Singing Alive

I am a tower of strength
Within and without
I am a tower of strength within
x2

All of my burdens fall from my shoulders
All anxieties slip from my mind
x2

May all my shackles be loosened
May all my shackles be loose, yeah yeah
May all my shackles be loosened
May all my shackles be loose

    This chant, with African-American roots, was written by Helene Bohman-Blomqvist. (born in Sweden, January 15th, 1949.)

    It is lovely sung as a three-part canon.

      I was misinformed.

      Tower of Strength was writtenby Jackie Summers. It was written as part of her falicitation of women’s empowerment workshops.

      My sincere apologies.
