My Beloved Home

My heart beats sparkling glacial water
Down from the mountain peaks I marvel
Into a lush valley of sweet fruits and forests
Ah wind, oh breath, gently swaying my trees

Touch my soul, let my feet earth

Once a star I who shine now as just dust
Spun out of a silver web from a past universe
Heaven’s diamond light plants me into the ground
For each is born by the moist rays of the sun

Connect my soul, let your feet earth

Our fingers grasp into the dark rocky land
Our prayers plant new seeds of hope and love
As the clouds cry out with soaking rain
A rainbow flowers upon the horizon

Celebrate my soul, let your feet earth
Upon my beloved home
