Great sun, wheel of fire,…

Today is the Pagan/Wiccan holiday of Yule (No. Hemisphere) and Litha (So. Hemisphere). Today also begins the Hopi & Zuni New Years festival of Soyala.

The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers,
but for the wide world’s joy.
~ Henry Ward Beecher

Great sun, wheel of fire, Ra in your glory,
hear me as I honor you
on this, the shortest day of the year.
Summer has gone, passed us by,
the fields are dead and cold,
all of earth sleeps in your absence.
Even in the darkest times,
you light the way for those who would need a beacon,
of hope, of brightness,
shining in the night.
Winter is here, and colder days coming,
the fields are bare and the livestock thin.
We light these candles in your honor,
that you might gather your strength
and bring life back to the world.
O Ra, mighty sun above us,
we ask you to return, to bring back to us
the light and the warmth of your fire.
Bring life back to earth,
Bring light back to earth.
Hail Ra! Ruler of the sun!
