Grant Gibson This very spiritual yet grounded song definitely shows the next level of musical professionalism from Britt in 2021. The lyrics are rivetingly honest in a world gone a little crazy. I can't wait for the entire album release! Something tells me the best is yet to come. I feel like meditating now...breath in breath out. Kudos Britt!

Words and music by Britt Arnesen

Blessings on the farm and field
Hours of toil in wind and sleet
In snow and rain and burning sun
Fire drought and flood

Breathe in breathe out
Hands together now

Blessings on the broken home
The mother and her child alone
Love rises up through sorrow deep
Oh Lord provide their need

Blessings on the refugee
The war torn land they had to flee
Lord please feed your families
And give them shelter to keep

Blessings on the hardened hearts
The crooked minds the oligarchs
Better times are one choice away
Turn them back I pray

Blessings on the soldier brave
Who fights for peace and frees the slaves
Guide him with your steady hand
Bring him home intact

Breathe in breathe out
Hands together now
Breathe in breathe out
Keep fighting back those doubts
