Thanks be to thee, my Lady, for |
Bringing me from the beauty of night
To the gladsome light of this day,
To win love and knowledge and power,
Through understanding your deepest secrets.
Praise be to thee, gracious Goddess,
For the blessings thou didst bestow on me--
My thoughts, my speech, my works, my desires.
* * * * * * * * * * * *
And I charge thee
To shield me from harm,
To ward me from hurt,
To sain me from evil,
To teach me thy mysteries,
O Goddess of all mysteries!
Grant me thy wisdom along with thy magic.
May the Shining Ones claim me,
And protect me on sea and on land,
And lead me on from step to step,
To the counsels of the Four Cities,
The magic of the Four Cities!
