Simon De Montfort

Simon De Montfort

At the battle of Muret

He slew the traitor flock,

Then again at Toulouse

He did well to take the cross,

At divers places throughout,

He used what tools he had,

Hacking down those lazy louts,

His sword was for Maria,

All good works do come from Her,

He sang the Culpa Mea

Before the battle ramparts,

By fighting he did save us

From pain in many ways,

The sword of justice stung,

Now others live their days,

Before the battle walls,

The men did shout and cheer,

‘Come, Holy Spirit,’ rang in thieving ears,

Many were there who did take up the task,

Battling daily to slay the basilisk!
