Summer solstice, 08

We gather here, in Joy this night
Summer solstice is shinning bright
May the Gods be with us all tonight

Hail to the Winds
Blowing warm through our hair

Hail to the Fire
Of Sunlight Fair

Hail to the Waters
That flow with their might

Hail to the Earth
Our Mother on this night

Hail Soleil, Great Mother of summer
Nurturing Mother, gracious and strong
Rich is the Earth under her care
Strong is the life force of all living things
We greet thee in Joy, as the summertime rings

Hail All Father, Patron of Wisdom
He who guides us with a gentle hand
Fertile is the mind, under your care
Strong is the understanding you share with us
We greet thee in Joy, as the summertime rings

We gather to bask in the light
Sunshine at midnight
That shines on all our faces
Together we gather to say the graces

We bid thee Great ones, join with us
To honor one of our number
To make him our High Priest
We humbly seek thy favor

He is Careful and wise
He sees with clear eyes
Blessings All Father
On his sight

Holy are his hands
That reach out to touch
Blessings Great Mother
That his benison be gentle

Open are his ears
To hear our needs
Blessings Wise ones
That he may know wisdom

We ask before the face of the Divine
To place this burden on he who awaits
With willing heart and open eyes

Bound now and forever
To the service of the light
May he be found fitting in thy sight

Speak now my chosen one
Do you accept the burden I share with thee
Freely and without reservation ?
.......
So mote it be

Let two, become one
In the eyes of the light
Shared now is the load
On this summers night

 Woman to Man, Man to Woman
I join my hand with yours
Sword to Chalice, we are one
May our union be blessed

Lift high the cup of life
Filled to the brim with Sunlight's wisdom

Lift high the cup of life
Blessed with the Moons grace

Shared is the cup of Life
With all our Kindred
As the Balance is now meet

Round we go
As the summers fire glows
Hand to Hand
We pass the light

With each hand that touches the flame
We become a chain forged of light
Share do we now with each other
On this blessed solstice night

We give thee grace Great Ones
And by your hand
Our bond is forged in light

Blessed be

Hail to the Winds
That blew warm through our hair

Hail to the Fire
Of Sunlight Fair, that did shine on us all

Hail to the Waters
That flowed with their might
Soothed of thirst are we this night

Hail to the Earth
Our Mother on this night
Blessed be Great Mother
All Hail to thy might
