Prayers For Freedom


Prayers For Freedom 

by S. Nutting

Blessed river, polishing stones, 
She is polishing our hearts, we are claiming our thrones, 
To sit side by side in our awakened homes. 
Love is always watching. Love is always watching.

 

And we're gonna sing, sing, sing our prayers for freedom
Sing, sing, sing our prayers for freedom
Sing, sing, sing our prayers for freedom
Sing our prayers for freedom for all humankind.

 

Medicine giver, gentle spirit of the land
She is polishing our hearts in ways we do not understand
We walk side by side and offer both our hands
Love is always watching
Love is always watching

 

And we're gonna sing...
Sing our prayers for freedom for the land

 

Brothers, sisters, brave pilgrims of the night
We have followed our hearts, and to truth we have arrived
To sit side by side in divinity's light
Love is always watching. Love is always watching

 

And we're gonna sing...
Sing our prayers for freedom for the world.

 


River Run Free 

By K. Longaker

 

How to go about it
How to let this river run free
All the mountains shouting
Free the well of love within me

 

Bow, bow down beside it
Lean into the love of loving
There's no doubt about it
You can bet that river's singing

 

Oh, the will of sorrow
Is to make clean these springs of joy
In this here, now gone tomorrow
We are bound and we have choice

 

Hear that river calling
Calling us into our calling
Wade out in that water
Dream the dream the river's dreaming

 

Oh, the will of sorrow
Is to make clean these springs of joy
In this here, now gone tomorrow
We are bound and we have choice

 


Power of Kindness 

by S. Nutting/K. Longaker
 

Ooh, I believe in the Power of Kindness
Oooh, I believe in the Power of Love
Oooh, I believe in the Power of kindness
Oooh, I believe in the Power of Love

 

We don't know what's coming
We can help shape what's ahead
With Kindness as our currency
The common wealth is in our hands

 

So, give a little, give a little
Give a lot don't stop
A helping hand makes the world go 'round
There's more than enough

 

Oooh, I believe in the Power of Kindness....

 

Listen up now people
Keep your ear to the ground
We are the river flowing
Generosity abounds

 

So, give a little, give a little....
Oooh, I Believe in the Power of Kindness...

 

The honeybee serves sweetness
Only to help the world bloom
Bringing love to flower
From the flower to the fruit
We could learn a thing or two


 


Little Baby 

by S. Nutting

 

Little baby stories for to share around the fire
Little baby worries for to burn upon the pyre
Come on baby, let your love spill out
Baby, let your love spill out

 

Little Baby ears to hear your little baby cares
Little baby tears to wash these, little baby despairs
Baby, let your love spill out
Baby, baby, baby, let your love spill out

 

And all of this is welcome in this heart that's born anew
Curious and open to all that's passing through
Bless these lives, and we do
We are innocent through and through

 

Little baby sadness for a dream that didn't bloom
Little baby visions of a life that's better suited
Come on baby....

 

Little baby meanings ripe and ready to let go
Little baby seedlings to make this garden grow
Baby... 

 

And there are little baby soldiers fighting little baby wars
We got little baby laps to hold these wounded baby boys
And there's magic in the dust and there's medicine on the vine
You're a baby, I'm a baby, we're doing just fine

Come on baby... 

 


Wonder 

By S. Nutting/ K. Longaker
 

Ooh, I wonder
Oooh, I wonder
Oooh, I wonder
What is to come, out of this darkness

 

I've been moving moving moving moving through the darkness...
I wonder when the light is cracking open..

 

I thought this candle had long gone out...
But today today today today I can see
There's still a flickering flickering


Oooh, I wonder...


Burn burn burn burn on the inside
Burn burn burn burning like a bright light
Burn burn burn burn on the inside
This light's still burning, burning bright

 

I thought this candle had long gone out...
but today i can see, there's more than a flickering


 


We Shall Be Known

by K. Longaker
 

We shall be known by the company we keep
By the ones who circle round to tend these fires
We shall be known by the ones who sew and reap
The seeds of change alive from deep within the Earth

 

It is time now
It is time now that we thrive
It is time we lead ourselves into the well
It is time now
And what a time to be alive
In this "Great Turning" we shall learn to lead in love
In this "Great Turning" we shall learn to lead in love


The term "Great Turning is coined by Joanna Macy

Soul Sister 

by K. Longaker

Soul sister
I so believe in you
Soul Sister
Though this water is wide
Oh sister
This grief and pain are true
I am here with you
and I will see you through to the other side

 

Soul Sister
I know the Earth in you
Soul Sister
You are strong and wild
Oh sister
What can I say or do?
I am here with you
And I will see you through to the other side

