Prayer for Benzaiten (single)

by Johann Heyss



Benzaiten help me
Benzaiten let me see all the secret issues
and let me feel with my tongue
all the fair of the youth

Benzaiten touch me
Benzaiten bring me today the afield melodies
and bring me with my tambour
all the whispers and shouts

old and Japanese Benzaiten
in this gardenland of the no-time
likely soul of these sounds
young and Japanese Benzaiten
misty goddess of the bright sounds
likely power of these flutes

Benzaiten listen to me
Benzaiten bring me back my job
bring me back my job
bring me back my job
