We Are One

honeyIf you haven’t yet treated yourself to the music of Sweet Honey in the Rock, here’s a taste of one of their songs.

We Are One. Yes we are. Namaste

 

 

 

We Are . . .

For each child that’s born

a morning star rises

and sings to the universe

who we are.

We are our grandmothers’ prayers.

We are our grandfathers’ dreamings.

We are the breath of our ancestors.

We are the spirit of God.

We are

Mothers of courage

Fathers of time

Daughters of dust

Sons of great vision.

We are

Sisters of mercy

Brothers of love

Lovers of life and

the builders of nations.

We are

Seekers of truth

Keepers of faith

Makers of peace and

the wisdom of ages.

We are our grandmothers’ prayers.

We are our grandfathers’ dreamings.

We are the breath of our ancestors.

We are the spirit of God.

For each child that’s born

a morning star rises

and sings to the universe

who we are.

WE ARE ONE.
