By Breath

Composed and performed by Sara Thomsen


Lyrics


By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one
 
The air that is my breath is the air that you are breathing
And the air that is your breath is the air that I am breathing
The wind rising in my breast is the wind from the east, from the west
From the north, from the south, breathing in, breathing out
 
By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one
 
The water that is my blood, my sweat, tears from crying
Is the water that is your blood, your sweat, tears from crying
And the rising of the tide is in our veins and in the ocean wide
We are in the rising steam, rushing river, running stream
 
By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one
 
 The earth is dust, the earth is clay, flow’rs blossoming and fading
We are dust and we are clay, we are blossoming and fading
Every color, every sound, every place is holy ground
Oh, every living thing, can you hear it laugh? Can you hear it sing?
 
By breath, by blood, by body, by spirit, we are all one

The fire in my heart, my soul flame burning
Is the fire in your heart, your soul flame burning
We are Spirit burning bright, by the light of day, in the dark of night
We are shining like the sun, and like the moon, like the Holy One

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

Notes


An anthem to interconnectedness, each verse of By Breath celebrates one of the four elements and then brings them all together as One in the easy-to-learn chorus that invites harmonizing. A perfect song to bring a group together in Seeing With New Eyes. The melody of the verses is easy enough for a group to join in on, as well as the chorus. Sara sings it in A, but G works well, too.
