W:The thissel cok cryis, W:On lovers wha lyis, W:Now skaillis the skyis, W:The night is near gone. W: W:2 W:All gallant knights, W:Don for the day's fight, W:The breast plate so bright, W:To battle their foes. W:The valiant steed prances, W:And with spirit dances, W:Daylight advances, W:The night is near gone. W: W:3 W:Brave men in field, W:Their stout weapons wield, W:With shining bright shields, W:Like Titans enthroned. W:Strong spears in rests, W:Across chargers crests, W:Are broken on breasts, W:The night is near gone. W: W:4 W:So hard are the hits, W:Some stagger, some sit, W:And some this life quit, W:On the ground while they groan. W:Horsemen so gay, W:On chargers that play, W:With swords make fray, W:The night is near gone. % % % % %
