Oath

I make this solemn oath today
That from your side
I will not stray
My sword is yours and I obey
And I will never sway

Oh little child within my care
You’ll sleep content
Know I am there
They will not harm a single hair
While I am waiting there

A king is first a babe in arms
I’ll watch the night
Keep you from harm
You never need to feel alarm
From warlocks and their charms

This oath I give without regret
I’m sworn to you
I won’t forget
And even if such traps they set
We will defeat them yet
We will defeat them yet
