Since It Is Sunday…..

During the day while we are working, we like to keep the television on and listen to the News. You know just in case there is any breaking News, so we can keep those of you at work who might not know about it informed. Well, someone forgot to change the channel this morning. Since it is Sunday, I would imagine y’all get the same kind of shows we do on Sunday mornings, a lot of mainstream religion shows. I am very religion tolerate except when it comes to someone trying to push their religion down my throat. That is what I think they are trying to do on Sunday mornings, just my opinion now and you know what they are worth. The first song that came blasting through the television was “Amazing Grace.” My clue right there, someone forgot to change the channel. Then I decided, well if they stole it from us, why not steal it back today. So I give you the Pagan version of “Amazing Grace.” Enjoy!

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 magic in the people’s will
will set our 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 tides 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 magic spirals on.
Merry meet and merry part
and merry meet again.
