Lover Spirit, Intuition: A Song for Sending the Directions
New lyrics by Amanda Udis-Kessler. Copyright 2021
Lover Spirit, intuition in the center of our souls,
Thank you for your sacred presence. All are one and all are whole.
Lover Spirit, now departing, bless us ever as we dwell.
With the drum and with the cauldron, from the source we bid farewell.
Sister Water, ever flowing, ocean, river, pond and rain,
Thank you for your sacred presence, stream to bathe the growing grain.
Sister Water, now departing, bless us ever as we dwell.
With the cup, the holy chalice, from the west we bid farewell.
Brother Fire, great transformer, share the passion of the sun.
Thank you for your sacred presence, heat unleashed and life begun.
Brother Fire, now departing, bless us ever as we dwell.
With the wand, directing power, from the south we bid farewell.
Father Air, your inspiration holds together all that lives.
Thank you for your sacred presence, howling gust and silent wind.
Father Air, you now depart us. Bless us ever as we dwell.
With the blade as sharp as morning, from the east we bid farewell.
Mother Earth, beloved garden, living treasure underfoot,
Thank you for your sacred presence, rock and crystal, nut and fruit
Mother Earth, you now depart us. Bless us ever as we dwell.
With the pendant, deep as midnight, from the north we bid farewell.
