Sing to me of Life, Love, & God
Sing to me of
Life, Love, and God
Sunshine and smiles
the fire dances with life
the air smells sweet
and the Songbird sings of love.
The Great Mother is content
the river flows freely
whilst her daughter chooses flowers for her hair
and the Songbird sings of life.
The redwoods stretch their branches to the heavens
The mountains silently offer their prayers
and the sweetness of life penetrates all
and the Songbird sings of God.
For we all dwell in the heart of God
we can all learn the songs of the Songbird
but we cannot keep her for ourselves
for she sings of the life and love of God,
for all living things, and all this is God.
Sing me a song of life and love
and I will listen with delight
How sweet your song, how tender and soft
Had I not tried to hold you,
I might still be able to hear your song.
Let me sing to you of the God that I know
and see that it is the same.
Would that you again rested on my shoulder
I would not restrain your flight
sing to me sweet sister of life, love, and God.
Let me once more walk in the woods
and laugh and sing of God's perfection.
Let me dwell in the canyons
Let me sit on the mountain peaks
and bathe in the splendor of all that is God.
You're here and gone in the blink of an eye
So precious, so loving and so aloof.
Let me but taste the nectar of your sweet song
and I will not hunger or want,
for I will have fed on the love of God
