Heart of the Griffin

Heart of the Griffin

by Joya bint Arwa al-Jinniyya

 

Chorus:   The heart of the griffin is ten thousand strong

an army of kinsmen, one voice raised in song

we cry "long live Northshield!" wherever we roam

the heart of the griffin, forever our home

 

The blood of the northland burns bright in our veins

its fire keeps us warm on the coldest of plains

we raise high the banners of sable and gold

to welcome all into our kingdom’s great hold

 

Each deed laid with care in the floor of this hall

to build a foundation of service to all

from humble beginnings we spring and return

a heritage fit for our children to learn

 

These four walls were raised with the traits we embrace

the first stands for honor, the second for grace

the third is for courage, where we take our stand

the last, to keep laughter and joy close at hand

 

When thunder and lightning consume the night sky

the wind howls above and the waters rise high

a blanket of shields blossoms up from the clay

our crown of all colors keeps darkness at bay

 

Our borders are not what define who we are

at home in our hearts though we travel afar

so raise high the banners of sable and gold

and be one of Northshield, the griffin, the bold!

 

(After final Chorus)

we cry "long live Northshield!" wherever we roam

the heart of the griffin, forever our home
