by Paulette Meier
Our life is love, our life is peace
Our life is tenderness & bearing with each other
And forgiving one another
And not laying accusations one against another
But praying for each other
And helping each other up with a tender hand.
This is Meier’s setting of Isaac Penington’s 1667 Letter to Friends in Amersham.
Paulette recorded this chant on her Timeless Quaker Wisdom in Plainsong CD.
You can here this chant on the song page in The Music Box.
