Ocean Hymn – lyrics

Standing on this long shore
Sun’s about to fall
Listen to the ocean
Mother of us all

I could stay out here for hours
Just bathing in this breeze
Blow away my troubles
Feel my pain begin to ease

	Focusing your eyes on the line of that deep blue horizon
	Looking out as far as your eyes can see
	You are not alone here if you’re standing by the ocean
	Because she always holds a little bit of me

All my dreams and all my memories
Are crashing in these waves
Folding over gently
All the loving that I gave

And sometimes if you listen
To the ocean as she roars
You can hear the wisdom
Of those who stood here long before

	Focusing your eyes on the line of that deep blue horizon
	Looking out as far as your eyes can see
	You are not alone here if you’re standing by the ocean
	Because she always holds a little bit of me

		This is what we need to see
		This is what we need to hear
		There is nowhere else to be
		Just be here

	Focusing your eyes on the line of that deep blue horizon
	Looking out as far as your eyes can see
	You are not alone here if you’re standing by the ocean
	Because she always holds a little bit of me
