Singing Siyahamba with the World

June 13, 2009 at 2:02 pm 1 comment

I’m speechless. I’ve just had an extraordinary experience with an amazing hymn. This video pretty much says it all. This past week, I had the great honor to participate in the world-wide Annual Meeting of the Christian Science church. And this year, we ALL had the distinct opportunity to feel an incredible sense of global unity through music. Check it out here on youtube!

    HI Julia…SO inspired by this beautiful work that you and Peter (along with numerous others) created here! So much so that we are planning to sing a version of this piece this Sunday at Unity Church of Las Vegas. (Oh, by the way…I’m a Watchfire Artist)…I have gotten all but 2 lines of the song…Love the extended version.. in the 2nd verse, after “As we turn our faces to the light of god…Harmony replaces pain, fear and strife…” the next 2 phrases elude me until “As we raise our voice all in one accord..) I have searched online to find Christian Science lyrics as I believe this is a hymn that you use…but to no avail..If you get a chance to send me that missing line I would very much appreciate it…of course it being Thursday..(3 days from due date) I GET that this may not happen…but thank you for your beutiful music! Peace and Blessings, Richel Kompst
