Amazing Grace Metta Prayer

by Brian Kimmel



Here is a song I learned awhile ago from Deer Park Monastery. I made my own rendition of it, and since learning it have sung it and lead it at retreats with simple movements for over 1000 retreatants across twelve states between the years 2016 - 2020.


Amazing Grace Metta Prayer
Based on a Traditional Buddhist Prayer
Sang to the tune of Amazing Grace


May I be filled with loving kindness
May I be well
May I be peaceful and at ease
May I be happy

(Now continue each verse with the following.
Do as many as you like to the extent you have energy.)

May you...

(sing with someone you care about in mind or
someone you dislike to wish them well)

May we...

(sing for the group you are a part,
perhaps while holding hands)

May Earth...

(sing while touching the earth)

May Sky...

(sing while raising hands to the sky)

May all... May all be happy and free.

(sing with the intention of sending energy to all beings
great and small, seen and unseen, known and unknown.)
