Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!

Come now Fyrdmen of the Heartland.
Will you stand beside the King when,
He goes off to war in far lands?
Your seax and spear make ready!

Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!

Huscarl, ever at the King's side,
A wall of steel your axe does provide.
From your liege to turn the war-tide,
No foe will stand before you.

Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!

From the forests come brave yeoman,
Swift you'll draw their bows of yew, then
Every shaft will find a foeman.
No doubt you are the King's men!

Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!

Knights in fealty bound to your King,
It's not glory makes your heart sing.
Without your oath, renown means nothing.
Your duty stands before you!

Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!

The armored might of Calontir stands,
Voices raised - a single war band.
To join the King and fight for our land,
Come take your place beside me.

Oro! Hear the war horns sounding!
Oro! For the King is calling,
Oro! See the Falcon flying!
To war brave Calon warriors!
