We All Come From The Goddess





This little song has made quite a stir in the pagan community. Recently Z Budapest released a statement on Facebook about her copyright of this song. Her threat of casting hexes on anyone using the song with any god phrase in it brought the pagan community full wait on her shoulders. Many were upset that her hex would affect their children as most pagan children have learned some variant of this song. The community voiced their concern on her Facebook page.
The problem I have with this entire situation is the way she handled it. She instantly threatens with a hex cause a male god is being put into her goddess only song. As a predominant member of her wiccan community this is a great let down. We expect more from our pagan leaders. Yes they are human but this was an attack.

Above is a copy of her Facebook post. Her song, Ian Corrigan's verse, additional verse by an unknown author, and the version of the song most of us know it as today so you can compare what the differences are.

This is the original version of the song by Z Budapest:

We all come from the Goddess,
and to Her we shall return
Like a drop of rain
flowing to the ocean.

The male god counterparts of the song she is upset with is written by Ian Corrigan

We all come from the Horned God,
and to Him we shall return
Like a spark of flame-
rising to the heavens.

Hoof and horn, hoof and horn,
all that dies shall be reborn
Corn and grain corn and grain,
all that falls shall rise again!

The third verse that most know this song as, the author is unknown.

Wax and wane, wax and wane
All that dies shall live again

or

The Goddess is alive and magick is afoot!

Here is one of the versions of the song that she is upset over that was used at Samhain Ritual at MTSU.

We all come from the Goddess,
and to Her we shall return
Like a drop of rain
flowing to the ocean.
(Repeat)

Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate,
Demeter, Kali, Innana!
(Repeat)

We all come from the Horned God,
and to Him we shall return
Like a spark of flame-
rising to the heavens.
(Repeat)

Hoof and horn, hoof and horn,
all that dies shall be reborn
Corn and grain corn and grain,
all that falls shall rise again!
(Repeat)

The Goddess is alive and magick is afoot!
The Goddess is alive and magick is afoot!
(Return to beginning)

or this ending is common to:

Wax and wane, wax and wane
All that dies shall live again
(Return to beginning)