 

Oh, Hold out your hands
Or crumble to the Earth
Whatever it takes for you to thrive
Your body knows like a river flows
and she will see you through to the other side

 

Souls Sister
I so believe in you
Soul Sister
You are strong and wild
Oh Sister
Whatever you're going through
I am here with you
and I will see you through to the other side

 


Cultivating Place


By K. Longaker and S. Nutting

Commissioned song for Jennifer Jewell
www.cultivatingplace.com/
 

She ain't mine, She ain't yours
She is OURS, to adore
Oh, Home I love you more and more

 

Wilow pine, forest floor
'Mater vine, mushroom Spore
Oh, Home I love you more and more

 

Diggin' diggin' diggin' diggin' down
Pulling each other up
There's enough to go around
Tending this garden with our love

 

Make Beauty wherever I go, make beauty
Make beauty wherever I go, Make beauty

 

Bluebird you come along
Add you color to my pallet of paint
And I know we can do no wrong
When our hands are covered in clay
our hands are covered in clay

 

And in this artistry of love
There is so much space
These fingertips know you're spine
And this body just want to play
Fingertips know your spine
And this body just wants to play

 

Oh, Home, I love you more and more
Make beauty wherever I go, make beauty...
Home, I love you more and more

 

 


I Am Wild

by K. Longaker
 

My heart is wild my hands are wild
My feet are wild my legs are wild
My teeth are wild my breath is wild

 

I AM WILD
 

I am a wild river, I flow I go
You damn me up I change my course
I rush I ripple, I trickle, I tickle
I AM WILD

 

I AM ALWAYS FREE, I AM WILD
I AM ALWAYS FREE, I AM WILD

 

My Dreams are wild my spirit is wild
My story is wild my path is wild
My mother is wild my father is wild

I AM WILD
 

I AM ALWAYS FREE...
 

I run I leap, I stretch I creep,
I nuzzle I nestle, I wrestle I FREAK
I pulse I bite I lick I GROWL

I AM WILD


I AM ALWAYS FREE...
 

My home is here, I'm free I roam
I dare I dance I share my own
I live my heart and I love my bones

I AM WILD

 


Dunk Down

by K. Longaker
 

I'm gonna, Dunk down, down into the river
Gonna, dunk down, all the way down, singin'
Dunk down, down into the river
Gonna let it go all the way down, singin'

 

Oh lord, here I go letting go
Oh lord, here I go letting go
Oh lord, here I go letting go
Letting go all the way down

 

River, river, free and wild
All these knots are comin' untied
River, river, you humble me
Here I come, come wash me clean

 

I'm gonna, dunk down, down into the river...
Oh lord, here i go letting go...

 

River, river wild and free
In thy service help me be
River, river, drink me in
I am ready to begin


 


For Her Speak 

by S.Nutting and K. Longaker, Original spoken word by Lyla June

River wide and river deep
Calls me to her side
To protect and for her speak
Water she says it is time

 

Vast vast oceans
Bubbling creeks
All are friends of mine
From valley floor to mountain peak
Water she says it is time

 

"They say that history is written by the victors,
But how can their be a victor when the war isn't over?
The battle has only just begun
And creator is sending her VERY best warriors
This time it isn't Indians verses cowboys
No, this time it is all the beautiful races of humanity
Together on the SAME SIDE
And we are fighting to replace our fear with LOVE
This time bullets, arrows and cannonballs will not save us
The only weapons that are useful in this battle are the weapons of
TRUTH, of FAITH and COMPASSION" -Lyla June

 

So lay down you weapons I come in peace
To be a stand for life
For all things thrive where water clean
Water she says it is time
For all thing thrive where water is clean
Water she says it is time

 


God's Eyes

by S. Nutting
 

If I could see it through God's eyes
The Earth the Moon the Sun he satellites
Watching somewhere from the darkness
I would admire all I'd created
Even the lines that separate
Oh, for I know there is forgiveness

 

If I could see it through God's eyes
Would I judge or would I cry
Oh, would I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
May we find our way, back to love
May we find our way, back to love

 

If I could see it through God's eyes
Stagnant water and power lines
Oh, would I believe it
If I could see it through God's eyes
This land of broken rock, 
Damns dammed if I wouldn't free it

May water find her way, back to love
May water find her way, back to love

 

Through the dream time into light
Comes a vision through God's eyes
Safe passageways for all creatures
Who swim through sea and soar through sky
Those with fur and those who slither by
Please hold this vision I want to believe it

 

May they find their way back to LOVE
May they find their way back to LOVE
May water find her way back to LOVE
May we find our way back to LOVE
