The Night is cold and Oh so long, for the lady has grown old and the god has long since died
But I learn there is reason for Hope, for there is newly born a child.
The Lord of the Sun has returned
Oh, Powers of Air, I seek the newborn child. Is he within your realm?
The powers of Air answer: Follow the Star to the Hidden cave
Oh Powers of Fire, I seek the newborn child. Is he within your realm?
The powers of Fire answer: Follow the Star to the Hidden Cave
Oh, Powers of Water, I seek the newborn child. Is he within your realm?
The powers of Water answer: Follow the star to the Hidden Cave.
Oh Powers of Earth, I seek the newborn child. Is he within your realm?
The powers of Earth answer: Follow the star to the hidden cave.
I have searched everywhere for the Newborn child. Yet, I have found him not.
Behold! the Great Mother speaks words of wisdom;
"Seek the Holy Child of Light within the hidden cave of your heart. Forever is he there and not without"
I have now found the Newborn child. He lives within me, and will soon reawaken the earth.
All praise and honor the Lord of Light. All praise and honor the Lady and Her consort.
So mote it be.
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
