Lyrics

Canticle of the Feathered Ones
Words and music by SARA THOMSEN

Canticle of the feathered ones
Hymn of the hermit thrush
A song in the holy hush
A lake in the wake of sun

Vireos in the vestibule
Warblers wait in the wings
A finch begins to sing
The water, a sparkling jewel

Kyrie eleison, kyrie eleison

Canticle of the mourning dove
Angels in pine and spruce
The fox and the bear and the moose
Listen to the choir above

Gloria in excelsis deo, Gloria in excelsis
Gloria in excelsis deo, Gloria in excelsis

Heron delivers the homily
Incense fills the air
Cedar boughs in prayer
And I am lost in reverie

Sanctus, sanctus
Sanctus, sanctus

Canticle of the feathered ones
Candlelight of the moon
Litany of lark and loon
As the dark of the evening comes

Benedictus, benedictus
Benedictus, benedictus
Benedictus, benedictus
Benedictus
