Welcome to our hearth this night
Join with us now, to pursue delight
In presence of the Gods of Old
Seek with us, mysteries untold
The epic battle we will witness a-gain
To see if the Holly or Oak will remain
As one King's defeated, another is crowned
The cycle of life once more comes around.
So, to enter, this sacred space
Set aside despair, and peace embrace
Release your worries, stress, and fear
In perfect love and trust, we welcome you here
On this dark, midwinter's eve
Join in the magick, we will weave
As we celebrate, through this long night
Welcome back, the new born
What awaits you inside is sure to delight,
But before you engage I must be forthright.
You shall enter only of your own free will,
May you gain what you need, be it knowledge or skill.
To those who will join you in circle tonight,
You may hold no grudge and forget your fights.
With love and joy you must enter,
As we take this time to ground and centre.
When you shake off the slights of the mundane,
You shall reap the wisdom of joining the arcane.
If it is of your own free will – please follow me.
The wind blows and things change
I call you now to the hills
To cowans eyes we seem so strange
Here as we gather to unite our wills
You are called now to this circles rim
Before entering you must release
Pain and anger dire and grim
Instead embrace love and peace
Many struggles we each have faced
And new ones we must face within
It matters not the cord round your waist
Within this circle we are all kin
If it is your will, be now bold
Stride within this circles space
And feel the Goddess love enfold
And our lord fill you with his grace
If it is of your own free will and you are ready
