With gratitude to poet, author, Catholic Sister and dear friend Joyce Rupp. Joyce planted the seed for the writing of this song. Inspired by a line from the 5th Century Muslim poet, Rumi—“Come, return to the root of the root of your Self”—and also the story of “The Golden Buddha” as told by Buddhist author Jack Kornfield (in his book The Wise Heart).

Lyrics

Root of the Root

Return returning
Return returning
To the root of the root
Home of your home
Return, return

Come home, come home
Come home, come home
Come home, come home
Home of your home

Shining light, guide me
Golden light, inside me
