                               Hark, O'Nightspirit
                              Father of my dark self
                     From within this realm, wherein Thou dwelleth
                   By this lake of blood, from which we feed to breed
                    I call silently for Thy presence, as I lay this oath

                            May this night carry my will
                 And may these old mountains forever remember this night
                          May the forest whisper my name
               And may the storm bring these words to the end of all worlds

                         May the wise moon be my witness
                             As I swear on my honour
                       In respect of my pride and darkness itself
                       That I shall rule by the blackest wisdom

                                 O'Nightspirit
                               I am one with thee
                              I am the eternal power
                               I am the Emperor

                         Winds and storms, embrace us now
                            Lay waste the light of day
                            Open gates to darker lands
                         We spread our wings and fly away
