Not sure about the second Churchill speech;

[INTRO]
Dm                   Gm/D
Sanctus Espiritus! Redeem us from our solemn hour.
Dm                   Gm/D      n.c.
Sanctus Espiritus! Insanity is all around us.
(under above text, Winston Churchill)
"I speak to you for the first time as Prime Minister in a solemn hour for the life of our country,
of our empire, of our allies, and, above all, of the cause of Freedom."

(chorus)
Dm                Bb  | F  C/E
Sanctus Espiritus!
Dm       Am       Gm  | Bb A
Sanctus Espiritus!
Dm                Bb  | F  C/E
Sanctus Espiritus!
Bb | | C7 | | Dm | |


[VERSE 1]
Dm
   In my darkest hours,
Am
   I could not foresee
Gm                                     Aaug A7
   That the tide could turn so fast to this degree.
Dm
   Can't believe my eyes,
Am
   how can you be so blind?
Gm                      Dm/A    A
   Is the heart of stone     no empathy inside?


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
Bb
   Time keeps on slipping away
Dm
   and we haven't learned.
A7
   So in the end, now
       Bb
   what  have we gained?


[CHORUS 1]
Dm                   Bb               F      C/E
Sanctus Espiritus! Redeem us from our solemn hour.
Dm       Am          Gm        Bb   A
Sanctus Espiritus! Insanity is all around us.
Dm                    Bb           F
Sanctus Espiritus! Is this what we deserve,
    C/E      Bb        C                         Dm
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?


[VERSE 2]
Dm
   Are they themselves to blame,
Am
   the misery, the pain?
Gm               Dm/A            C
   Didn't we let go, allowed it, let it grow?
Dm
   If we can't restrain
Am
   the beast which dwells inside,
Gm
   it will find its way
Dm/A        A
   somehow, somewhere in time


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
Bb
   Will we remember all
Dm
   of the suffering?
A
  'Cause if we fail
     Bb
   it  will be in vain.


[CHORUS 2]
Dm                   Bb               F      C/E
Sanctus Espiritus! Redeem us from our solemn hour.
Dm       Am          Gm        Bb   A
Sanctus Espiritus! Insanity is all around us.
Dm                    Bb           F
Sanctus Espiritus! Is this what we deserve,
    C/E      Bb        C                         Bb
Can we break free from chains of never-ending agony?

Dm
Sanctus Espiritus

("A tremendous battle is raging in France and Flanders.)

Dm
Sanctus      Espiritus
       The Germans, by a remarkable combination of air bombing and heavily armoured tanks,

Dm
have broken through the French defenses north of the Maginot Line,
                            Bb                                      Am
and strong columns of their armoured vehicles are ravaging the open country,
C                   Bb                               C
which for the first day or two was without defenders.
                           Bb                                              A
They have penetrated deeply and spread alarm and confusion in their track."
