Track Name: Forest Child
I am Forest Child
Born in deep earth
I am star, I am stone
I am free, I fly alone, Forest Child

I am Forest Child
Riding the Wild Wind
Raised by the wolves
I know no fear
The forest is within me, Forest Child

Spread your wings
Embrace the night
Fly on the Wild Wind
The power of Earth will feed your soul
Spread your wings
Embrace the night
Fly on the Wild Wind
The power of Air will set you free

I am Forest Child
Spirit of the old magic
I am hope, I am truth
I am a dream, lost in moonlight, Forest Child

I am Forest Child
Daughter of the trees
In their shadows
In their stillness
I am free, free to be, Forest Child

Spread your wings
Embrace the night
Fly on the Wild Wind
The power of Earth will feed your soul
Spread your wings
Embrace the night
Fly on the Wild Wind
The power of Air will set you free
Free to be Forest Child
Track Name: Dryad
Shy and gentle Dryads
Beloved by Artemis
You’ve guarded Oaken Groves
Since Times lost in the mists
You tend each branch and bough
And watched your trees grow tall
And mourn each fading leaf
As Autumn brings the fall

Chorus
In this Grove on Sacred Ground
We will dance the Circle round
We will dance the Circle round

You love each precious Acorn
As a Mother loves a Child
You teach them ancient Wisdom
And Stories of the Wild
And as they leave your loving care
And fall to Mother Earth
You cast a gentle Blessing
On this magical rebirth

(Chorus)

Dance with me sweet Dryads
Beneath the Oaken boughs
And Bless me as I pledge to you
My sacred Druid Vow
I swear by peace and love
No harm shall fall to thee
This Grove is Sacred Ground
And ever more will be

(Chorus)
Track Name: Maypole Tree
A fair maid walked out
On a fine Spring day
She met a jolly tinker
Who to her did say
Come dance with me, dance with me
Dance with me round the Maypole tree

(Chorus)
Dance in the Moonlight
Dance in the Sun
Let the music play
Till the dance is done
Dance to the Lady
Your love and desire
Dance to the Lord
Of the Sacred Fire

A garland of flowers
I’ll wear as a crown
With bells on my feet
I will dance the tree round
Come dance with me, dance with me
Dance with me round the Maypole tree

(Chorus)

With ribbons of Gold
The Sun’s shining rays
And Green for the Lady
Dear Goddess we praise
Come dance with me, dance with me
Dance with me round the Maypole tree

(Chorus)

Come Jack in the Green
Come sweet Lady May
By oak, ash and thorn
Dance on this May Day
Come dance with me, dance with me
Dance with me round the Maypole tree

(Chorus)
Track Name: I am Strong (Woman Eternal)
Sacred this place where I stand beneath stars
In circle I cast with water and fire
Moon lights my step as I dance to the Lady
Weaving my spell so bright with desire

(Chorus)
I am strong, I am born of woman and man
My flesh is their flesh
My Spirit my own
From Ocean I rose, to Earth I will fall
I am Daughter and Mother and Maiden and Crone

Love of the Lady alive in my heart
I ask for her wisdom in my word and my deed
Bring beauty and goodness to all that I do
Shine light in my darkness as I follow the creed

Timeless the moment and ancient the Craft
As turning and spinning I gather my will
Binding the threads of my spell to my purpose
Always for goodness and never for ill
Track Name: Song of Amergin
I am the wind on the sea.
I am the ocean wave.
I am the raging torrent
I am the murmur of the brook.

I am the soaring hawk.
I am the gentle deer
I am the raging Boar
I am the salmon in the deep pool

Who knows the ages of the moon, who, if not I.
Who has been to where the sun sleeps, who, if not I
Who touches the stars and knows their song
Who, if not I.

I am the leveller of mountains
I am the raging storm
I am the victor and fallen
I am the Awen that fires your mind

I am the dew in the sunlight.
I am the fairest of flowers.
I am the mightiest of trees
I am the meaning of the Earth Song.

