Pour the waters, raise the cup. Drink your share of wisdom deep. Strength and joy now fill us up. As the elder ways we keep. (optional extra verses) When in ancient pagan days, Fire was lit in sacred groves, Powers of the gods did flow, Bringing healing, wit, and love. We in our time likewise go, To the grove our trove to give, To the gods, the dead, the sidhe, And their blessings to receive. So pour the waters, raise the cup. Drink your share of wisdom deep. Strength and joy now fill us up. As the elder ways we keep. (Words and music by Ian Corrigan; Sheet Music) We have audio for a bright version and a dirge version (sometimes used for High Days between Sept and March, the "dark half of the year"). The "bright version" is usually sung as just the first verse, but may include all verses, while the dirge version consists of the first verse only.

May the power of the Kindred be shown to me. May the omens and the blessings be shown through me. May the blessings in the Waters fill my soul. May the wisdom of the Kindred make me whole.Audio File (sung by Melissa Burchfield) Sheet music (pdf file)
