Welcome to





The Charge Of The God

Listen to the Words of the Horned God,

Who was of old called among men:

Adonis, Tammuz, Dianus, Herne,

Bran, Beli, Lugh, Gwyn,

Dionysus, Osiris, Cernunnos, Pan,

And by many other Names.


O Secret of Secrets,

That art hidden in the being of all that lives,

Not Thee do we adore,

For That which adoreth is also Thou.

Thou art That, and That am I.


I am the Flame that burns in the heart of every being,

And in the core of every Star.

I am Life, and the Giver of Life,

Yet therefore is the Knowledge of Me

The Knowledge of Death and Resurrection.


I am alone, the Lord within ourselves,

Whose Name is Mystery of Mysteries.

I am the Horned God.


I am the Lord of the Universe,

The Father of all living,

The All-Devourer and the All-Begetter.


I am He Whose Seed lies strewn

As glittering Gems across velvet darkness

Within the Womb of the Mother.


I am the Lord of the Shadows

In the darkness of the Underworld,

For I am the Midnight Sun.


I am the Light of the Stars,

And the Spark of the Spirit Eternal,

For I am the God Within.


I am the Horned Leader of the Hosts of Air,

The Leader of the Wild Hunt,

The Judge of Gods and of Men.


I am the Hidden God,

Who ever yet remains,

For I dwell within the secret seed.


I am the seed of grain,

I am the seed of flesh,

I am the Seed of the Stars.


I am the Lord of the Heights,

I am the Lord of the Depths,

God of forest, of flock, and of field.


I am the Hunter and Hunted,

I am the wolf and the Shepherd,

I am the vine and the grain.


I am a Guiding Star above you,

I am a bright Flame before you,

I am a smooth Path beneath you.


I am the Light of Life.

I am the Flame of Love.

I am the Horned God!
