When teardrops fall,
May they open our eyes
To see that peace and understanding flourish in our lives.
When teardrops fall,
May they water well
And make our hearts a garden where the Spirit blooms and dwells.

1. We can sow seeds of goodness
Or plant a world of hate.
And even in despair and asking why,
We still can pray.

2. We have so many feelings
Of anger, hurt and grief.
But we can ask the Lord to show
Which feelings are the weeds.

3. For we all tend a garden
Of heart and soul and mind.
And what we plant today
Will be the fruit at harvest time.

Lord, make our hearts a garden where Your Spirit blooms and dwells
When teardrops fall.

Come Unto Me

Leave Them Where You Left Them


Blessing of the Elements

May the Earth of the North ground you
And keep your body strong.
May the Water of the West flow through you
And ease your feelings and emotions.
May the Fire of the South transform you
And clear your mind of negativity.
May the Air of the East speak through you
And breathe life everywhere you go.
May God’s elements of Nature bless your world
As He holds you in His loving hands forever.


Music, Elemental

Two to One

Two ears that listen carefully,
Two arms that hold me close,
Two hands that offer strength to me,
Two hearts that beat with love.

Two lovers living far apart,
But distance can’t divide
The oneness of our unity
In body, soul and mind.

Now there’s one thing I understand;
It’s simple, sweet and true.
What’s making me a better one
Is being one with you.

Your humor and my thoughtfulness,
Your laughter and my tears,
Your love protects, and mine connects
To keep us through the years.

We lived alone; we lived apart
And somehow got along.
But God gave us His greatest gift
By turning two, to one.


Eternal Love

Beyond the Tine We Stay

My Only One

To Freddy, with love and thanks for his spirit of hope and inspiration.

It’s only you, my only one.

1. Who makes my spirit smile?
Who reminds me that the hard times only last a while?
Who walks with me and holds my hand through every tear and trial?
It’s you, only you.

2. Who puts my fears to rest?
Who reminds me all I have to do is be my best?
Who has the strength and confidence to help me pass each test?
It’s you, only you.

3. Who sets my heart on fire?
Who reminds me every day to uplift and inspire?
Who gives me the encouragement to reach for my desires?
It’s you, only you.

It’s only you, my only one. (2x)

It’s only you who makes my heart sing
And loves me through everything.
It’s you who brings the laughter, and you who shines the sun.
It’s only you, my only one.

(Capo 2)

1. The ocean is a wondrous thing.
It flows in Summer, Fall, and Spring.
In Winter there is ice to see,
But heat and salt work faithfully
To keep deep waters flowing free.
God doesn’t let His ocean freeze.

2. The earth is an amazing place,
Supporting life through time and space.
The seasons come and creatures flee
To find the home and food they need.
Some hybernate or dig for heat,
‘Cause God doesn’t let His creatures freeze.

3. The Spirit is a raging fire
He fuels so we may feel desire.
We walk through darkness, cold and deep,
But Christ our Savior never sleeps.
And if we tend His Light, we’ll see,
God doesn’t let our Spirit freeze.

Father unchanging, You abide.

Father unchanging, changing life.
Turning and churning, dark and light.
Giving and taking, You provide.
Holding and molding, , be my guide.
Father unchanging, You abide.

Miracle of You

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
–Matthew 17:19-20 (KJV)

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
–Matthew 7:7-8 (KJV)

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”
–Helen Keller

1. I don’t have to touch you
To know that you are near.
The strength within your Spirit
Takes away my fear.
I don’t have to look for you
Or ask where you might be,
‘Cause I feel it in your blessings
Always reaching out to me.

2. I don’t have to see you
To know that we are one.
The light within your Spirit
Fills my heart with sun.
And I don’t have to look at you
To recognize your face,
‘Cause I feel it in the kindness
Of your mercy, love, and grace.

3. And I don’t have to speak
To know you hear my prayer.
The peace within your Spirit
Shows your tender care.
And I don’t have to look to you,
Because you live in me.
And I feel it in your presence
Of the truth that sets me free.

That’s the miracle of you.
That’s the miracle, miracle of you.

And the faith I place in you
Is the miracle you prove.
‘Cause when I ask for more,
You open every door.
And the glass is never empty,
Shattered, broken on the floor.
There’s another little bit,
And I take hold of it.
That’s the miracle of you.

My Forever

You are my forever and my eternity.

1. I used to live alone,
But now I know the truth.
Even when I’m by myself,
I have a friend in you.

2. I held this heavy world
Upon my shoulders small.
But now you bear the load
And walk beside me through it all.

3. The evidence of love
Is not how much we say.
It’s offering our heart and hands
To give support and strength.

O you are my forever and my eternity.

[‘Cause] you are my forever and my eternity.
You lift me from despair and make me all that I can be.
You love my body, mind and soul. With you I am complete,
‘Cause you are my forever and my eternity.
