Pagan Yule Songs!

 
Solstice Child
by Lunaea Wetherstone

What child is this who brings such light

that all who see him grow hopeful?
The Solstice candles this longest night
rekindle a flame in our soul.
This, this is the Solstice Child
the Sun God brilliant, the Sun God wild.
Come, come, to hold him near
the hope and the light of the new year.


Silent Night
 by Ellen Reed

Silent night, Solstice night
all is calm, all is bright.
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
till in springtime She wakens again.
Sleeping spirits grow strong.
Sleeping spirits grow strong.

Silent night, Solstice night.
Silver moon, shining bright.
Snowfall blankets the slumbering Earth.
Yule fires welcome the Sun's rebirth.
Hark, the light is reborn!
Hark the light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night.
Quiet rest, till the light.
Turning ever the rolling wheel
brings the winter to comfort and heal.
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!
 
 

Pagans, sing, are you listneing?

altar's set, candle's glisten

it's a magickal night were having tonight,

dincing in a Wiccan world.

 

Blades held high, censur smoking
God and Goddess, we're invoking
Through Elements Five, we celebrate life
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland.

Queen of Heaven, is in Her place
Triple Goddess, the Crone face
Above and below, She's the Goddess we know
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland.

Now the God, He's provider
supplying game, for our fire
Above and Below, He's the Horned one we know
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland.

Later on, by the fire
Cone of Power, gettin higher
It's a magickal night, we're having tonight
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland.

 

   God Rest Ye Merry Pagan Folk

God rest ye merry Pagan folk
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that the sun returns
Upon this solstice day
The growing dark is ended now
And spring is on its way
O, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O, tidings of comfort and joy.

The winter's worst still lies ahead
Fierce tempest, snow and rain
Beneath the blanket on the ground
The spark of life remains
The sun's warm rays caress the seeds
To raise Life's songs again
O, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O, tidings of comfort and joy.

Within the blessed apple lies,
The promise of the Queen
For from this pentacle shall rise
The orchards fresh and green
The Earth shall blossom once again
The air be sweet and clean
O, tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O, tidings of comfort and joy.

 

Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the sun has come
Let earth receive her Lord
Let every heart, prepare them room
And witches and nature sing
And witches and nature sing
And witches and witches and nature sing.

Welcome the Lord, who brings us Light
The Lady gives Him birth
Their warming love, brings joy to our hearts
And wakes the sleeping earth
And wakes the sleeping earth
And wakes the sleeping earth.

 

We light the fires, to greet the Sun
Our light, our life, our Lord
Let every voice, join in with life's song
And merry turns the wheel
And merry turns the wheel
And merry, merry turns the wheel. 

 O, Come All Ye Faithful

O, come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O, come ye, oh, come ye to greet the sun.
Join in the yuletide
turning of the solstice fire
O come let us invoke Him
O come let us invoke Her
O come let us invoke them
Lord of the Light.

 

Yea, King we greet Thee
Born again at Solstice
Yule fire and candle flame, to light your way
Come to thy Lady
Fill the earth with love anew
O come let us invoke Him
O come let us invoke Her
O come let us invoke them
Bride of the Light.

Wiccan Yule Carols


Hark the Neo-Pagans Sing

"Sunblade"
(Tune: hark the herald angels sing)

Hark the Neo Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!
Peace on Earth and mercy mild,
God and Goddess reconciled,
Hear us now as we proclaim,
We have risen from the flames,
Our ancient Craft now we reclaim,
In the God and Goddess' names
Hark the Neo-Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!

Herne by highest love adored,
Herne the ever-reborn Lord,
At all times behold Him come,
Offsring of the Holy One,
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see,
Hail incarnate Deity!
Our ancient Craft we now reclaim,
in the God and Goddess' names
Hark the neo-Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!


Silent Night

"Ellen Reed"

Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
Till the Springtime She wakens again
Sleeping spirits grow strong!
Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent Night, Solstice Night
Silver moon shing bright
Snowflakes blanket the slumbering earth
Yule fires welcome the Sun's rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent Night, Solstice Night
Quiet rest till the Light
Turning every the rolling wheel
Brings the Winter to comfort and heal
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!


Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland!

"Alexander & Aarcher"

Pagans sing, are you listenin'
Alters set, candles glisten,
Its a magical night, we're having tonight
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

Blades held high, censor smoking,
God and Goddess, we're invoking,
Through Elements Five, we celebrate life,
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland,

Queen of Heaven, is in her place,
Triple Goddess, now the Crone face
Above and below, She's the Goddess we know,
Dancing in a wiccan wonderland.

Now the God, is the provider
Supplying game for our fire,
Above and below, He's the Horned one we know,
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland

In a cirle we can burn a yule fire,
And await the rising of the Sun,
It's the great wheel turning for the new year,
loaded with abundance and great fun

Later on, by the fire,
Cone of Power, gettin' higher
Its a Magickal Night, we're having tonight,
Dancing in a Wiccan Wonderland!


Moon of Silver

(We three Kings)

Chorus: Oh, Moon of Silver, Sun of Gold,
Gentle Lady, Lord so bold!
Guide us ever, failing never,
Lead us in the ways of old.

Maiden, Mother, Ancient Crone,
Queen of Heaven on your throne,
Praise we sing thee, love we bring thee,
For all that you have shown.

Lord of Darkness, Lord of Light,
Gentle brother, King of Might,
Praise we sing thee,Love we bring thee
On this Solstice Night.

Just to start the year out right...I just had to add this wonderful old song that is so familiar to everyone...

Auld Lang Syne

Words adapated from a traditional song
by Rabbie Burns (1759-96)
 
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?
 
CHORUS:

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
 
And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!
 
We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.
 
We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.
 
And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

 
 
and just so you never knew what some of those words mean...here ya go!
 
    • auld lang syne literally means "old long ago". Better translation is perhaps "times gone by"
    • be = pay for 
    • braes  =  hills
    • braid  =  broad
    • burn  =  stream
    • dine  =  dinner/ evening time 
    • fiere  =  friend
    • fit  =  foot
    • gowans  =  daisies
    • guid-willie waught  =  goodwill drink
    • monie  =  many
    • morning sun  =  noon
    • paidl't  =  paddled
    • pint-stowp  =  pint tankard
    • pou'd  =  pulled
    • twa  =  two
