Language: English

 Myriad voicèd Queen! Enchantress of the air!
 Bride of the life of man!
 For thee with tuneful reed, with string and horn,
 And high-adoring choir, a welcome we prepare!
 In silver-speaking mirrors of desire -
 In joyous ravishment of mystery,
 With heavenly echo of thoughts that dreaming lie,
 Chained in unborn oblivion drear;
 Thy many-hearted grace restore
 Unto our isle, our own to be!
 And make again our Graces three.
