Yule Songs

I have gotten these from all over the web and though I would share with you

Silent Night

Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
Till in Springtime She wakens again
Sleeping spirits grow strong!
Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent night, Solstice night
Silver moon shining bright
Snowfall blankets the slumbering Earth
Yule fires welcome the Sun’s rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night
Quiet rest till the Light
Turning ever the rolling Wheel
Brings the winter to comfort and heal
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!

Santa Claus is Pagan Too, by Emerald Rose
if you haven’t heard it yet, look for it online and listen!!!

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too, just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch he’ll bring you all the best
So get that star up on the roof, and bake those cookies, too
For Christmas-time is really Yule, and Santa’s Pagan too!

He’s got that Buddha belly and his top’s the Holly King
You dressed him in that British coat, the cap’s a Nordic thing
You took the horns right off his head and stuck them on his deer
But he still flies high like Jupiter with a belly-full of beer!

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too, just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch he’ll bring you all the best
So get that star up on the roof, and bake those cookies, too
For Christmas-time is really Yule, and Santa’s Pagan too!

Now history says Christ was likely not a Capricorn
But if you want to share the Yule, we don’t care when he’s born
Come join the celebration of the Sun King’s bright rebirth
And if you practice what you preach, we’ll all have peace on Earth!

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too, just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch he’ll bring you all the best
So get that star up on the roof, and bake those cookies, too
For Christmas-time is really Yule, and Santa’s Pagan too!

Now Santa’s way more jolly than most Christians might require
And if he weren’t so busy he’d be dancing ’round the fire
Yeah, you can call it Christmas ’cause you got us way out-gunned
But just you wait till Beltane – then we’ll see who’s having fun!

Oh, Santa Claus is Pagan too, just like all the rest
And if you are a merry witch he’ll bring you all the best
So get that star up on the roof, and bake those cookies, too
For Christmas-time is really Yule, and Santa’s Pagan too!!!

to the tune of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry paganfolk,
Let nothing you dismay.
Remember that the Sun returns
Upon this Solstice day.
The growing dark is ending now
And Spring is on its way.

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.

The Goddess rest ye merry too,
And keep you safe from harm.
Remember that we live within
The circle of Her arms!
And may Her love give years to come
A very special charm.

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy!
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy!

Merry Solstice [traditional English, adapted]
We wish you a Merry Solstice, We wish you a Merry Solstice,
We wish you a Merry Solstice, and a Happy New Year!
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin,
We wish you a Merry Solstice, and a Happy New Year!

Deck the Halls [traditional Welsh Yuletide carol]
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
‘Tis the season to be jolly, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la.
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.

See the blazing Yule before us, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
Follow me in merry measure, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la.
While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.

Fast away the old year passes, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.
Sing we joyous all together, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la, Fa-la-la.
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa-la-la-la-la, Fa-la-la-la.

We all come from the Goddess,
and to her we shall return.
Like a drop of rain,
rolling to the ocean.

We all come from the Horned One
and to him we shall return
Like a flash of flame
ascending to the heavens.

Hoof and horn
hoof and horn
every soul shall be reborn

corn and grain
corn and grain

All that falls shall rise again.

Sage and Crone
Sage and Crone
Wisdom’s Gift shall be our own.

Crone and Sage
Crone and Sage
Wisdom is the gift of age.

What Child Is This?
Words by Anie Burke-Webb~~(Greensleeves)

What child is this, who rises now from His Mother’s womb returning
Her children greet most joyously the sight of His face’s bright burning

Chorus:
This, this is the Sun child born, the radiant one, light returning
Born unto the world again, this child, the promise of summer
His growing light returns the warmth that darkness stole from out the Earth
To bud the leaves, and blossoms bring to signal the Spring’s rebirth

Chorus
