Therion - Nocturnal Light Lyrics



Nocturnal light – ah

Goddess Inanna, the beauty of Venus, you travel our minds and the sky
Ruler of heavens, on ground of Eanna be praised!
Mighty Inanna, the spirit of warfare, to Babylon open your gate
Fruits of your wisdom – seeds will bring birth to this day

Where there was nothing, kingdom of the void
Threshold to forever awaits and will unfold

Nocturnal light – dark empress keep
It flowing through your secret womb
Nocturnal light – bury the ashes of time
Where the angels in silence divine
Face the dawn, so nocturnal and bright

Down to your sister Ereshkigals kingdom, the netherworld, you now descend
Gates there are seven and stripped of your power you dwell
Saved by your husband with sister beside him, they will now be taking your place
Granting you freedom, sharing the months of the year

Nocturnal light – dark empress keep
It flowing through your secret womb
Nocturnal light – bury the ashes of time
Where the angels in silence divine
Face the dawn, so nocturnal and bright

Deep in the darkness, your husband Dumuzi, the God of what flourish above
Now all in his absence has turned into winter and summer will mark his return

Nocturnal light!

Nocturnal light – dark empress keep
It flowing through your secret womb
Nocturnal light – bring back your time
The fall of night – Inanna rise!
Nocturnal light – flow from your lust to the seas

Of every man –
Inanna rise!
