Hecate: Queen of the Witches (Triple Goddess)

Music: Hecate, written and performed by Ruth Barrett, High Priestess and Founder of Temple of Diana, on The Year is a Dancing Woman, Vol. 2. available at Dancing Tree Music (http://www.dancingtreemusic.com/).

She walks the roads
Every moonless night
Watching the stars
To her heart’s delight

With a blazing torch
And whispered song
The path of destiny
She travels on

She moves through darknenss
Like a knife
Her dreams are seeds
Of future’s life

To taste the sweetness
With the pain
Is to know how much the flower
Needs the rain

The place She waits
Is where three roads meet
The Past, the Present
And Future greet

To meet Her there
Where the horned owl flies
Is to ride the pale stars down
From the skies

She’ll take you up
Then She’ll take you down
She’ll take you under
And turn you round

And when She’s done
At the dawn light’s rise
You’ll meet every gaze
With brighter eyes

Oh, Old One
Of the midnight rhyme
Bless your daughters
In our time

As we take to roads
In the moonless night
To seek the wisdom of your
Ancient sight

To seek the wisdom of
Your ancient sight

Hecate (Seridina)

Song: Hecate
Artist: Seridina
Album:From Within

 

Dark mother goddess of the crossroads
banish this darkness that is eating at my soul.
Why am I so lost?
Take this pain from me.

With twin torches in hand
guide me through your dark waters
so I may emerge reborn
for I am your daughter.

Hecate to thee I pray
guide me through my darkness
Hecate to thee I pray
hold me in the night

Waning moon, darkness grows
In my blood life force flows
Time to rest, wounds are healed
Look to self alls revealed

Hecate to thee I pray
guide me through my darkness
Hecate to thee I pray
hold me in the night

Mid-night dream, moon of mine,
Moonless night now begun.
Hour of dark, Goddess breathe
Show us now visions meant to be

Hecate to thee I pray
guide me through my darkness
Hecate to thee I pray
hold me in the night

Hecate to thee I pray
guide me through my darkness
Hecate to thee I pray
hold me in the night

Hecate to thee I pray
guide me through my darkness
Hecate to thee I pray
hold me in the night

The Silent Awakening

Song: The Silent Awakening
Artist: Tina Malia
Album: The Silent Awakening

I dreamt I
Was born a girl
Living alone
In the world

Passing the
Hours away
I looked into
The face of sorrow

Tempted by the
Taste of tomorrow
And the scent
Of yesterday

But that was only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

We are only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

I dreamt that I
Could not find you
Always was a
Step behind you

Could not see
Your face

Wandering around
The maze
Of illusion’s
Dusty haze

A soul with no
Resting place

But that was only
A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

A dream of a dream
This world is
Not what it seems

We are the wind
That carries the seeds
We are the roots
Of the banyan tree

We are love offered
On the wing
That stretches
Across eternity

We are a chord in
Life’s symphony
We are the silent
Awakening

And only love
Can lift the veil
The veil
Away

Only love can
Take it’s place

and I have travelled
Long and far
just to come home
To your grace

Hecate

Song: Hecate
Artist: Wendy Rule
Album: The Lotus Eaters

Gone are the leaves on the Hecate trees
Shed to the wind till her skeleton claws the sky
I am alone in a forest of memory
Dragging behind me the howl of the winter

Hecate, cate, cate (8x)

Gone are the leaves on the Hecate trees
Shed to the wind till her skeleton claws the sky
I am alone in a forest of memory
Dragging behind me the howl of the winter

Hecate, cate, cate (24x)

Come and Be Welcome

Song: Come And Be Welcome
Artist: Heather Dale
Album: The Green Knight

Come and be welcome
Oh wandering minstrel
Spreading your music
From city to town

Be you harper or piper
Your duty is noble
You carry the tunes
That will never die down

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Oh noble court poet
The treasure of knowledge
Is kept in your words

So unlock the riches
Of rhyme and of rhythm
And let all the wealth
Of your wisdom be heard

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Oh fair-voiced singer
Weaving the magic
Of music along

You can thunder the heavens
To raise up an army
Or simply bring laughter
And peace with a song

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Oh rare tale-teller
With stories of wonder
You wisely recall

Now tell of the heroes
Who dwell in our history
For tales that are true
Are the best of them all

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Wherever you hail from
Share all the secrets
And joys of your art

For every new voice
That joins in the chorus
Will uplift the spirit
And cheer the heart

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come from the forest
And sit around the fire
Come from the fields
And enter our hall

Come drink from
The guest-cup
Come join
In our circle

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all

Come and be welcome
Ye bards one and all
