Amazing Pagan Grace

I am sure you have read “Amazing Pagan Grace.” I love it very much and I occasionally have to post it. If you have read it before, forgive me but it is dear to my heart. For those who haven’t, Enjoy! It has the same tune as “Amazing Grace.”

Witchy Comments & Graphics

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.

Goddess Grant Me Patience

Wednesday Images

Goddess, grant me patience

Help me to have tolerance

For the flaws of others

And my own imperfections

Let me wait calmly

For those things that cannot be rushed

And maintain serenity

In the face of adversity

May my temper be even

And my words kind

As I am a reflection of your grace

So let me be patient

So Mote It Be.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace

How sweet the Earth,

That bore a Witch like me.

I once was burned,

Now I survive.

Was Hanged but now I sing.

‘Twas Grace, That Drew

Down the Moon,

and Grace that Raised

the Seas,

The Magick in,

The people’s Will

Will Set our Mother Free.

We Face The East,

and breathe the winds,

That move across the Earth,

From gentle breeze to hurricane,

our breath will bring forth change.

Turn Towards the South,

and Feel the Fire,

That burns in you and me,

The Spirit’s flame shall rise again,

and Burn Eternally.

We Greet the West

Our Souls awash,

In Tides of Primal Birth,

Our Pain and blood, Our Tears and love

Shall cleanse and heal the Earth.

Reach in to North,

and Know your roots,

Down Deep ancestral Caves.

We find the Wisdom of the Crone,

of Circles we are made.

We once were burned

Now we survive

were hanged and now we sing.

hexagram09

 

 

 

 

A splashy sunset bathes the mountains in a soft radiance; the light of a full moon dances on the surface of a rippling river. Grace and beauty adorn the natural world. Grace is not an all-powerful force, nor is it the essential or fundamental thing. By itself, it is form without content. Grace is moonlight on water, not the sunlight at noon. Yet grace brings artistic expression into the world, and enhances the quality of our lives.

In the arts, grace arises out of adherence to form: the dancer becoming the form of the dance, the musician giving life to the form of a musical score, the painter becoming one with the brush and canvas. In human affairs, grace is also aligned with form — with mastery of aesthetic and cultural patterns honed by time and honored by tradition. Through appreciation of graceful customs in human relationships we apprehend the pure beauty of the ideal, of life raised above the mere struggle for survival.

Possession of grace, like the bearing of a beautiful gift to a wedding, can add stature to those in humble positions. Take care to lend grace and dignity even to small happenings, while giving the weight of deep and careful consideration to matters of greater consequence. Though it should not be confused with true substance, an artistic flair can take one far in this world.
