The Circle of Life

on April 27, 2012

In my work as a volunteer engagement professional, I run into many great quotes, and I’m on a number of listservs and e-mailers pertaining to volunteerism and service-learning.

Every Friday I receive a mailer from Youth Service America, and in recent weeks the staff has selected songs that speak to the spirit of service.  Today’s song is Elton John’s Circle of Life from the movie The Lion King, and thought it appropriate for how I feel this morning.  I pray you’re blessed by the lyrics, too.

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It’s the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place…
