1. A spirit so fair

Above the River you fly slowly
Never resting, not even in fear or despair
The answering voices, howling lowly
To your hopeful spirit so fair
The depths and terrors you have seen
Even when the Light still shone
Buried under ashes, that's what you have been
Solitude and painful sin- but no eternal harm is done

Above the Mountains you sing freely
Neverending, no fear or despair
But haunting voices, never reaching you really
Try to poison your spirit so fair
The depths and terrors you have seen
Even when the Light still shone
Covered by ashes, that's what you have been
Agony and fears and cries- but no eternal harm is done

Above the Sea your spirit breathes
Laughter and joy, no fear or despair
The evil voices... their echo, it ceases
No longer grasping your spirit so fair
The depths and terrors you have seen
Even when the Light still shone
Buried under ashes, that's what you have been
Ere forgetfulness over eternal harm had won
