God bless us!

This does not sound like a Christmas song. Even people surrounded by family and others can feel most isolated at this time of year. And if my prayer list is any indication, people want to feel some glimmer of hope and blessings, now more than ever! That’s why this isn’t a Christmas song, and why most of my holiday songs are more generic–because it’s not only on a holiday that we long to experience something higher than our human thoughts and circumstances! This longing is universal, and Higher Consciousness is, too! And so, may blessings be upon you, now and always!

Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”

And you feel worn and weary,

Mountain of the Lord

If you received this post by email, click the URL to hear this song.

Isaiah 2:1-3,5 (NKJV)

Now it shall come to pass in the latter days
That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
O house of Jacob, come and let us walk
In the light of the Lord.

The Mountain of the Lord

Mystically understood, the Lord’s mountain is a meditative state, a place of Higher Consciousness. It rises above the hillsides, the height, of everyday awareness to something greater. And it is for everyone, for all nations, all people, not just a chosen few. The mountain of the Lord is always present, and we can climb it, learn his ways, and walk in his light in our daily lives.

3. His mountain rises
Above the hillsides,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain: (Twice)

Up to the mountain of the Lord!
“Come!

Let My People Go


The story of Moses and its mystical connection to our own lives.
Instrument: Tempo – Seagull excursion folk acoustic guitar

(Capo 2)

1. The Lord said tell that Pharaoh man,
Let my people go!
So Moses with a staff in hand said,
Let my people go!
The Pharaoh wouldn’t listen, but the good Lord paid no mind.
He took down that Pharaoh in His will and time.
He drowned the ruling army in that Red Sea, you know,
‘Cause they would not take His order
To let my people go!
He said, let my people go!

2. God’s children came from Egypt land.
Let my people go!
But took the law into their hands.
Let my people go!
They built themselves an idol and prayed to it each day,
But God gave them commandments to live a better way.
They wandered through the desert a long long time, you know,
‘Cause they would not take His order
To let my people go!
He said, let my people go!

3. O we’re all children in God’s fold.
Let my people go!
Our bondage is a mind so cold.
Let my people go!
He frees us from the thoughts that keep our mind enslaved,
And up into the love and freedom that we crave.
We find that promised land where milk and honey flow
When we accept His order
To let my people go!
He said, let my people go!

Let my people go!

What You Write in Your Song

In setting your intentions and goals for 2016, may they be God-sent and God-guided! And may your life song:

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
–Psalm 100 (KJV)

What You Write in Your Song – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. We feel things,
And we’re not afraid to show them.
We let ourselves expose them
In hopes of being freed.
But real things,
They still remain inside us
And always do provide us
With what we truly need.
Refrain:

2. We think things,
And we speak our own opinions.
We try to have dominion
And make everyone agree.
But in sync things,
By the Light of all creation,
We are one eternal nation,
Under God, the King of kings.
Refrain: (Twice)

Refrain:
And your legacy lives on
With each note in your song.
And when you’re laid to rest,
The words that you express
Keep sounding like a ripple or a gong.
So be aware what you write in your song.
Be aware what you write in your song.

He Slumbers Not

He slumbers not, aye, though I sleep,
The God who does my soul inspire.
Awake to peace and order keep,
He slumbers not, aye, though I sleep.
When in the darkest hour I weep,
He breathes upon the inner fire.
He slumbers not, aye, though I sleep,
The God who does my soul inspire.

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.
