Samhain, 2006

Hail the new year
The wheel turns round
A joyous voice is heard
Blessed be the sound

Greetings Mother of Light
We meet with thee this night
When all the veils are dropped from out sight

Greetings to our honored dead
We hail thee this night
Come and join us at the table
we set for thee, as is right

Earth trembles, in the pale moonlight
As spirits roam over the land tonight
Hail and be welcome to our circle

Air rustles with the winds
Soft voices carried light
Hail and be welcome to our circle

High the fire burns, bring forth the light
A comforting warmth, on this hallowed night
Hail and be welcome to our circle

Cool the water flows
We raise our glasses high, to greet kin and kirth tonight
Hail and be welcome to our circle

Hail Persephone, Great Mistress of the pathways
Guide thou our honored ones to us tonight

Hail Hades, Lord of the underworld
May we sup at thy table in pale moonlight

Hecate, Mother of crossroads, thy hand is seen in shadow
May all who greet thee,  see the light

Gather we now, to share our memories
Of times past and lives now gone
To celebrate their life with a song

Hail my ancestors .. ye who walked before me
Hail my loved ones who are no more to my eyes
My ears are open to hear you speak
My heart is open to hear your song

Gather we around for an earthly feast
To share the sweetness of life as we live it
No woes, no cares, no sadness tonight
We celebrate life in all its glory
We share in its fleeting light

Let the candles be lit in our loved ones names
Pass around the light and share their days

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

Crone Mother whose face is hidden from the light
Come ye forth great Mother and join in our rites
Each living thing in time comes to your embrace
Death is but a door, that someday we all face

We honor our past,
We honor our present,
We look forward to the morrow
And give thanks for all the line behind us
That brought us here tonight

Our tools lay ready, for blessings this night
To the Goddesses glory, we consecrate them with light
Our fore mothers, we ask thy blessings too
Reach out thy hands, on all we do

Your blessings we crave tonight of all nights
For thee are our past, our present and our future in the light

We are the sum of all that has gone before us
We bless it all on this Hallowed night

This night of the New Year do we face our fears
With candles bravely lit, we look back over the days
We set aside the masks we wear for one night
And face ourselves in joy for what the morrow brings

Low the candle burns, the rite is nearly done
Reach out your sprit to your brethren
Hold tight to the souls that surround you
Welcome to them all this New Years day
May the Mothers blessings abound within you

Earth trembled, in the pale moonlight
As spirits roamed over the land tonight
We thank you for joining our circle

Air rustled with the winds
Soft voices carried light
We thank you for joining our circle

High the fire burned, bringing forth the light
A comforting warmth it gave, on this hallowed night
We thank you for joining our circle

Cool the water did flow
We raised our glasses high, and greeted kin and kirth tonight
We thank you for joining our circle
