Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!

Based on mystical meditation and Aquarian Gospel 150, Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11: The Triumphal Entry.

Some Christian denominations take a break from the word (and hymn if they use one) Hallelujah during Lent, and “resurrect” it at Easter. Metaphysics has no preference, as many Metaphysical ministers don’t even use the word. I, however, like the way “Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!” sounds, so it’s included here.

Today is Palm Sunday, as well as Spring Equinox in the northern hemisphere, and Full Moon is in 3 days! May we cooperate with the God-within, Source and Creator of all nature!

Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen! – Lyrics

Note: My usual recording device is on the fritz; I apologize for this poorer quality.

Instrument: Nell – Long Neck Soprano Ukulele
(Reentrant Bb tuning)

Refrain:
Hosanna! Son of David,
Lord of hosts, and king of kings!
He’s come to love;
Above all heav’n and earth we sing!

Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!

1. Riding on a donkey,
But not sitting on a throne,
Jesus showed the world
How the kingdom can be won.
Refrain:

2. “Hosanna in the highest!”
In joyful voices raised.
With open hearts and minds,
The little children sang and praised.
Refrain:

Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!

3. Humbly Jesus came to earth
To do the Father’s Will.
And humbly does the Christ unfold,
Our purpose to fulfill.
Refrain:

4. If we don’t sing His praises,
But choose to keep our peace.
The stones will start to cry out;
May His glory never cease!
Refrain:

Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!
Hosanna! Hallelujah! Amen!

Good to Be Green

Instrument: Caera –
Mahogany Tenor Ukulele in 5ths Tuning

1. A famous frog once lamented,
“It’s not easy being green.”
It’s loud and bright and memorable,
A difference clear to see.
You cannot be invisible,
You glimmer with a sheen,
And it’s good, it’s so good to be green!
Refrain:

2. We don’t all have to look like
Other froggies on the scene.
We’re loud and bright and memorable,
A difference clear to see.
We cannot be invisible,
We glimmer with a sheen,
And it’s good, it’s so good to be green!
Refrain:

3. The Spirit is inside us,
And It guides us how to be.
It’s loud and It’s bright, and It’s memorable,
It’s a difference clear to see.
It cannot be invisible,
It glimmers with a sheen,
And it’s good, it’s so good to be green!
Refrain: (Twice)

Refrain:
Green! The color of vibrant life.
Ground what is old; let the new take flight.
Be who you are; don’t apologize.
‘Cause it’s good, it’s so good to be green!

1. Our heart is the center of body and mind,
A chapel where seeking becomes what we find,
The altar connecting the earth and the sky
As One, as One.

2. Our heart is the Light of a being so fair,
A chapel of healing, of comfort and care,
The altar to worship the Lifeforce we share
As One, as One.

3. Our heart is the home of the Spirit that breathes,
A chapel of wisdom we enter in peace,
The altar where burdens are gently released
As One, as One.

4. Our heart is the rhythm of all that we are,
A chapel of Love and the music of stars,
The altar of harmony sung in its parts
As One, as One, as One, as One.

The Sound of 2015

Personally, this hasn’t been the greatest year I’ve experienced. Not by a long shot… My beloved brother-in-law, Kenny, passed away after a short but very intense struggle with cancer. Because we were so close and I helped care for him and the household, it was a difficult time.

But: Spiritually this year has been nothing short of wonderful! In spite of personal circumstances, every week brought a new song! There are
50 Sunday Songtime offerings,
because I started in the 3rd week of 2015. Did I always feel like writing songs? No, and if I had to do it on human strength, energy, and power – let’s just say the project, and my spirit, would have fallen flat!

But this was not a project of will or personal choice. Every song came from Spirit. Each one is a divine expression of God as I was able to perceive and express at the time. Looking back over these weeks, I realize now more than ever, that these songs were meant to lift my spirit, to draw me closer to God-within, even as they are also meant for others.

I could not have written them without daily meditation! Without inner connection, songwriting results in, well, turn on the radio, and you’ll get an earful! Spiritual, mystical songwriting can only result from a spiritual, mystical relationship with God within our own mind. I.e. becoming Christ-minded so that we can proclaim, “The father and I are one,” and “I am about my father’s business,” as Jesus did.

Having shared the personal side of Sunday Songtime, here are some of my favorites:

God Bless this Human Mess

So Pass the Cheer!

Be Lifted Up

All Because of Love

Train of Thought

Can’t Take it with You when You Go
(started just before my Nana’s passing last December)

Give Thanks Within

Time for Lettin Go

Within Dependent

Faith of Christ

Bring the Light

Cookie Song
(I haven’t made Christmas cookies since childhood, but was pressed into service this year! And that was long after the song! A premonition I didn’t recognize at the time.)

Is that all? No! Though I haven’t finished the doctoral research and dissertation I wanted to finish this year, I’ve had the opportunity to become more intuitive, more spontaneous, and more joyful and playful musically. No doubt this has, and will continue to spread into other areas of life – and may it be so! Other songs written this year, some for future release, are:

Eternal Love, a wedding/union song based on 1 Corinthians 13

Piece of Paper, a future album track

Never Just a Kiss, also a future album track

Singing Sweet, from the mp3 album
Mother Nature Sings

Happy Birth Day,
a joyful breakthrough for me personally

Dreamkeeper,
co-written with ~Morgan~ of BookNVolume

Smilemaker,
written in memory of my brother-in-law

There have been some poems and articles as well, mostly health-related. I’m grateful for those; however, music has been at the forefront this year, including the October/Mabon release of
Mother Nature Sings!

