The Goddess Sword can be obtained at the Goddess Statue in Skyloft. It is the second sword you receive in the game.
You will be able to upgrade your Goddess Sword to the Goddess Longsword by using Farore's Flame. The sword will appear longer and the damage you deal is doubled.
Note that the Goddess Sword can only be upgraded once you have finished the Ancient Cistern dungeon.
After completing the Sandship, you can upgrade your Goddess Longsword to the Goddess White Sword using Nayru's Flame. This upgrade allows you to dowse 7 targets.
After completing the Fire Sanctuary, you can use Din's Flame to upgrade the Goddess White Sword to the Master Sword. This upgrade allows the Master Sword to achieve its true form and has the power to annihilate evil.
