(02) She’s got the sun and the moon… 
(03) He’s got the wind and the rain… 
(04) She’s got invisible existence… 
(05) He’s got the children in all countries…
(06) She’s got the plants and the animals… 
(07) He’s got the ups and the downs… 
(08) She’s got the round and the rounds… 
(09) He’s got strength, love wisdom… 
(10) She’s got peace… 
(11) She’s got the whole world… 

May the Light, surround us.  May the Light, shine in us.  May the Light, help guide us, wherever we may go.
