In ancient times the knights rode out to cheers and loud applause,
To fight our foes, those armed heroes, took up our common cause,
And now a gentler sort suits up to face our fears and ills,
They wear clear shields and masks and gloves to fight this one who kills.
God bless and keep you, fearless ones, who face this threat for all,
And keep us mindful of our debt to you who took this call.
