English term or phrase: song
Does anybody know of an existing and/or official translation of the song "The Son of God goes forth to war"?

I'm looking for the following two parts:

The Son of God goes forth to war
A kingly crown to gain
His bloodred banner streams afar
Who follows in his train?

A glorious band, the chosen few
On whom the Spirit came
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they knew
And mocked the cross and flame.
They met the tyrant's brandished steel
The lion's gory mane.
They bowed their heads the death to feel
Who follows in their train?
