The Sun Is Gonna Rise

(Bill Miller)

There’s no reason
For fighting this way
There’s no rhyme in the
Words that we say

The sun is gonna rise
The sun is gonna rise again
The sun is gonna rise
The sun is gonna rise again

There’s no beauty
In thoughts that betray
There’s no peace
When your life’s gone astray

Good and evil
Fighting for your soul
We are children
Standing in the coldest night

Here Comes the Sun

(Beatles)

[Intro]
Here comes the sun (doo doo doo doo)
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

[Verse 1]
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

[Verse 2]
Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It’s all right

[Bridge]
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

On Midwinter’s Day

(Damh The Bard)

Now that Samhain is over,
And the Sidhe have returned to their home,
The dead have followed the Raven’s song,
And no longer among us they roam.

The wisdom of our ancient past,
Show us how to ride the storm,
For their tombs they swallow the rising sun,
And the Mabon is always reborn. Reborn….Oh!

(Chorus)
So come all you people, come and sing with me,
Join our voices, and sing the long nights away,
All over the land, a chorus of voices will sing,
For the rising Sun on Midwinter’s Day…. on Midwinter’s Day

The land may be barren and lifeless,
The ground may be frozen and hard,
And the rain that fell has now turned to ice,
The Winter is showing her card,

But now the Sun king has rested,
And his eyes have turned to the Earth,
For three days the Sun has been still in the sky,
But the time has now come for his birth. His birth…Oh!

So come all you people, come and sing with me,
Join our voices, and sing the long nights away,
All over the land, a chorus of voices will sing,
For the rising Sun on Midwinter’s Day…. on Midwinter’s Day

Some say Jesus was born today,
Some say he is the Mabon,
Some say that he is the Son of God,
While others the Son of the Sun,

Some they listen in the woodland,
For the call of Herne,
While others they hear the clash of swords,
For the Oak King will return! Return… oh!

So come all you people, come and sing with me,
Join our voices, and sing the long nights away,
All over the land, a chorus of voices will sing,
For the rising Sun on Midwinter’s Day…. on Midwinter’s Day

So come all you people, come and sing with me,
Join our voices, and sing the long nights away,
All over the land, a chorus of voices will sing,
For the rising Sun on Midwinter’s Day…. on Midwinter’s Day

Hail the Holly King

(by Inkubus Sukkubus)

All across the virgin snow
And through the naked trees
On a cold winter’s night
His song is on the breeze

Where the moonlight paints the frost
Upon the robin’s song
He’s come a-calling for us all
Now the summer’s gone!

Hark! Hear the children sing
Glory to the Holly King

In the whisky and in the wine
He is here this Yule-tide time
A-dancing in the home-fire flames
A-dancing, singing, playing games
When the prayers are to the East
He is with us at the feast
His crown is nailed to the door
He’s with us forevermore!

Hark! Hear the children sing
Glory to the Holly King
Let the jingle bells all ring
Hail, hail the Holly King

Underneath the mistletoe
He is in all lover’s hearts
He fans the flames of desire
‘Tis he who fires Cupid’s darts
He is in all children’s dreams
Dressed in red or dressed in green
Riding on the astral sleigh
He’s the spririt of the day!

Hark! Hear the children sing
Glory to the Holly King
Let the jingle bells all ring
Hail, hail the Holly King

Hark! Hear the children sing
Glory to the Holly King
Let the jingle bells all ring
Hail, hail the Holly King

Hark! Now hear the children sing
Glory to the Holly King
Let the jingle bells all ring
Hail, hail the Holly King

Santa Claus is Pagan Too

(Emerald Rose)

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

He’s got that Buddha belly
And his Pops the Holly King
You’ve dressed him in that British Coat
The caps a Nordic thing

You took the horns right off his head
And stuck them on his deer
But he still flies high like Jupiter
With a belly full of beer

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Now history says Christ was likely
Not a Capricorn
But if you want to share our Yule
We don’t care when he’s born

Come celebrate the dawning
Of the sun king’s bright rebirth
And if you practice what you preach
We’ll all have peace on earth

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Now, Santa’s way more jolly
Than most Christians would require
And if he weren’t so busy
He’d be dancing ’round this fire

Yeah, you can call it Christmas
You’ve got us way outgunned
But just you wait ’til Beltaine
Then we’ll see who’s havin’ fun!

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

Hey, Santa Claus is Pagan too
Just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch
He’ll bring you all the best

So get that star up on the roof
And bake those cookies too
Cause Christmas time is really Yule
And Santa’s Pagan too

We Are the Mash Up

We are the Flow

We are the flow, we are the ebb
We are the weavers, we are the web
We are the flow, we are the ebb
We are the witches, back from the dead

(Shekhinah Mountainwater)

Spiraling Into the Center

Spiraling into the center
The center of our soul
Spiraling into the center
The center of our soul

We are the weavers, we are the woven ones
We are the dreamers, we are the dream
We are the weavers, we are the woven ones
We are the dreamers, we are the dream

( Shekhinah Mountainwater or Lorna Kohler)
