Pagan Chants

Fire, Transform Me

A powerful fire chant written by ALisa Starkweather. I learned it from a friend who went through ALisa's Priestess Path training, and I hope I've remembered it faithfully. It's a great energy-raising chant, especially for magickal workings related to achieving your personal goals, or for any occasion where you want to strengthen your will and self-confidence.

I've never heard it sung with harmony, but I'm sure someone could come up with a lovely descant. I don't really know if this chant works as a round or not - I've never tried. My best guess is that the first part ("Fire, transform me") and the second part ("I choose life") work together nicely, but the third part ("to dance among the flames") is too short to go with them. I guess you could solve that by simply waiting two measures at the end of the third part before you started in again on the first part. Or you could hold the note "flames" twice as long as it's written here, but that kind of breaks up the momentum.

It's recorded on one of ALisa Starkweather's CD "Daughter of the Earth." **Buy here**

Fire, transform me
Bring me to my passion
Fire, transform me
Bring me to my passion
I choose life (Yes!)
I choose courage
I choose life (Yes!)
I choose courage
to dance among the flames
to dance among the flames
