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

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
