Lyrics

Blessed river, polishing stones,
She is polishing our hearts, we are claiming our thrones,
To sit side by side in our awakened homes,
Love is always watching
Love is always watching

(And we’re gonna sing)  Sing, sing our prayers for freedom
(Said we’re gonna sing) Sing, sing our prayers for freedom
(Said we’re gonna sing) Sing, sing our prayers for freedom
Sing our prayers for freedom for all humankind (x2)

Medicine giver, gentle spirit of the land
She is polishing our hearts in ways we do not understand
We walk side by side and offer both our hands,
Love is always watching
Love is always watching

(And we’re gonna sing)  Sing, sing…
Sing our prayers for freedom for the land  (x2)

Brothers, sisters, brave pilgrims of the night
We have followed our hearts, and to truth we have arrived
To sit side by side in divinity’s light
Love is always watching
Love is always watching

(And we’re gonna sing)  Sing, sing…
Sing our prayers for freedom for the world  (x2)

Verse 1

Love is always watching
Love is always watching

(And we’re gonna sing)  Sing, sing…
Sing our prayers for freedom for the world  (x3)

    Beautiful! Will have to share this one. I like the call and response for the Chorus. I wonder if it would be a good song for Justice/Peace rallies and or even a march or two if you have people who really know it.
