About This Song

The song is in gratitude for good things: for bodies, for lakes, for kindness, for time. Life can be confusing and uncertain— but I’d like to learn to resolve the mystery of life with gratitude.

Lyrics

Father Good
Make us light
Keep us close
Weave us tight 

Wade out in the great lakes
My body wants to be held 
Burning embers to morning light 
Fortify me against the night

Happy days
All is light 
Sweet July
Glorify

Spirit voices at twilight
Grow in chorus from sweet delight
Glowing embers and a precious thing: 
A little kindness to sit beside 

Mother Good
Give us light
Hold us close
Weave us tight

Rattlesnake highways stretch out through Ontario
Radio static comes through on the stereo
We rolled the windows to let in the sound
Oh what a torrent, oh what a sound

Calligraphy, marry me, do so sincerely
Fall asleep casually under a canopy
The blue open sky, promising life,
Always in spirit, always aglow!! 

Father Good
Make us light
Keep us close
Weave us tight 

Mother Good
Give us light
Hold us close
Glorify
