  1. Let Them Grow

From the album The Giving Prayer

Lyrics

are you still chopping down your apple trees for firewood
are you still giving away your power because you think you should
well it's true, i know,
that more will grow
but there's something else i see that I want you to know

you've been given gifts to give so that we all might live
more abundantly and free
it is good and right for you to shine your light
and let the apples grow and ripen on your trees
so don't burn them up
and break your cup
trying so hard to please

cause when you let them grow,
and they will, you know . . . .
they will bless many more than you will ever know,
they will bless many more than you will ever, ever ever know.

we've been given gifts to give so that we all might live
more abundantly and free
it is good and right for you to shine your light
and let the apples grow and ripen on your trees
so don't burn them up
and break your cup
trying so hard to please

cause when you let them grow,
and they will, you know . . . .
they will bless many more than you will ever know,
they will bless many more than you will ever, ever ever know.
