Rite of Lammas 2007

Hail to the harvest, the first fruits of bounty
Joyous is the time we gather the grains

Sweet the wind blows
the songs of the grain
Welcome is the cooling of our brow

Warm the fires glow
Calling us home from the fields
Welcome is light to shine our way

Cool is the water
Awaiting us at the rows end
To quench our thirst

Soft is the Earth
beneath our feet
and blessed is the harvest
She has yielded to us

In the windows, light shines
blessed is the glow of heart felt fires
Welcoming us home

We praise our glorious Earth Mother, Gaia,
and we ask that she join us in our circle this eve
as she is the one who gave us life

We praise our wondrous Father Lugh
Keeper of the Keys of eternity
Join us this eve, we ask of thee
thee who makes of life a joy

Offer we, the first loaf of bread
to be blessed with burgeoning life
Honor we the grain that died
so that we might live

Hail Sekhmet, Goddess of the fires light
To thee we offer our hearts on the new dawn

Hail to the light bringer
She who awakens the spirit
Transformer of our inner soul
Who opens the ways for her children to walk
She before whom all evil trembles
Let our eyes be opened
to the fruits of your wisdom

Let us see, with clarity within
and cleanse our hearts of all that is grim
Sacrifice we all that is laid bare before our eyes
as altar smoke on the evening air

With the smokes rising
Let our hearts be free
Let us give up that which hinders us
Let us lay down such burdens willingly

Hail Habondia
May your Cornucopia of grace
Be full of blessings
For your children

Sweet the wind blew
the songs of the grain
Welcome was the cooling of our brow

Warm the fires glowed
Calling us home from the fields
Welcome was the light to shine our way

Cool was the water
Awaiting us at the rows end
That did quench our thirst

Soft was the Earth
beneath our feet
and blessed was the harvest
She yielded to us
