Virtue Never Falter
Lyrics by Andre Tcherepnine. The tune is Riu Riu Chiu youtube version
Here is a guide for the tune, but please do listen to the recording as well. The triangles denote places where the tune groups three quavers (and gives it the bounce that you hear on the recording). The crotchets with x heads are three clapped beats.
Chorus: See the Way before you Your path never alter Be you ever loyal Virtue never falter (repeat last 2 lines)
In the Revelation was the Way discovered By the Scions' work was the Labyrinth uncovered From the Distant Shores came the proof of our birthright Signs of Seven Virtues seen as clear as daylight
On the Winds of Virtue was this finding carried Brought to all the people of the Nations varied When the Empress rose so did the Way of Virtue Founded was the Synod ever faithful and true
Heed the Pride of ages your soul will be commended Vigilance and Courage will keep you well defended Prosperous and Wise is the way that's never fallow Loyal and Ambitious the soul that's ever hallowed
