It's Alice Day again. Expect a few more of these, because I signed up for FAWM (February Album Writing Month).

This is my fourth FAWM Song, My songs can be found here on the FAWM website, or here on my hwaet.org website.

Gift Enough
lyrics and melody by Catherine Faber 2014
mp3 here
C      F          G          C
As the snow makes all things holy,
C G
Hushed and softened, draped in white,
C F G
Here my heart is lifted slowly
C F G C
By the beauty of the night.

C F G C
As forgiveness, hurt redressing
C G
Soothes a hundred bitter scars
C F G
Coming as an unsought blessing,
C F G C
Like a thousand falling stars

Am Dm G C
All the world the snow is holding
C Em Dm
Turning every twig to lace.
Am Dm G7 Bmdim
Silence guides, in slow unfolding,
Am Dm G F
All my heart can know of grace,

C F G C
One brief life is all we're given,
C G
Treasure I will not rebuff.
C F G
Lying under snow new-shriven,
C F G C
One real world is gift enough.
