Chim-el Adabal: A Ballad
A poem surrounding the creation of the Chim-el Adabal

When Akatosh slew Lorkhan,

He ripped his heart right out,

Hurled it across Tamriel,

And the heart was heard to shout:

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

The heart and soul of Men.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

Protect us till the end.

The laughing heart sprayed blood afar,

A gout on Cyrod fell,

And like a dart shot to its mark

Down in an Ayleid Well.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

The heart and soul of Men.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

Protect us till the end.

Magicka fused the Lorkhan blood

To crystal red and strong

Then Wild Elves cut and polished it down

To Chim-el Adabal.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

The heart and soul of Men.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

Protect us till the end.

When Elves lost Nirn to Man,

Akatosh gave the stone

To Saint Alesh in token of

Her right to sit the throne.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

The heart and soul of Men.

Red Diamond! Red Diamond!

Protect us till the end.
