Hoof and Horn

(Ian Corrigan)

Hoof and Horn, Hoof and horn,
All that die shall be reborn

Vine and grain, vine and grain,
All that fall shall rise again!

Lord and Lady, hoof and horn,
Light revealed, be reborn:

Fire, Water, Air and Earth;
Hunter, hunted, soul’s rebirth!

Mother Earth, Mother Earth,
We call on She who gave us birth;

We are Yours, blood and bone,
Kin to tree and standing stone!

She is luminous, She is bright,
She is shining, crowned with light!

He is radiant, He is bright,
He is rising, He takes flight!

Crone and Sage, Crone and Sage,
Wisdom is the gift of age.

Sage and Crone, Sage and Crone,
Wisdom’s truth shall be our own!

NOTES

“Luminous” can be tricky so watch out for that one. I stumble on it.

Sometimes only a few verses are sung, sometimes the whole thing.  It can be sung as counterpart to “We all Come from the Goddess.”

Interwoven with others:

 

Crone and Sage

Crone and Sage, Crone and Sage
Wisdom is the gift of age
Sage and Crone, Sage and Crone
Wisdom’s gift shall be our own

OR

Sage and Crone, Sage and Crone
Wisdom’s gift shall be our own
Crone and Sage, Crone and Sage
Wisdom is the gift of age

NOTES:

It comes out of the longer “Hoof and Horn” by Ian Corrigan. Can be sung as a counterpoint to “We All Come from the Goddess” or in other interwoven arrangements.

Though not on this, it can fit into it:

Divine or Diety Cards 4″ x 6″

Unitarian Universalists believe that each person is free to search for their own personal truth on issues —  such as the existence, nature, and meaning of life, deities, creation, and afterlife.  Our shared covenant is found within the 7 Principles and the 6 sources of our living tradition.

Children need different kinds of support at different times as they navigate the stages of faith development. Some of James Fowler’s work may be helpful to read:

As a child’s first religious education teacher, a parent sometimes needs some help or tools to get the conversations started.

DIVINE OR DIETY CARDS

Toward that end, I made various simple Divine or Diety cards in 4″ x 6″ that can be printed and slipped into dollar store or craft store picture frames for ritual play or group ritual.

What Should We Do For Our Lord And Lady?

Song: What Should We Do For Our Lord And Lady?
Artist: Moonstruck
Album: Witch of the Wildwoods
Year: 1999

What should we do for our Lord and Lady?
What should we do for ourselves right now?
What should we do for our Lord and Lady
In our wiccan circle?

Let us shout and sing their praises
We’re going to sing and dance around
Let us show we are their children
We are wiccans, one and all

Look in the sky and see our Father
Look at the sun and see our Lord
Look in the sky and see our Father
In His heavenly glory

We thank the earth, for She is our Mother
She is where we all come from
The Goddess in Her threefold beauty
May we praise Her forever.

Look all around you in the circle
We are one with the universe
Love everybody, brothers and sisters
We are children of the Gods

For The Love Of All Who Gather

Published on Jul 15, 2010

Song: For The Love Of All Who Gather
Artist: S. J. Tucker
Album: Blessings

 

With but a single breath
To clear the way
I honor all
Who listen as I play

I honor Freya
Brigid, Cerridwen
I honor every goddess
In my way

I honor Sairyss, Fafnir
Naelyon, Grael
I honor all my friends
Of wing and tail

I honor earth and flame
Rain and wind
For love of all who gather
Let the song begin
