Balm for the soul

White Pine

You sprouted up from the earth so many years ago
So grateful your greatness we have come to know
And the years just flow by rings upon rings
I’m here to sing of the solace you bring

What once was a seed has become a great tree
We sit in your shade feeling happy and free
We’ve leaned on you through thick and thin
And these are the times we have found ourselves in

With grace and with courage you’ve weathered the seasons
By night and by day you’ve given us a reason
To believe in each other our families and friends
To believe in ourselves to try again and again

We’ve laughed and we’ve cried in our times with you
You’ve helped us feel real by being so true
True to your nature with an eagle’s view
And without your presence, I don’t know what we’ll do

What once was a seed has become a great tree
We sit in your shade feeling happy and free
We’ve leaned on you through thick and thin
And these are the times we have found ourselves in

You sprouted up from the earth decades ago
And for your living years you have much to show
The songs that you made they live with the wind
They keep our hearts strong for the times we live in

What once was a seed has become a great tree
We sit in your shade feeling happy and free
We’ve leaned on you through thick and thin
To grow our hearts strong for the times we live in

From the album

“This music not only swings, rocks, and grooves–it matters. It’s the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.”

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”

Elizabeth Wolff
Cultural Healing Facilitator
