Morning Grace
Leela Grace

I feel your breath upon my skin
As the morning light finds your face
Love blows ‘round us like a sacred wind
And I say a little morning grace

[chorus] Tears like a blessing, love like the light
I touch you like a prayer every single night
I don’t know who to thank every single day
I sing a little song, say a little grace
Thank you to the breathing
Thank you to the sun
To the moon and the morning
Every song ever sung
To the sky and the ground
The goddess in the trees
The angels and the afternoon
That carried you to me

Your smile makes me want to sing
As you lead me barefoot to the door
You show me all the fragile flowers of spring
That have never dared to blossom before

[chorus]

The night wind blows so silent and so sweet
And you gather me gently in your arms
I hold you in reverence as you sleep
And I whisper my thank-yous to the stars
I whisper my thank-yous to the stars

[chorus]
That winter afternoon
That carried you to me
