The Witches Rune

The Witches' Rune
by Doreen Valiente

    Darksome night and shining moon,
    Hearken to the witches' rune.
    East, then south, west then north,
    I come here to call thee forth.
    Earth and water, air and fire,
    Work ye unto my desire.
    Wand and Pentacle, Cup and Sword,
    Hearken ye unto my word.
    Cords and Censer, Scourge and Knife,
    Waken all ye into life.
    Powers of the Witches Blade,
    Come ye as the charm is made.
    Queen of Heaven, Queen of Hell,
    Lend your aid unto the spell.
    Horned Hunter of the Night,
    Work my will by Magick rite.
    By all the power of land and sea,
    As I do will, so mote it be.
    By all the might of moon and sun,
    Chant the spell and be it done.

The Witches' Rune
(Alt. Version)

    Come ye as the charm is made!
    Queen of heaven, Queen of hell,
    Horned Hunter of the night
    Lend your power unto the spell,
    And work our will by Magick rite!
    By all the power of land and sea,
    By all the might of moon and sun
    I call the Earth to bind my spell.
    Air to speed it well.
    Bright as Fire shall it glow.
    Deep as tide of Water flow.
    Count the elements fourfold,
    In the fifth the spell shall hold.
