Samhain Rite, 2004

Cool the wind blows on this Samhain night
Tonight we gather for the rite
Hail to our forefathers, of times gone past
Hail to our foremothers, who taught us the ways that last
Hail to all those gone on before us
Join with me Now to bring the spirit to light

Hail Mother Earth, dark womb of life
To whom all things living return
Blessed be

Hail fights of Air, the breathe of life
That all things living taste of the sweetness
Blessed be

Hail warmth of Fire, the light of life
Your glow of the inner soul, that this night takes flight
Blessed be

Hail Waters rain, this cool autumn night
Tears of blessings fail, on this new years rite
Blessed be

Welcome Persophone, Great Queen of the Underworld
Tonight your citizens pass the veil of light
Bid them safe journey on this night of nights
Hail Hades Queen, we bid you welcome this night

Welcome Inanna, she of a 1000 names
Who tasted death that man might know life
Be welcome in our company, this night when the veil thins
Show us the way to the light

Welcome Hekate, she of the Crossroads
Pale Goddess of the Night
Be welcome in our company this joyous new year
Guardian of souls in the light

Welcome Kali, Great slayer of darkness
Your shield we bid on this night
Protect thou this company with your might
That we return again to the light

Open we now the gates
Between this world and the next
Peering through the mists of time
To see dear faces in the light
Welcome one and all our ancestors
Come sup with us this night

Light the candles round
Let the light abound
Sweet the incense in the night
Tonight we speak with those gone past
To seek their blessings in this life

Hail the blessed ones, who speak to our hearts
Tonight there is no time for grief
Rejoice in the knowledge they bring to thee
Hear clearly what they say in the night

Lift your hearts and lose your woes
On this most blessed of nights
The new year begins
The past is done
Let there be only light

A circle has no beginning
A circle has no end
The circle of life we bind in this life
Has stood since before there was night
We welcome all to join hands in the light
Past and present, with futures hope
We stand together in the rite

The sprial dance of life and light
The motes of energy what we bring to life
Hand to hand, life to life, we bring with us the Light
Blessings on the world of both the living and the dead
Tonight all souls stand together
May there be peace
May there be light
May there be joy on this night

Return now to the Earth
From the souls filght
Reborn to the world
Reborn to the light
Hail and blessings to all past and present
On this the Samhain night

Thank you Great Mother,
Your protection so freely given,
All Hail and honor to she of a 1000 Names
Who let the veil be riven

Hail Mother Earth, dark womb of life
To whom all things living return
 Thank you and Blessed be

Hail fights of Air, the breathe of life
That all things living taste of the sweetness
 Thank you and Blessed be

Hail warmth of Fire, the light of life
Your glow of the inner soul, that this night takes flight
 Thank you and Blessed be

Hail Waters rain, this cool autumn night
Tears of blessings fail, on this new years rite
 Thank you and Blessed be
