Lugh

Artist: Kellianna
Song: Lugh
Album: The Ancient Ones

Lugh of the sun, Lugh of the sky
Lugh of the summer days gone be
Lugh of the Harvest, corn and wheat
Lugh of the blazing heat

King of the People, Friend of the Sidhe
Father of Heroes, Son of the Sea
Giver of Vitality, Lord of The Dance is he

Lugh of the long arm, Lugh of skill
Lugh of courage, unbending will
Blacksmith forging the battle spear
Warrior revered

Lugh of lightning, Lugh of the storm
Swift and steady with thunderous roar
Lugh of blackened sky and rain
Power of hurricane

Handsome champion, eternal youth
Fearless leader of strength and truth
Host of games, the field events,
And feasts filled with merriment

Masterful Bard, honey-tongued
Musical Lugh the Shining One
Plucking harp strains of sorcery
Golden poetry

The Horned God

by Kellianna ©2010

Artist: Kellianna
Song: The Horned God
Album: Elemental

Blessed be the Horned God
King of the Wild Hunt
Blessed be the Horned God
around the Beltane Fire

Round and round the Maypole
weaving white and red we go
to celebrate the season and
The Lord and His Lady.

The Horned God guarantees
Strength and Vitality
In Sacred Marriage to his Queen
The Horned God gives his blessing

The Bel fire burning bright
Will blaze far into the night
In sacred grove and moonlight
The King Stag is dancing

We drink a cup of revelry
To Growth and Fertility
Spring has come we’ve planted seeds
The Horned God gives his blessing

At first ray of dawn he
bids farewell to his Queen
The Lord and his Lady
will meet again All Hallows Eve

LISTEN

Male I Am

Male I am, wild I am
Hunter and the beast I am

Verses:

Male I am, Spirit I am
Priest of all the Earth I am

Male I am, Desire I am
Tender sweet and fire I am

Male I am, Harvest I am
Sacrifice and King I am

Male I am, Strength I am
Father, son and provider I am

Male I am, Guardian I am
Warrior and fighter I am

Male I am, Open I am
Baby in her arms I am

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

You are the Peace

(celtic oral tradition – 1st millennium)

You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in dark
You are the heart’s eternal spark
You are the door that’s open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way
You are my Saviour this very day.
