THE WITCHING HOUR

(Sarah Middleton-Woolley & Nigel Smith)

Air, water, fire, earth and spirit
The elements of the craft and of life
Thoughts, emotion, passion, body and soul
Exist within us and on the outside
The alter cloth carefully placed
A hand-written script, a chalice of wine
Candles, incense and the Witches’ blade
Help to create and focus the mind

(Chorus)
Working secretly under the stars
By the blue light of the moon
Casting a circle to protect who we are
Reciting The Witches’ Rune

(Time for raising power, this is the witching hour) x4

The waxing and waning lunar phase
The pentacle beneath the candle light
Safe inside our Sacred Space
We prepare to begin our spells and Rites
With the Rule of Three to bare in mind
We maintain the inner peace we need
The magic we choose is of the positive kind
We strive to follow the Wiccan Rede

(Chorus)
Working secretly under the stars
By the blue light of the moon
Casting a circle to protect who we are
Reciting The Witches’ Rune

(Time for raising power, this is the witching hour) x4

(End bit)
Overlooked by the darkened sky
We perform our rituals in the dead of night
Relaxed, calm, cleansed and clear
Celebrating the wheel of the year
Now is the time for raising power
For this is the witching hour
Now is the time for raising power
For this is the witching hour
