Words to some of the Dances we may do

One Bread, One Body, One Lord of All
One cup of blessing which we share
And we, though many, Throughout the Earth,
We are one body in this One Lord.

Southern Gospel

This little light of mine - I'm gonna let it shine (3x) Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

From Lila

Shakur Allah Shakur, Allah Allah (whispered)
Shakur Allah shakur, Allah Allah
Shakur Allah shakur, Allah Allah
Shakur Allah Allah

Each breath I take is through Thy Grace 3x
Each breath I take is through Thy Grace

Shakur Allah, Shakur Allah, Shakur allah allah 4x


It's always there, you only need to ask
It's always there, you only need to call

From heaven pours the light, Into the heart of all
From heaven pours the light, Into the heart of all

Govinda Jaya Jaya, Gopala Jaya Jaya
Radha Ramana Hare, Govinda Jaya Jaya
Govinda Jaya Jaya, Gopala Jaya Jaya
Radha Ramana Hare, Govinda Jaya

From heaven pours the light Into the heart of all
From heaven pours the light Into the heart of all


From Allaudin

Freely give, freely receive
Freely give, freely receive
Hand in hand to a hand in need
Freely give, freely receive
Do what you can, plant a seed
Freely give, freely receive

Alleluia Alleluia, Alleluia Allelu


Ancestors, sky people all here today
Hear my heartsong, hear my respect, Hear my love.
Hear my grateful tears fall.
I am truly blessed.
You are truly blessed.
We are truly blessed.


"Moravian Blessing"

Be present at our table Lord.
Be here and everywhere adored.
From Thine all-bounteous hand, our food
May we receive with gratitude.
