New Moon Prayer

The world begins in darkness,
and out of darkness springs the light.
The day begins in darkness,
and out of darkness comes the dawn.
The month begins in darkness,
and in the darkness the new moon is born.
The Wise One goes into the darkness,
and returns the Maiden.
Sweet One of the Silver Crescent:
We invoke your presence here.
Come with your fresh love
and purify your people gathered before you;
Resurrect us, cleanse us, make us new.
