Breathe, Breathe, Oh My Soul

Breathe, Breathe, Oh My Soul


Breathe, breathe, oh my soul

Of wasted hours, days, months, and years

Striving for uncertain goals

Unquenched in all the striving

Teaches humility


Breathe, breathe, oh my soul

Strangled struggling in search of lasting peace

From within the narrow shelf of self

The lungs nearly exploding

Instructs integrity


Breathe, breathe, oh my soul

Sorrowful longing, looking for the greater whole

Seeking the Spirit of the great I Am that I Am

Tasting of the Bread and Wine

My soul is infinitely satisfied


My soul is satisfied


Breathe, Breathe, Oh My Soul (c)2007  Quentin Clingerman
