Appendix G

PaGaian Joy to the World

(for Winter Solstice ritual referred to in Chapter 7)

Joy to the World
The light returns
Let All receive Her Love

CHORUS:
Let every Heart
Let every tongue
Repeat the sounding Joy
Repeat the sounding Joy
Let Creatures, and all of Nature sing

She moves the stars
With Her Desire1
Let All receive Her Power

She grows the seed
With all Her Love
Let All receive Her Wisdom

She lights our Hearts
She grows our food
Let All receive Her Joy

Joy to the World
The Light returns
Let All receive Her Love

These words may be sung to the tune of “Joy to the World”.

1 In the paper version of the book the word “might” is used. Upon further thought, I preferred the metaphor of Desire.
