Song For A Winter’s Night

The lamp is burning low upon my table top
The snow is softly falling
The air is still within the silence of my room
I hear your voice softly calling

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
Upon this winter night with you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead
My glass is almost empty
I read again between the lines upon the page
The words of love you sent me

If I could know within my heart
That you were lonely too
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
Upon this winter night with you

The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are lifting
The morning light steals across my window pane
Where webs of snow are drifting

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
And to be once again with you
To be once again with you 

Eternal Spirit of the living Christ,
I know not how to ask or what to say;
I only know my need, as deep as life,
And only You can teach me how to pray.

Come, pray in me the prayer I need this day;
Help me to see Your purpose and Your will--
Where I have failed, what I have done amiss;
Held in forgiving love, let me be still.

Come with the strength I lack, bring vision clear
Of neighbour’s need, of all humanity;
Fulfillment of my life in love outpoured,
My life in You, O Christ; Your love in me. 

IF

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings---nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And---which is more---you'll be a Man, my son! 

Rudyard Kipling

 

Hey it's me what a big surprise
Calling you up from a restaurant
Around the bend
I just got in from way up north
I'm aching tired now
And I could use a friend
I might be a fool
To think that you do
Want to see me again
It's been awhile since I talked to you
Nothing wrong
Just nothing ever goes as planned


Many times I thought I'd call
I didn't have your number in my hand
I know it's true
You'd never do
The same thing to me
I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I should call
It just reminds us of the COST Of everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all
Maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
If we each forgive a little bit
And we both look back on it
As just bad timing that's all


We used to have so many plans
Something always seemed to turn out wrong
I never could catch up to you
Moving on and doing what you've done
I don't know why
The harder I try
The harder it comes
I never meant to make you cry
And though I know I should call
It just reminds us of the COST
Of everything we've lost
Bad timing that's all
Maybe soon there'll come a day
When no more tears will fall
If we each forgive a little bit
When we both look back on it
Just bad timing that's all
We each forgive a little bit
When we both look back on it
Just bad timing that's all


Up on melancholy hill
There's a plastic tree
Are you here with me?
Just looking out on the day
Of another dream

Well you can't get what you want
But you can get me
So let's set up and see
'Cause you are my medicine
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

So call in the submarines
'Round the world well go
Does anybody know
If were looking out on the day
Of another dream

If you can't get what you want
Then you come with me

Up on melancholy hill
Sits a manatee
Just looking out on the day
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

 

Beautiful song, but shredded up by the worst ever guitar solo?  LOL

You be the judge!

Let There Be Light

Text: Frances W. Davis 
Music: Robert J.B. Fleming, 1967 
Tune: CONCORD, Meter: 47.76


1.	Let there be light, 
	let there be understanding, 
	let all the nations gather, 
	let them be face to face. 

2.	Open our lips, 
	open our minds to ponder, 
	open the door of concord 
	opening into grace. 

3.	Perish the sword, 
	perish the angry judgment, 
	perish the bombs and hunger, 
	perish the fight for gain. 

4.	Hallow our love, 
	hallow the deaths of martyrs, 
	hallow their holy freedom, 
	hallowed be your name. 

5.	Your kingdom come, 
	your Spirit turn to language, 
	your people speak together, 
	your Spirit never fade. 

6.	Let there be light, 
	open our hearts to wonder, 
	perish the way of terror, 
	hallow the world God made. 

There's a dark fading light
In the garden where you
Lay your head tonight
Through the darkened hours
Were you thinking of me?
A state of sleep
Is what you'd rather be

There's a pale
Purple moonlight
In the garden where you
Lay your head to die
Frozen dreams and nightmares
Have you forgetting a dream
Of what you always thought
You could have been…

Hey don't draw the line
Did you know that you're right
So baby blue don't cry
Don't you go now…
Don't you go now…

There's a stale morning light
In the garden where you lay
All through the night
Through this poisoned nightmare
Have you set yourself free?
With thoughts and dreams
Of what you're gonna be…

Hey don't draw the line
Did you know that you're right
So baby blue don't cry
Don't you go now…
Don't you go now…

Hey don't draw the line
Did you know it'll be all right
So baby blue don't cry
Don't you go now…
Don't you go now…

Hey don't draw the line
Did you know it'll be all right
My baby blues don't cry
Don't you go now…
Don't you go now…
Hey don't draw the line
Did you know that you're right
So baby blue don't cry
Don't you go now…
Don't you go now… 

 

Once I thought I saw you
in a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light
from star to star.
Far across the moonbeam
I know that's who you are,
I saw your green eyes
turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

I am just a dreamer,
but you are just a dream,
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

You are just a dreamer,
and I am just a dream.
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away. 

Some people think that they're the only one with a capacity to love or to feel sorrow or pain.  We all can!

Hardly worth getting on my soapbox... :/
