Lyrics

The journey seems lonely, the road is so long.
There are places I falter; I can hardly go on.
But just at that moment a voice deep inside
Says “Keep coming home; I’m here by your side.
Keep coming home; I’m here by your side.”

And I soar like an eagle on wings swift and strong;
I see the light growing; I greet the new dawn.
I soar like an eagle, my wings swift and strong;
I see the light glowing; I greet the new dawn.

And now from this vantage I see where I’ve gone—
The places I faltered, the times I was strong.
And I see it was perfect and I now know inside
I never left home at all for you were always my guide.
I never really left home at all; you were always my guide.

And I soar like an eagle on wings swift and strong;
I feel the light growing; I feel a new dawn.
I soar like an eagle, my wings swift and strong;
I feel the light glowing; I feel a new dawn.

I soar like an eagle, my wings swift and strong;
I feel the light glowing; I greet the new dawn.

I am the light glowing, I am the new dawn.

Quote of the Week

The gateway to compassion and lovingkindness is to be able to feel our own pain, and the pain of others. If we are able to open in this way, our hearts can melt, and the healing salve of compassion can anoint all our wounds.
