One Song 05:19
Sunset light fading slow. One star in the heavens aglow I hear - lifting away all my sorrows - A sweet melody So soft, so strong, sweet song awakens my heart Solace - far from the fire. Beauty - uplifts and inspires Wonder - the Great Song is lifting me higher The Song carries me In song we open our hearts Here in this shining night, the magic of song takes flight around me Woven through branch and air, the music is everywhere - just listen Song of the dreaming earth, in a heartbeat the Song takes birth around me Echoing all around, filling me with joyous sound Below, the whole earth is singing Above, stars dance in place Within, the tree of my heart is in blossom And beneath it I hear Circling without end, through the heavens to where I stand in wonder Woven through branch and air, the music is everywhere - just listen Song of the dreaming earth, in a heartbeat the Song takes birth around me Many voices so clear, so strong. Many voices but just one song One song - many voices we sing one song

The eve of Midwinter with moonlight on snow The brilliance of starlight reflected below. The far-reaching silence is an eloquent prayer A mantel of beauty in the frosty night air It is the deepest of seasons, the darkest of nights Despite all its wonders, I long for the light The world dreams of warm winds in the deep icy cold And the promise of sunlight yet to unfold Come light the Midwinter Fires Strike up the drums, take my hand love As the dance leads us in weaving spirals And we call back the sunshine above We call the sun's benediction To fall on all hearts -inspire us! With the truth that all life is celebration We call back the sunshine above By the dark heart of winter, I’ve forgotten the sound Of the sweet song of robins circling round. In the cold of December, it's so hard to remember The promise of springtime ‘neath the snow covered ground But in the dance of the seasons the world is renewed Barren branches will blossom into the fullness of youth Born aloft on a warm wind will come the song of the winter’s end And all weary hearts will awaken in gratitude Come light the Midwinter Fires Strike up the drums, take my hand love As the dance leads us in weaving spirals And we call back the sunshine above We call the sun's benediction To fall on all hearts -inspire us! With the truth that all life is celebration We call back the sunshine above

Bring Me Joy 03:57
I was lost and alone Wondering which way was home. The road was dark, the road was cold And then you shone... You shone as deep and bright As the evenstar - A light in the darkest night. The first time I saw your face, The sweetness of that first embrace - I knew I was home. And now when the road grows dark I lift my eyes to the stars I follow my heart home to you. They say dreams don't come true But I know they do. For we are together in summertime, The winter nights of candlelight To you I pledge my heart. And in the golden rain of autumn leaves, The tender blush of each new spring, To you I pledge my heart. You bring me joy!

Sunrise 05:26
The northern lights whirl and dance through the sky One guiding star burning bright, lighting the night The warmth and strength of your hand, enfolding mine The beating of your heart and my heart in time. We are waiting with love, waiting with hope Waiting with faith the return of grace We are recalling the joys, recalling the tears Recalling our dreams, releasing our fears Awaiting sunrise Sky growing light Stars melt away Fading from sight Brand new day Here on the hillside, the long night has passed The darkness is ending, sunrise at last Holding you close, you at my side Eyes shining bright as we welcome sunrise We are waiting with love, waiting with hope Waiting with faith the return of grace We are recalling the joys, recalling the tears Recalling our dreams, releasing our fears Embracing sunrise

Beauty before me, with it I wander Beauty behind me, with it I wander Beauty above, Beauty below Beauty within me, with it I wander Joy before me, with it I wander Joy behind me, with it I wander Joy above, Joy below Joy within me, with it I wander Wonder before me, with it I wander Wonder behind me, with it I wander Wonder above, Wonder below Wonder within me, with it I wander
