Hail Mighty Mother
Your daughters gather here
To bring to your sight
A new woman to the Earth

Hail to the Ways of Fire
That light is kindled here

Hail to the Ways of Water
That life flows in our veins

Hail to the Ways of Earth
That a new woman's walks this way

Hail the Ways of Air

Neither child, nor yet woman are thee
The time to learn the ways you will walk
Now pass in front of thee

Are you ready to walk the ways of womanhood ?
Are you ready to take up a new life ?
Are you ready to become a mother in your time ?
Are you ready for your soul to take flight ?

To aid you along your way
Ready to lend a helping hand
To our new sister, in the fellowship of women
From now, to the end of all days

Red is the color of passions fire
Red is the flame of the touch we pass to thee
Red is the pathway we walk of desire
