Carry Me / Tara Lai


Mantra: Carry Me / Tara Lai

  • Complete Mantra:

    A tear drop falls into the ocean

    This world is so full of greed

    I cannot swim in these waters

    Beloved, please carry me

     

    Welling up, waves of emotion

    Guide my soul through this storm

    Show me the way with your mercy

    Guide me, guide me back home

     

    Chorus

    Carry me across the ocean

    Carry me with your love

    Give me your hand

    Hold me close

    Give me peace, give me peace, sweet peace
