Sacred Music: The Sound of All of Us

Posted by on January 19, 2014 in Family, Friendship, Poetry, Sacred Music, women | 4 comments

Lately I’ve been meditating about belonging to the tribe of humanity: sisters and brothers, all traveling in a foreign land, all a little lonely for home and for each other. This song reminds me that together we are the voice of God. And that feels a little like home.

 

The Wailin’ Jennys singing One Voice

This is the sound of one voice
One spirit, one voice
The sound of one who makes a choice
This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of voices two
The sound of me singing with you
Helping each other to make it through
This is the sound of voices two

This is the sound of voices three
Singing together in harmony
Surrendering to the mystery
This is the sound of voices three

This is the sound of all of us
Singing with love and the will to trust
Leave the rest behind it’ll turn to dust
This is the sound of all of us

This is the sound of one voice
One people, one voice
A song for every one of us
This is the sound of one voice

    “All a little lonely for home and for each other.” Yeah. Music and poetry and stories are ways we try to fill that loneliness.

    • Exactly, Em. Thanks for noting that.
