The Healing Power of Singing, Friendship and Love

30 Mar

I just love my choir and my singing friends and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for the loving harmonies.

A small group of us are finding songs to sing with a small audience. This one came into my inbox this afternoon and is just perfect for today. “What’s In A Song”  Click below to listen.

 1) There are times when the folks are having a ball And the drinks and the jokes could fill up a hall But give me a song, a chorus, or more

And that’s when I’m likely to soar.

Oh they say there is nothing like having a feast
To bring folks close together from north, south, west, east But give us a song when the feasting is done
And that’s when the many are one… Oh…

2) There’s a time and a place for sorrow and woe When the pain and the tears are expected to flow But give me a song and voices close by
And that’s when I’m likely to cry

There’ve been times when my heart has wanted to weep But the pain and the tears were buried too deep
Then out of the blue in a roomful of song
The locked-inside feeling was gone…Oh..

3) There are places where pleasure is wrapped up and sold And you purchase a moment with silver andgold
But the pleasure of singing’s a blessing to me
‘Cause I know it by heart and it’s free

Oh, the times I remember and cherish so much
When we reach with our voices – it’s almost like touch

And we pull in the circle and banish our fears And we try to keep singing for years…Oh…

The following quotation is also apt for today.

Sending love out into the ether for all my blogging friends and all my readers.

    From My Beautiful Things a lovely post that spoke to me today. For those who love folk music and singing like I do, you will appreciate this post I think! I love this verse:
    3) There are places where pleasure is wrapped up and sold And you purchase a moment with silver and gold
    But the pleasure of singing’s a blessing to me
    ‘Cause I know it by heart and it’s free

    Oh, the times I remember and cherish so much
    When we reach with our voices – it’s almost like touch

    And we pull in the circle and banish our fears And we try to keep singing for years…Oh…

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful song – got me all choked up with tears! I love this kind of folk song music. The lyrics speak volumes to how those of us who love to sing feel about it and what it does for us and others! Much love to you.

    Lovely happy song. I’m afraid I couldn’t sing along though, as I’ve lost my voice. 😦
