Morning Prayer

Morning Prayer

Liner Notes: 

When I walked the dog early Saturday morning, I made up the words. When I walked the dog early Sunday morning, I recorded the nature sounds in the background.
When I sang it a cappella, it came out to about a minute. But I had more than two minutes of nature sounds, so I added the same vocal track doubled for a bit of echo.


This is my prayer to the morning
I know she hears it
I’ve taken safe passage on this ship
I know she steers it
Garland of flowers and jewels
I know she wears it
Arms outstretched for embrace
I know she shares it

This is my prayer to the morning
I know he feels it
Moon gives way to the sun
I know he reveals it
I love them, I love them, I love them
Hope that they know it
Now, I’m off into the day
I hope to show it

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

What beautiful lyrics and the nature sounds in the background add such a soothing undertone to the song.

The acapella plus birdsong is gorgeous, spiritual. A garland of flowers and jewels is such a lush image.

such a sweet and loving way to start the day, and the birds sing it with you

Nothing like nature and a walk to stimulate the song writer's mind. Very nice. Love the birds! Smile

I like how you used both masculine and feminine. I think it's important to think of nature/God/the universe as all encompassing. Lovely prayer.
