Lyrics:

There Is Nothing Big in Playing Small
Lyrics adapted from Marianne Williamson's "A Return to Love"


Verse
We ask ourselves, who am I, to be brilliant and gorgeous, talented and sure?
But you're a child of God, why would you play small to make others feel secure?

We were born to manifest the glory of within!

Chorus
Our deepest fear is not our weakness,
Our deepest fear is our strength.
It's our light, not our darkness that frightens us to silence
And makes our shadows tall,
But There Is Nothing Big in Playing Small.

Verse
As we let our own light shine,
Unconsciously we give our friends the strength to do the same.
As we free ourselves from fear,
others get permission to free themselves from shame.

We were born to manifest the glory of within!

Chorus
Our deepest fear is not our weakness,
Our deepest fear is our strength.
It's our light, not our darkness that frightens us to silence
And makes our shadows tall
But There Is Nothing Big in Playing Small.

Bridge
And it's not just in me,
And it's not just in some of us.
It's in everyone you meet,
There's not a single one of us that isn't fabulous!

Chorus
Our deepest fear is not our weakness,
Our deepest fear is our strength.
It's our light, not our darkness that frightens us to silence
And makes our shadows tall.
But There Is Nothing Big in Playing Small,
No, There Is Nothing Big in Playing Small.
