I think it took me so long to find my spirituality because I found it almost impossible to worship a male deity. A few years ago, I tried to incorporate male aspects into my spiritual practice more, but the only one who has really stuck is Ganesha. Praying to "the Lord" still doesn't sit easy with me.
And yet, I have always loved the music of this song. The lyrics, too, make sense to me much more now than they did when I first learnt them nearly thirty years ago. They echo what James Ricklef writes about: the idea of trying to always see the spiritual side in everything that life offers us, and of trying to live according to principles of love and devotion.
Now I'm wondering if I could put a one syllable Goddess name in to replace Lord, Bast, maybe. Or perhaps just bite the bullet and sing it as is. After all, there are plenty of men I love in my life - my DH, my two sons, and my stepfather topping the list. Maybe I can start from the known to approach the unknown...
