CHILDREN OF THE SEVENTH GENERATION

Song Lyrics

Chant...

We are the children of the seventh generation
Will you hear our voices
Will you hear our voices
You must awaken

We danced upon the sacred spiral
Of those who came before us
Now we are born to you
We bring the truth
We are the children of the seventh generation

Chant...

We are the song
From the center of the universal ohm
Do you feel our vibration
The sacred vibration
We are the children of the seventh generation

Chant...

We are the children of the seventh generation
Now we are born to you
We bring the truth
We are the children of the seventh generation

DIVINE HOLY BREATH

Song Lyrics

Ohm...

Divine holy breath of my being
Mother of life I behold
I am lived by your endless mystery
Sacred heart where I roam

Ohm....

The light of your flame burns within me
Illumines me now through all time
What has gone before
What is yet to come
In one sacred moment
One sacred moment
In one sacred moment dancing free

Holy Mother embrace me in your love
Holy Father descending from above
Uniting in blissful harmony
Uniting in blissful harmony

(Sacred sounds....One sacred moment)

Holy Mother embrace me in your love
Holy Father descending from above
Uniting in blissful harmony
Uniting in blissful harmony

Ohm...

Taste now the essence of your life
Sweet holy nectar of your soul
What has gone before
What is yet to come
In one sacred moment
One sacred moment
In one sacred moment is known

Ohm...

ANGELS GATHER NEAR ME NOW

Song Lyrics

Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you
Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you

Shine your light through this window of my mind
That I may know what's true
Shine your light through this window of my mind
That I may know what's true

Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you
Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you

Shine your love through this window of my heart
That I may learn to forgive
Shine your love through this window of my heart
That I may learn to forgive

Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you
Angels gather near me now
I am calling to you

Give me courage
Give me strength
That I may do what needs done

Give me courage
Give me strength
That I may do what needs done

Father-Mother God within me
Gift of holy grail
Sacred breath of life is given
Lifting of the veil

Dancing round and singing sweetly
Thankful now am I
Embraced by healing love completely
On angels wings I fly
On angels wings I fly

Angels gather near me now
Angels gather near me now

Father-Mother God within me
Gift of holy grail
Sacred breath of life is given...
