Some asked for the lyrics to the song I wrote for the Rapture of the Star Goddess ritual, performed at Pantheacon this past Sunday, and so I present them below. It was an exhilarating (and terrifying!) experience for me... at one point I entered more deeply into a pre-possesory state than I had intended and trailed off, forgetting my lines. But thankfully I picked them up again and finished. I posted a picture on my Facebook Page of myself in costume from immediately following the rite. You can tell that I am tranced-out of my gourd even then. :)
I Am (the Peacock Lord)

I am... the first-born of Her light
Who ushers... forth the day from night
Bear witness to my starry might
And join my grand seduction!
Now hearken you unto my song
Of life within destruction…
I am... the serpent in the well
Who rises... up to conquer hell
Calling heaven down upon the earth
And as the stars do fall…
My precious jewels reside in thee
Rise and hear my call!
Mine is... the path of sacred love
the serpent... twining with the dove
And as below so is above
All life in your reflection!
For each of you I’m in your heart
Your beauty-flawed perfection!
I am... the lust that rises high
into the... heavens beyond the sky
who dares to stand proud without shame
And as the sun does rise…
A new day dawns in paradise
And met with joyous cry…
I am beauty, I am pride!
I am the light that never hides!
I am the power without shame!
Holy power, yours to claim!
As we sing the universe
In concert with us now affirms
This sacred light within our hearts
Never dies, never departs
So we sing together now
to call that love and power down
within our blood, within our bones
the song that’s calling us… home…
