Simply Souls

If we were souls
Who chose the Earth
And come to do it good.
Oh, if we were souls
That chose the Earth,
If only that we would.

If we were souls who came to Earth
To help to set it free.
If we were souls who came to Earth
To know when to let it be.

If we were souls, who came to Earth
To be who we should be,
And take our love
To share around,
I wonder who we would be.

If we were souls who came to Earth
To learn our lessons well,
And if we learnt that we are the ones
Who make it heaven or a hell.

If only we were souls who came to earth
To love, to work and play.
What would the Earth be like right now, today?

For if we were souls, who knew our worth,
There would be only love.
If we were souls who remembered who we are
And the choices we made above.

If we were souls who knew
That we directed our own fate.
If we were souls who knew this truth
Before it was too late.
Then there would no longer be a need,
For a world full of sorrow, want or greed.

If we were souls who knew
Our might within God’s love,
Then there would be no fear
For if we were souls that knew all this
The road ahead is clear.

We would simply know that we are souls
who have been here times before.
That we are souls who have the choice
before we knock on Earth’s open door.

That we are souls
Who are filled with love from God’s domain,
And with this love we are all souls
Who can make the message of our journey plain.

That we are all souls
Who have come to learn, to teach, to love and care.
For we are all souls that need nothing more
Than the love we share.

We are all souls who must remember
Who we are and why,
To carry out the work we chose or at least must try.
To follow our plan through right to the end
And on the way meet souls like you, my friend.

Then we will be souls who know the world at its very best.
For when we recognise ourselves for the souls we are,
We simply know the rest.
That we are souls who came to Earth
And to do it some good.
To spread the word
Just as we promised God we would.

That we are all souls,
Simply souls, my friend,
Connected by our love.
And that it is to be on Earth
As it is above.

So remember well why you have come,
And for the Earth do your good.
Use your love from God’s domain,
As you feel you should.

For we ARE all souls that chose the Earth
And came to do it good, it’s true
And with this goal the Earth will be at peace,
Because of souls like you.
