Deathless Souls Roam Lyrics

5. Deathless Souls Roam (5:57)
Embalmed in echoing songs

I

Wreathed in myrtle, my sword I'll conceal
Like those champions devoted and brave,
When they plunged in the tyrant their steel,
And to Athens deliverance gave.

II

Beloved heroes! Your deathless souls roam
In the joy breathing isles of the blest ;
Where the mighty of old have their home–
Where Achilles and Diomed rest.

III

In fresh myrtle my blade I'll entwine,
Like Harmodius, the gallant and good,
When he made at the tutelar shrine
A liberation of Tyranny's blood.

IV

Ye deliverers of Athens from shame!
Ye avengers of Liberty's wrongs!
Endless ages shall cherish your fame,
Embalmed in their ecoing songs!

Hymn to Aristogeiton and Harmodius
Translation from the Greek by Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849)
