Whene'er I see the Nascent Moon,
With upturned eyes I sing this Rune,
And bend my knee upon the ground,
And bow my head in thanks profound.
For Thee my praises, Guiding Light,
That Thee I've seen this very night,
That Thee, the Nascent Moon, I've seen,
Thou glorious Guide on whom I lean.
I think on those who've left us, too,
'Tween now and last the Moon was new,
While in the earthly realm I've stayed,
Thou Moon of Moons and Holy Aid.
