Child marked by Askari's tears

There's a place for you, I say

Where safety lies and all your fears

Fade like night into day

Follow the sun by day,

Yes my dear it knows the way

Follow the lion that lives in the stars at night,

Yes he'll steer you right

The trees my child are your friends

When sleep calls their branches seek

They'll guard you until the trail ends

This journey is not for the meek

Follow the sun by day,

Yes my dear it knows the way

Follow the lion that lives in the stars at night,

Yes he'll steer you right

Beware others of your kind

Only in those marked can you trust

Those without to your gifts are blind

So keep your distance as you must

Follow the sun by day,

Yes my dear it knows the way,

Follow the lion that lives in the stars at night,

Yes he'll steer you right

When Askari's land you reach

Then my child you may rest

And one day these words you'll teach

To your own to aid their quest
