O Breathe Us

The waves arrive one by one
Sparkling with remembered sun
Ancient songs seizing our tongue
The temple rising out of the blue
Broken pillars solid and true

O Breathe us deep, breathe us strong
Breathe us full, O breathe us home


The waves arise with shining grace
Stained with dawn’s burning face
We won’t leave this broken place
Until we release our golden chains
Bursting through the slumber and pain

O Breathe us deep, breathe us strong
Breathe us full, O breathe us home


It is time to turn from the old
It’s time to come in from the cold
Frozen pain will bind our soul
Until we’re freed from our tomorrows
No longer chained to old sorrows

O Breathe us deep, breathe us strong
Breathe us full, O breathe us home


And once again here we are
Gathered together from afar
Each a spark from a dying star
Our awakening heart is the clearing
For the Holy Deep we are nearing

O Breathe us deep, breathe us strong
Breathe us full, O breathe us home


Lyrics written by Robert Augustus Masters/Music composed by Diane Bardwell
