about

THE WELCOMING is a piece Kenny Loggins wrote for his daughter's christening several years ago. When he offered to participate on my album, I chose this song, and he wrote the second verse for his youngest son's christening just before we recorded it. I think Kenny is one of the great musical artists of our time, and it's an honor to have this duet with him on the album.

lyrics

THE WELCOMING
(Kenny Loggins)

May the Spirit enter into this room
May our hearts be filled with her light
May she ever surround and protect us
And may always her beauty be here by our side
Our love has grown - into a home
And suddenly everything I've learned has a place it can start
Cuz finally love has come and taken a place in our hearts

This is our Welcoming /Open up and let it in
Feel it happening / Spirit's beckoning
Welcome to our Welcoming

May your eyes be filled with wonder and joy
May your arms be filled with delight
May your heart be as easily opened
As the moment of grace in the birth of a child
Love's gentle touch (Has)shown me so much
And suddenly everything I've learned has a place it can start
Cuz finally love has come and taken a place in our hearts

CHORUS (2x)
(Angel voices)

Come everybody let us lift our hearts and celebrate together
And every one of us can lift our voices, sing and dance together
