It is a special month. Not quite Spring. Still snowy and cold. But the sun shines brighter and brighter each day. The Celtic goddess/saint called Brighit is celebrated on the first of this month. Here is a song I wrote in her honor for St. Luke’s Presbyterian in 2005.

 

O Brigit! music and lyrics by Kari Tauring, 2005 BMI –

1.
Oh Brigit mother of the Kells and Mother of the World
Your smile it melts the frozen ground and makes the ferns unfurl.

Ch:
Oh come, come dancing in the field. Oh come, come playing in the wood.
Oh come, come taste the salty spray. The ocean takes our sorrows all away as we play. The ocean takes our sorrows all away.

2.
Oh the earth is black and wormy and the air is birdie blue.
The water flows into the sea and fire comes through you.

Ch:
Oh come, come dancing in the field. Oh come, come playing in the wood.
Oh come, come taste the salty spray. The ocean takes our sorrows all away as we play. The ocean takes our sorrows all away.

3.
Oh the fire forms and tempers us as strong and soft as steel.
The fire that is nourishing and causes us to heal.
The fire that like passion burns and bursts into a song.
Oh Brigit of the tripple fire, sainted for so long.

Ch:
Oh come, come dancing in the field. Oh come, come playing in the wood.
Oh come, come taste the salty spray. The ocean takes our sorrows all away as we play. The ocean takes our sorrows all away, this we pray. The ocean takes our sorrows all away!
