Michelle Mays: Music

Fireleap

(Michelle Mays)
2005
Michelle Mays, inspired by the old traditional Chant
Inspired by a traditional chant for leaping the fires of Spring. Updated and totally redone as a new song, New lyrics- new music, with a hint of the old traditional chant-to serve the magic of Spring in these modern times.

The age old custom of leaping the fire is very much like a prayer. As you leap the fire with all your might, you call out your wish for your life and for the life of all things.
Most of us have heard the Nursery rhyme...Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the Candlestick. Jack was jumping the fires of Spring!
May all of our wishes for the nurturing of our lives and all life on this planet, be fulfilled.
Take the flame inside you, Burn and burn for me,
Fire seed and Fire feed and make my spirit see.

Take the flame inside you, burn and burn so bright
Fire seed and fire feed, to bring my hearts delight.

Take the flame inside you, Burn and burn with stealth,
Fire seed and fire feed, to fill me with good health.

Take the flame inside you, burn away the muck,
Fire seed and fire feed to bring me good luck.

Take the flame inside you, Burn and burn with Tilth,
Fire seed and fire feed, fill my life with wealth.

Take the flame inside you, and Burn so mightily,
Fire seed and fire feed, Hold safe my family.
Take the flame inside you, burn and burn belay,
Fire seed and fire feed, and make the goodness stay.
Take the flame inside you, burn and burn belong,
Fire seed and fire feed, and make my magic strong.

Take the flame inside you, Burn for Mother Earth
Fire seed and fire feed, She is our place of birth.

Take the flame inside you, make all fighting cease,
Fire seed and fire feed, bring to us World Peace.

Take the flame inside you, help us all to see,
Fire seed and fire feed, Peace begins with me.

Take the flame inside you burn and burn awry,
Fire seed and fire feed, for all goodness apply.

Take the flame inside you, burn and burn below,
Fire seed and fire feed, help our spirits grow!
