Blessings Be upon You

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.”

Blessings Be upon You – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

1. When times are dark and dreary
And you feel worn and weary,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

2. When every wish you’ve wanted
Is like a haunting hunter,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain:

3. When careless words are working
To keep you hard and hurting,
I ask that blessings be upon you.
Refrain: (Twice)

May the Lord give you peace!

Refrain:
The Lord bless you and keep you
And shine His face upon you.
The Lord be gracious unto you
And give you peace.
The Lord give you peace!

These are the Days

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
–Attributed to Mahatma Gandhi

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
–Matthew 6:33 (NKJV)

Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
–Matthew 7:12 (NKJV)

No one, regardless of background, race, culture, gender, politics, religion, or other aspects of personal identity, can deny that we need love, light, and peace now! And it’s easy to blame their apparent lack on others! However, at some point we must each take responsibility for our own inner environment. The saying, “Charity begins at home,” also applies to love, light, and peace. They also begin at home–within ourselves.

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

Refrain:
[‘Cause] These are the days of Love;
These are the days of Light!
These are the days of Peace,
So make them the days of your life!

1. You cannot see it now, can you?
If you wonder how, stand firm and true!
Be the Love you need,
Shine the Light you seek;
Give the Peace to bring you through!
Refrain:

2. You cannot do without, can you?
People all around, so sorry and blue.
Be the Love that knows,
Shine the Light that glows;
Give the Peace to change the view!
Refrain:

3. But you cannot heal, can you?
The compassion you feel is the Spirit of Truth!
Be the Love of Christ,
Shine His brilliant Light,
Give the Peace your heart wants too!
Refrain: (Twice)

These are the days of your life!

1. When the load of error is too much to bear
And the burden of proof disheartens your truth,
A stillness inside awaits to confide:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!

2. When the load of strain is hard to contain
And the burden of stress is heavy at best,
A stillness within can help you begin:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

3. When the load of sight is clouding your Light
And the burden of sound is chaos all ’round,
A stillness in you keeps breaking through:
Your advent unfolds! Christ born in your soul!
Refrain:

Refrain:
So, look inside for peace of mind.
Nothing can save but the Spirit who made you.
Worry and woe, let ’em go,
And lift your eyes to find
The Christ Light in your mind!

Mountain of the Lord

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.

Mountain of the Lord – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
*”Come!
Let us go up (3x)
Up to the mountain of the Lord!
Repeat from *.

1. His house is greatest,
His mountain highest,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

2. There on his mountain,
His ways he teaches,
And every nation shall flow to it, saying,
Refrain:

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 us go up (3x)

Masterpiece

This is a good song for any time of year, but especially just after the U.S. presidential election and Veterans/armistice Day!

Instruments: Egg shaker, zills (finger cymbals)

1. United we stand
And reach out our hands
In circles that never cease.
As energy spreads
All beings are fed.
So may we be linked in peace!

2. With every demand,
We try to expand,
So differences may decrease.
But look on ahead
With caring instead,
For love is the bond that frees!

3. O reach out your hand
And joyfully stand
In making a masterpiece!
Your heart and your head,
In unity fed,
Encircle the soul of peace!


This song is an alouette, like
Carpe Diem – Seize the Day!

Power of a Song

Instrument: Brio – Red Cedar Concert Ukulele

1. Ever wonder why you hum?
It’s to keep from feeling glum!
You sit a while and find a smile
To meet whatever comes.
When the music starts to play,
You open to the day,
Shed worry in a hurry,
Knowing everything’s OK.

Refrain:
“But it’s only music!” folks reply
When I say it’s love and light.
Just let it touch you when you’re down
Or help you right a wrong,
And you’ll know the power of a song;
You’ll know the power of a song.

2. When it sounds a little sad,
Music gathers up the bad.
It matches you and catches you,
And lifts you till you’re glad.
If your heart is feeling cold,
That song’s worth more than gold.
It warms you up and fills your cup
With comfort for the soul.
Refrain:

3. If you don’t know who you are,
There’s a song that does, by far.
Let it shake you up and wake you up
And lead you to the stars.
‘Cause that brilliant spark and shine
Is the One and All-divine
Who rings in you and sings in you
A special song of life!

“‘Cause it’s not just music!” I reply,
And I say it’s love and light.
Just let it touch you when you’re down
Or help you right a wrong,
And you’ll know the power of a song;
You have the power of a song!

Refrain:
Even Christ was a child once!
So how can you be anything else?
Even Christ was a child once!
So be gentle with yourself.
Yeah, be gentle with yourself.

1. You might be all grown up on the outside,
But on the inside you still cry.
Oh don’t be sad or let it make you mad,
And here’s the reason why.
Refrain:

2. You might take care of children and others,
Thinkin’ no one cares for you.
Oh don’t give up or hold back your love,
‘Cause you are precious too.
Refrain:

3. You might be lookin’ for an answer
To somethin’ you don’t understand.
Oh be a child with a faithful mind,
And know the pow’r at hand.
Refrain: (Twice)

Be gentle with yourself.

Cutting Edge

1. So many rules to follow in this life,
At work and school and in the places
Where we sleep at night.
And as we try obeying all the rules,
Let’s take the time to realize
The Principle of Truth!
Refrain:

2. Each lifetime is a classroom or a stage
With all the props and prizes
As rewards if we behave.
And as we do our best to play the part,
Let’s never miss the bliss of being
Who we are at heart!
Refrain:

And the whisp’ring hopes convey
There is a better way!
So listen to the Spirit
As you meditate and pray!
Refrain:

3. We see our health as anything but strong,
The treatments running rampant
Like the litany of wrongs.
And as we ask the questions for a cure,
Let’s bring to mind the One Divine
Who healed us all before!
Refrain:

And when the Spirit speaks, oh may we hear!

Refrain:
‘Cause We’re living on the cutting edge of Consciousness,
Where we can seek and find our purpose here.
The only thing to do,
It’s simple but it’s true,
Is keep our mind and body pathways clear
And do the Will of Spirit in good cheer!

New Testament Quotations

from New American Standard Bible (NASB)

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
–John 1:14

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
–Matthew 5:16

When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES.”
–Matthew 8:16-17

Carried Away – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain:
Carried away, carried away!
Bondage and sickness are carried away!

1. Christ is the vessel of one perfect Word,
Speaking away every feeling of hurt;
So we may glorify God and His work,
Sickness is carried away!
Refrain:

2. Christ is the only begotten from God,
Showing compassion in deed and in thought;
So we may know every blessing He brought,
Sickness is carried away!
Refrain:

3. Christ is the vessel that carries us through,
Offering solace for me and for you;
So we may seek Him and live in the truth,
Sickness is carried away!
Refrain: (Twice)
