The most Ancient Gods,
Prototypes of all the Gods,
Worshiped before humanity;
And all came from one source.

The source is called Mlandoth,
All Gods are manifestations of Him.

Ngyr-Khorath, the mad and monstrous thing
Whom haunts this region of space
Before the solar system was formed,
Is a local eddy of Mlandoth's Race.

Yidhra, who was born with the life of Earth
Intertwining with all Earthly life-forms,
Teaches reverence for Mlandoth.

Before death was born, She was born;
For untold ages there was life without death,
Life without birth, life unchanging.

But at last death came; birth came;
Life became mortal and mutable,
And thereafter fathers died,
Sons were born, and never the same.

The slime became the worm
And the worm the serpent,
The serpent the yeti of the mountains
And the yeti became man.

Only She escaped death,
Escaped birth.
But She could not escape change,
For all things will change;
The trees of the North must shed their leaves.

She learned to devour the mortal creatures;
From their seed to change Herself,
And to be as all mortal things,
Living forever without birth, without death.
