Magnificence

Words and Music by Peter Makena
Performed by Gretchen Sleicher & Friends


Lyrics


Part 1

Halleluja, halleluja



Parts 2 and 3

There is so much magnificence in the ocean*
Waves are coming in, waves are coming in



Part 4

Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, halleluja,
halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, halleluja

*original lyrics say “near the ocean”



Part 4




Notes


Sing this one slowly to evoke the motion of ocean waves and give gratitude to the mother all biological life. When a group gets going on it, it feels like being rocked in the arms of great mother ocean.

The halleluja parts start on A, an octave apart; Parts 2 and 3 start on C sharp and E.

“When I originally came up with the song some 35 years ago at the Osho Ashram in India, I did it a little different then, it seems to have its own life and the melodies and harmonies always tend to move closer toward the direction of the Pachabel Canon.”
