Song Lyrics by Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell

I recently came across this most talented Professor, Actor, Author, Composer and Writer, Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell.  Below are the lyrics to one of her songs, that really expresses a spiritual message to me and I’d just like to share it with you.

“WE ARE” (By Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell)

For each child that’s born a morning star rises,
And sings to the universe who we are.

We are our grandmother’s prayers.
We are our grandfather’s dreamings.
We are the breath of our ancestors.
We are the Spirit of GOD.

We are …
Mothers of Courage
Fathers of Time
Daughters of dust
Sons of great visions.

We are …
Sisters of Mercy
Brothers of Love
Lovers of Life and
The Builders of Nations.

We are Seekers of Truth
Keepers of Faith
Makers of Peace and
The Wisdom of Ages.

We are our grandmother’s prayers.
We are our grandfather’s dreamings.
We are the breath of our ancestors.
We ar the Spirit of GOD.

WE ARE ONE.

I hope you enjoy and share it with others.
