The Mill Chant

Air breath and air blow
Make the mill of magick grow
Work the will for which I pray,
Eo Deo Ha Hay Yay.
Fire flame and fire burn
Make the mill of magick turn
Work the will for which I pray,
Eo Deo Ha Hay Yay.
Water heat and water boil
Make the mill of magick toil
Work the will for which I pray,
Eo Deo Ha Hay Yay.
Earth without and Earth within
Make the mill of magick spin
Work the will for which I pray,
Eo Deo Ha Hay Yay.

For I am calling you.

You loved so that I may live.
I see your face in mine and know you are with me.
