‘We Are’ Medicine Song Lyrics & Music Video by Ravi

This is one of my favorite medicine songs to hear in ceremony, because the words are so powerful and empowering, connecting us to the support and protection of our ancestors, teachers, and spiritual allies, lifetime after lifetime, in each new life incarnation and soul journey. It’s rare that I like medicine songs sung in English during ayahuasca ceremonies, because they usually involve awkwardly flowing English translations of songs much better sung and experienced in Spanish or Portuguese. But there are a few, like “We Are” that transmit the ageless, multidimensional quality that so many medicine songs convey in their native languages.

Ravi Ji does a beautiful rendition of this Rainbow Gathering favorite, with the African kora. Based in Glastonbury, but a long-standing friend of the Ibiza medicine tribe, Ravi’s given sacred music concerts on the White Island that

“We Are” Song Lyrics

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

 

We are our grandmothers’ prayers
And we are our grandfathers’ dreamings
And we are the breath of our ancestors
We are the spirit of God

 

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

 

We are mothers of courage
And fathers of time
Daughters of dust
Sons of great visions
We are sisters of mercy
Brothers of love
We are lovers of life
The builders of nations
We are seekers of truth
And keepers of faith
We are makers of peace
The wisdom of ages

 

We are our grandmothers’ prayers
And we are our grandfathers’ dreamings
And we are the breath of our ancestors
We are the spirit of God

 

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

 

(Interlude)

 

We are our grandmothers’ prayers
And we are our grandfathers’ dreamings
And we are the breath of our ancestors
We are the spirit of God

 

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

For each child that’s born
A morning star rises
And sings to the universe
Who we are

We are one
