Lyrics

More than the Sum

Find the possibility of grace
In the tones and rhythms
Of a simple song
Smooth silky sounds
Transport us for a time
To heaven on earth

Reminding us that we
Are more than the sum
Of the molecules
Of which we are made
And of the physical universe
Of which we are part

One Vision of Grace

Clear solid glass globes cut into halves
Capture sound sequences of music
And words more than dreams
But cannot erase the uncertainty
Of mathematical probability

In an advanced stage of cancer
Searching for hope and answers
Desperate for healing and mercy
Clinging to integrity and faith
This message is for you

From this community of praise
People of all ages and ethnicities
Come together in unity of purpose
Binding different perspectives
Into one vision of grace

Garden of the Almighty

Burglars bring their children to work
As if going to a lynching or picnic
Millions of men women and children
Are raped and terrorized in
Prisons meant to teach and punish


Spiritually and physically damaged
We turn on each other or ourselves
The mechanical arms of community
Grinding mind and body in all tortures
And suffering imaginable under the sun

In the garden of the almighty
Seedlings blindly grasp for air
And sun and seek life grounded
In more than desire and ambition
But as rooted in earth as in heaven

A New Simplicity

Crushed between boulders
Of conflicting responsibilities
We are forced to find another path
As change becomes necessity

Acknowledging my longing
For a now comfortable past
To which we cannot retreat we
Accept the need for transformation

A vision of a new simplicity
Now becomes my guiding hope
First perceived dimly then
With growing clarity