One of my
International Metaphysical Ministry
ordination vows is “not to let personal suffering show forth to the public that could affect your work with them.” By the Power of God, I kept this vow, and only by His Infinite love and grace!

I give thanks for the opportunities God has given and created through me, and know that whatever 2016 holds will be for the Highest Good of every one of us! And mystically speaking, it is already done!

May God’s Presence bless you and your loved ones, now and always! And may you recognize these blessings and give thanks to their Creator–and yours!

God Bless this Human Mess

Instrument: Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele

1. “In my father’s house are many mansions.” But who cares
When all you see is heartache
running up and down the creeking stairs?
And nothin’ I can do or say
Takes anybody’s pain away,
But still I’ll do my best and pray:
Refrain:

2. Every soul in torment has a part that knows the Way.
Lead them, Father, lead them inward
To the bright eternal flame.
‘Cause nothin’ I can do or say
Takes anybody’s pain away,
But still I’ll do my best and pray:
Refrain:

3. In my father’s house are many people in disguise.
They are all His own,
Whether they think it’s Hell or Paradise!
And nothin’ I can do or say
Takes anybody’s pain away,
But still I’ll do my best and pray:
Refrain: (Twice)

God bless, o God bless
This human mess!
God bless, o God bless
This human mess!

Refrain:
God bless
Your people in distress.
God bless
The ones who feel repressed.
God bless
The ones who think they’re less than anybody else.
And God bless, o God bless
This human mess!

Wishing Well

Why is a Metaphysical minister writing a Goddess-centered song? Other than “Because I can!”

It’s because Metaphysics/mysticism and Goddess spirituality are not at odds with each other, if you have an open mind. In mystical Jewish and Christian traditions, the Shekina, Holy Spirit, or Holy Breath is considered feminine. She is Mother, Daughter, Sister, Beloved. She is one with the Father and Son, the Creator and the Offspring, not separate from either, but a part of everything!

A thought: Without a feminine aspect to bear, carry, and nurture, nothing would ever come to fruition!

Wishing Well – Lyrics

Instruments:
Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele
Soprano Recorder

Refrain:
Goddess is the wishing well,
The giving tree, the ringing bell.
From Her all things come and shall return.
Goddess is your sacred wish
From first desire to form of it.
She is Life, and Life is ever Hers.

1. She is every act of love.
She’s below and above;
Mother in the Earth and sky and sea.
She is everything you crave,
All the Will and all the Way.
Words and actions happen in Her Peace.
Refrain:

2. And the Goddess is in you;
She’s your Spirit and your Truth.
She creates and is creation all.
You are here, and you are She;
Feel abundant and be free!
Listen to the answer in Her call.
Refrain: (Twice)

Movin’ Around

Scriptures for Meditation and Contemplation

The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn’t dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons, and the boundaries of their dwellings, that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. ‘For in him we live, and move, and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also his offspring.’ Being then the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold, or silver, or stone, engraved by art and design of man.
–Acts 17:24-29*

Psalm 23*

*from World English Bible (WEB)

Movin’ Around – Lyrics

Instrument: Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele

1. I was born in a city,
But I don’t remember that.
I’ve wondered how it was
And if I should go back.
Refrain:

2. I was raised in the country,
And I knew the quiet space.
But it took a lot of time
To go from place to place.
Refrain:

3. I’ve come back to a city
Where things are close at hand.
And in me still the bless’ed Peace,
Because in God I stand.
Refrain (Twice)

God resides in me,
And I’m at home in Him.

Refrain:
Movin’ around, movin’ around,
Finding a new stomping ground.
Keep it going, ever flowing change.
But wherever I go, wherever I live,
There is One I travel with.
Because God resides in me,
And I’m at home in Him.

Pour out Your Presence

In memory of Nancy Abercrombie, who poured out God’s Presence through music for many wonderful years.

Instruments:
Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele
Soprano Recorder

1. My body is a vessel
Sailing on the waves.
It has lost direction,
Been tossed and blown astray.
And though the ship is sinking,
I can see the stars.
They light the sea of changes
And shine within my heart.
So
Refrain:

2. My body is a cup
Waiting to be filled.
It has known despair
And felt the empty chill.
And though the cup is broken,
It reflects the Light.
The wayshower of freedom,
The Christ in me is bright.
So
Refrain:

3. My body is a Temple
Where Your Truth abides.
And may my doors be open
To worship You inside.
‘Cause You are my foundation,
Building me on earth
Even as in Heaven
Through life and death and birth.
So
Refrain:

Refrain:
Fill me with Your Love!
Touch my soul of clay!
Bless my heart and mind,
So I may pour out Your Presence each day!

Look What God Has Done!

Instrument: Eventide – Mahogany Concert Ukulele

1. Look what God has done!
Inspired and made you one
With all that is above
And all that is below,
With earth and moon and sun,
And tides that ebb and flow!
Look what God has done!

2. Look what God can see!
All of eternity!
The puzzle that is whole,
The image real and true,
The path of every soul,
The beauty that is you!
Look what God can see!

3. Look what God has blessed!
The journey to his rest!
The road that’s hard to take,
The inner Light that shines,
The step that is in faith,
The Love that frees the mind!
Look what God has blessed!

4. Look what God has done!
Created you as one!
With Jesus Christ who came,
And every noble fruit,
The Kingdom’s yours to claim,
‘Cause God-life is your root!
Look what God has done!

Look what God has blessed!
Look what God can see!
Look what God has done
Here in you and me!
