Divine Music!

Language: English

Divine Music!
Daughter of the Soul of Love

Vase of bitterness and of

Dream of the human heart, fruit
of sorrow

Flower of joy, fragrance and
bloom of feeling

Tongue of lovers, revealer of

Mother of the tears of hidden love

Inspirer of poets, composers,

Unity of thoughts within fragments
of words

Designer of love out of beauty
Wine of the exulting heart in
a world of dreams

Heartener of warriors, and strengthener
of souls
Ocean of mercy and sea of tenderness

O Music
In your depths we deposit our hearts
and souls
Thou hast taught us to see with our
And hear with our hearts.
