Ishtar, Cerredwyn, Hecate, Inanna,
Isis, Artemis, Sophia, Athena,
Coatilicue, Aphrodite, Mielekki, Astarte,
Gaia, Saraswati, Kali....

She was born in the faith of the Sacred Heart
And the Sacrifice upon the Tree,
And he stood by the faith of the Standing Stone
But their love was destined to be.
When he met her he saw a gold ring she wore,
With an ancient charm it was engraved.
And the first time they parted she read it to him
That his grieving heart might be saved...

The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another,
The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another.

Pie Jesu, pie Jesu qui tollis peccata mundi dona eis requiem....

They were joined in the faith of the Sacred Heart
Though their love was sealed long before,
But he still put his faith in the Standing Stone
And the golden rings they both wore.
On the outside they were plain, as tradition ordained
That such rings no adornment must bear,
But tight against their skins was the ancient charm
And a promise their two hearts could share...

The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another,
The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another.

Agnus Dei, agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi dona eis requiem....

So whether your faith is in the Sacred Heart
Or the Crescent, the Wheel or the Way,
There's a truth for you in that ancient charm
That can still have meaning today.
For the power of Love is much stronger above
Than all the faiths mankind can conceive,
And you'll never be far from the ones you love
If you can say these words and believe...

Ave Maria...ave Maria...

The Lord watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another,
The Lady watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another.
The Gods watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another,
The Prophets watch between me and thee while we are absent one from another.

Pie Jesu, pie Jesu qui tollis peccata mundi dona eis requiem....
