Processional: We Approach the Sacred Grove

We approach the sacred grove
With hearts and minds and flesh and bone,
Join us now in ways of old, we have come home.

Processional: Come We Now As a People

Come we now as a people,
To gather at the Sacred Well,
Come we now as a people,
Together in the warmth and the light of the Flame.

Earth Mother Chant

Earth Mother, we sing to your body,
                 Earth Mother, we sing to your stones,
Earth Mother, we honor your body,
                 Earth Mother, we honor your bones.

Portal Song

CHORUS
   By Fire and by Water, between the Earth and Sky,
   We stand like the World-Tree rooted deep, crowned high. (repeat)

Come we now to the Well, the eye and the mouth of Earth,
Come we now to the Well, and silver we bring,
Come we now to the Well, the waters of rebirth,
Come we now to the Well, together we sing:

CHORUS

We will kindle a Fire, Bless all, and with harm to none,
We will kindle a Fire, and offering pour,
We will kindle a Fire, A light ‘neath the Moon & Sun,
We will kindle a fire, our spirits will soar.

CHORUS

Gather we at the Tree, the root & the crown of all,
Gather we at the Tree, Below & above,
Gather we at the Tree, Together we make our call,
Gather we at the Tree, In wisdom & love.

CHORUS

For the Gatekeeper: Gatekeeper Open the Portals

Gatekeeper open the portals,
between the Gods and mortals,
Power freely flows,
as our magic grows!

For the Gatekeeper: Keepers of the Way Between

The Keepers of the ways between,
The world of Gods and mortal kin,
From common land to otherworlds,
Throw wide the Gates for us again.

For the Beloved Dead: Mothers and Fathers of Old

From far beyond this mortal plane, Mothers and Fathers of old
We pray that you return again, Mothers and Fathers of old
To share with us the mysteries and secrets all untold
Of the ancient ways we seek to reclaim, Mothers and Fathers of old

For the Nature Spirits: Fur and Feather

Fur and feather and scale and skin
Different without but the same within
Many of body but one of soul
Through all creatures are the worlds made whole

For the Deities: Hail all the Gods and Goddesses

Hail all the gods, Hail all the goddesses
Hail all the holy ones, we dwell together
Powers of the sky, powers of the sacred earth
Powers of the underworld, we dwell together
Hail all the gods, Hail all the goddesses
Hail all the gods and goddesses

(final time)
Hail all the gods, Hail all the goddesses
Hail all the holy ones, we dwell together

For all Kindreds: Gods and Spirits

Gods and Spirits, Kindreds Three,
Powers of earth and sky and sea.
By Fire and Well, by Sacred Tree,
Offering we make to ye.

For Receiving the Blessing: Pour the Waters

Pour the Waters, raise the cup,
Drink your share of wisdom deep.
Strength & Love now fill us up,
As the Elder Ways we keep.

For Receiving the Blessing: Power of the Spirits

Power of the Spirits
Flowing through me
Power of the Spirits
Shining in me
Power of the Spirits
Growing with me
