Morning Hymn
By Frank S. Gordon
From “Gold in the Desert”
To the Mountain Sisnajinni

HO, yo, ho!
Thou holy White Shell!
The Deathless One—
He sendeth the sun’s first glow,
The sun’s first glow upon Thee,        5
His holy morning glow.
Dawn-maiden’s mountain,
To thee will I go;
Morning-cloud mountain,
To thee will I go;        10
Holy-browed mountain,
To thee will I go.
Blessings there glow upon me—
Thither I go,
Thither, O soul,        15
O-ho, yo, yo!
