Invocations and Chants

 

 

Cast the circle,  feel it grow

Feel the pulse of ebb and flow

Energies of old arise

As of our will, this ring's comprised.

 

A web of love, a web of light

To weave our ritual tonight

A ring of Earth, light from the Moon

Runic rhymes and ritual tunes.

 

Within this circle we shall call

Elements comprising all

That none may enter here within

Who has not been made welcome.

 

Within this circle, hand in hand

Between the worlds we now stand

Circle, Circle, now be cast

As so we join,  from first to last.

 

 

A Prayer from The Key of Solomon

To Protect the Circle

O Lord God, All Powerful and All Merciful, Thou who desirest not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness and live; give and grant unto us thy grace, by blessing and consecrating this earth and this Circle, which is here marked out with the most powerful and holy Names of God.  And thee, I conjure, O Earth, by the Most Holy Name of ASHER EHIEH entering within this Circle, composed and made with mine hand.  And may God, even ADONAI, bless this place with all the virtues of Heaven, so that no obscene or unclean spirit may have the power to enter into this Circle, or to annoy any person who is therein; though the Lord God ADONAI, Who liveth eternally unto the Ages of the Ages.  Amen.

 I beseech Thee, O Lord God, the All Powerful and the All Merciful, that Thou wilt deign to bless this Circle, and all this place, and all those who are therein, and that Thou wilt grant unto us, who serve Thee, and rehearse nothing but the wonders of Thy law, a good Angel for our Guardian; remove from us every adverse power; preserve us from evil and from trouble; grant, O Lord, that we may rest in this place in allsafety, through Thee, O Lord, Who livest and reignest unto the Ages of the Ages.

Amen.

 

 

 Queen, and huntress, chaste, and fair,

Now the Sun is laid to sleep,

Seated, in they silver chair,

State in wanted manner keep;

Hesperus, entreats they light,

Goddess, excellently bright.

 

Earth, let not thy envious shade

Dare itself to interpose;

Cynthia's shining orb was made

Heaven to clear, when day did close:

Bless us then with wished sight,

Goddess excellently bright.

 

Lay thy bow of pearl apart,

And thy crystal shining quiver;

Give unto the flying hart

Space to breath, how short soever:

Thou that mak'st a day of night,

Goddess excellently bright.

Darksome night and shining moon,

Hearken to the Witches' rune.

East then South, West then North,

Hear! Come! I call Thee forth!

 

By all the powers of land and sea,

Be obedient unto me.

Wand and Pentacle and Sword,

Hearken ye unto my word.

 

Cords and Censer, Scourge and Knife,

Waken all ye into life.

Powers of the Witches' Blade,

Come ye as the charge is made.

 

Queen of Heaven, Queen of Hell,

Send your aid unto the spell.

Horned Hunter of the night,

Work my will by magic rite.

 

By all the powers of land and sea,

As I do, "So mote it be".

By all the might of Moon and Sun,

As I do will, it shall be done.

We are the flow, we are the ebb

We are the weavers, we are the web

We are the flow, we are the ebb

We are the witches back from the dead

 

Ocean Mother

Ocean Mother healing
She is the healer of the Earth
Ocean Mother crying
She is the mourner of the Earth
Ocean Mother laughing
She is the brightness of the Earth
Ocean Mother birthing
She is the cradle of the Earth

The rivers are flowing
Flowing and growing.
The rivers are flowing
Down to the sea.
Mother earth carry me
Child I will always be
Mother earth carry me
Down to the sea.

The moon she is wailing
Waiting and wailing
The moon she is waiting
For us to be free.
Sister moon watch over me
Your sister I shall be
Sister moon watch over me
Until we are free.

Goddess of the Siver Moon

Who we invoke to help us soon

In our work upon this night

As we begin out magic rite

So come to us, come down, come down

And bathe us with your silver gown

Give us the power to work our will

And bless us with good fortune still

Silver flowing, Diana's growing

Growing, showing love for me

Isis, Astrate, Diana, Hecate,

Demeter, Kali, Inanna.
