Pharaoh's Court

Eyes, eyes, burning eyes
Rimmed of blood so red
Cast about the wicked night,
Blossoms to behead!

Hands, hands, scaly hands,
Claws of fiery clay
Pluck the candle from its stand!
Strum infernal lays!

Heart, heart, icy heart
Lurking to the last...
Minion of demonic art,
Mildew, botch and blast

Christ, Christ, risen Christ
Look upon their mind
Fend away the foul device!
Break the chains that bind!
