To Hades

To Hades
by Hearthstone

Mighty Hades, dweller in the depths, I honor you.
The world was divided, one brother took the sky,
another the sea, and to you was given
the underworld, where all who live will someday rest.
Kindly one, you welcome the dead at journey’s end
as in your land they resume a life after life.
Golden-haired Persephone you chose for your bride,
to be your wife and your queen, and to share your throne.
As you rule under the earth, yours are its riches.
All the wealth of the earth is yours, O great Hades,
bright gold and precious gems, all are within your realm.
Hades, O revered one, I praise and honor you.
