This song is about singing, dancing, praying and standing to keep things moving. when I'm up against a block, feel myself stuck (especially emotionally), song is usually my first go-to tool to just shift things a bit, shake things up, physically start to dislodge that lump in my throat or the knot in my chest. It helps. It works. We all have our gift-tools, or are in the process of discovering them (so stick in whatever verb fits for you when singing this song: yell, swim, paint, run, play, etc.). Using them is another matter; recognizing the need, getting past ego, and/or mustering up the courage and motivation are all challenges I find myself struggling with in those moments when I suspect that exercising my gifts would be of benefit-- maybe you can relate. This song is a little reminder to use those tools! C’mon, shake the dust off, and put them into practice.

Lyrics

Feel the wind blow
See the Spirit moving through
Let sense of time go
And all the things you've
"got to do"
Make space for Silence.

I seek my heart's voice
and to surrender to the ride
Witness a process
of embracing all the things I hide
Make space for Silence
Make space for Silence.

Go even deeper now
To the Devine and become the Whole
Rejoin the river
Find and dig out some heavy stones
Make space for Silence
Make space for Silence.

It's time to sing, it's time to sing,
I gotta move this. Gotta move this.

It's time to dance, it's time to dance
I gotta move this. Gotta move this.

It's time to pray, it's time to pray
I gotta move this. Gotta move this.

It's time to stand, it's time to stand
I gotta move this. Gotta move this.

Won't you take my hand
won't you take my hand
Stand up
Call in the light ~ It is time.
