Ostara (Spring Song)

Song: Ostara (Spring Song)
Artist: Lisa Thiel
Album: Circle Of The Seasons

Praise to the Spring, Praise to all living things
Praise to the Maiden and the joy that she brings
Praise to the Earth let all her creatures now sing
Hope is renewed with the coming of the Spring

We turn from the darkness and the wise Crone within
We turn to the Maiden and creation begins
Its a time for things growing and time now for flowing
A time now for sowing the seeds of your dreams.

Praise to the Spring, Praise to all living things
Praise to the Maiden and the joy that she brings
Praise to the Earth let all her creatures now sing
Hope is renewed with the coming of the Spring

The heart fires are stirring with the new life returning
Its time now for learning what rebirth truly means
We honor ourselves and all the faeries and elves
May we dance and ring bells
for the coming of the Spring!

Praise to the Spring, Praise to all living things
Praise to the Maiden and the joy that she brings
Praise to the Earth let all her creatures now sing
Hope is renewed with the coming of the Spring

So open your heart to natures wondrous art.
Its time now to start the Healing of the Green.
Young rabbits abound and theres flowers all around
The air is filled with the Sound
of the Coming of the Spring!

Praise to the Spring, Praise to all living things
Praise to the Maiden and the joy that she brings
Praise to the Earth let all her creatures now sing
Hope is renewed with the coming of the Spring

So open your heart to natures wondrous art.
Its time now to start the Healing of the Green.
Young rabbits abound and theres flowers all around
The air is filled with the Sound
of the Coming of the Spring!

Praise to the Spring, Praise to all living things
Praise to the Maiden and the joy that she brings
Praise to the Earth let all her creatures now sing
Hope is renewed with the coming of the Spring

Silver Moon

(Tune: Silver Bells)

City witches, busy witches
Dressed in festival style
In the air there’s a feeling of ritual.

Women laughing, circle passing
Sharing smile after smile
And ‘round every hearth fire you hear:

Silver moon, Mother moon
It’s Goddess time in the city.
Circling, hear them sing,
Soon it will be Solstice Day!

Strings of candles, held by handles
Give a flickering glow
As the witches weave magickal treasures.

Touching changing, changing touching
This is Diana’s scene
And with all the blessings you hear:

Silver moon, Mother moon
It’s Goddess time in the city.
Circling, hear them sing,
Soon it will be Solstice Day!

Yule Fires

In ancient days the folk of old
When chilled with fright by winter’s cold
Did kindle up a great Yule Fire
With leaping flames in its great pyre

CHORUS

Yule fires light up the night
Yule fires bring us delight
Yule fires call back the Sun
and keep our hearts ever burning!

So to entice the waning Sun
To rise again and wider run
It’s fiery course across the sky
To warm them so they would not die

CHORUS

So we, whose minds now sense a chill
Of anger in the the “evil will”
the human conflict, hate, and strife
Which hold a menace over Life

CHORUS

Would kindle up a flame of love
That we within our hearts may move
in Yuletide joy, with love embrace
And thus abide in peace and grace

CHORUS

Share the Light

(Tune: First Noel)

On this Winter holiday,
let us stop and recall
That this season is holy
to one and to all.

Unto some a Son is born,
unto us comes a Sun,
And we know, if they don’t
that all paths are one.

Share the light, share the light!
Share the light, share the Light!
All paths are one on this holy night!

Be it Chanukah or Yule,
Christmas time or Solstice night,
All celebrate the eternal light.

Lighted tree or burning log,
Or eight candle flames.
All gods are one god,
whatever their names.

Share the light, share the light!
Share the light, share the Light!
All paths are one on this holy night!

O Holy Night

O holy night
the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the Sun Child’s rebirth
Long lay the land, in cold of winter pining
Till he appears to shine warmth on the Earth
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
As yonder breaks the new and glorious dawn:

Chorus:

Sing now with Joy
O sing in celebration
O night divine
O night, of holy birth
O night, divine
O night O night divine

Moon up above
We gather in your soft light
And wait for him, son of light to appear
Orb of our mother
Who holds us in her keeping
Send us your child
To bring warmth to our souls
The winter is cold, the nights are long in darkness
We long for the spring , the hope that now begins.

Chorus:

Sing now with Joy
O sing in celebration
O night divine
O night, of holy birth
O night, divine
O night O night divine
