Deep Peace


Deep peace of the running wave to you;
Deep peace of the flowing air to you;
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you;
Deep peace, deep peace.
Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you;
Deep peace of the wandering wind to you;
Deep peace of the flock of stars to you;
Deep peace, deep peace.
Deep peace of the Eastern wind to you;
Deep peace of the Western wind to you;
Deep peace of the Northern wind to you;
Blue wind of the South to you;
Pure red of the whirling flame to you;
Pure white of the silver moon to you;
Pure green of the emerald grass to you;
Deep peace, deep peace.
Deep peace of the running wave to you;
Deep peace of the flowing air to you;
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you;
Deep peace, deep peace.....


The words are from a prayer adapted by Donovan.

He had some great songs: the first song I ever learned on the guitar was Atlantis.
