14. Circle Of One
01. Circle Of Time © 2008 Laurie Story Vela

Standing on the mountaintop,
in the circle of time
heartbeats of my ancestors
are beating with mine
& the heartbeats of the children
who will be here soon
We are all one heartbeat
in the Sacred Mother’s womb

In the heartbeat of the circle,
oneness is the call
Heartbeats now and heartbeats then
beat with one and all
Here in the circle,
the sacred circle of time
There is just one heartbeat
beating with mine

One heartbeat, One circle, One time
One heartbeat, One circle, One time
The sacred circle of time
There is just one heartbeat
Standing on the mountaintop

03.Your Wings© 2011 Laurie Story Vela

Your smile is sunshine warming my heart
I see you shining as the star you are
Radiant Love, you're now flying free
Angel, sweet angel, you now have your wings
Chorus:
We remember you dear as we let go with trust
We thank you for sharing your lifetime with us
We celebrate your Spirit, so full of Love
We honor the goodness of you that lives on

Your eyes they sparkled with a dancing light
The sweetness in you looked for what's right
Your smile could fill a room with joyful delight
I feel your joy now & I know you're all right
Chorus

Like a true friend & a troubadour of light
You saw the angel in me & you helped her take flight
Your heart had angelic Love, sacred presence to bring
Angel, sweet angel, you now have your wings
Chorus
We love you, we honor you, each and every day
Thank you sweet angel, we bless your way.

05. Travel Well ©2013 Laurie Story Vela

 Travel well, travel well my friend
wherever it is you're going ...

You left a trail of smiling laughs
our lives are richer for being on your path
Travel well, travel well my friend
Travel well, travel well my friend
wherever it is you're going ...

The goodness of you lives on
tho your body is gone, we will sing your songs
Travel well, travel well my friend
Travel well, travel well my friend
wherever it is you're going ...

The footprints that you leave behind
memories one of a kind, sunshine in our minds
Travel well, travel well my friend
Travel well, travel well my friend
wherever it is you're going ...

Our hearts are full and flowing ...
your Spirit we're forever knowing

Travel well, travel well my friend

07. Circle Of The Sun © 2020 Laurie Story Vela

Circle of the sun, circle of the sun,
Circle of the sun calls us to shine as One
One Light of Creation, One light of Life
Calls us to the circle on the shortest night
We are called to shine, we are called to shine,
we are called to live this divine design
Circle of the sun calls us all to shine
Circle of the sun calls us all to shine
Circle of the sun calls us all to shine
Circle of the sun, circle of the sun,
Circle of the sun calls us to live as One

We shine as One, we shine as one
we shine like the sun, we shine, we shine, we shine

02. Life Is A Web ©2016 Laurie Story Vela

Life is a web
woven in grace
We are the weavers
weaving in faith
Love is the thread
connecting the web ...
We are all weavers,
Love is the thread ...

04. You Are Free © 2016 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus:
You are free to leave
for you will always remain
in the love we shared
and in our memories

Father you free to go
Let your spirit lead you on
Your heart is your home
Follow the light of your soul
Father, be at peace
You are free to leave
Chorus
Mother, Child, Woman

06. Oh Shenandoah Lyrics © 2020 Laurie Story Vela

Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away, you rollin’ river
Oh Shenandoah, flow home to meet me
Away, be bound away
Home to me, your Mother Sea

Oh Mother Sea, I am your daughter
I Am, your rollin’ river
Oh Mother Sea, fear fills my waters
I’m afraid to be bound away
Scared to be, home Mother Sea

Oh Shenandoah, you are my daughter
Away, you rollin’ river
Oh Shenandoah, we are one water
Unafraid, be bound away
Home to me, your Mother Sea

Oh Mother Sea, I long to meet thee
Home with you, your rollin’ river
Oh Mother Sea, trash fills my waters
Flowing dirty, I’m bound away
Dirty me, my Mother Sea

Oh Shenandoah, I too am dirty
Away, you rollin’ river
Oh Shenandoah, we are one family
Away, be bound away
Home to me, your Mother Sea

Oh Mother Sea, I flow dirty water
Merged with you, your rollin’ river
Oh Mother Sea, I am your daughter
Afraid and dirty, bound away
home to thee, my Mother Sea

Oh Shenandoah, I long to see you
Away, you rollin’ river
Oh Shenandoah, flow home to meet me
Away, be bound away
Home to me, your Mother Sea (x3)

08. Mabon ©2011 Laurie Story Vela

One moon, one sun, balanced with Mabon
*drumming, we’re drumming on equal night
Fire & water, dark & light
*drumming, we’re drumming on equal night

Chorus:
We rest in the dark, we renew in the light, ho, ho, ho
We retreat to safe nest, we claim the sky in flight, ho, ho, ho
We come together to share one heart
Then we break apart with love in flight
Together we’re *drumming with Mabon this equal night

*drumming, singing, gathered
~ Sing 3 times thru exchanging the word

09. Light Of Love © 2010 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus:
The light of creation is inside of us ...
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
From the darkness of gestation, we are born to shine,
Called to align with the shine of our design.
Yes, we're called to shine with the stars.
The light of love is who we are.

