Songs & Runes

This section of the site is for longer pieces that are really songs rather than short chants. I will also add things here that are spoken runes. FYI: a spoken rune is a sequence of rhythmically spoken words or sounds that raise energy or alter consciousness. I use a lower bitrate on these to save bandwidth.

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


A song for our times by Gwendolyn Reece.

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.

Bridget's Fires


BrigidsFiresmall

Back in 2006, I got an email from Jera Runesinger of SerpentOak with lyrics and a midi file as a submission to the original chant website.  Sadly, that was in the last gasp days of the old site. 

So, I spent some time with Garageband this morning can came up with this. 

I am trying to track Jera down to let her know I've reposted her song.



Lyrics

Bridget’s Fires   

May my Hearth glow bright. May my home be blessed. In the deep of night, may my sorrows find rest. When my weary eyes rest on the fires haze, Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn

May my thoughts burn pure till my goals I reach. May I live and learn from the lessons you teach. May I see your face in the fires bright rays. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn  

May my hands make things that are good and strong. May they heal and hold when the troubles are long. May I carve my life under Bridget’s gaze. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn

May my heart beat strong when it’s cracked and torn. May it show no trace of the scars it has worn. May the light of love shine in darker days. Goddess lend your ear as these words I pray

Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn. Hearth and Head, Hands and heart, Bridget’s fires, within me burn
