    About

    The story of the 189 brave soldiers in the Swiss Guard during the sacking of Rome in 1527. Since Charles V, ruler of the Holy Roman Empire couldn't pay his troops they mutinied and forced their commander to lead them towards Rome where plunder was plentiful. When the invading force entered the Vatican pope Clement VII escaped to Castel Sant'Angelo via Passetto Di Borgo. The few remaining guardsmen gave their lives on the steps to St. Peters Basilica.

    Lyrics

    In the heart of Holy See
    In the home of Christianity
    The seat of power is in danger

    There's a foe of a thousand swords
    They've been abandoned by their lords
    Their fall from grace will pave their path to damnation

    Then the 189
    In the service of heaven
    They're protecting the holy line
    It was 1527 gave their lives on the steps to heaven
    Thy will be done

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    For the home of the holy
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Gave their lives so boldly

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    In the name of his glory
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Come and tell their story again

    Under guard of 42
    Along a secret avenue
    Castel Saint'Angelo is waiting

    They're the guards of the Holy See
    They're the guards of Christianity
    Their path to history is paved with salvation

    Then the 189
    In the service of heaven
    They're protecting the holy line
    It was 1527 gave their lives on the steps to heaven
    Thy will be done

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    For the home of the holy
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Gave their lives so boldly

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    In the name of his glory
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Come and tell their story again

    Dying for salvation with dedication
    No capitulation annihilation
    Papal commendation reincarnation
    Heaven is your destination [X2]

    In the name of God

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    For the home of the holy
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Gave their lives so boldly

    For the grace for the might of our lord
    In the name of his glory
    For the faith for the way of the sword
    Come and tell their story
    Gave their lives so boldly
    Come and tell the Swiss Guards' story again
