lyrics

Song of Mari
(Anderson/Knight/Winter)

She comes at the first scent of morning
As sweet as the breath of the sea
Till the cock of the sun cries his warning
She will walk in the garden with me

Her kisses so wild yet so tender
Shall make of my body a flame
No cloud shall obscure her bright splendor
No veil and no garment of shame

Though mortals deny and deride me
Till love must rise up and depart
In a dread secret place she will hide me
Sealed up with the blood of my heart

For she is our Lady of twilight
Our comfort in life’s darkest hour
I see in the heavens of midnight
Her shield of omnipotent power

She comes at the first hint of morning
Her feet on the crests of the sea
Till the cock of the sun cries his warning
She will lie in the garden with me
