Voices Of Spring

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words based upon an essay by Mary Baker Eddy

“Spring, waking up the world” fills the earth with hieroglyphs of Love
“The snowbird chirps, the brooklet sings” as the breeze whistles through the air
“The white winged dove” cradles her young with a tender “mother’s evening prayer”

Like a bending alder looking through a “water mirror”
Shaking its leafy hair, let us “look through Love’s transparency”
To find God’s image there

And like the tender blade of grass, shall we with patient poise
Fill each and ev’ry “returning year” with “purer peace and higher joys!”
Then “goodness will have its springtide of freedom”

As we lift our heads like violets to the heav’ns above
And let “man, more friendly call his race as gently as the springtide
As the springtide of Christ’s dear love.”

Bless His Holy Name

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words adapted from The Bible (Psalms)

Praise ye the mighty King
Praise Him in the highest
Praise ye the heav’nly Father
Bless His holy name

Praise Him, Praise Him on the trumpet
Praise Him with a ten-stringed instrument
Praise Him with the psalt’ry, with the cymbal, with the cornet!

Thank you Lord, full of grace
For your love which fills all time and space, thank you Lord
For each bright, blessed day, and yout tender, chast’ning, guiding way
Thank you Lord

Only Truth I see, reflected Lord from Thee
Only Love reflecting in love

Thank you Lord, Gracious Peace
For your angels bringing sweet release
Thank you, Lord.

As A Little Child
Music by Desiree Goyette and Ed Bogas
Lyrics: Desiree Goyette and Ed Bogas

To become as a little child and leave the old for new
That’s what we must do to keep growing
And as understanding changes to a clearer view
Truth comes shining through for the knowing

To live a prayer is to demonstrate the power of Love to conquer hate
And Love will wait for you, to see each shadow through

Joy to leave what’s false behind and watch it disappear
Truth grows ever near as we listen
“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”
Through the eyes of a little child.

Even As The Father

Music by Désirée Goyette
Lyrics: Désirée Goyette

Not of the earth, not of the dust,
God’s man innocent and pure
Man is not fallen, man cannot fail
For his heritage is holy secure

Shining reflections, children of light
Singing through the darkest night
Strengthened by Spirit, conquering ev’ry lie
With the “loveliness of Love” which never dies

“Be ye therefore perfect even as the Father”
Ev’ry step a moment of glorious birth
For man is upright, he is not fallen,
Not of the earth

And so the Shepherd has washed them clean
Robed in radiance, crowned in light
Claim all His blessings, make them your own
For each blessing is your noble right

“Be ye therefore perfect even as the Father”
Ev’ry step a moment of dignity
For man is upright, he is upright
Arise, God’s man is free!

Behold, What Manner Of Love

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words from The Bible (I John 3:1-3)

Behold, what manner of love He hath bestowed on us
That we should be called the sons of God
Therefore the world knoweth us not
Because it knew him not

Beloved, now are we the sons of God
And it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
But we know that when He shall appear
We shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as he is

And ev’ry man that hath this hope in him
Purifieth himself, even as he is pure
Behold, what manner of love He hath bestowed on us
That we should be called the sons of God.

I Am The Lord

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words adapted from The Bible (Isaiah 2:22, 4:56; 51:12)

I am the Lord, there is none else, there is no God beside me
I girded thee, I girded thee, though thou hast not even known me
But know me from the rising sun, to the west there is none beside me
For I am the Lord, there is none else, there is no God beside me

I, even I, am he that comforteth you
Who art thou, that thou should’st be afraid of a man that shall die
And of the son of man which shall be made as grass

Cease ye from man, made of the earth
For wherein is he accounted of?
But rather look ye, only to Him whose life is in everlasting Love

For I am the Lord, there is none else, there is no God beside me
I girded thee, I girded thee, though thou hast not even known me
I am the Lord, I am the Lord.

Londonderry (O Dreamer)

Lyrics by Rosa M Turner
Music by Desiree Goyette

O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking,
O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free;
The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking,
Unloosing bonds of all captivity.

He comes to bless thee on his wings of healing;
To banish pain, and wipe all tears away;
He comes anew, to humble hearts revealing
The mounting footsteps of the upward way.

He comes to give thee joy for desolation,
Beauty for ashes of the vanished years;
For every tear to bring full compensation,
To give thee confidence for all thy fears.

He comes to call the dumb to joyful singing;
The deaf to hear; the blinded eyes to see;
The glorious tidings of salvation bringing.
O captive, rise, thy Saviour comes to thee.

Heavenward (I Love Thy Way of Freedom, Lord)

Lyrics by Violet Hay
Music by Desiree Goyette

I love thy way of freedom, Lord,
To serve thee is my choice,
In thy clear light of truth I rise
And, listening for thy voice,
I hear thy promise old and new,
That bids all fear to cease:
My presence still shall go with thee
And I will give thee peace.

Though storm or discord cross my path
Thy power is still my stay,
Though human will and woe would check
My upward-soaring way;
All unafraid I wait, the while
Thy angels bring release,
For still Thy presence is with me,
And Thou dost give me peace.

I climb, with joy, the heights of mind,
To soar o’er time and space;
I yet shall know as I am known
And see thee face to face.
Till time and space and fear are naught
My quest shall never cease,
Thy presence ever goes with me
And thou dost give me peace.

From Where He Stands

Music by Désiré Goyette
Lyrics: Désirée Goyette

From where he stands everything’s taken care of
Ev’ry one has their share of what they need
Held in His hands there’s not a thing to be afraid of
Loving away the shade of wondering where this life will lead

From where he stands I can see the shadows fading
The darkness masquerading as the light
And as I see myself the way Love sees me
The image of it frees me from the struggle, from the fight

So wide awake, I become a dancer,
Living just to answer Love’s commands
Never again to fall from where He stands

From where He stands there are no conflicting voices
Forcing me to choices far from Soul
As I receive the message Love is sending
I hear the voices blending what was sep’rate now is whole

And through Love’s eyes I see my true reflection
Sense the sweet perfection of His plan
Growing is just discovering, seeking and then uncovering,
No longer marking time on shifting sands

Ev’rything’s crystal clear from where He stands.
