Homage to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh

It gives me great pleasure to share this homage to Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh with you today. He has been a guiding teacher in my life for more than thirty years and an inspiration to millions of people all over the world.

The song was written and sung by Mike McMahon and recorded by Ric Marchino.


Here are the words to the song.

Save your tears to mourn
I am still being born

I am the sun, I am the moon
I am the joyful lover’s tune
I am the dust, I am the rain
I am your joy, I am your pain

I am the child who bore a child
I am the people reconciled
I am the morning star
I am the bloody war

I am the lonely longing
of life for God.
Oh, we are from God.

Do not say goodbye
For we still arrive

We are the earth, we are the sea
We are the children yet to be
We are the blood, we are the bone
We are the seed, we are the stone

We are the thief, who hides from sight
We are the sisters of the night
We are the morning star
We are the bloody war

We are the faithful longing
of life for God
Oh We are from God
