Heirs of the Western Lands
Tune “Lobe den Herren”, 1665 (“Praise to the Lord, the Almighty”, 1680)
by
Catherine de Gray
June 12, 2004 (A.S. XXXIX)

Heirs of the Western lands, look now, your reign is before you
Given into your hands, now hear your people call to you
Honour to you! Blessings on all you will do!
Gather your strength for your new rule.

Soon you will come to the thrones; soon you’ll take on the glory
Of ruling your kingdom, the first, home of legend and story
Honour to you! Blessings on all you will do!
See now the riches before you.

Rule this land fairly with honour, with grace and with justice
Bearing in mind that your actions will reflect upon us
Honour to you! Blessings on all you will do!
Give us the gift of your service.

Now honour Jade, our Crown Prince, our future defender
And to Eliana, our Princess, our lady of splendor
Honour to you! Blessings on all you will do!
See now your bright Western treasure.

Yes, honour to you! Blessings on all you will do!
Honour to you beyond measure!


"Performed for their Royal Highnesses, Jade and Eliana, at June Crown A.S. 39." -- Catherine de Gray
