A Moment Of Peace For The Weary.........

........and All who need a break from life's daily trials, so that they may listen and feel renewed.

~*~ English Version ~*

~Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That sav'd a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,

Was blind, but now I see.

......................................................................

T'was grace that taught my heart to fear,

And grace my fears reliev'd;

How precious did that grace appear,

The hour I first believ'd!

......................................................................

Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,

I have already come;

'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,

And grace will lead me home.

....................................................................

The Lord has promis'd good to me,

His word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be,

As long as life endures.

.....................................................................

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,

And mortal life shall cease;

I shall possess, within the veil,

A life of joy and peace.

..................................................................

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,

The sun forbear to shine;

But God, who call'd me here below,

Will be forever mine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

We may not all look the same,
think the same,
speak the same,
but we're all Children of The Creator
and part of the Family of Man.
PEACE & Take Care.

That was very nice Mike. Peaceful. I prefer this version.

I wish my speakers were working! I disconnected them a while back and now they won't work again no matter what I do. I would imagine the Cherokee version of "Amazing Grace" is beautiful. We once had a visitor from one of our Korean churches sing it in Korean during a church service and it was beautiful, too. That's one song I think translates in a 'universal' language all its own.

I don't think I ever told you that I might have a thimble-full of Algonquin in me, have I? And I do mean a thimble, ha!

Beautiful, Mike. Very uplifting and relaxing all at once. I even took the time to copy down some of the prayers in the video.

Thanks!

Nice music and some beautiful imagery, Mike. Everybody loves dreamcatchers, and there were some very pretty ones there.
Thanks.
