Seasonal

Solstice Night (an excerpt from Gypsy's Enchantress)
(Chant quickly)(4x)
Queen of the Stars, Queen of the Moon
Queen of the Horns and Queen and Fire
Lord of Life, Seed of Light,
Flame that warms the darkest night
(More songful)
Queen of the Stars, Queen of the Moon
Queen of the Horns and Queen of Fire
Harken to this Witch's Rune
Work our will as we desire
Lord of Life, Seed of Light,
Flame that warms the coldest night
Bring to us your waxing light
Be with us on Solstice night
(slowly)
To earth tonight, Bring back the light
Bring back the light.

Elementals

Where I sit is HolyThe Wheel goes round
Where I sit is holy,
Holy is the ground,
Forest, Mountain, River,
Listen to the Sound.
Great Spirit circle all around me.
Air moves us, Fire transforms, Water shapes us, Earth Heals us.
And the balance of the Wheel goes round and round. And the balance of the Wheel goes round.

Celebrate the Circle
We celebrate a circle of Air
Living breath of our planet so fair
From your home in the East,
come and witness our feast.
As we celebrate the Circle of Life.

We celebrate a circle of Fire
The flames that give warmth and inspire
From your home in the South,
come and bless every house
As we celebrate the Circle of Life.

We celebrate a circle of Water
Living womb for each son and each daughter
From your home in the West,
give life to our Quest
As we celebrate the Circle of Life

We celebrate a circle of Earth
The body that gave us our birth
From your home in the North,
Give us strength to go forth
As we celebrate the Circle of Life.

We celebrate the Circle we share
Earth, Water, Fire and Air
From below and above, what we share is our Love
As we celebrate the circle of Life.
And we celebrate the Circle of Life.

Earth Mother

In the Air I breathe
In the Firey Summer sun
In the Water I drink
And in the Earth I walk upon.


Divinities

Hoof and HornDNA (from CTC)
Hoof and horn, hoof and horn,
All that dies will be reborn.
Corn and grain, corn and grain.
All that falls shall rise again.
DNA, DNA, double helix DNA.
DNA, DNA, double helix DNA.
We all come from the GoddessWe all come from the Black Bean
We all come from the Goddes
And to her we shall return like a drop of rain,
Flowing to the ocean. (repeat)

We all come from the Horned God
And to him we shall return like a spark of light
Going to the flame.

We all come from the black bean,
Homage to our God caffein
Where there's life there is coffee
Where there's coffee there is life.

Oh She doth bring the buds in Spring,
And laughs among the flowers.
In Summer's heat Her kiss is sweet;
She sings in leafy bowers.
She cuts the cane and gathers grain
As the fruits of Fall surround Her.
Her bones grow old in Winter's cold:
She wraps her cloak around her.

Mother Moon

Oh my Goddess, wrapped in night. The stars about your head.
Your jeweled cloak, around me tight. And send me off to bed.
Shining, shining, ever bright, A beacon when I roam.
Follow, follow, through the night. To see me safely home.
-- MerryMoon Firestone

She Changes Everything She Touches
She changes everything she touches and everything she touches changes.
She chantes everything she touches and everything should touches changes.
Change is, touch is, touch is, change is.
Change Us, touch Us, touch Us, Change Us.


Miscellaneous

Spiraling Into the Center

I am a Warrior

Spiraling into the Center, the Center of the Wheel.
Spiraling into the Center, the Center of the Wheel.
We are the Weavers, we are the woven ones
We are the Dreamers, we are the Dream.
We are the Weavers, we are the woven ones
We are the Dreamers, we are the Dream.

I am a Warrior,
And a being of Power,
I am brave and strong and bright!
With the sword of truth,
And a heart enduring.
I am standing in the Light!
(repeat ad infinitum)

Child of the Universe

I will be gentle with myself, I will love myself.
I am a child of the Universe, being born each moment.
(there is a sufi dance that goes with this song too.)

The Wheel Goes Round

Carol Eagleheart and Bren Chambers

Chorus:
The Wheel goes round and the weheel goes round
And the Wheel goes round and the Wheel goes round

Honor the day and honor the night,
Honor the darkness and honor the light.

Honor the heat and honor the cold,
Honor the young and honor the old.

Honor the head and honor the heart,
Honor the ending and honor the start.

Honor gentleness and honor the rage.

Honor the west and honor the east,
Honor the fasting and honor the feast.

Honor the south and honor the north,
Honor the homecoming and going forth.

There is a sacred one inside

There is a sacred one inside
All the stars and all the galaxies
Run through Her hands like beads.

Circle Within a Circle

StarHawk?
We are a circle within a circle, with no beginning and never ending.

Circle Round the Fire.. Circle round the fire,
to raise the cone of power,
to bring what we desire,
oh so mote it be!

Weave the magic by the moonlight
Dance the circle all night long.
Weave the magic by the moonlight,
Come and sing the Witches Song.
