the music  
                







1)  a prayer for healing  -

child before the sun and moon
light before the light of day
song before the worlds were born
oh, hear us,
lead us in thy perfect way.

father of us all, when evening falls
help us to know each other as we really are
brothers in joy and love, the sons of God
wholly holy, sinless and free.

child before the sun and moon
light before the light of day
song before the worlds were born
oh, lead us,
in thy perfect way.

father of us all, when morning breaks
help us to see each other as we really are
each of us shining in thy heaven of heavens
wholly holy, one bright and perfect star.

child before the sun and moon
light before the light of day
song before the worlds were born
oh, lead us,
oh, lead us, in thy perfect way.


2)  derby's  -  


derby's on grove st. downtown
you can find most anything you need around town
come on in to derby's downtown

the friendly folks will help you find
a new pair of shoes, a hammer and a nail
a little baby bonnet or a garbage pail

at derby's -- derby's.



3)  feast of weeks  - 

it sure has been great to meet you
looks like we had our share of fun
the things that we made i will remember all my life
seems as though for now our work is done

take care, good luck, god bless you
it's been a good year after all
have fun, keep you safe, be happy in your heart
maybe i'll see you in the Fall.

time will surely harvest all the good things that we shared
treasures heaped up at each and every turn
'cause early in the morning, as we walked the river road
you gave me words to help me grow and learn

so
take care, good luck, god bless you
it's been a good year after all
have fun, keep you safe, be happy in your heart
maybe i'll see you in the Fall.

time will bring the fruit of all the good things that we shared
we'll watch them ripen in the sun
and tho' we drift apart through places and the years
when we bind the sheaves of golden grain, we'll be together every one.

so take care, good luck, god bless you
it's been a good year after all
have fun, keep you safe, be happy in your heart
maybe i'll see you in the Fall.


4)  i dreamed your body...  -  

i dreamed your body
 was bent just like a bow
i saw the arrow leave your mind
to a place i could not go

you said 'listen the bird sing
it might be a robin,
and look at the moon
in the mid-morning sky'

i dreamed i saw you pointing
at the sky, just like a child
saying, ' look at the quarter moon
with the north star in her arm'

i saw you were a mystery
that my heart would never know
but in hundred kisses
a mighty river flowed

i dreamed you a held me
like the quarter moon holds the star
so if we strayed a million miles
we'd never travel very far

but now you are just holding me
in the cradle of you arms
and the dream fades, and the dawn comes
and soon we'll be apart.



5)  jesus loves to hear me sing  - 


jesus love to hear me sing
raise my voice in praise to him
make the universes ring
jesus loves to hear me sing
jesus loves to hear me sing

i was just a boy when i left home
i left my mom and my dad alone
soon lost on life's great thoroughfare
an orphan crowded down with care

confused, i wandered on in sin
but sometimes heard a distant hymn
that childhood comfort seemed to lend
remind me jesus was still my friend

jesus love to hear me sing
raise my voice in praise to him
make the universes ring
jesus loves to hear me sing

in rock and roll casinos and smokey bars
and ocean tossed underneath the stars
sometimes a half forgotten choice
would bring to me my Savior's voice

at last illusions all were lost
for sense and pleasure they took their cost
when i had nothing left to win
then jesus brought me home to him

repeat CHO.

i'm standing in the Sunday choir
i feel his joy lift higher and higher
and with the angels around the throne
we all unite in shining song

repeat CHO.  3 x  etc.


6)  love is.....  -  

love is sharing, love is sharing
love is honestly sharing
the special someone you really are
love is sharing.....love.

love is caring, love is caring
love is caring for one another
each day in a thoughtful way
love is caring ....... love

la, la, la, la, la la, la, la

early love i a burning
it's a yearning
a longing deep inside.
later, love is a peaceful feeling  
a quiet time, understanding...

love is giving, love is giving
love is giving what someone needs
without thinking of return
love is giving.... love

la, la, la, la, la la, la, la

early love i a burning
it's a yearning
a longing deep inside.
later, love is a peaceful feeling  
a quiet time, understanding...
    

love is growing, love is growing
love is growing like a tree
in Springtime harmony
love is growing .... love

la, la, la, la, la la, la, la
      
love is flowing, love is flowing
love is flowing like a song
in Springtime harmony
love is flowing .... love

la, la, la,  .... love  
love
love
love
                                   

7)  naylor's  -   

they're gettin' it together at Naylor's
Naylor's on 101
you can call it what you want to
but when everything is said done

they're gettin' it together at Naylor's
Naylor's on 101
    

it's a little bit more than a snack bar
more than a country store
more than just a fruit and vegetable stand
it's a restaurant but it's so much more

come on all you big strong he-men
pull up in your pickup truck
get yourself a hearty lunch or breakfast
grab that chain saw, good luck!


they're gettin' it together at Naylor's
Naylor's on 101
you can call it what you want to
but when everything is said done

they're gettin' it together at Naylor's
Naylor's on 101
    

get you apple a day, keep the doctor away
get your produce fresh from the farm
you can order up the java, strong as molten lava
tune your beeper to the fire alarm

don't get lost in the shuffle,
don't lose out in the race
'cause you can fall by anytime and relax there
it's a family place.

repeat CHO.

...Naylor's snack-bar,
Naylor's on 101.

8)  seven stars -

oh, bless the day, oh, bless the day
that the seven stars were born
early in the morning
it makes me feel so happy
early in the morning

i saw the big dipper hanging low
in the northern sky
right above the rectory
it made me feel so happy
early in the evening

a shooting star fell across
the great I AM is reigning now
in my heart forever
it makes feel so happy
early in the evening

oh, bless the day, oh, bless the day
that the son of man born
early in the morning
it makes me feel so happy
early in the morning

10)  song of the night  - 

let us go, let us go
let us go, oh, let us go

my heart is full
of the song of the night
of the mother and child i am with
full of the song of the wind
the song of you

let us go, let us go
oh, let us go,

where peace will fill the sunset
let us go, let us go
where peace will fill our home
let us go, oh, let us go

for
my heart is full
of the song of the night
and of the mother and child i am with
full of the song of the darkening hills
and the song of you

let us go,
where peace rolls from the mountains
let us go, let us go
where peace rolls on the plains
let us go,  let us go

for my heart is full
of the song of the night
of the mother and child i am with
full of the song of the wind
and the song of you


let us go, let us go
let us go, oh, let us go
to the stillness of the water
let us go, let us go
to the stillness of the heart

or my heart is full
of the song of the night
of the mother and child i am with
full of the song of the darkening hills
and the song of you


let us go, let us go
the song of you.
