Song of Lyric
 
by Sharron Minchella

In Lyric's tower the One abides,
but roof and wall can't hold him.
His power is seen on battlefields
and in the hearts of men.

People of the Verses
come worship the One.
He alone is worthy
of hymns and adoration.

Hazor's fires and Rhusican poison
can never overcome us.
For we will trust in the One alone
to come and to deliver.

People of the Verses
come worship the One.
He alone is worthy
of hymns and adoration.

When trouble comes and overwhelms,
we run to your strong tower.
Our arms are raised as the music plays,
the mist of your peace surrounds us.

People of the Verses
come worship the One.
He alone is worthy
of hymns and adoration.

We sing your Verses to remember
the reason for our joy.
For you have once again restored us
and turned us back to you.

People of the Verses
come worship the One.
He alone is worthy
of hymns and adoration.

Strengthen our arms for each new battle,
and equip us with your word.
For we have come to pledge ourselves
the protector of your house.

People of the Verses
come worship the One.
He alone is worthy
of hymns and adoration.

This is an absolutely beautiful song! I think that the words poignantly and elegantly describe the culture of Lyric as well as the struggles that they have overcome through help from the One. I especially appreciate the recurring refrain, as it encourages unification of the people in the One. So much of their culture surrounds uniting together in the joy and knowledge of the One; thus I think that the refrain is a great call to the people to come together and worship the "Unifier" of them all. It is almost like a constant reminder of their purpose in gathering! I love it! I can imagine Linette singing these verses to the guardians to encourage them in bravery for the One. The voices of the guardians would sound so strong and awesome as they repeat the refrain together! Well done!
