POEMS

Believing Big
by Noel Davis

My mind, my heart, my world
strain like a bud
on the brink of bursting into a bigger world
where there is room
for my mind to open out and stretch its limbs
for my heart to be unfolded in the sun
for my world to be broken open by a surge of life
from Life itself
that shatters the boundaries of my believing
in what love can do.

Go to the Limits ofyour Longing
by Rainer Maria Rilke

God speaks to each of us as he makes us,
then walks with us silently out of the night.

These are the words we dimly hear:

You, sent out beyond your recall,
go to the limits of your longing.
Embody me.

Flare up like a flame
and make big shadows I can move in.

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Don't let yourself lose me.

Nearby is the country they call life.
You will know it by its seriousness.

Give me your hand.


SONGS

Out On The Tide

I open my arms wide - to catch the wind in my sails. 
I open my arms wide - to catch the wind in my sails.

And head out on the tide.
And head out on the tide.
And head out on the tide.
And head out on the tide.

Lead With Love

CHORUS
You gotta put one foot in front of the other and lead with love
PUT… one foot in front of the other, and lead with love! 

V1) Don’t give up hope \ You’re not alone \ Don’t you give up \ Keep movin’ on

CHORUS

V2) Life up your eyes \ don’t you despair \ look up ahead \ the path is there

CHORUS

V3) I know you’re scared \ and I’m scared too \ but here I am \ right next to you 

We gotta put one foot in front of the other and lead with love
PUT… one foot in front of the other, and lead with love!
