An inspired call to personal responsibility in our own lives and in the world at large, written in a temple near Wallowa Lake (pictured right) in Eastern Oregon.


Stand beside the water
Fathers and sons
Mothers and daughters
Cast these old clothes away
Lay down your burdens and pray
And sing Hallelujah

Can you hear the waters speak?
Brother, hear the land whispering
Where have the guardians gone?
Maybe they are us and we forgot
Come sing hallelujah.

Heal the scars upon the land
Wash the blood on our hands
Lord knows we need a new plan
So that all living beings may find peace
So we all may join hands and sing

Come to the water and play
Remember who you are and cast away
All of the fear and the pain
Trust that love will find a way
And sing Hallelujah
