Songbook

ONE SPIRIT
One spirit in the dark, like a candle waivers,
Many spirits joined as one, burn with the power of the blazing sun.
There is strength in community, a circle empowering you and me,
The circle binds, yet it sets us free,
In the goddess’ name, so mote it be.

WALK WITH WISDOM
(sung at the end of all rituals, classes and gatherings)
Walk with wisdom, from this hallowed place
Walk not in sorrow, our roots shall ‘ere embrace
May strength be your brother, and honor be your friend
And luck be your lover, until we meet again
[SPOKEN] Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again. Blessed Be!

ELEMENTAL RETURN
(usually sung three times, each time with greater speed)
The Earth, the Air, the Fire, the Water
Return, return, return, return
The Earth, the Air, the Fire, the Water
Return, return, return, return
I-ay, I-ay, I-ay, I-ay, I-oh, I-oh, I-oh, I-oh
I-ay, I-ay, I-ay, I-ay, I-oh, I-oh, I-oh, I-oh

AIR MOVES ME
Air moves me, Fire transforms me,
Water cleanses, Earth heals me
And the circle of life goes round and round
And the circle of life goes round

SACRED FIRE
Fire, sacred fire, burning through the night
Come to me in my dreamtime, bring me visions of light
Spiral down, circle round, to these arms open wide
Healing light, burning bright, dry these tears that I’ve cried

THE COVEN SONG (by Gareth Taliesin)
I give my life up into your hands
I give my life up into your hands
I put my life in your hands…
I know you’ll carry me
You can give your life up into my hands
You can give your life up into my hands
You can put your life in my hands…
And I will carry you

FREEDOM (by Kiki Williamson)
I can no more be bound than the hawk in flight
And I am the fire that burns in the night
And I am the shakin’ and the quakin’ of the earth
And I am the waters of the world’s rebirth
I am freedom….I am freedom….I am freedom….I am freedom
I am no more contained than the waves on the sea
I cannot be chained because I must be free
And I am the fire that burns in all things
The bell that tolls with freedom’s call, shake when you hear me ring
I am freedom….I am freedom….I am freedom….I am freedom

THE MOON IS HIGH (Descant by Kiki Williamson)
The moon is high, on this night of power
Her children come, at the witching hour
Our hands are raised, to the four directions
Spirit power is ours again
[Optional descant] Oh she rises, high above us
As her children gather round
Hear us call on all the elements
Ours again…ours again
