To Goddess as Death

(Ceisiwr Serith)

Come Dark Mother.

Come to us!

Out of the night, on owl’s wings.

Come to us!

By the screeching wind.

Come to us!

By the cleansing fire.

Come to us!

By the absorbing water.

Come to us!

By the resting earth.

Come to us!

By the spirit that waits.

Come to us!

Come to your people.

Come to us!

To God as Death

(Ceisiwr Serith)

Come, Stern Lord.

Come to us!

Out of the darkness.

Come to us!

By the tempest wind.

Come to us!

By the devouring fire.

Come to us!

By the overwhelming sea.

Come to us!

By the Opening earth.

Come to us!

By the Spirit that waits.

Come to us!

Come to your people.

Come to us!

We Stand in Your Place, Ancestors

(Ceisiwr Serith)

We stand in your place, Ancestors.
We perform your deeds, Ancestors.
“Do not forget, do not forget” —
Let it be these words, Holy Ones,
that my heart sings in my chest.

Do not forget, do not forget,
to walk in the sacred way.

Do not forget, do not forget,
that all I see is sacred.

Do not forget, do not forget
my sacred duty to the world which surrounds me.

Do not forget, do not forget.
Grant me this gift, you whom I worship, not to forget.

Witch’s Rune

(Song: Witch’s Rune | Artist: S.J.Tucker | Album: Blessings )

Darksome night and shining moon
Balance of the dark and light
Hearken ye our witch’s rune
As we perform our sacred rite

With earth and water, air and fire
By blade and bowl and circle round
We come to you with our desire
Let all that is hidden now be found

With censor, candle, book and sword
And ringing of the altar bell
We tie a knot within our cord
To bind our magic in a spell

Mother of the summer fields
Goddess of the silver moon
Join with us as power builds
Dance with us our witch’s rune

Father of the Summer dew
Hunter of the winter snows
With open arms we welcome you
Dance with us as power grows

Dance with us a witches rune

By all the light of moon and sun
By all the might of land and sea
Chant the rune and it is done
As we will, so mote it be

I Want to Thank You

(Morgan)

I want to thank you
for emptying my cup.
What I didn’t know then that I know right now
is that I’m ready to be filled up.

I want to thank you
for bringing me to this.
What I didn’t know then that I know right now
is that I’m ready to live my bliss.

Ise Oluwa

ISE OLUWA
(Traditional Nigerian chant)

Ise oluwa kole baje o
Ise oluwa kole baje o
Kole baje o kole baje o
Ise oluwa kole baje o

(Translation: “Love will never be destroyed.”)

LISTEN:

I Release and I Let Go

I release, and I let go.
I let Spirit guide my life.
No more struggle, no more strife.
I am only here for love.
I am only here for love.
I am only here for love.

NOTES:

Seems to be a variation on “I Release and I Let Go” (Music and lyrics by Michael Beckwith and Ricky Byars.)

LISTEN:

In This Circle

In this circle, no fear.
In this circle, deep peace.

In this circle, safety.

In this body…
In this family…
In our children…
In this moment…
In this circle…

In the Spirit of the Earth

In the spirit of the earth,
we are coming together.
In the spirit of the earth,
we are one.

In the spirit of the earth,
we are singing and dancing.
In the spirit of the earth,
we are one.
Hear our voices, soaring high,
reaching for the sun.
Hear our footsteps, even and strong.
They will echo through the night.

Inspired

Inspired by the sun,
we’re shining brightly.
We’re learning to live
our lives more lightly.

Inspired by the moon’s
wax and wane,
we’re learning to live in peace
with constant change.

Inspired by the earth,
we’re holding promise.
We’re learning to nurture
the growth within us.
