Established and preserved by blood and prayer
Thrown away with no concern nor care

Christendom, the shining jewel of the Earth
Now suffers from Europe's spiritual dearth

A great jewel formed of the hostile Empire
Its borders marked with many a spire

Much of it torn away by the atheist Marx
The Christian fire in Russia reduced to sparks

The plague of Communism in time spread
The lands Christian legacy officially dead

Complacency and tolerance have done the rest
Such have tarnished the jewel more than Lenin's best

A shame that a jewel made so precious by prayer and blood
Should vanish away like the Earth by the Great Flood
