Lyrics:
If you can hear my voice now God
Then won’t you take this song to be a gift of love
I hope you hear me say

Thank-you for the sun
And thank-you for the stars
For all that you have done
And for all the things you are
May you know I have a grateful heart

And if one life is all I’ve got
Then now I tell you God
I’m grateful and in awe of the world around me

Thank-you for the sun
And thank-you for the moon
For all that I’ve become
And for all that I’ve been through
May you know this grateful heart’s for you

You found me in the night
When my life was filled with pain
And you reached me with your light
And your angels kept me safe
Now I find you in the skies
And within the falling rain
You are hidden in all life
And in every breath I take
And now that I have seen
I will never be the same
And you will have a grateful heart in me

And if I should stumble once again;
Fall in darkness without end
On your grace I will depend
And when I heal, I’ll say

Thank-you for the hurt
And thank-you for my pain
And thank-you for this life
And how it’s opened me in ways
That made me see
A grateful heart in me

Oh now I see a grateful heart in me

The Alchemy of Love: Rumi Poetry (pt.3)

We rarely hear the inward music,
but we’re all dancing to it nevertheless
directed by the one who teaches us,
the pure joy of the sun,
our music master.
Rumi

“Human beings, vegetables or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune intoned in the distance by an invisible player.”
– Albert Einstein

THE ALCHEMY OF LOVE

You come to us
from another world

From beyond the stars
and void of space.
Transcendent, Pure,
Of unimaginable beauty,
Bringing with you
the essence of love

You transform all
who are touched by you.
Mundane concerns,
troubles, and sorrows
dissolve in your presence,
Bringing joy
to ruler and ruled
To peasant and king

You bewilder us
with your grace.
All evils
transform into
goodness.

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul
of every being.

Through your love
existence and nonexistence merge.
All opposites unite.
All that is profane
becomes sacred again.

If We Hold on Together – Diana Ross (with lyrics)

If We Hold on Together – Diana Ross

Don’t lose your way
With each passing day
You’ve come so far
Don’t throw it away
Live believing
Dreams are for weaving
Wonders are waiting to start
Live your story
Faith, hope and glory
Hold to the truth in your heart

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

Souls in the wind
Must learn how to bend
Seek out a star
Hold on to the end
Valley, mountain
There is a fountain
Washes our tears all away
Words are swaying
Somebody is praying
Please let us come home to stay

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
Where clouds roll by
For you and I

When we are out there in the dark
We’ll dream about the sun
In the dark we’ll feel the light
Warm our hearts, everyone

If we hold on together
I know our dreams will never die
Dreams see us through to forever
As high as souls can fly
The clouds roll by
For you and I

Enigma – Rivers of Belief [HQ]

To me, this song is about mystical love and returning to the heart of our belief in the rivers of our soul. I like this extended version of the song.

Take me back to the rivers of belief
Take me back to the rivers of belief
my friend
I look inside my heart
I look inside my soul
I promise you
I will return
And when the Lamb opened the seventh seal
silence covered the sky
Take me back to the rivers of belief
Take me back to the rivers of belief
my friend
I look inside my heart
I look inside my soul
I’m reaching out for you
Lets hope one day
We’ll rest in peace
on my rivers of belief
