Of my life I will make a free will offering to God
On the alter of the universe by a swift flowing stream

I have known many days and many ways
The sun makes me glad for my blessings
The moon reminds me of my birth right

A free will offering of peace I will make for my life
But strong will I stand for my life
For death is for another time and place

I love the autumn breezes
Leaves turning colors
New paths to seek

Change within non-change are the many faces of God
The reflection that animates the world
Within which many mirrors may be pathways of light

Life and death a perpetual crossroads
And our time a gateway to choose
Choose well my eyes – choose well my feet
Let my heart hum peace and let my voice sing aloud

In seeking Your essence may I be quickened
In seeking Your truth I am once again bound
