Teaching Children the Old Songs

Thursday, April 24, 2008
Now while I am not a believer in the idea that there are unbroken lines of witches that go back for thousands of years, I do believe in the power of chants. I covered in an earlier post how to make simple drums and rattles for children. So here is an opportunity for you all to use those instruments.
The actual beats used really don't matter, the Gods know your intentions and that is all that matters.

Goddess Chant

Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali

We all come from the Goddess by Z. Budapest and Ian Corrigan

We all come from the Goddess
and to her we shall return
like a drop of rain
flowing to the ocean.

Hoof and horn, hoof and horn
All that dies shall be reborn
Corn and grain, corn and grain
All that falls shall rise again

The River is Flowing by Diana Hildebrand-Hull

The river she is flowing
flowing and growing
The river she is flowing
down to the sea
Mother, carry me
Your child I will always be
Mother, carry me
down to the sea

These are just some of the chants that are popular in the Pagan Community. Here is a link that has these and others with sheet music and midi sound files.

Blessed Be and Happy Chanting!
