For Jade and Eliana (Coronation)
Tune: John Doan, “Where William Lies”

August 23, 2004 (A.S. XXXIX)

Hail, hail the King of Western lands
Praise his honor and praise his strength
Know all that he has triumphed here
Winning his crown and winning fame
Jade in glory takes the throne again
Knowing how to lead his folk
Proven king of many seasons
Take you now the crown of oak

Praise, praise the Queen of all the West
Wreathed in roses and crowned in light
Lady of all that’s worthy and
Lady of a land of might
Lead us all in courtly graces
Art and beauty flourish with thee
Eliana, worthy of favor
Bring us forth in glory

Look now ye Western people
See your lord and lady true
Do now honor to them
Lift your voices in praiseful tune
Western hall of heroes might
Land of service and skill and art
Witness now the coronation
Sing them honor with all your hearts.


"Written for Jade and Eliana, on their Coronation as King and Queen of the West at Purgatorio, AS 39." -- Catherine de Gray
