The Dragon-sword is arisen at last
Re-forged in the flame and light of old.
Winged in the hand of its bearer it rises;
Through death and life and death again he lives.
The stars in the earth are freed at last
And their Guardian arisen in light.
The war is begun; the war shall now be won!
Through death and life and death again earth lives!
Long has the challenge of Nightmare reigned;
Now we answer it with the sword unsheathed!
This war, thought lost, shall be won, though fierce indeed
And fire proceeds to predestined throne!
The flame and whip of the Shadow’s pit
Has been defeated; it has met its match
And been found no match for the flame of the earth
The light and flame of the Dragon-sword!
The fire of darkness is overcome
By the fire of light in the darkness’ depth
And the whip of Nightmare by the Dragon-sword:
Triumph proceeds to predestined throne!
