Waves of kindness washing over me
Lift my heart to places where I see
Peace and beauty, truth, and love
Filling all creation below and above

Waves of kindness washing over me
Open my mind to places I believe
Show a way to live our lives
Walking hand in hand and side by side

Waves of kindness washing over me
Move my hands to work in harmony
Making justice true for all
Standing together and following our call

Waves of kindness washing over me
Touch my soul and set me free
Wonder at the mystery
Finding joy in being all that I can be
Finding joy in being all that I can be

And I need to know what’s wrong
So that I can do what’s right
