A chant to be used after casting the Circle to call the Goddess and God

The Witches Rune.
Gerald Gardener & Doreen Valentine
Darksome Night and shining Moon,
East then South, then West then North,
Harken to the Witches Rune,
Here I come to call thee forth.
Queen of Heaven, Queen of Hell,
With Horned Hunter of the night,
Lend your Power unto my Spell,
Work my Will by Magick Rite.
By all the Power of Land and Sea,
By all the might of Moon and Sun,
As I do Will so mote it be,
Chant the Spell and it be done:
(Chant the following thrice)
Ecko, Ecko Azerak,
Ecko, Ecko Zomelak,
Ecko, Ecko Cernunnos,
Ecko, Ecko Aradia.
Since the inception of Gardenerian Wicca and the subsequent writing of the Of Shadows that served the Coven Gerald Gardener & Doreen Valentine founded The Witches Rune has been rewritten/reinterpreted countless times. The version I have presented here has proven to be the most accurate, concise and effective for me personally, please (as with all things Craft Related) feel free to edit, add or change it to what Feels right for you.
