CHORUS:
Weaver, Weaver weave her thread,
Whole and strong into your web
Healer, Healer, heal her pain,
In love may she return again

VERSES:

We are dark and we are bright
We are formed from earth and light
From joy and pain our lives are spun
But all too soon the spinning ís done

No one knows why we are born
A web is made a web is torn
Like wandering seabirds we alight
And rest one moment then take flight

So may we find the hidden way
Beyond the gates of night and day
To that sweet land where apples grow
And endless healing waters flow

And at that spring may we drink deep
And wake to dream, and die to sleep
And dreaming weave another form
A shining thread of life reborn

Weaver, Weaver weave her thread,
Whole and strong into your web
Healer, Healer, heal her pain,
In love may she return again

We are dark and we are bright
We are formed from earth and light
From joy and pain our lives are spun
But all too soon the spinning ís done

  • 2017 Intention

    Riding the knife's edge of history, we face the great challenge of this present moment; to step off the old path and weave futures of strength and joy with the dead and the generations to come.
