Hear our hymn, O Goddess,
Rich in wealth and wisdom,
Ever young yet ancient,
True to Law Eternal.

Wak’ner of the songbirds,
Ensign of the Eternal,
Draw thou near, O Fair One
In thy radiant Chariot.

Bring to her your off'ring;
Humbly bow before her:
Raise your songs of welcome
As she comes in splendour.
