Within Dependent #Music

happy Independence Day, everyone, whether you live in the United States or not!

I wrote this song in 2015. I’m re-posting it today as a reflection on our own independence.

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. We can never freely be
Unless we freely let the others live.
We’re not given to receive
Until we let it all go and forgive.
And there is freedom from the limitations
Of this world we’re in.
It only comes in quiet Love
And seeing through the Mind of God within.
Refrain:

2. We can never make the rules
Or rule another person on their way.
We are just a pack of fools
Who put our foolishness out on display.
And there is freedom from the narrow bondage
Of this world we’re in.
It only comes in quiet Love
And seeing through the Eyes of God within.
Refrain:

3. We can never be ourselves
Unless we find the Self of Peace inside.
Our independence is a well,
Dependent on the only God of Life.
And there is freedom from the stormy waters
Of this world we’re in.
It only comes in quiet Love
And seeing through the Heart of God within.
Refrain:

Refrain:
Dependent on the One who made us all!
Within, dependent on the Answer to our call!
