Here’s sharing this worship video. As described by Brian McLaren in this website, it is a beautiful worship experience indeed, replete with grand visuals of creation’s beauty and stirring voices and music of humanity. I like the lyrics as well as quotes in the song, such as the quote by Richard Rohr.

“If we are created in the image and likeness of God, then whatever good, true or beautiful things we can say about humanity or creation, we can say of God exponentially. God is the beauty of creation and humanity multiplied to the infinite power.” Fr Richard Rohr

Yes, may God give us new eyes to see, new skin to feel, new lungs to breathe the wonder underneath, faith like a mustard seed to swim in God’s (Love’s) mystery. May we embrace the enchantment of the world and see the glory of God/Love that fills the earth.

Bette Midler- Wind Beneath My Wings – Lyrics

I remember listening to this song a few years ago and I had a revelation that the song might well describe Jesus who is all the while enabling me to shine with his light while he is content to remain in the background, hiding his own glory. I have come to see that he is Christ in us the hope of glory, and the hero is living within us.

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

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”.
