Born in darkness, a dream given life, Holy warriors to bring forth the light. Armed with zeal, armoured with faith, Gods of battle at the fore of the fight. Swords of the Emperor, shields of Mankind, Destined for war, fated for death. Protectors of the weak, slayers of evil, We fight ‘til we draw our last dying breath. There is no retreat, there is no surrender, Our hate of the foe drives us eternally on. While aliens live, while heresy festers, There can be no peace until the last war is won. Strengthen your heart, harden your soul, Launch yourself gladly into death’s hungry maw. There is now time for peace, no respite, no forgiveness, There is only war.
