Holly Near singing I AM WILLING
I AM WILLING is one of my favorite songs about change. At my recent book group, I was reminded of this gem and with a word sheet and an iPad we were able to sing along. It was a memorable reminder. I thought you might like to know or to remember it also.
So I am sharing:
Here are the words so that you can sing along:
I am open and I am willing
For to be hopeless would seem so strange
It dishonors those who go before us
So lift me up to the light of change
There is hurting in my family
There is sorrow in my town
There is panic all across the nation
There is wailing the whole world round
May the children see more clearly
May the elders be more wise
May the winds of change caress us
Even though it burns our eyes
Give me a mighty oak to hold my confusion
Give me a desert to hold my fears
Give me a sunset to hold my wonder
Give me an ocean to hold my tears.
I want to express my gratitude to all the folks who come by and read my words and especially those who would make a comment or two along the way – I feel a part of a fine community – Thank you each and every one.
