Hymn To The Sun - Poem by Pete Crowther

All hail to the Sun at the dawn
Rejoice at his birth in the east,
Be ready to stand on the shore
Each morning to see that sublime
Sacramental ascent from the sea.
Give praise to the Ancient of Days,
The giver of light and of warmth,
Imperial ruler of Earth
And all of her planetary kin.
We bathe in his brightness and glory,
Give honour and reverence to Him.
His names are both splendid and legion,
Adonis, Sol, Helios and Ra,
Apollo and Titan and Phoebus,
He is both our Father and Star.
