Hymn to Apollo

April 6th, 2008

Hail Apollo, Lord of Light
Blessed are you among gods
Not Lord of Light alone
But of Dark, Sun and Moon
Lord of Music, Lord of Dance
The Muses are your faithful companions
And generous daughters
Your mighty steeds paw the rim of the sky
As clouds and winds pass stately by
Lord of Harmonics, sound is no stranger
Hermes knew you best when
The Lyre became your favoured medium
Happy and Warm
You can also be Cold and Deathless
Lord of Extremes, Lord of Comfort
Lady Iris dances sweetly by your open door
Lord of Golden Light
Lord of Crimson Night
We pray to you to hasten the Sun
And awaken the Muse within

—Rev. Lady Bella Sundancer
