    This Quiet Place
    Lyrics by Peter Link
    Music by Carol Jay

    In this world
    Where the crush of life just happens
    In the rush
    I don't stop to watch the moon in the sky
    'Cause it's all that I can do
    To keep on runnin'
    Rolling through the tangles of my mind

    Yet the moon
    Hangs in silent stillness o'er me
    While I run
    And I chase the dreams that pass me by
    I remember then the things
    That I have lived by
    And return again
    To the stillness of the sky

    And in this quiet place
    Time doesn't matter much
    The world goes turning on its own
    In its own time

    I watch the summer moon
    And here in this quiet grace
    I know I'm all I need to be
    And the world is mine

    [Interlude]

    Here I stand
    In the silence of my being
    With the phosphorus of heavens
    Shining down on me
    Like a blanket o'er this earth
    In solemn presence
    Shining on as far as I can see

    And in this quiet place
    Time's insignificance
    Makes me laugh at all the ways
    That I run my life
    I watch the summer moon
    And here in this quiet grace
    I know I'm all I need to be
    And the world is mine

    Yes in this silent grace
    This sum of all things in space
    I feel the oneness of all life
    In this quiet place

    Sweet Purity
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    My childhood dreams are faded
    And life is not at all
    As I thought it would be
    For everywhere I look the world is jaded
    And time moves on
    While I'm madly turning corners
    Searching for the child in me

    Sweet purity
    Deep within the memory of me
    I long for my sweet purity
    Deep within me

    Rollin' on an' on
    An' on an' on in me

    My shallow hopes have ended
    And I am not at all as I thought I would be
    In time the shattered images are mended
    And life goes on
    While I'm slowly learning lessons
    Looking for the child in me

    Sweet purity
    Deep within the memory of me
    I long for my sweet purity
    Deep within me

    And there
    Behind the staggered steps of time
    And there
    Behind the shambles of a lifetime
    I am seeking out the traces of a child
    I'm searching for my
    Sweet purity
    Deep within the memory of me
    I long for my sweet purity
    Deep within me

    Rollin' on an' on
    An' on an' on in me
    I'm searching for my
    Sweet purity
    Rollin' on an' on in me
    I've been looking all over this world
    But I think I'll find it
    Deep down within the very soul of me

    I Think on These Things
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    When I consider the heavens
    The works of thy fingers
    The moon and the stars
    You ordained

    When I consider a child
    The steps that he's taking
    His light and his joy
    So ingrained

    When I think of the way
    That each breath comes unnoticed
    Sustaining this delicate life

    I am swept off my feet
    In breathless wonder
    At the mystery of life

    When I consider the music
    Of all the great masters
    And know it was you
    They all heard

    And the works of our Shakespeares
    King Davids and Keats
    You gave them each
    Every word

    When I contemplate
    The pure fabric of nature
    Bewildered by all we have learned

    I am swept off my feet
    In breathless wonder
    At the miracle of life

    And I think on these things
    And the wonder life brings
    From the greatest of things to the small
    And though I spend my life
    Searching life's solemn secrets
    I know I'll never know all

    As I ponder the atom
    The boundless vast ether
    The billions of lives
    On this stone

    I consider the gift
    Of God's imagination
    And begin to explore
    The unknown

    But this whimsical world
    It just slips through my fingers
    As I try to hold on to the air

    And I'm swept off my feet
    In breathless wonder
    At the miracle of life

    And I think on these things
    Yes I think on these things
    And the wonder life brings

    Child of God
    Music and Lyrics by Mindy Jostyn

    I am worthy (3x)
    'Cause I know who I am
    I'm the child of God

    [Chorus]
    If anybody asks you now who I am (3x)
    You can tell him I'm a child of God
    He made me by His power and He made me good (2x)
    He loves me every hour, like a father should

    He made me in His image, so He made me good (2x)
    He's calling me to glory like a father would
    I surely love Him back with all my heart

    [Chorus]

    When I step outside, that's when my troubles rise (2x)
    I call upon the Lord to stem the rising tide
    And I know my father hears my cries

    [Chorus]

    Upon the Mountain
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Outside time
    And beyond all space
    There is Truth
    And then there's all the rest
    There is Truth
    And then there's all the rest

    How do you find it
    How do you get there
    How can you possibly break through

    You start by going to the secret place
    The innermost points of control
    The deepest recesses of your inner space
    The still point of your soul

    Where matter doesn't matter
    And Mind is all in all
    And Truth pours forth like a fountain
    Where darkness is not known
    And light is all there is
    And it's simply you and God
    Upon the mountain

    Upon the mountain

    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Outside time
    And beyond all space

    East of the sun
    And west of the moon
    Outside time
    And beyond all space

    There is Truth
    And then there's all the rest

    And it's simply you and God
    Upon the mountain

    Nothing
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    What is the chaff to the wheat?
    Nothing
    What is the dross to the gold?
    What is the darkness to light?
    Nothing
    Nothing's still nothing a thousand fold

    Nothing's no more than a fraud
    Trying to be something when really it's nothing
    Claiming existence with no real consistency
    What is matter to God?
    What is matter to God?
    Nothing
    Nothing

    What is the false to the truth?
    Nothing
    What are the tears to the crier?
    What is an absence to presence?
    Nothing
    What is the ash to the raging fire?

    What is the gain if a million lives
    Are lost while the world is obsessed making war?
    What is the point? Dear Lord! What are the spoils?
    What on earth is it for?
    What on earth is it all for?
    Nothing
    Nothing

    What is the past to the present?
    Nothing
    What are the remnants of time?
    What are the scraps and shavings of dreams
    Forgotten and long left behind?

