The Charge of the (Dark) God
Listen to the words of the Horned God,
the Guardian of all things wild and free,
Keeper of the Gates of Death,
whose Call we all must Heed:
I am the fire within your Heart,
The yearning of your Soul.
I, Hunter of Knowledge, Seeker of the Holy Quest
I, who stand in the darkness, am He whom you call Death.
I, the Consort and Mate of Her whom we adore,
Beconed forth to Thee,
To learn the secrets of Death and Peace,
come thou unto me.
I am corn at harvest and fruit on the trees.
I am He who leads you home.
With Scourge and Flame, Blade and Blood,
these are mine own gifts to thee.
Call unto me in the forest wild and hilltop bare,
and seek me in the Darknest Niight.
I, who have been called;
Pan, Hades, Hermes & Osiris Bright
Speak to thee in thy search, Come to dance and sing;
come live and love; behold this is worshiping.
I, thy Father. You are my children. On swift night wings,
it is I who lay you at the Mother's feet;
to be reborn and to return again to seek .
Know me, I am the untamed wind,
the fury of storm.
Seek me with pride and humility,
and passion in your Soul.
Hear my call on long Winter nights ;
and we shall together guard Earth as She sleeps.
Best seek Ye with love and strength.
My Path, I heed s not the weak.
