Litany to Gaia

Well-honored Gaia, whose name is praised in every
land, whose voice is heard in dreams of prophecy,
whose vengeance falls upon the murderer, who bears
the weight of sorrow with serenity and strength,
I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Broad-bosomed Gaia, granter of the gift of life
to all who dwell on the green earth. mother of many,
of Titans and giants, all your children bound
to you by love, O Gaia of the great heart.
I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Gaia, companion of the Karpoi, those spirits
of fruit and grain who play at your feet, who dance
on the rich dark soil, who turn up their faces
in the warm soft rain, who take joy in the harvest.
I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Gaia on whom the oaths of men and women are sworn
with solemn words and honest hearts, Gaia who sees
all actions, who witnesses all vows, who rewards
the upright and punishes the faithless. Gaia,
I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.

Blessed Gaia who arose from formless Chaos,
bringer of order whose being and body
are held in common among all the far-flung realms,
whose spirit lies in all whose lives you hold in hand,
I praise and honor you, I thank you for your blessings.
