Starting in the Center, then walking:
"This night, this night, Every night and all;
Power and might of dark and light, Come answer to our call."

East (Air):
"Queen Above, Below as well, Every night and all;
Listen as we strike your bell, Come answer to our call."

Walking to South:
"Silver Huntress of the night, Every night and all;
Put the evil ones to flight, Come answer to our call."

South (Fire):
"Lord of Lust, warrior fell, Every night and all;
Lend Your aid unto the spell, Come answer to our call."

Walking to West:
"Golden Starlord of the Flame, Every night and all;
Your children from You warding claim, Come answer to our call."

West (Water):
"Ancestors beneath the seas, Every night and all;
Guard your sacred mysteries, Come answer to our call."

Walking to North:
"Ye who to the Gods are bound, Every night and all;
Make the circle strong and sound, Come answer to our call."

"Midnight sun and midday moon, Every night and all;
Harken to the ancient tune, Come answer to our call."

Walking to East:
"East and South, then West and North, Every night and all;
Your people sing to call ye forth, Come answer to our call."

Turning in the Center:
"By fertile Earth, blue Water fair, Every night and all;
By rushing Fire, and whirling Air, Come answer to our call.
By Your sacred names revealed, Every night and all;
Your circle now is cast and sealed, Come answer to our call."

Closing

Turning in the Center:
"This night, this night, Ye answered to our call;
Power and might of dark and light — Farewell unto ye all!

Lady of the Moon and Lord of the Sun, Ye answered to our call;
Our thanks to Thee, our magic's done. Farewell unto ye all!

Earth and water, fire and air, Ye answered to our call;
We bless thee for thy love and care. Farewell unto ye all!

Merry meet and merry part, Ye answered to our call;
In love and trust, by magic's art. Farewell unto ye all!

This night, this night, Ye answered to our call;
Power and might of dark and light — Farewell unto ye all!"