Who knows the ages of the moon, who, if not I.
Who has been to where the sun sleeps, who, if not I
Who touches the stars and knows their song
Who, if not I.
Track Name: A Blessing
May the Sun bring you
New energy by day
May the Moon softly
Restore you by night

May the Rain wash away your worries
May the Breeze blow new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the World
And know its beauty
All the days of your life

May the Earth bring you
Peace in your heart by day
May the Stars gently
Bless your dreams by night

May the Rain wash away your worries
May the Breeze blow new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the World
And know its beauty
All the days of your life
Track Name: Song of Albion
I walk the hills and valleys
In dreams of ancient days
And stand in sacred Circles
Where now the children play
The Spirits of this Land
Walk beside me hand in hand
In the echo of their voices
Is the song of Albion

(Chorus)
Oh God of the Sun
Light my path as I run
O’er the gentle hills of my home
Nowhere but here
Is your song so clear
Albion deep in my bones

I will run with the wolves
With eagles I will fly
And wake the sleeping Gods
Where ‘neath the hills they lie
From mountains and the forests
Through the valleys to the sea
We will sing the song of Albion
And set our Spirits free

(Chorus)

This Land of deep Magic
Now lost far from our sight
I walk your paths in dreams
In the dark still of the night
So ancient are your truths
Of this land of Gods and Fae
You will live long in my Spirit
Until the end of days

(Chorus)
Track Name: Dance the Circle
Lord of Sky, Fire and Light
Cast on us your Blessings Bright
Warm the earth, wake the seed
Corn grow strong so all may feed

Chorus
Dance the circle, year eternal
Round the fire a’burning
Merry meet and merry part
Through the year a’turning

Lady of the rain and earth
Mother all you know our worth
Blessed Lady hear our call
Guard us, guide us, love us all

Circle cast, hand in hand
Welcome Spirits Bless our Land
All now past and yet to be
Welcome all to dance with me

Join the circle, dance with me
Circle round and Blessed be
Earth and Water, Fire and Air
Praise the Lord and Lady fair
Track Name: Sweet River Flow
Once was the time I could see so clearly
Knowing the way that my life would be
Living my dreams, no cares for tomorrow
Time passing by meant nothing to me

(Chorus)
Oh Sweet River Flow and carry me
Down from the Mountains and on to the Sea

Love passed me by and I didn’t notice
A whisper of promise just not meant to be
I danced alone to the song of the Sunrise
Each golden day a blessing to me

(Chorus)

Years come and go and my days grow weary
Moments forgotten return in my dreams
Warm summer days that went on for ever
Places and people in my life I’ve seen

(Chorus)
Track Name: Where Ocean meets the Sky
I walk the time-worn causeway
Past reeds and limpid pools
Where once the wandering hunter paused
At Curlew’s haunting call

To Tide-line strewn with stories
Of fair and distant Lands
My footstep light I leave no trace
On ever shifting Sands

At ancient Henge in circle raised
Above the brooding Fens
In shadowed mists I bow to those
Veiled from the sight of men

I find my trance and welcome call
To those who danced before
Together we are spirit joined
As one we guard the Lore

Our sense of place and purpose strong
We join now hand in hand
In circle dance our ancient chant
Casts blessings on our Land

And now I sleep and in my dreams
With soaring gulls I fly
Across the dunes to lonely Fen
Where Ocean meets the Sky
Track Name: Handfasting Blessing
I call Spirits of the Air
You who’s Breath of Life we share
And the Power of living Earth to nourish you
Summon Spirits of the Sea for Bright Waters unity
I call forth the power of Fire for passion’s Flame

Bless this day our loving Rite
As we here two souls unite
May this binding of their lives and love endure

Like a Star should your Love
Always fair and constant be
Like the Earth your love should firm and fruitful be
Understanding and possessing
Through life's trials and celebrations
Shall the light of love shine brightly in your hearts

May the Gods from far and near
And from ancient times appear
At this time and place our loving Circle join

Bless this day our loving Rite
As we here two souls unite
May this binding of their lives and love endure
May this love endure
Track Name: Fly High
Can you tell me why you are leaving
As the leaves now fall to the ground
Do you hear the call of a distant land
Feel the seasons turning round
See the promise of the Winter in the wind

Chorus
Fly High, Be Strong
I’ll miss your Summer Song
Fly High, Be Free
On the gentle breeze of Spring return to me

Can you tell me where you are going
As your song fades to echoes in the night
Do you follow the signs I cannot see
Over the mountains and storm swept seas
See the promise of the Summer in star light

(Chorus)

Can you tell me when you’ll return
As the snow now thaws on the ground
Will you hear my call from a distant land
Feel the seasons turning round
See the promise of the Spring in the wind

(Chorus)
