Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep

6 seeds sit upon her plate
6 seeds enough to seal her fate.
To bind the Sun the curse to keep.
Now winters come and the Earth does sleep.

Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep.
Dark nights long and snow drifts deep.
Keep hope alive, the spring to seek.
Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep.

The Holy King supreme does rule,
O’er land and sky and sea and all,
His hand extends through darkness deep,
Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep.

They raise a stone to call me back,
Aligned to Sun and Moon and back.
The mysteries of the wheel they seek,
Now winters come and the Earth does sleep.

A circle built upon the plain,
They gather in snow and wind and rain.
Or stand alone on hill sides steep.
Now winters come and the Earth does sleep.

From bone and stone to steel and light,
My people stand and face the night.
To call me back from slumbers deep.
Now winters come and the Earth does sleep.

On that dark morning I will rise,
O’er stone and staff and peoples cries.
The promise of new life I keep.
Now winters come and the Earth does sleep.

Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep.
Dark nights long and snow drifts deep.
Keep hope alive, the spring to seek.
Now Winters come and the Earth does sleep.
