By Breath

Words and music by by Sara Thomsen

 

ALL: OOOOOh, shhhhh

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

 

Soprano: The air that is my breath is the air that you are breathing

Alto: And the air that is your breath is the air that I am breathing

Tenor: The wind rising in my breast is the wind from the east, from the west

Bass: From the north, from the south, breathing in, breathing out

Sopranos/Altos: north, south, breathing out

 

ALL: By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

 

Soprano: The water that is my blood, my sweat, tears from crying

Alto: Is the water that is your blood, your sweat, tears from crying

Tenor: And the rising of the tide is in our veins and in the ocean wide

Bass: We are in the rising steam, rushing river, running stream

 

ALL: By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

 

Soprano: The earth is dust, the earth is clay, flowers blossoming and fading

Alto: We are dust and we are clay, we are blossoming and fading

Tenor: Every color, every sound, every place is holy ground

Bass: Oh, every living thing, can you hear it laugh? Can you hear it sing?

 

ALL: By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

 

Soprano: The fire in my heart, my soul flame burning

Alto: Is the fire in your heart, your soul flame burning

Tenor: We are Spirit burning bright, by the light of day, in the dark of night

Bass: We are shining like the sun, and like the moon, like the Holy One

 

ALL: By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one
