Graduation Rite

Hail Great Mother as we stand on the threshold of life
We reach for your hand to help guide the way

Hail Great Father as we stand on the threshold of life
We seek your wisdom to help guide the way

Blessings on the Earth, on which we will walk
May our steps be sure and on good pathways

Blessings on the Air we breathe, sustainer of life
That we take no moment of life for granted

Blessings on the fire that is life's passions
May we embrace it to the fullest

Blessings on the Water of even the tears life may bring
As it means we are willing to take risks
 

Hail Mighty Mother and Father of life
hear your child who here stands

We walk the measured pace of pomp and circumstance
Dressed in fine array
Yet within, do our own doubts hold sway

We seek out the wisdom
To live our lives well
We seek out the passion
To do it with fervor
We seek out strength
To endure life's troubles
We seek out the might
To do what is right with our days

We pass by the unseen gates of yet another milestone along life's highway
So much to do, so many things to see, the moments laid out before us like a ribbon of light
We seek understanding for what tomorrow holds
We pray for the knowledge to face it well
We stand as a beacon for those yet behind us
For it is by our hand that the world will be created

Tomorrow holds the promise of life, but it is today in which we live it
May we use each of those precious days to our own enlightenment

Youth is a gift without price, that is too often squandered away
May we use the gift of vigor to do what needs be done for the good of all
Great Father we ask your guidance, to deal with it all , come what may

We stand on the threshold of tomorrow, with all our life before us
We stand proud and tall in the pathways of light
May it always be there to guide us

Blessings on the Earth, on which we will walk
Our steps will be sure and on good pathways

Blessings on the Air we breathe, sustainer of life
We will take no moment of life for granted

Blessings on the fire that is life's passions
We will embrace it to the fullest

Blessings on the Water of even the tears life may bring
We will not fear to take the risk
