Spirit Bright

For the 2014 Be the Change Songwriting Challenge at SongU.com.

I don’t usually post lyrics and chords, because lining them up is a feat requiring great patience and a certain amount of insanity if you can’t see the screen! But this song is especially important to me, so I thought it might be to someone else as well.

Spirit Bright – Lyrics and Chords

Instrument: Cedar/rosewood tenor ukulele (linear/low G tuning)

3/4 time
Key of A

Intro:
A

1.
A7 D
We use our hands to meet demands
A E7
That people ask us to.
A A7 D
Not always well or in our plans,
A E7
But it starts with me and you
D E7 A A7
To let the Truth shine through.

Refrain:
D E7 D A
May your hands reflect your heart,
A7 D A E7
And may your heart be light.
A E7 D A
May your mind always come back to its part
E7 A A7 D
And follow your Spirit bright,
A E7 A
Follow your Spirit bright.

2.
Our hearts are touched by every spark;
Not one can pass us by.
To harden them would leave us barred,
Because even when we cry,
In Truth we never die.

Refrain:

3.
The mind, it spins and whirls around
With what was or what could be.
A F#m D A
By worrying it hits the ground
(cont. as prior verses)
And can’t look up to see
The Truth that sets it free,

Refrain:

Last refrain:
D E7 D A
May your hands reflect your heart,
A7 D A E7
And may your heart be light.
A D
May your mind always come back to its part
A E7 A A7 D
And follow your Spirit bright,
A E7 D A
Follow your Spirit bright.
