Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the Earth
That bore a witch like me!
I once was burned, now I survive,
Was hung and now I sing.
T'was grace that drew down the moon
And grace that raised the seas,
The magick in the people's will
Will set out Mother free.
We face the East and breathe the winds
That move across this earth,
From gentle breeze to hurricane
Our breath will bring forth the change.
Turn towards the South and feel the fire
That burns in you and me.
The spirit's flame will rise again
And burn eternally.
We greet the West, our souls awash
In tide of primal birth.
Our tears and blood, our pain and love
Will cleanse and heal the earth.
Reach into the North and know your roots
Down deep ancestral caves.
We find the wisdom of the Crone,
Of circles we are made.
Amazing Earth, enduring life,
From death into rebirth.
T'is earth I am and earth I love
And earth I'll always be.
Amazing Grace, how sweet the
Earth That bore Witches like we.
We once were burned, now we survive,
Were hung and now we sing.
Goddess bless, so mote it be,
Our magick spirals on
Merry meet and merry part
And merry meet again.

My first visit here. Beautiful drawing of a beautiful gown similar to Bill Gibb's (London) creations circa 1970.
Put 'arachne' into Google Image search for similar.

Hiya Davo, still winning the obscure comments league by a long way :>)

Witches didn't survive the fires, we do now!

Good to be back Granny ;>)

Brownie, Welcome, I hope you come back lots :>)

(Cue insane laughter!) It's magic Cocaine Jesus. A Wiccan Rite and wonderfully written, I've been singing it, and hope others do too!
