Recording from This Fire album in 2010
I wrote this song for a permaculture workshop that we hosted at our EcoVillage. I wanted a meal blessing song that not only honored all the micro-critters in the soil but also could rock out in a gospelly sort of way where people could get to swaying and clapping and happily harmonizing. It’s become a favorite in our community, and is lots of fun to sing several times, starting out slowly, and picking it up as you go along.
We give thanks for the life in the soil.
We give thanks for the light from above.
We give thanks for this beautiful meal,
That was gathered here
From the light and the soil
And seasoned with Love!Download Lyrics and Sheet Music
