Lyrics

As a Little Child

Music and Lyrics: Desiree Goyette 1

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

23rd Psalm

Lyrics: Psalm 23
Music: Lily Oyer & Laurie Bay Oyer 2

The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
I shall not want
The Lord is my shepherd
I shall not want
I shall not want

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside still waters
He restoreth my soul
He leadeth me in paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake

Yea, though I walk
Through the valley
Of the shadow of death

Though I walk
Through the valley
Of the shadow of death

I will fear no evil
For thou art with me
For thou art with me

Thy rod and thy staff
They comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me
In the presence of mine enemies

Thou anointest my head with oil
My cup runneth over

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life
And I will dwell
In the house
Of the Lord
Forever and ever. Amen.

God is All (Angels)

Lyrics: Mary Baker Eddy
Adapted Words: Laurie Bay Oyer 3
Music: Lily Oyer & Laurie Bay Oyer 2

Angels, pure and perfect intuition
Angels, spirit bringing inspiration
Angels, Angels, Angels.

God’s Love guides us every single moment
God’s Love brings us closer to atonement
God’s Love, God’s Love, God’s Love

God is all to me and you.
God is all to me and you

God’s light casts out sin and all the darkness
God’s love shines its light on all the goodness
God’s light, God’s Love, God’s light.

God is all to me and you
God is all to me and you

When angels visit us we listen
We feel their presence by their love in our hearts
God’s angels govern you, the Psalmist saith
Pure ideas that light your path.

God is all to me and you
God is all to me you

Angels, pure and perfect intuition
Angels, spirit bringing inspiration
True Love, true light from God.

Pray Today

Words and Music: Laurie Bay Oyer 4

God is good
God is great
Thank God for all His goodness everyday.

When we wake
And all through the day
In the evening
Always pray, always pray
Pray today, always pray.

God is good
God is great
Thank God for all His goodness everyday.

Sometimes doubt seems like a big black cloud
It tries to hide the light that guards and guides
Stand your ground
Don’t let fear bring you down
Turn away from the darkness
And pray today.

Pray today
When we wake
Pray today
All through the day
Pray today
Always pray
Pray today.

God is good
God is great
Thank God for all His goodness
Pray today.

God is good
God is great
Thank God for all His goodness
Everyday

When we wake
And all through the day
In the evening
Always pray, always pray
Pray today, always pray.

God is good
God is great
Thank God for all His goodness
Everyday

Sometimes doubt seems like a big black cloud
It tries to hide the light that guards and guides
Stand your ground
Don’t let fear bring you down
Turn away from the darkness
And pray today.

Pray today
When we wake
Pray today
All through the day
Pray today
Always pray
Pray today.

Consecrated to Thee

Adapted Words: Frances R. Havergal 5
Music: Peter B. Allen 6

Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moments and my days
Let them flow in ceaseless praise
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy Love.

Take my feet and let them me
Swift and beautiful for Thee
Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my King

Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
Take my every heart thought to use
In the way that Thou shalt choose

Take my Love, O Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasures store
I am thine and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

On Eagle’s Wings

Words & Music: Michael Joncas 7

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.”

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
In the palm of His Hand.

91st Psalm

Lyrics: Psalm 91
Music: Lily Oyer and Laurie Bay Oyer 2

He that dwelleth in the secret place
The secret place of the most high
Shall abide under the shadow
Of the Almighty

I will say of the Lord
He is my refuge
And my fortress, my God
In Him will I trust
In Him will I trust

Surely He shall deliver thee
From the snare of the fowler
From the noisome pestilence
He shall cover thee with His feathers
And under His wings
Shall thou trust
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night
Nor for the arrow that flieth by day

Because thou hast made the Lord
My refuge the most High thy habitation
No evil—there shall no evil befall thee
Neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling
He shall give his angels charge o’er thee to keep
Keep thee in all thy ways
All thy ways.

He hath set his love upon me
Therefore I deliver him
I will set him on high
He hath known my name

He shall call
And I will answer Him
I will answer Him
He shall call
And I will be with him in trouble
I will deliver him
And honor Him.

From Where Love Stands

Words & Music: Desiree Goyette 8

From where Love stands
Everything’s taken care of
Everyone has their share of what they need
Held in Love’s hands
There’s not a thing to be afraid of
Loving away the shade of wondering
Where this life will lead

From where Love 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 Love stands

From where Love 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 separate 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
Everything’s crystal clear
From where Love stands.

The Lord’s Prayer

Lyrics: Matthew 6: 9-13
Music: Laurie Bay Oyer 4

Our Father
Which art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
In earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day
Our daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we forgive our debtors

And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
And the power
And the glory
Forever.
Amen.

Seek Ye First

Words & Music: Karen Lafferty 9

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things shall be added unto you
Alleluiah. Alleluiah.

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you
Alleluiah. Alleluiah.

Alleluiah. Alleluiah.
Alleluiah. Alleluiah.

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you
Alleluiah. Alleluiah.

Up to Thee

Words: A poem by Mary Baker Eddy 10
Music: Laurie Bay Oyer 4

Father-Mother God,
Loving me, –
Guard me when I sleep;
Guide my little feet
Up to Thee.

Father-Mother Good,
Lovingly Thee I seek
Patient, meek
In the way Thou hast
Be it slow or fast.
Up to Thee.
