We Are a Circle

Poet/Lyricist: 

Music & Lyrics by Rick Hamouris

In earth and nature based spiritual traditions such as Native American and contemporary Wicca, honoring the directions or "casting" a circle is an important opening ritual. This arrangement of Rick Hamouris' “We Are a Circle” is a highly rhythmic and energizing piece that would be a rousing concert opener.

We Are a Circle

We are a circle within a circle
with no beginning, and never ending.

You hear us sing, you hear us cry, 

now hear us call you, spirits of Air and Sky.

Inside our hearts there glows a spark, 

love and desire, a burning Fire

Within our blood, within our tears, 

There lies the altar of living water.

Take our fear, take our pain

Take the darkness into the Earth again.

The circle closes between two worlds
To mark this sacred space where we come face to face.

We are a circle within a circle
with no beginning, and never ending.
