Submitter Comments

The words to “Courage, Strength” came to me in the garden during the first lockdown in 2020.  This was a time of change, uncertainty and also reflection.  I heard the cry of a raven in the sky and the first words arrived – ‘Courage to stay, courage to go’.  It can be an empowering song for anyone facing a threshold in life or for those at the end of life.  The low harmony is best sung with conviction but also gently – for support and hope.

Courage to stay, courage to go.
Strength to endure, strength to let go.