    What of a thought considered then spurned
    And left in the dust forsaken?
    What was it worth? What does it matter?
    If it was simply mistaken

    What is death to life?
    Nothing
    What are the findings discovered by science?
    What are the laws on which we place reliance
    When we find the findings were flawed?
    What is matter to God?
    Nothing
    Nothing

    What is the chaff to the wheat?
    Nothing

    Cathedral of the Heart
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Lately it's like I'm livin'
    In some filthy Times Square cheap hotel room
    Fear in every corner
    Flashing neon in the night

    Fighting all my demons
    Though I'm losing in the battle
    And I'm trapped here in the shadows
    To the devil's mad delight

    Nothing seems to work for me
    I hate this life for all its trouble
    Give me one excuse
    And I could pack it all in

    No one seems to give a damn
    I hate myself for all I am
    Yet one thing remembered
    One thing somebody said
    Still runs through my head
    Yeah it still runs through my head

    If you pierce through the fabric
    And get down beneath the skin
    You can open up a hole
    And let the love come in

    Then love will have its way with you
    And tear the veil apart
    Til' it leaves you standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart
    Love will leave you standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart
    Yes it will leave you standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart

    But I can't seem to get out of this
    Filthy Times Square cheap hotel room
    It's burned into my mind
    An' I just can't let go

    Everywhere I turn it's just a
    Mucked up mess of pure frustration
    Crashing through my life
    An' I just can't say "no"

    If I could just listen to
    The two cents someone tried to tell me
    Turn my life around
    Before I crash and burn

    Take the best that's for the taking
    Shake the habits that need breaking
    Take a hold of my life
    When will I ever learn to follow my light
    Oh I just got to to follow my light
    I just got to to follow my light
    I just got to to follow my light
    Ohhh

    And it will leave me standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart
    I can feel it now
    Love is havin' its way with me

    And it will leave me standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart
    Light light
    Can you see the light?!!

    Thank you Lord
    I got shoes on my feet
    I got somethin' to eat
    I got the air that I breathe
    An' I thank you for lovin' me
    I jus' wanna say
    Hallelujah
    'Cause love has freed me

    An' right now
    I make a promise to you
    To do all I can do
    To keep your love runnin' through me
    An' your light comin' to me
    Take a hold of my life
    An' turn to that light
    And let love lead

    And leave me standing
    In the cathedral of the heart

    Yes love will leave me standin'
    In the cathedral of the heart!

    A Still Small Voice
    Adapted from 1 Kings
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    There is something in the stillness
    Calling softly to me
    Even though I'm all alone
    And the sound is like nothing
    I've ever heard or seen
    And it's calling from the deep unknown

    Then the mountains move
    And the cold wind roars
    And the fire fills the sky
    But temptation always passes by

    Leaving something in the stillness
    Calling softly to me
    'Woman don't you run and hide
    You shall not be afraid
    You can trust in me
    If you listen to the voice inside'

    "When the mountains move
    And the cold wind roars
    And the fire fills the sky
    The temptation always passes by
    If you listen to me'

    It's a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Calling to me

    It's a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Calling to me

    There is something in the silence
    When I quiet my mind
    And the water's rolling over me
    And the hush it is endless
    And the song runs free
    And the voice is like a melody

    And the time shall come
    When the choice is made
    And the voice deep inside
    Will stay with me and be my guide
    Through the waters ahead

    It's a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Calling to me

    It's a still small voice
    Oh a still small voice
    Can you hear it?
    It's a still small voice
    Calling to me

    Can you hear it calling?

    Words Upon the Wall
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link
    Additional Lyrics by Mary Baker Eddy

    I sit and ponder these words
    Upon the wall
    Burned into my memory
    Throughout all these years
    And the tears of a grateful heart
    Fall through my life
    As my joy springs forth
    At the miracle of this humble simple truth

    "Divine Love
    Always has met
    And always will meet
    Every human need."
    That's every human need
    Words upon the wall
    Words upon the wall

    I sit and wonder what I would do
    Without these words
    These pure and simple certainties
    That have carried me through
    For the love that is in my heart
    Fills up my life
    And I stand here in awe
    At the miracle of this humble simple truth

    "Divine Love
    Always has met
    And always will meet
    Every human need."
    That's every human need

    Words upon the wall
    Calling out to me
    Setting me free from my fears
    Words upon the wall
    Reassuring me
    And setting me free through the years

    Words upon the wall
    "God is love"
    Meeting all my needs
    I stand in awe of these simple truths
    These words upon the wall

    On Eagle's Wings
    Music and Lyrics by Michael Joncas

    Chorus:
    And He will raise you up on eagle's wings
    Bear you on the breath of dawn
    Make you to shine like the sun
    And hold you in the palm of His hand.

    You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord
    Who abide in His shadow for life
    Say to the Lord, "My refuge
    My rock in whom I trust."

    [Chorus]

    The snare of the fowler will never capture you
    And famine will bring you no fear
    Under His wings your refuge
    His faithfulness your shield.

    [Chorus]

    You need not fear the terror of the night
    Nor the arrow that flies by day
    Though thousands fall about you
    Near you it shall not come.

    [Chorus]

    For to His angels He's given a command
    To guard you in all of your ways
    Upon their hands they will bear you up
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

    [Chorus]

    In the palm of His hand.
