CHORUS By Fire and by Water, between the Earth and Sky We stand like the World-Tree rooted deep, crowned high. Come we now to the Well, the eye and the mouth of Earth, Come we now to the Well, and silver we bring, Come we now to the Well, the waters of rebirth, Come we now to the Well, together we sing: CHORUS We will kindle a Fire, Bless all, and with harm to none, We will kindle a Fire, and offering pour, We will kindle a Fire, A light 'neath the Moon & Sun, We will kindle a fire, our spirits will soar. CHORUS Gather we at the Tree, the root & the crown of all, Gather we at the Tree, Below & above, Gather we at the Tree, Together we make our call, Gather we at the Tree, In wisdom & love. CHORUS (with gusto) (Words and music by Ian Corrigan ©Stonecreed Grove, ADF) [Audio Clip] [Sheet Music]
