Orion

  Starry belt

Starry night

Glittering knife

Gleaming bright

orion

Your victorious arm raised in triumph

Your foe is conquered;

The beast is slain.

To heaven you lift your hand —

in mockery

or

in praise?

Whose name are you exalting?

Do you salute your King with your light-pricked gesture?

To your King, and to Him alone.

orion

In the sky,

And yet you point Higher still

To a greater victory by a greater Prince.

The foe is conquered;

The beast is slain.

The dragon is bound in chains.
