Song 1. Celebrate Life

Verse 1

If you're ready to start

opening hearts, making life better

Let's paint the town with a rainbow of joy

to bring us together

Chorus

Celebrate life, talk about love

radiate hope , lift up the world

We can share the joy of knowing

we are filled to overflowing

Celebrate life, sing a love song

to your loved ones, let them sing along

Isn't it time to find we are all a shining light

when we celebrate life

Verse 2

If you're ready to play

out in the day, whatever the weather

Let the rain fall, there's joy in it all

when we do it together

Chorus

Bridge

When you're felling sad and low

call your friends and let them know

You'll be surprised, right before your eyes

they're so open- hearted they'll get the party started

Chorus

Song 3. I'm Here

Verse 1

Sometimes my mind just slips away

Tied up in the tangles of the day- to- day

But I choose to take this time

to stand up in love and claim that

Chorus

I'm here- this is where and when

I'm her- no other there and then

I'm here to show up, and fill my cup

in the flow and the glow of this moment

I'm here

Verse 2

We all have better things to do

A million choices between me and you

But I know where I belong

right beside you singing this song

Chorus

This is a holy time and place

a golden opportunity to greet the world and say:

Song 4. Inside

Verse 1

You go to the river to find the flow

You go to the ocean to find the deep below

You go to the mountains to find the heights

You go to the brightest star to find the sunlight

Chorus

But where do you go to find your breathing

where do you go to find your pride

where do you go to find believing

Inside

Verse 2

You go to your family to find your past

You go to your lover to find that sweet romance

You go to the music to find the dance

You go to the children to find your innocence

Chorus 2

But where do you go to find your feelings

where do you go to find your guide

where do you go to find your healing

Inside

Bridge

The best part of this whole affair

It's not out here, it's in there

Song 5. Let Spirit Flow

Here's to the pilgrims who take on the quest

to grieve for the bad times and live for the best

harvesting miracles that you can grow

when you let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

harvesting miracles that you can grow

when you let Spirit flow

And here's to the keepers of lighthouses too

who stand in the storm just to guide others through

still waters remain where the hurricanes blow

when you let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

still waters remain where the hurricanes blow

when you let Spirit flow

And here's to the fallen who've been here and gone

who leave us their legacy to carry on

this moment is ours let's embrace it and go

we can let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

this moment is ours let's embrace it and go

we can let Spirit flow

And here's to the promise that come from the Word

of Jesus and Ghandi and others we've heard

we'll find the peace that's beyond all we know

when we let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

Let Spirit flow

we'll find the peace that's beyond all we know

harvesting miracles that you can grow

still waters remain where the hurricanes blow

this moment is ours let's embrace it and know

we can let spirit flow

Song 6. Beach Cathedral

Verse1

Yeah bring the dog

but leave the shoes

Come to the sanctuary of my solitude

Where the ocean meets the land

an open stretch of sand

Where my heart gets healed and I readjust my attitude

It was made for me, there’s room for you

In the beach cathedral

 

Verse2

Set down the sun

open up the night

turn blue sky into the universe

See the moon shadows fly

listen to the tides

singing choruses like Sunday verse

so perfectly unrehearsed

In the beach cathedral

 

Chorus

It’s about letting go and opening

giving up command

letting worries tumble like

a billion grains of sand

washed into the bosom of the sea

the shining sea

Come and dance with me

and the shining sea

in the beach cathedral

Verse 3

Let your shoulders sag

And your brow un-crease

Take a deep breath and feel the sweet release

Get the breeze in your hair

And salt in your lungs

Now the transformation has begun

If you can‘t sit still, there’s room to run

In the beach cathedral

Chorus

Emm, Emm, Emmanuel

Come along, come with me

Come along, come along, come along

Emmanuel eternal living being of light

Illumine me in knowing you in all of my life

Without you within me I walk alone for all time

Emmanuel, come along, come with me

I will give you all mine

all mine, all mine, I will give you all mine

Illumine my life, Emmanuel

Song 9. Goodbye Old Friend

Goodbye old friend, we’ve come a long, long way.

You were there when I needed you.

You’ll always be a part of who I am

Now I release you, so goodbye old friend.

Faith and courage will see me through

The times when I’ll be missing you.

But on the other side of fear is a bigger, brighter world.

So goodbye old friend. It’s time to move beyond

This life I’ve known with you right here.

I lift you up and I lay you down

Now I release you, so goodbye old friend.

I’ll wrap you in fond memories

And save them for the rainy days.

And know that even in darkest times, I’ll never be alone.

I give you up and I lay you down

Now I release you so goodbye old friend.

Song 10. I Am

You are the earth

the moon, the sun

you are the life in everyone

you are in me and we are one

and with these words I take your hand

I am

What I feel about what I do

that isn't you

and what I say about what I see

that's up to me

and I affirm I have the choice

to live and learn to hear your voice
