Pagan Chants

The Ocean is the Beginning of the Earth

This is a call-and-response chant (the "II" indicates where the "response" comes in, repeating what was just sung by the "I" part). The "alternate" version is the one I first learned - it works in harmony with the original. If you sing it at the right tempo, this chant goes nicely with the Aphrodite chant ("Strong like the ocean"). You can buy a recording of the original chant on the Reclaiming Chants CD. **Buy here**

The ocean is the beginning of the earth
The ocean is the beginning of the earth
All life comes from the sea
All life comes from the sea

- Delaney Johnson and Starhawk
