Tawa'ubastmut This song is powerful and I can feel my mother Bast-Mut through the lyrics. It sends a warmth through me to listen to it.

lyrics

Know me as I am; I am Ageless
The Lady in the sun upon the dune
Know me and rely, that my ever brilliant eye
Keeps watch o’er all my Children do.

See me as I am; I am Mother
Wrapped in feline fur and shadowed skin
See me and take care, for I shall always be there:
Guarding those I claim as kin.

Feel me as I am; I am Fire
The passion of all love that’s ever been
Feel me as the song you’ve been singing all along
Never knowing you had Bast within.

You’ve Bast within, blessed cat-child
You are sacred, know your worth!
Find your strength within the darkest wilds,
Hunt your dreams across the earth.

You have known me in the bleakest night
Felt flame pulse through your heart
Fiery cat-child claw with all your might
And rip your bonds apart.

Take me as I am; I am Warrior
Though fangs I bear instead of sword or shield
Take me as the blade that your inner light has made
And the power of belief you’ll wield

Live me as I am; I am Wild
Unafraid to walk as cat as well as man
Live me and break free from the chains they’ve placed on thee
Stalk your heart back to the feral lands.

Sing me as I am; I am Goddess
The source of tales recited far and wide
Oh the stories they shall tell; but they’ll sing of you as well
The One who lived as Bast inside.

You’ve Bast within, blessed cat-child
You are sacred, know your worth!
Find your strength within the darkest wilds,
Hunt your dreams across the earth.

You have known me in the bleakest night
Felt flame pulse through your heart
Fiery cat-child claw with all your might
And rip your bonds apart.
