For those of you who know Emerald Rose, they have a kick-butt song called Freya Shakti which honours the Goddess. You can hear it here. Wispfox brought this song to our attention at Twilight Covening, and we all fell in love with it. After much effort, I finally created the “Gods” version. The name Herne is pronounced “HERN-ah”, Atum is “AH-toom”, Cernunnos is “kerr-NU-nos” and Mananan Mac Lir is “ma-NAN-on mac leer” — Lorelei Greenwood

Herne, Odin, Atum, Cernunnos,
Visnu, Zeus, Mananan Mac Lir
Herne, Odin, Atum, Cernunnos,
Visnu, Zeus, Mananan Mac Lir

Chorus:
High, raising up the Horned One,
Oh, fill my soul
High, raising up the spirit
Oh, make me whole

He is the strength of the Sun at the Solstice,
He is the Oak in the acorn seed
Sound of his heart like the thunder of hoofbeats
Call of the spirit of Nature freed
(chorus)

I know a man who is Hunter and Hunted,
Giving his life as the Wheel turns on
He is the grain that is cut for the Harvest,
He is the hope of the newborn Fawn
(chorus)

Herne, Odin, Atum, Cernunnos….
