Turn the World Around / We Come From the Mountain #1074

WE COME FROM THE MOUNTAIN

(Harry Belafonte)

We come from the fire
Livin’ in the fire
Go back to the fire
Turn the world around

We come from the water
Livin’ in the water
Go back to the water
Turn the world around

We come from the mountain
Livin’ on the mountain
Go back to the mountain
Turn the world around

Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life
Oh, oh so is life

Do you know who I am
Do I know who you are
See we one another clearly
Do we know who we are

Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life

Water make the river
River wash the mountain
Fire make the sunlight
Turn the world around

Heart is of the river
Body is the mountain
Spirit is the sunlight
Turn the world around

We are of the spirit
Truly of the spirit
Only can the spirit
Turn the world around

We are of the spirit
Truly of the spirit
Only can the spirit
Turn the world around

Do you know who I am
Do I know who you are
See we one another clearly
Do we know who we are

Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life
Oh, oh so is life
A ba tee wah ha so is life

(Replace “mountain” with “starlight,” “fire,” “ocean,” “children,” “heartbeat,” etc.)

As Above So Below

(Morganne Baum)

As above and so below
On the Earth and o’er the sea
The seeds of (love / health/joy/peace)
I have planted and sown
Ready with thanks I now harvest to me

* Note: You may continue adding more verses by inserting your own words in place of “love” (i.e. “seeds of ________” ) such as: health, joy, peace, etc. It works best with a single syllable word. (This is sometimes called a “zipper-chant”)

 

Body

(Mz. imani)

Peace be in my body,
and peace be in my mind.
Peace be in my family
to truly help us grow.

We are riding
a wondrous rainbow
into the source.
We are guiding
the true destination of the earth.

Notes:

(The word “peace” changes as the song repeats: love, joy, trust, etc.)

We are the same people
