Beyond the doors of this temple
Resides the sword of evil's bane.
In the hands of a wielder of Courage
Can it overthrow evil's reign.
In order to do that, the wielder must
Awaken the sages that sleep
Within the hearts of five temples
Where evil has made its keep.
Within the forest of your home
Rests a friend of your past.
You will meet her again, only once,
But the meeting will not last.
In the pits of a fiery volcano
Struggles your Brother of old.
You will find him in peril,
Then you'll face dangers untold.
Deep in the heart of the lakebed,
Your fiance awaits you.
She will show you the way to Morpha,
But after she'll be forced to reject you.
In a desert oasis resides a thief,
Waiting for you to arrive.
After you conquer two witches combined,
She will expect your good-bye.
Beneath a graveyard of royal line,
A brutal monster sulks in its lair.
Defeat this beast and you will meet
The guardian of your princess fair.
In this temple where you found the sword
Will be a friend you have not seen in years.
She will then remove her disguise
And relinquish many of your fears.
Unfortunately, your quest hasn't ended.
It has only just begun
I fear that Ganondorf will be the victor,
And the day will not be won.
Have strength, young hero, as you go forth
And throw down the evil of yore.
If you defeat him, good will triumph,
And that should settle the score.
