Pagan Songs and Chants - Come, Witches, to the Dance

English

Come, Witches, to the Dance

Come, Witches, to the Dance
To the merry Dance
Our Lady loves
Our Lord, oh
 
With pipe and drum
In Moon and Sun
For fair Dian
And merry Pan
 
The old ways
Are made young, Oh
The old ways
Are made young
 
When midnight fills the sky
My true love and I
Will cast a
Circle round, Oh
 
With voices strong
In chant and song
We'll work our will
And drink our fill
 
And dance the
Darkness down, Oh
And dance the
Darkness down
 
To the Lady's
Dance of Life
Her sweet
Piper calls
 
But if you should
Stumble
If you
Should fall
 
Rise up to the
Rhythm
That embraces
It all
 
Come, Witches
To the Dance
 
All hail the Beltane fire
May it well inspire
Burn triumphant
To the Lady
 
She is crowned this day
The Queen of May
Over woods and fields
Her green sceptre She wields
 
The Mother now
Holds sway, O
The Mother now
Holds sway
 
Farewell, Our Lady Green
It is Halloween
Now the Crone wields
Her winter sceptre
 
Though old and wise
Young are Her eyes
Though Death She brings
Rebirth She sings
 
To all that fades
And dies, Oh
To all that fades
And dies
 
To the Lady's
Dance of Life
Her sweet
Piper calls
 
But if you should
Stumble
If you
Should fall
 
Rise up to the
Rhythm
That embraces
It all
 
Come, Witches
To the Dance
 
Once in the Full Moon's gleam
As I lay in dream
Came the Lady
To my chamber
 
In earthly form
Like woman born
All Time, all Space
Lay in Her face
 
I rose to Her
Embrace, Oh
I rose to Her
Embrace
 
So queenly was She
I fell to my knee
And bent my brow
To Her, Oh
 
"Oh no," said She,
"Kneel not to Me
But stand, arise
Open your eyes
 
It is yourself you see
Oh
Yourself you see
In Me."
 
Come, Witches, as before
To the Shining Door
Fear not to
Fling it open
 
Fear not to see
The Mystery
That we are Pan
And fair Dian
 
And evermore
Shall be, Oh
And evermore
Shall be
