lyrics and music by Christopher Bingham

Bone Deep and Sonia had loved this song when Christopher Bingham wrote it and performed it with Gaia Consort (now Bone Poets Orchestra). Chris generously gave Chronilus permission to cover it.


The Rede (An It Harm None)
lyrics by Christopher Bingham

I've been blessed with many lovers and I'd grant the same to you
Though I suppose I'd skip a broken heart or two
I confess that I am troubled by that pious vocal few
When they cross the line and tell us what to do

Ah but life's too short for all this worry, I offer myself to you whole
Oh and life's too long for lies to carry any more weight in this world

An it harm none, do what you will
As the circle has bound us, bound we are still
Though the bottle be empty, may the cup remain filled
An it harm none do what you will

I will call the four directions, I will cast a circle here
I will put my feet upon the holy ground
In the shadow there reflected I will find and face my fear
And we all know there is fear aplenty 'round

Every act of love and pleasure is a prayer along the way
With everything between the living earth and sky
When it's all of life we treasure in our endless spinning days
In our actions they will know us by and by
