C Dm F Em / C Dm C G / C F Dm G / C G F G / C – – –

Twisting, turning paths
from without to within
Over gravel, soil and roots.
Let the time begin
For a journey of the soul
from brokenness to whole…
ness in the Spirit,
Come take the labyrinth road.

The journey curves about
in the world, in the heart,
And the ground below is rough
or is smoothed by art.
Moving body, moving soul
from brokenness to whole…
ness in the Spirit,
Come take the labyrinth road.

No promises on the way
for insight or inspiration
Just a time to step away
for peaceful contemplation,
For a journey of the soul
from brokenness to whole…
ness in the Spirit,
Come take the labyrinth road.
