Hymn of Devotion

Written, yet again, for the Moon Goddess of the Elves by one of her faithful clerics. Enjoy.

Hymn of Devotion

I see why they say your beauty is blinding
I see why they say your favor is binding
I see why they say your grace cannot be paralleled
I see why they say the world turns gray with love withheld

Goddess born on high, hear my voice, know my mind
Here so far below, let my needs, still be known
Goddess who lives on high, see the plight of my kind
Here so far below, let our trials still be known

I see why they say your touch is compelling
I see why they say your gaze is so telling
I see why they say your heart shines with purity
I see why they say the world wants your surety

Goddess born on high, should your gaze wander by
Here so far below, let me shine, and be known
Goddess who lives on high, see the might of our kind
Here so far below, let our triumphs still be known

We belong to you surely completely
We belong to you proudly and neatly
We belong to you when all others turn away
We belong to you even without the day

See the moon that you have hung in our sky?
See the way we pray before your silver eye?
See the way we fall upon our knees in worship too?
And our hearts lay bare in all the works we do for you?

Goddess born on high, we are yours for all of time
Here so far below, let our lives make it so
Goddess who lives on high, see devotion from our kind
Here so far below, we will reap the seeds you sew

      2. That’s exactly what I was hoping people would be able to do, to change a few things in one of the songs and have it fit for their world/circumstances. Well adapted, Sir. šŸ™‚
