Queen of Heaven

by Brian Francis

Asherah long has your name been bound
Josiah’s rage defiled you, hid you in the dust
Unknown yet still they pray to you for gifts
Your name still hidden your power yet given

Asherah, Mother of all things seen from the heavens
Blesser of woman and the fertile seasons of love
Wife of devotion and protection of Him who is
Mother of creation’s toil, witness to the light

Asherah, Lady of the seas to some, also lost
Progenitor of all that is and too of all that isn’t
Drawn from the memories of stone we find you
On shards your name rings among the highest

Asherah we when in passions embrace worship you
And strive to be worthy of your gifts for life
Asherah I call out your name to witness your beauty
To one day hold your gift and honoring you raise it up
