Deck The Halls


Deck the hall with boughs of holly Fa la la, etc.
Tis the season to be jolly
Don we now our gay apparel
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol
See the blazing Yule before us
Strike the harp and join the chorus
Follow me in merry measure
While I tell of Yuletide treasure

Fast away the old year passes
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses
Sing we joyous all together
Heedless of the wind and weather.

Silent Night

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!

Glory to the New Born King

Brothers, sisters, come and sing
Glory to the new-born King!
Gardens peaceful, forests wild
Celebrate the Winter Child!
Now the time of growing starts!
Joyful hands and joyful hearts!
Cheer the Yule log as it burns!
For once again, the Sun returns!
Brothers, sisters, come and sing
Glory to the new-born King!

Brothers, sisters, come and sing
Glory to the newborn Sun
Through the wind and dark of night
Celebrate the coming Light!
Suns glad rays through fear's cold burns,
Life through Death the Wheel now turns!
Gather round Yule log and tree
Celebrate Life's mystery
Brothers, sisters, come and sing
Glory to the newborn Sun!

Gods Rest Ye Merry Pagan Folk

Gods rest ye merry Pagan folk
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that the Suns 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 Light has come
Let Earth receiver her Lord
Let every heart, prepare Him room
And Heaven and Nature sing
And Heaven and Nature sing
And He-av'n and Nature sing!

Welcome our Lord, who brings us Light
Our Lady gives him birth!
His Living Light, to warm our hearts,
And wake the sleeping Earth
And wake the sleeping Earth
And wa-a-ke the sleeping Earth!

Light we the fires to greet our Lord
Our Light, our Life, our Lord!
Let every voice, sing holy praise
And Heaven and Nature sing
And Heaven and Nature sing
And He-av'n and Nature sing!
