By Cyntia Smith and Ruth Barrett
Hear my words, I’m calling from your heart
And calling from your mind
I am the spark that kindles the flame
And nurtures all mankind
For a jewel of light has been at every root
And lies within the soil’s clay
And it cradles the babe of our visions and dreams
And sends all creation into flight.
Take my hand, I’ll pull to free your stance
I pull only at first
And when you push on to make out a path
The waiting seed pods burst
There’s a fountain that flows and deep within the rock
And satisfies the thirst in all.
And it cools the brow when the hammer falls
And smooths the way for the birth.
So speak my name, I’ll come to any door
And come at any hour
And when you raise your voice and your heart
Your innocence is power
And the healing of love can sweeten bitter taste
And wash the poison from the wound
And it fills every sail to ride upon the sea
And guides every vessel homeward bound.