The light is life itself, calling us to grow.
When we align our shine, our joyous love light glows
The divine inside us shines for us to know
Reach for the light ... grow, grow, grow!
Chorus
In the darkness of the Solstice, we reach for the light
In the depths of the darkest and the longest night
Listen to the whispers calling us to flight
Fly with the divine ... shine, shine, shine!
Chorus

11. Conception © 2011 Laurie Story Vela

New life is growing inside me
born of God's breath, a mystery
In the darkness of my womb
I feel the fear & I breathe, I breathe, I breathe

Chorus:
How can I know? I can only believe
in this seed of Love planted in me
With faith, I cling to the angel's wings
in the light that beckons believe
How can I know? This is God's mystery
Miracle Maker, with You I conceive,
I conceive, I conceive ...

New life is growing in the unknown
Bright light shining, I'm not alone
In the darkness of my womb
grow the seeds of infinite possibilities ~Chorus

New beginnings are born in me now
From the unknown, I simply allow
in the manger of my hope I gratefully weave
birth & death, with each breath, I believe ~Chorus
Tag:
Birth in each breath; I breathe, I breathe, I breathe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe.

13. Refugee Stranger ©2017 Laurie Story Vela
Tune of Wayfaring Stranger

I’m just a war refugee stranger
Traveling this world, on weary feet I roam
fleeing guns, bombs, death, destruction
No place to go, no where called home

Chorus:
I can't go back, I have no *father,
I can't go back, I have no home
I just walk, a lonely stranger
In search of mercy, I now must roam
(* mother, brother, sister)

There are many, many others
who like me flee by feet or sea
we seek the kindness of world strangers
we all are seeking amnesty
Chorus

I want to live and work with meaning
when I get home in that new land?
I"ll start again, I'll make a new life
with the mercy of an outstreched hand
Chorus

I'm going there to start all over
To live in safety ever more
Somewhere in this big world I wander
There is home, home for me
Chorus

I'm just a war refugee stranger
In search of mercy, I now must roam
In search of mercy, I have no home

10. Ostara
©2017 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus:
Spring is here alive and bright!
Spring is here alive and bright!
Green is reaching for the light.
Easter, Esther, Ostara in sight!

Ostara shines new birthing delights
Spring is here alive and bright
Light returning to balance the night
Ostara ignites our passions to flight
Chorus

Ostara shines on fertile ground
scattering seeds all around
Like green seedlings, we reach for the light
With renewed desires, our passions take flight!
Chorus

Spring is here alive and bright!
Spring is here alive and bright!
Spring is here alive and bright!

 

12. Meet In The Center
© 2016 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus: Fires are burning, yearning for justice.
Our hearts are timeless flames of forgiveness.
We're all in the circle of persecution.
We meet in the center ... now ... for holy restitution.
For all of the wise ones burned as false witness.
For all of the witches, we beg your forgiveness.
For all who've been enslaved. For all who are brave.
We honor you now for the lives that you gave. Chorus

We wipe all the tears cried in times of trial.
We sift through the ashes of fearful denial.
We won't be afraid of all who are wise.
For all who were deprived, we bring justice to the lies. Chorus

And so we go with the wisdom we know.
In memory of the wise, Love won't be denied.
We honor the divine, in the circle of time.
In the circle of persecution,
We are the center ... NOW ... of holy restitution.

14. Circle Of One © 2020 Laurie Story Vela

Chorus:
We all live in a circle; we are one, we are one
Life goes round in a circle; it’s never done, it’s never done

There is a great big circle
surrounding everything we eat
For each slice of bread,
sacred circle ‘round the wheat
Sunshine, water, soil rich land,
farmer, mill, truck, store, hands
So many lives touch our food
Let’s hold ‘em sacred in our circle of gratitude
Chorus


We’re on a great big circle
Our pretty planet earth, our home
Holding everyone
sacred circle round the sun
We all breathe, all have hearts that beat
Hands, eyes, ears, nose, fingers, toes, feet
Billions of lives share this life
Let’s hold ‘em sacred in our circle of grateful light
Chorus


We are one in the circle connected with all that ever was
Here and now, ahead, behind
All there to find because … We are one in the circle
All right here because … We are one in the circle (x2)
We are one (x2)
