings the

    Marshall he did serve.

    One called a rogue, one hailed a hero pledged

    unto the Lord.

    The Marshall at his death bed, as Regent to the


    Called forth his loyal vassals and he bid them

    stand around.


    When I was o'ver in Outreamer I pondered

    on my death

    And so I claim the Temple as I draw out my

    last breath.

    May God and Michael guide me as I flee unto

    the grave

    My vows fulfilled, my oath discharged, and

    two souls have I saved.

    CHORUS (have I saved)
