The Shadow of the Vale

The Shadow Of The Vale
Prince, Potentate, Divinity,
Thou, of the Lower Trinity,
Receive our liege to thee our Lord
That thou may know and they reward
Who serve thee in the realms of Earth,
Receive, O King, we at our worth.
O Master of All Mysteries,
O Molder of All Histories,
Receive from us upon the fen
These bodies that were once of men
But now whose forms are those diverse;
Receive, O Lord, deign to converse
With us who make our homage known
About thy shadowed Sabbat throne.
Receive and make thy presence clear
In symbol show, that all may hear
And know the Power of the Night
O trusted servant of God’s might.
