Thanksgiving Song

In honor of the day, I am sharing one of my favorite songs with you. It was written by David Roth, and my favorite rendition of it is by Anne Hills on her Woman of a  Calm Heart  CD.

May the Light of Love

As we come around to take our places at the table,
A moment to remember and reflect upon our wealth,
Here’s to loving friends and family, here’s to being able,
To gather here together in good company and health.

May we be released from all those feelings that would harm us,
May we have the will to give them up and get them gone,
For heavy are the satchels full of anger and false promise,
May we have the strength to put them down.

CHORUS
May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit,
May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way,
May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it,
May the light of love be with you every day.

And may we wish the best for everyone that we encounter,
May we swallow pride and may we do away with fear,
For it’s only what we do not know that we have grown afraid of,
And only what we do not choose to hear.

May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit,
May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way,
May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it,
May the light of love be with you every day.

As we bless our daily bread and drink our day’s libation,
May we be reminded of the lost and wayward souls,
The hungry and the homeless that we have in every nation,
May we fill each empty cup and bowl.

May the light of love be shining deep within your spirit,
May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way,
May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it,
May the light of love be with you every day.

May nothing ever come between or threaten to divide us,
May we never take for granted all the gifts that we receive,
Being ever mindful of the unseen hands that guide us,
And the miracles that cause us to believe.

May the light of love be shining deep with your spirit,
May the torch of mercy clear the path and show the way,
May the horn of plenty sound so everyone can hear it,
May the light of love be with you everyday.
