about

Samhain (“SOW-en”) is the ancient Celtic fire festival that inspired our modern Halloween. It was originally a day to honor loved ones who have passed on and prepare for the coming winter.

lyrics

Light the sacred fires, hold your lover tight
Welcome now the spirits of Old Samhain Night
Light the sacred fires, hold your lover tight
Welcome now the spirits of Old Samhain Night

The veil between the Otherworld
And our plain of mortal
Thins to welcome the ancients ones,
The earth becomes their portal
Let not your heart be heavy,
Let not your head be light
Keep aware and quench you fears
On this Samhain night

Cast a magick circle to protect you from your fears
As we celebrate harvest and the Celtic new year
Come with me into the woods,
Deep in a sacred grove
And dance with me for life and love
As the elements enfold

Chorus

We honor our ancestors,
Loved ones who have passed
We keep them in our memory
With love that always lasts
Tonight they pass the Bridge of Swords
To be with us again
Through the veil of spirit-world into the realm of men

By oak and ash and thorn
We build the sacred fire
We dance until the morn, the smoke it rises higher
Study close the shadows, study close the flame
A voice from long ago may whisper your name

Chorus

We dare not fall asleep
Til the promise of a gentle dawn
Away the spirits creep
Another Samhain come and gone
But we will not forget their loving presence here
Those who've gone before us we'll honor all the year

Chorus

So hold your lover tight
And walk though in a sweet dream
Through Old Samhain Night
Where things are never as they seem

Chorus
