Fill the sky with the power of the ocean
Let it rain, Let it rain

LYRICS

Web of wonder, web of wonder
I’m a thread and you’re a thread
Web of wonder, web of wonder
Weave the web, weave the web

All’s connected in the web
All the living, all the dead
Through its fabric we are met
Intertwining, sorrow mend

I can feel you, love
I can feel your love

Sound of Change

 
AIbum: I Am ℗ 2001 (c) 2001 Spiral Rhythm
Released on: 2001-01-01

LYRICS
 
Wind blows, fire burns,
Water flows and the earth turns.
Wind blows, fire burns,
Water flows and the earth turns.
Can you hear it?
Can you hear it?
Can you hear it?
That’s the sound of change,
That’s the sound of change,
Oh, that’s the sound of change.
 
Wind blows, lifts you up,
Lets you touch the sky.
And the fire burns your spirit black,
Forges freedom’s cry.
Water flows through your veins,
Becomes your salty tears.
And the earth she turns upon her course,
Marks your living years.

Ancient Love

© 1996 Carolyn McDade

LYRICS

Long before the night was born from darkness
Long before the dawn rolled unsteady from fire
Long before She wrapped her scarlet arm around the hills
there was a love, this ancient love was born.

Long before the grass spotted green the bare hillside
Long before a wing unfolded to wind
Long before She wrapped her long blue arm around the sea
there was a love, this ancient love was born.

Long before a chain was forged from the hillside
Long before a voice uttered freedom’s cry
Long before She wrapped her bleeding arms around a child
there was a love, this ancient love was born.

Long before the name of a God was spoken
Long before a cross was nailed from a tree
Long before She laid her arm of colors ‘cross the sky
there was a love, this ancient love was born.

Wakeful our night, Slumbers our morning
Stubborn the grass sowing green wounded hills
As we wrap our healing arms to hold what her arms held
this ancient love, this aching love rolls on.

LYRICS

Dear Goddess, we ask you
to bless this our food (we say)

To the elements making it
our gratitude (alway)

May the gift of this sustenance
give us the fuel (today)

To allow us to share our own gifts with the world (we pray)

Sung by Hecate’s Wheel.

Brede, Brede come to my house
come to my house with promise of spring
Brede, Brede come to my house
On this, this Imbolc Eve

This eve a feast prepared for you
As winters end is here
I’ll make your bed upon the hearth
Your healing fire is near

Brede, Brede come to my house

Brede, Brede come to my house

I’ll dress your well with flowers & leaves
Flowers & leaves, tie clooties to trees
I’ll dress your well with flowers & things
Your healing waters of spring

Brede, Brede come to my house
come to my house with promise of spring
Brede, Brede come to my house
On this, this Imbolc Eve

I’ll keep your flame, & hold it dear
Forever and a day
Your light returns at Candlemas
And so you’ll light the way

Brede, Brede come to my house

Brede, Brede come to my house
On this, this Imbolc Eve

This, this Imbolc Eve
This, this Imbolc Eve

Solstice Carol

The old carol “A Soalin” changed to more of a pagan mindset.
Lyrics by Catt Kingsgrave, recorded by Ravens

Heigh Ho, Fire’s glow;
West and South and North do know
In the East he rises
Heigh Ho, Fire’s glow

The night is endless long now, the snow lay all around
The pregnant moon sails brightly above the bitter ground
And on the ground we circle, our fires blazing high
Tonight we meet to raise the Sun Child to the sky

A sol, a sol, a Solstice, please you Sirs, a Solstice
Deep the night and far the dawn
Join our circle, call Him on
One for summer’s dreaming thrall, 
One for winter, dance we all.

(Heigh Ho round X2)

Come soft now, Maiden Mother, our dance is for your son
And for the turning season and life anew begun
In summer well you loved him, and served him death in fall
Your lover is the Sun now, dance we dance we all

A sol, a sol, a Solstice, please you Sirs, a Solstice
Gone the night, the day is nigh
Join our circle, raise him high
One for summer’s dreaming thrall, 
One for winter, dance we all

(Heigh Ho round x3)

Go merry met, my gentle friends, let nothing you dismay
The bright Son of our Lady comes birthing with the day
To free us all from winter’s grasp and mind us all of may
Oh tidings of comfort and joy…

The Christians and the Pagans

LYRICS

Amber called her uncle, said “We’re up here for the holiday,
Jane and I were having Solstice, now we need a place to stay.”
And her Christ-loving uncle watched his wife hang Mary on a tree,
He watched his son hang candy canes all made with red dye number three.
He told his niece, “It’s Christmas Eve, I know our life is not your style,”
She said, “Christmas is like Solstice, and we miss you and its been awhile,”

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
And just before the meal was served, hands were held and prayers were said,
Sending hope for peace on earth to all their gods and goddesses.

The food was great, the tree plugged in, the meal had gone without a hitch,
Till Timmy turned to Amber and said, “Is it true that you’re a witch?”
His mom jumped up and said, “The pies are burning,” and she hit the kitchen,
And it was Jane who spoke, she said, “It’s true, your cousin’s not a Christian,”
“But we love trees, we love the snow, the friends we have, the world we share,
And you find magic from your God, and we find magic everywhere.”

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
And where does magic come from? I think magic’s in the learning,
‘Cause now when Christians sit with Pagans only pumpkin pies are burning.

When Amber tried to do the dishes, her aunt said, “Really, no, don’t bother.”
Amber’s uncle saw how Amber looked like Tim and like her father.
He thought about his brother, how they hadn’t spoken in a year,
He thought he’d call him up and say, “It’s Christmas and your daughter’s here.”
He thought of fathers, sons and brothers, saw his own son tug his sleeve,
saying, “Can I be a Pagan?” Dad said, “We’ll discuss it when they leave.”

So the Christians and the Pagans sat together at the table,
Finding faith and common ground the best that they were able,
Lighting trees in darkness, learning new ways from the old,
and Making sense of history and drawing warmth out of the cold.

What if our Religion

“What if our religion was each other. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was Earth. If forests our church. If holy waters rivers and ocean. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being.”
