Words and Music by Peter Makena
Performed by Gretchen Sleicher & Friends
Parts 2 and 3
There is so much magnificence in the ocean*
Waves are coming in, waves are coming in
Halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, halleluja,
halleluja, halleluja, halleluja, halleluja
*original lyrics say “near the ocean”
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.”
