Lyrics:

Oh, the rising of the sun

 And the running of the deer

The shining of the winter stars

As the longer days draw near.

Chorus

The holly and the ivy, In the forest side by side,

The Lady and the Horned One Together shall abide.

 The leaping of the cauldron And the dancing by its light.

The singing of the Solstice songs To celebrate this night.

Chorus

Our Lady is the Goddess Who brings us joy on Earth.

Let us dance around her circle, The circle of rebirth.

Chorus

Tonight is cold and dark But tomorrow we shall see,

The coming of the Sun-King In light and majesty.

Chorus

The moon is riding high, Tis the winter of the year.

Come sit by the fire and join us Share the comfort and good cheer

Chorus

Out of darkness comes the dawning Out of Winter comes the Spring

We sing and welcome back the light Celebrate the year's turning

Chorus
