The Song of All is a song featured in the flavor text of Urza's block. Some additions appeared in the Masques block, the Time Spiral block, Masters 25 and Dominaria.

The song is about the wisdom of Serra and her beliefs and worldview. It's expressed through her host of angels. The Song of All is a very lengthy song. It consists of over 1000 cantos of varying length. Singing the whole song would take many days, maybe even as long as a week.[1]

The cantos beyond #1000 are known as Brother Angus's Lament. They were added by Brother Angus after Serra had imparted her wisdom to him before dying.[2][3]
