Listen to the words of the God, who is son, brother, lover and consort of the Lady.
I am the fleet deer in the forest, I am the beach which receives the waves. I am the sun which warms the earth. I am the Lord of the Spiral Dance of Life, Death and Rebirth, the gentle Reaper, the Winter Stag and the Spring Fawn.
All things are of Me for I am of the Goddess, opposite, yet not opposing.
I bring forth from the womb that is a tomb, for I am the seed which fertilizes. I am abundant life, for I am the grain that grows and I am death, the harvest in the fall. And I am rebirth after darkness, for I am the seed that springs forth anew. I am fertility, the spreader of life, and I am the Lord of Death which adds value to life. I am the Guardian of the gate between life and death.
I am the King of the underworld, where no living being may venture, but I am also the King of rebirth, turning the tomb into a womb.
I bring love and strength, peace and passion, hope and joy, for I am the gentle lover in the night. All that comes from the Great Mother, the Divine Star Goddess, who is Mother of us all.
