The Oath of Sibaud
We raise our arms to the heavens,
for this is the land where our forebears
swore faithfulness to God,
and swore to raise memorials
where for God’s sake they died.
Sovereign of Sinai, Sovereign of Israel,
God of the saints, of the patriarchs,
as you saved these you have saved us, too.
In the land of our forebears
never let us abandon our faith--
struggle with us who fight for you.
With this oath may Heaven bless our forebears,
and in this hour may God bless us again.
Hands joined together, Waldensians, let us repeat--
I swear, my God, to live and die for you.
