Your Spirit Soars Around Me Like A Song

I wrote the music and made the recording. Starting from the title line, Larry wrote the lyrics for the four verses. I added the lyrics for the chorus, summarizing Larry's verses. Steve played the guitar solo, a Greek woman on Fiverr sang our song beautifully, and Rhesa added additional tracks. - Elton December 1, 2022



Lyrics

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
Long ago when I was young
They told me of your name
And though I didn’t know it, you were calling
One day I heard your voice
And as I made my choice
Your Spirit soared around me like a song

(Verse 2)
There are days of so much joy
It seems that heaven’s here
You’re present in the lives of all your children
With peace that has no end
A brother and a friend
Your Spirit soars around me like a song

(Chorus)
Thank you for the privilege of
Seeking you each day
For the peace that has no end,
The joy that's come to stay
Even when I wander, Lord
You hear the words I pray
Your Spirit soars around me like a song

(Verse 3)
There are times I lose my way
I can hardly even pray
And it gets so hard to find a rhyme or reason
I feel you very near
And in my heart, it’s clear
Your Spirit soars around me like a song

(Verse 4)
Every morning as I rise
To face the day anew
May you always keep me mindful of your presence
Until the journey’s done
And with the setting sun
Your Spirit soars around me like a song

(Repeat Chorus)
Thank you for the privilege of
Seeking you each day
For the peace that has no end,
The joy that's come to stay
Even when I wander, Lord
You hear the words I pray
Your Spirit soars around me like a song

Your Spirit soars around me like a song
Your Spirit soars around me like a song
