Maiden Song

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

Sister, keep the hearth fire burning
Sister, hang the lantern bright.
Sister, Iím away from home
And I think of you tonight.

Sister, keep the hearth fire burning
Sister, hang the lantern bright.
Sister, sing your maiden song
To guide me home tonight.

Sing your maiden song
With voice so pure and sweet.
Sing your maiden song
To guide my weary feet.

Sister, feel our fatherís anger
Sister, drink our motherís tears
Sister, see the lonely road
I have traveled all these years.

Keep the hearth fire burning in the sacred place.
Keep the lantern shining in the night.
Holy Lady, sister to the deities,
Bring this traveler home again tonight.

Sing your maiden song,
Though child you are no more.
Sing your maiden song,
To guide me to your door.

Sister, keep the hearth fire burning
Sister, hang the lantern bright.
Sister, sing your maiden song
To guide me home tonight.
