Be Gentle

Updated: May 16

"Be Gentle" is a new song I wrote over the past few weeks as my tribute to the loss of lives in the shooting rampage in Nova Scotia and for all the precious souls who have succumb to the COVID19 pandemic. My heart breaks for all of the people who are sick and have lost loved ones.

In my daily ritual, I have been hearing that it is so important "Be Gentle" to ourselves. When there is so much trauma, fear, and uncertainty, we can stay and be still. In this song, I explore one of the beautiful graces of gentleness.


I hope you find comfort in this song. While there is no special production or any fancy recording, this song is from my heart to yours.


Blessings,

Heather










Be Gentle

Copyright Heather Hill – April, 2020

I’ll be gentle

I’ll be gentle

I’ll be gentle to myself

It’s the part of me

That’s my humanity

That harbours cruelty and great love

It’s the part of me

I'm quick to bury

That will always find its way to light

Oh be gentle,

Oh be gentle

Oh be gentle to yourself

It’s that part of you

The weapon cuts right through

But can never take your spark

It’s the part of you

Your sacrifice comes due

Surrenders you to love

Oh be gentle,

Oh be gentle

Oh be gentle to yourself

Grace go with you - Grace be with you – Grace the gentle in you

Oh be gentle,

Oh be gentle

Oh be gentle to ourselves
