The Verion Hymn in a piece of music closely related to the House of Verion, it is the national anthem of Gran Verionia, it was also chosen as the national anthem of the Northern Commonwealth in Elwynn, and it previously served as the national anthem of Blackstone. The Hymn is also one of the main songs associated with the Verionist political movement.
The Hymn tells the story of Elu Verion, the mythical founder of the House of Verion. Its origins are unknown, but the song is older than the 14th century AN, and probably dates from the time of the Elfinshi rebellions against the southern Elwynnese invaders.
In ancient times, in deep Elfinshi forests
our noble race has proudly sung this chorus:
and praised the deeds of Elu, prince of princes,
who once our people ruled and ever since is
The father of the House we represent.
Both whom remain, and those who onward went.
From Ice and Fire, to stone and swamp we laboured
we strove and fought, with pride and faith enarmoured.
We reached the heights of worldly recognition,
but through this all, our House’s only mission
was to endure and witness to the name
Of Verion’s first, of Elu and his fame.
With spear or axe, or sword or magic prowess,
our father stood, defending to allow us
to live in peace, to built, to grow, to strengthen
the splendid hour of Verion glory lengthen.
And, come the night of trouble to our line,
through thickest clouds, the star of Verion shines.
