The Circle Of Light

circles-of-light


Written by Gwendolyn Reece for a ritual to clear away confusion and misdirection.

Lyrics

The Circle of Light 


We weave, we weave the Circle of Light

In service, in service of all that is Right.

We weave, we weave the Circle of Light

Revealing, revealing what’s hidden from sight.

For Light is the Truth and Light purifies,

Revealing and cleansing miasma and lies.

Oh, Light of the Truth with your unflinching gaze,

Awaken us all from our dangerous daze.

"Epona" was written in 1992 for an open circle held in honor of Epona held on the beach in Southern Delaware. At the end of the ritual a woman riding a white horse came galloping up the shoreline. She smiled as she rode by as we stood astonished at the gift of her presence.

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


A song for our times by Gwendolyn Reece.

AthenaColumbia

Lyrics

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


When we rise up and claim our power

The Good, it cannot fall.

We take up the shield of service

To defend the rights of all.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We defend the Constitution,

Rule of Law across the land.

When blind Justice, She is threatened

We will not let it stand.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We tend the Hearth of Kindness,

Soul of Democracy.

Welcome tired, poor, huddled masses

Yearning to breathe free.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our Healer’s Cup we offer

To all souls who have need.

We work to heal our nation

Of hatred and of greed.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our visionary garden blooms

With dreams we bring to birth,

Of what society can be

If we dare to love the Earth.


 [Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


So rise up and claim your power

Together we will grow.

See America as we should be

And we will make it so.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

and will make things right.

Lyrics

Walk The Starry Roads

Walk the starry roads,
Walk among the spheres.

Walk the starry roads,
Find and face your fears.

Walk the starry roads,
Find and claim your power.

Walk the starry roads,
Find your place and hour.

Walk the starry roads,
Find and know your duty.

Walk the starry roads,
Find your soul's true beauty.

Walk the starry roads,
Walk the starry roads,
Walk the starry roads.
