Not to Us, O Lord, the Glory

A musical interlude to brighten a dark day of remembrance.

Latin
Non nobis, Domine, non nobis,
sed nomini tuo da gloriam.

English
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,
but to thy name give the glory.

It is a crusader’s hymn. Let us recall against whom the Crusades were fought, and in what good cause (for they were, perhaps, the only truly just wars in all history) yet recollect with sorrow that the disunion of the Christian princes and powers at home allowed the Holy Land to slip back into Mohammedan hands, and soon all of the Eastern Empire as well. Everything that now weeps under the merciless crescent of the pitiless God of Submission once was governed by the cross of merciful Christ, and instead of the wail of the prayer-call, even the Libyan and Egyptian air rejoiced with church-bells.

Remember 9/11.

Remember who the enemy is, and who supports, defends, and cheers that enemy, while heaping scorn and scathing hate on those who name him what he is.

Christian saints can loose all battles, but we can never lose the war.

Against the crooked men at home and the crooked swords of Asia, loosen your longswords in their scabbards, and raise the sign in which we conquer. DEUS VULT!

Saint James the Moor Slayer

O St. James, Apostle of Christ, defend us in battle lest we perish in a great judgment with the Saracens!
