    Hallowed is the voice I hear
    Crossing my path on the breath
    Of the seasons as quiet as the
    Whisper of heaven sent songs;

    Your voice keeps me walking
    This path towards completion
    Continuing the transformation
    From flesh and blood to spirit;

    Your words plant serene dreams
    In the meadows of my life never
    Allowing the pains of the world
    To consume my innermost joy;

    Surround me with your songs full
    Of hope and peace so that I can walk
    The land you promised me whence
    I was lost in the midst of my pain;

    Embrace me with your whispers
    That only I can hear when the birds
    Fly by carrying them on their wings
    to the hearts of the lost and weary;

    today I shall clear a place for
    a friend shall visit me with pain
    on their heart looking for a moment’s
    rest from the drudgery of the day

    I shall allow them rest as the voice
    of the one who comforts me speaks
    to them words of tomorrow in the
    midst of their present day sorrows;
