Beauty of Dawn

Beauty of Dawn, end credits song from Elder Scrolls Online. Absolutely beautiful!

“Beauty of Dawn” refers the land of Tamriel itself, as well as the souls reclaimed from Coldharbour allowing the dead to rest in Tamriel’s ground. “Tamriel” translates to “Dawn’s Beauty” in the Aldmeri language.
“Days and nights of venom and blood” is a phrase that can be found in the collectible book, “Brief History of the Empire, Book I”, referencing the turmoil before the founding of the Empire. The book can be found in previous TES games, including Skyrim.
The song reflects the struggle of men and mer against the machinations of Molag Bal during the Three Banners War in 2E 582.

“Inspired by the lore of The Elder Scrolls Online, composer and singer Malukah created “The Beauty of Dawn.” She performs it in this video, accompanied by footage from the game.”

Beauty of Dawn
Written and composed by Malukah

A serpent lights the ancient sky
A threat of tainted stars
Evil stirs and in its wake
The souls of mortals sway

Sorrow reigns
Over fields of red
Spirits pace
Through the shadows cast by their graves

These are days and nights of venom and blood
Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn

Darkness strikes to blind the strong
But Faith will guide our swords
Loyal hearts we’ll stand as one
And fight with shields of Hope

Pride fuels the deadly fire
That devours our tower of gold
The drums of war will rage and roar
‘Til the sun burns bright once more

These are days and nights of venom and blood
Heroes will rise as the anchors fall
Brave the strife, reclaim every soul
That belongs to the Beauty of Dawn
