Oh to Be Alive!

by Gretchen Sleicher


All Parts of Round
Oh, to be alive amid the Great Turning!
Oh, to be alive in this time of change.
Embrace the changes!
Open new ways for life to sustain.


This simple round works well as a Gratitude or Going Forth song, alluding to the great gift it is to be alive now, during the Great Turning, with its constant challenges and changes. Each part comes in after one line, and it’s best to limit it to two or three parts going at once. This recording starts on G.
