Lyrics: 

Om Shanti

Beloved Source, sacred fire
that indwells my heart,
hear this prayer, this desire
that I take my part–
that suffering may cease,
all beings live in peace

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

Let this world be my mirror,
give me eyes to see
that what I judge, shun, or fear
may be met in me.
If I turn the outside in,
healing may begin.

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

Send the rain, send the sun
that I need to bloom.
Burn my barns–every one–
if they block the moon
or obfuscate the sight
of your ever-present light.

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

Beloved Force
that gives me breath,
that pumps my blood,
that spins these stars,
that dreams this dream,
that sings this love,
may thy will be done–
may thine and mine be one.

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti
