Priest’s Vigil

Oh! king of the starry night,
Thou crouched lion
Shake thou thy star-filled mane
And guide great Pharaoh
Adrift in his star boat
To the shoreless sea
Set his soul toward the regions of light
Let him veer not
Open wide they jaws and let thy thunder
Startle the stars that they map well
The charted path
While dark Egypt sleeps below
And speed Pharaoh on his way
