For Orlando

Awake, you ancestors and mighty dead!
Awake, throw open the doors to your halls!

New souls come to join you
Souls who died in lead and blood
There are new ancestors among you

Awake, you ancestors and mighty dead!
Awake, throw open the doors to your halls!

Light your hearth-fires
Light your lanterns
Show the new ancestors the way home

Awake, you ancestors and mighty dead!
Awake, throw open the doors to your halls!

Send out the banshees, the black dogs
Send out the skeleton horses and the reapers
Do not let them be lost in the dark

Awake, you ancestors and mighty dead!
Awake, throw open the doors to your halls!
There are new ancestors among you
Make them welcome
Bring them home

Remember the names of the dead.
