O Brighde

Oh Brighde,  our heart, our brightest queen,
cast your blessings on to us
We are your children and you are the mother,
so harken unto us!
Oh fire of life, pure fire of love,
please Brigit come to us!

Oh Brighde,  our heart, our brightest queen,
cast your blessings on to us
You are the cauldron here in our grove
Earth mother strengthen us
Oh fire of life, pure fire of love,
please Brigit come to us!

Lyrics

Little Sally Walker
Walkin’ down the street (clap clap)

Didn’t know what to do
So she stopped in front of me (clap clap)

She said, “Hey girl, do that thing! Do that thing and switch!” (Person 1 dances)

“Hey girl, do that thing! Do that thing and switch!” (Person 2 swaps sides, copies the dance back)

Changing Woman

(by Adele Getty)

There is a woman who weaves the night sky
See how she spins. See her fingers fly.
She stands beside us from beginning to end.
She is our mother, our sister, our friend.

She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes
She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes

There was a time before we were born
We were the calm in the eye of the storm
We had a memory of so deep
About the truth and the beauty so sweet

She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes
She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes

Man and woman passion ran wild
They gave birth to a freedom child
We are the children of love and of light
We’ll guide the children through the perilous night
Life up our hearts and raise our voices
Let the people know all of the choices

She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes
She changes everything she touches and
Everything she touches changes

She is the weaver and we are the web
She is the needle and we are the thread
She weaves within us from beginning to end
Our great mother, our sister, our friend
