This classic chant from the Pagan/Wiccan tradition is a live recording from ONE LOVE's performance at the Turning the Wheel concert at the Foundation of Light in Ithaca, NY on October 28, 2011.  We were privileged to have our good friends Dan Yokum sitting in on Bass and Jeffrey Hellman on Percussion.

Lyrics:

We all come from the Goddess, and to Her we shall return

Like drops of rain flowing to the ocean /

Hoof and horn, hoof and horn, all that dies shall be reborn

Corn and grain, corn and grain, all that falls shall rise again /

Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna

Lyrics

Yemaya Assessu Assessu Yemaya Yemaya Olodo Olodo Yemaya

We learned this beautiful song from Deva Premal. Yemaya is the Yoruban Orisha of the living ocean, considered the Mother of All. She is the source of all the waters, especially the River Ogun. As all life is thought to have begun in the sea, all life is held to have begun with Yemaya. She is motherly and strongly protective, and cares deeply for all Her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow.

Lyrics

The Archangels have been honored and invoked in many religious traditions—in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and esoteric magical traditions as well. It is believed that they are God’s messengers, and they also offer us strength, protection, courage, healing, and guidance. There is a Jewish prayer that calls upon four of the archangels to surround us, enveloping in their circle of love and protection:

In the name if the everlasting: May the guidance of the archangel Michael be at my right and the strength of the archangel Gabriel be at our left. May the light of Uriel be before me and the healing arms of the archangel Raphael, behind me.

This chant is inspired by that prayer, simply calling the names of the four angels: Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, Uriel
