This Thread I Weave

"one heart's beat for one great Peace"

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Shirley Erena Murray
Tune Name: PUNGERCAR

Lyrics as Poetry

This thread I weave,
this step I dance,
this stone I carve,
this ball I bounce,
this nail I drive,
this pearl I string,
this flag I wave,
this note I sing,One small part;
one small place;
one heart’s beat;
one great Peace.This pot I shape,
this fire I light,
this fence I leap,
this bone I knit,
this seed I nurse,
this rift I mend,
this child I raise,
this earth I tend,One small part;
one small place;
one heart’s beat;
one great Peace.This cheque I write,
this march I join,
this faith I state,
this truth I sign,
this is small part,
in one small place,
of one heart’s beat,
for one great Peace.One small part;
one small place;
one heart’s beat;
one great Peace.
