Guardians of the watchtowers of the east,
I call upon you powers of air.
Guardians of the watchtowers of the south,
I call upon you powers of fire
Guardians of the watchtowers of the west,
I call upon you powers of water
Guardians of the watchtowers of the north,
I call upon you powers of earth
Witness our rites and guard our circle.

Winds from the east
You herald the spring
Bring us new hope and clear our minds
In the breath of life
A new day will rise
Revive our powers and give us new strength

Winds from the south
The summer you bring
Give us the faith to walk on our ways
The fire within
Brings growth to all things
Open our hearts to bring out our love

We follow the winds
The circle of life
To the powers of the earth we're bound
Yes we're bound - we are bound

Winds from the west
The fall follows you
Let us reap our fruit and bring in our crops
The waters of life
Lead us under the surface
Open our minds to see the truth beneath

Winds from the north
Precursor of winter
Show us the way deep down to the core
In the earth beneath
We find the calm to renew
Give us the peace to start once again

We follow the winds
The circle of life
To the powers of the earth we're bound
Yes we're bound - we are bound
