The Mabon

(Damh the Bard)

With this song I wanted to capture the animalistic, and wild aspects of the Pagan paths. I was picturing the night of the Winter Solstice, when all over the planet Pagans gather to celebrate the rebirth of the Sun Child, the Mabon. I also wanted to give a feel that he, too, was watching us……

Twisting shapes in the moonlight,
I hear the rhythm of the distant Pagan drums,
Within the hills,
Shadows dance in the sunlight,
I feel the power of the wise and ancient ones,
Now I must go.

(Climb)
Beyond the world we see,
Where Spirit runs with bull and stallion,
Cross Earth and Sky and Sea,
The Mabon I shall be.

(Chorus)
By Earth and Water, Air and Fire,
With blood and spirit and desire,
A fire in my head I will wear the antlered crown.

Fires burning at midnight,
Across the world I hear my story being told,
Father and Son.
Chanting voices at midnight,
Are singing songs about the power that I hold,
The newborn Sun.

(Climb)
Beyond the world we see,
Where Spirit runs with bull and stallion,
Cross Earth and Sky and Sea,
The Mabon I shall be.

(Chorus)
By Earth and Water, Air and Fire,
With blood and spirit and desire,
A fire in my head I will wear the antlered crown.
And in the forest dance with me,
And in your heart you shall be free,
For I am you, and you shall find,
That you are me.

Shadows cast in the sunlight,
I see my children turn their eyes towards the sky,
Towards the Sun.
Dawn of life in the sulight,
Mithras, Osiris, Dionysis, Herne and Pan,
We all are one.
