Let Us See the Beauty

Song Notes

This song was inspired by a fragment of the poem “The Invitation” by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. I remember being deeply moved and challenged by this poem when it first came out years ago, and each time it reappears in my life, it stops me short to challenge myself again, or reaffirm myself on my path again, or just to remember to take time each day for “The Beauty.” Oriah and her publisher, HarperONE, have given us permission to use these words. I strongly encourage you to check out the poem and her other works. Her website is Many folks have told me how after singing this song they have also found their way to sourcing their lives more intentionally from the immediate beauty at hand, whether inner or outer. This is also a song that is lifted up by little improvisational embellishments. Have fun!


Part One:

Let us see the beauty every day

And source our lives from its presence.


Part Two:

I want to know if you can see the beauty

Even when it’s not pretty every day

I want to know if you can see the beauty

And source your life from its presence
