Words in Pictures

 

Pure light of early day

Send the dark of night away

Banish all shadows with the dawn

Shine on a world reborn

 

Whitest light, to clear the sky

Cold light of day that brooks no lie

Chases fears - away they fly  

Spirit of life shine on

 

Light of life, the rise and shine

Ready for action? Here's the sign

Soul of doing by design

Spirit of life shine on

 

Treasure remembered golden hours

Gift of a summers day

Gilding the twilight time

Ever May

Glow memory in my heart

Never stray, never stray

 

Source of life, the fire that glows

Passion and power, from which all flows

God's gardener - tends as he grows

Spirit of life shine on

Spirit of light shine on

 

Who can doubt, when the sun is out

Light of the world shine on

Day 1 - Pure light of early day Day 2 - Banish all shadows with the dawn Day 3 - Light of life, the rise and shine Day 4 - Glow memory in my heart Day 5 - God's gardener Day 6 - Who can doubt Day 7 - Spirit of Light, shine on

 

About SPIRIT OF LIFE...

 

In Ancient Egypt, as the sun rose a singer would lead worshippers towards the temple raising her voice in praise of the supreme creator.

 

To be a temple musician to a particular god was a high status position in Egyptian society - and frequently held by women.

 

I wrote this song for

a woman, a piano...

and Last Call for Nefertiti  

 

asking myself,

how might a woman singing

to the sun god Amun Re, sound?
