Choir Lyrics   

 

Can you hear the splash of the salmon

Flying up a sparkling stream?

Do you feel the stillness surrounding?

Can you awaken inside a grand dream?

 

Do you sense the world that is hidden?

Do you feel the wisdom of the land?

Do you notice the trees in their splendor

hold us all in the palm of their hand.

 

Symphony, a Sacred Forest

A call to all the lands!

Harmony of past and future

Trees of every nation

together a forest stands..

 

Connect, like the roots of the pines

Rejoice with the oaks stretching round and high.

The leaves form the soil for seeds to grow

We breathe the air through which the birds fly..

Symphony, a Sacred Forest

 

A call to all the lands!

 

Harmony of past and future

 

Trees of every nation

 

Together a forest stands..
