Sarah Brightman – Eden (Enigma Remix)

Realising the Eden or Paradise within us.

Perhaps Love – John Denver & Placido Domingo (Lyrics)

I like the music and lyrics as well as the nature scenery videos, which are poetic. Yes, perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm. It exists to give us comfort and warmth. And yes, love is our raison d’etre, our reason for being here – to live loved and loving others.

Living in the unforced rhythms of grace. by Godfrey Birtill

Video commentary:

Living in the unforced rhythms of grace. by Godfrey Birtill (Thankyou Music UK ©)
From the album The Wine is Alive Godfrey Birtill & Friends (Release Date 31/10/11). Pre order at www.godfreyb.com

I love the mellow and soothing music, and the meditative and assuring lyrics, such as the refrains “Be still” near the beginning of the song, and “Living in the unforced rhythm of grace”, and also “It’s time to quit trying to please Him”. It’s addictively pleasing and wonderfully catchy to listen to over and over again.

Two thousand years ago we bled into one. Godfrey Birtill (Rough Demo)

Listening to the first few lines of this song and reading the lyrics brought a resounding Amen in my heart. Yep – it’s the gospel of inclusion in the unconditional, universal love of God as I understand it. 🙂

Two thousand years ago, we bled into one
And when I think of it, I’m drunk on Your love
So great is the love
That You’ve lavished on us
We are your children, O God.
.
Now every distance
Has been cancelled in Christ
And separation’s an illusion, a lie,
So great is the love
That You’ve lavished on us
We are your children, O God,
That is what we are, That is what we are;
We are your children, O God,
That is what we are, That is what we are.
.
Playing in the fields of grace
Knowing this joy of our Pa Pa’s embrace
Hear Him say, ‘I love you’
Hear Him say ‘I’ve always loved you’.
.
Wonderfully saved, secure
Beautifully raised for heaven, made pure;
Hear Him say, ‘I love you’
Hear Him say ‘I’ve always loved you’.

Yes, every distance has been cancelled in Christ and separation is an illusion, a lie.

Hijacked into Paradise

Video commentary:

Worship by Godfrey Birtill

I like especially the crescendo in the middle of the song – “God is the infinite source of Love – Inexhaustible – glorious glorious glorious glorious”. Very uplifting to listen to.

This song is a sure-fire way to raise our vibrational energy and transcend dichotomies, breaking down walls of separation, and uniting people as one, celebrating the bliss in this place.

Groovy kind of Love….Phil Collins….with Lyrics

 

ENYA – ATHAIR AR NEAMH – Irish Gaelic song with landscapes from ICELAND

Video commentary:

ENYA – ATHAIR AR NEAMH – Irish Gaelic song with my images of Icelandic landscapes from around Reykjavik and south west ICELAND, taken by me in spring – early summer 2009. Song from “The Memory of Trees”, an album by Irish musician Enya, released in 1995.

LYRICS AND TRANSLATION:

Athair ar Neamh

Irish Gaelic
Athair ar Neamh
Father in Heaven
Athair ar Neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar Neamh, Dia liom
M’anam, mo chroí, mo ghlóir,
moladh duit, a Dhia.
Fada an lá, go sámh
Fada an oích’, gan ghruaim
Aoibhneas, áthas, grá,
moladh duit, a Dhia.
Móraim thú ó lá go lá.
Móraim thú ó oích’ go hóich’.
Athair ar Neamh, Dia linn
Athair ar Neamh, Dia liom
An ghealach, an ghrian, an ghaoth,
moladh duit, a Dhia.

Father in Heaven, God bless us [1]
Father in Heaven, God bless me
My soul, my heart, my glory,
praise to you, God.
Long is the peaceful day
Long is the night without gloom
Delight, joy, love,
praise to you, God.
I glorify you day after day.
I glorify you night after night.
Father in Heaven, God bless us
Father in Heaven, God bless me
The moon, the sun, the wind,
praise to you, God.

1) A literal translation of “Dia linn” is “God be with us”.

Anam Cara, The Friend of the Soul

Anam Cara: The friend of my soul

“Anam cara” – A Gaelic word translates as “Soul friend”

“Who finds a faithful friend finds a treasure.” Jewish saying

The Cure Love song Extended mix

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am home again

Whenever I’m alone with you

You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you

However far away I will always love you

However long I stay I will always love you

Whatever words I say I will always love you

I will always love you
