Hail The Mountain King

Hail The Mountain King

“Hail The Mountain King”

Hail the mountain king
Hail the peace he brings
by his blood; this land shall be free.
in the deep down low
lay our lord under stone
in heart of the mountain
in Shadow below

down in caverns deep
where the ancients sleep
where the dragons purr and roam
runs a sacred yearn
and a blackbird that churns
in heart of the mountain
in the Shadow below

under ancient grove
past the old hollow
where the roots of the mountain are found
none but beast would mend
so the king did descend
to heart of the mountain
to Shadow below

not the Golden Horde
hath slain our lord
not the arrow wound in his side
but for that which rests
forever on his breast
in the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below

now the debts repaid
now the glory remade
o’er the peak may the sun and moon shine
for underneath grows a glow
from the sword and the stone
in the heart of the mountain
In shadow below

Hail the mountain king!
Hail the song he sings!
Hail his reign! in Darkness, he shines.
Hail his sword! Hail the stone!
Hail them glistening bones!
in the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below
in the heart of the mountain
in Shadow below
