Lyrics


Part 1

River of tears carry me
River of tears, carry me home
To the ocean of my being
To the ocean of love



Part 2

River of tears carry me
River of tears, carry me home
To the ocean of my being
To the ocean of love



Part 3

River of tears carry me
To the ocean of my being
Ocean of love

Notes


So many messages tell us to hold back our tears, yet when we let them flow, especially together with others, a shift can happen that connects us with the love lying underneath them.

This is a zipper song, in which the word love can be replaced by a different word each time the song is sung through: peace, hope. To what else will we be transported when we honor our pain for the world?

This song is good to get a group singing together after doing one of the Honor Our Pain for the World practices from the Work That Reconnects, such as the Truth Mandala.
