Imblog Chants, prayers and songs


Imbolc Prayer
We’ve made it to the mid-point
of the Winter dark and bleak.
From this day on the Sun
will climb and thaw the
ground and creeks.
Bless us now, oh Maiden fair,
and keep us in your loving care.
Showing signs of new life everywhere
as you awaken from your sleep.

Kindling The Fire
This morning, as I kindle the flame upon my hearth,
I pray that the flame of Brighid may burn in my soul,
and the souls of all I meet today.
I pray that no envy and malice,
no hatred or fear, may smother the flame.
I pray that indifference and apathy, contempt and pride,
may not pour like cold water on the flame.
Instead, may the spark of Brighid light the love in my soul,
that it may burn brightly through the day.
And may I warm those that are lonely,
whose hearts are cold and lifeless,
so that all may know the comfort of Brighid’s love.

Covering The Fire
Brighid, preserve the fire, as You preserve us all.
Brighid, may its warmth remain in our midst, as You are always among us.
Brighid, may it rise to life in the morning, as You raise us to life.

Prayer to Bride
Great Goddess Brigit
I ask for your inspiration
In all my endeavors
Help me to learn new things
Please give me the gifts
Of poetry and creativity
Help me to clean out the old and musty
In my mind and heart
Show me how to make mundane tasks
A joy and Honour to you
Make my hands, my lips, my mind
My heart and my soul, a blessing to you
Forge me into your instrument
That I may be a blessing
To you and the Old Ones
As well as a blessing to all I meet
May they see your love and power in me
Teach me to Honour you in being
A wife, a mother, and keeping a home
I dedicate my life to you
My body, soul, heart, and mind
To your service

The crone wears her shroud of ice proudly
Like and honour she has earned, it cloaks her.

The young and viral Sun
Envelopes her in his loving embrace.

She turns to him and smiles, knowing that the time has come
For him to remove the icy coverlet with his warmth

As it slips away, so do the years upon her face
And in their place the lovely Maiden Spring is found.

A rhyme
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will have another flight
If Candlemas Day be clouds and rain
Winter is gone and will not come again

Come to the Well…
Ease your mind,
Ease your soul
Give up your burdens and laugh at the water

Wash your hands pure with the holy water
Wash your face clean with the Love of God
Let Brigid walk beside you and fill your heart with passion
Come to the Well and drink of Her Love.

Leave all your sorrows
to be washed away
There is always forgiveness
There is always a new start.

Give up your burdens and laugh at the water
The Water will laugh with you.

Look through the darkness and you will see
The spark growing for all to see

To warm the Earth
To warm our souls
The seeds we plant begin to grow

The goals you set and magick worked
Was it all for knowledge, wisdom and mirth?

To help the Gods and your fellow man
To grow strong and to aid your clan

The light of hope begins to stir
Even though snow and ice still occurs

The work that is wrought
Brings the growth that is sought

Just as a seed breaks open underground
Deep in your Spirit these roots are found

But how they will grow is up to you
They grow by way of the things that you choose

We are given a light to bring us warmth
And nourished from Water from the time of our birth
The Earth with big rocks to anchor our lives
And Air to teach us so the Old Ones may guide

The second turn of the Wheel has begun
The God is rising
The Cycle begun
