1. Meditation

From the recording Nobody's Angel


An eagle flies across the mountain
the sunlight fades, a star appears
a voice is calling from the wilderness
the light of God is drawing near
there is no one to walk beside you,
there is no one to take your hand
there is no turning from your destiny
the time of God is close at hand
what is this fear so deep inside you?
what is this trembling in the air?
what is this sighing in the branches?
the voice of God is everywhere
you cannot hold it to your body,
you cannot hold it in your mind
as sure as water slips between the stones
the hour of God is passing by
lay down your burdens and your meanings
lay down the words you have been told
lift up your life and leave this place behind
the place of God is in your soul
