Shine Your Way

by Owl City & Yuna

“Shine Your Way”
(from “The Croods” soundtrack)

Just before the dawn,
When the light’s still gone,
Shine, shine your way,
And you may not know, where to go,
Shine, shine your way

Open road but it’s still dark,
Build a fire from a spark,
And shine, shine your way,
Feed the feeling in your heart,
Don’t conceal it then you’ll start,
To find, find your way

No one can stop, what has begun,
You must believe when I say

All of your tears will dry faster in the sun,
Starting today,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine your way

There’s an open sky,
And a reason why,
You shine, shine your way,
There’s so much to learn,
And now it’s your turn,
To shine, shine your way

There’s a feeling deep inside,
You can let it be your guide,
To find, find your way,
And there’s no time for us to waste,
Got to take a leap of faith,
And fly, fly away

Don’t have to walk,
Now you can run,
Nothing can get in your way

All of your tears will dry faster in the sun,
Starting today,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine your way

Morning is breaking,
Darkness is fading,
We found a way to the light,
It’s such a beautiful sight

Any time, anywhere,
Turn around and I’ll be there,
To shine, shine your way

Like a star burning bright,
Lighting up the darkest night,
I’ll shine, shine your way

Now I can see,
You are the one,
Sent here to show me the way

All of our tears will dry faster in the sun,
Starting today,
Shine, shine, shine,
We’re on our way,
Shine, shine, shine,
That’s what we say,
Shine, shine, shine,
Shine your way

There’s a reason why
You shine, shine your way

All of our tears will dry faster in the sun
Shine your way

I am Light

by India Arie
I am light, I am light [x4]

I am not the things my family did
I am not the voices in my head
I am not the pieces of the brokenness inside

I am light, I am light [x4]

I’m not the mistakes that I have made or any of the things that caused me pain
I am not the pieces of the dream I left behind

I am light, I am light [x4]

I am not the color of my eyes
I am not the skin on the outside
I am not my age, I am not my race, my soul inside is all light

All light, all light [x2]
I am light, I am light [x2]

I am divinity defined
I am the God on the inside
I am a star, a piece of it all
I am light

Also on the album “The Quickening

Chorus:
Keeper of the sacred flame
from within the darkness came
new spring maid from winter’s crone
the brightest queen of morning song

Brigid with your white wand sing
move us to the cusp of spring
see the ravens come on wing
’tis the time of quickening

Chorus

Sweet serpent rises from the earth
awaken fallen seeds to life
moving from the bright ones hand
soon fire burns within the land

Chorus

The smith that forges iron craft
light bringer on the spiral path
sage and healer guide the plough
drink from the white, red eared cow

Chorus

From the East the rising sun
keeps alive the sacred flame
the eternal fire for all the see
the giver of the prophecy ”

Come to the Dance

Song: Come To The Dance
Artist: Emerald Rose
Album: Archive Of Ages To Come

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
We step in a circle
Dance to the earth
And your soul attunes

Come with us, sing for
The love of the Mother
Sing with the voice
Of the rising moon

Come to the dance
We do for the old ones
Dance into space
And time apart

Send up the call to
Those who will hear it
Arise all you
Of the Pagan heart

Away we’ll go
To the rhythm of
The pounding night

So we flow
From darkness
Into light

We may dream
From awakening
Into trance

So it seems
As we all
Come to the dance

Come to the dance
Come to the dance
Come to the dance

Under a Beltane sun

by Damh the Bard

My shackled feet they long to be free from,
This modern Rome.
The ancient moors and the granite shores they are,
Calling me home.

(Chorus)

Sometimes this city is too much to bear,
I hear a calling in my soul,
The Mother’s waterways will take me,
Where life has begun,
Under a Beltane Sun.

Cuckoo calls and the seed falls as the,
Children play.
Skylark sings to the swift on the wing in the,
Bright clear day.

Salmon swims and the diamond stream sings with,
The blackbird’s song.
Voice in the breeze well it whispers please won’t you,
Sing along.

Beltane Fires

Song: Beltane Fires
Artist: Gaia Consort
Album: Secret Voices

A health to the mothers of the Merry Begotten
A health to the maiden with the firey eyes
A health to the crone that smiles beside us
On the other side of a Beltane Fire

A health to the sweet rain gently falling
Down upon the Earth so fair
A health to the wind that Gails around us
And feeds the passion of a Beltane Fire

A health to the lovley green-eyed Susan
She whose heart is my desire
And after all the May Pole’s rising
Will you leap with me now o’er a Beltane Fire?

Alternate verse
A health to the acts of love and pleasure
A health to the way the May poles rise
A health to those who bear no children
So those who do come along survive!

Eo! The Maiden and the horned one
Eo! The call to spill the seed
Eo! The stirring of the Cauldron
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The Green Man ever present
Eo! The Raven in the wood
Eo! The kisses ripe for tasting
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The rising of the sleepers
Eo! To hear the Pipe at dawn
Eo! The quickening is here
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The sweet rain gently falling
Eo! The seed deep in the Earth
Eo! I hear my lovers calling
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The lusty summer coming
Eo! The green leaf in the bud
Eo! The wild sap is running
Eo Evohe!

Eo! The musky Piper playing
Eo! The One Who Calls the Dance
Eo! The howling earth is saying
Eo Evohe!

A Plea to the Lord

by Rosemary Ammar

Found at http://www.inspirationpeak.com/cgi-bin/poetry.cgi?record=190

I woke up on Monday and looked up at the sky
With a pain in my heart and tears in my eyes
I said “Lord, please help me, I don’t know what to do.
I lost my job, I need some help, I have no one but you.”

The Lord looked down upon me with sadness in his eyes.
“The world is in a sorry state and I apologize.
For all the pain it’s caused you, there’s just one thing I’ll say:
“It’s okay to cry my child, but don’t forget to pray.”

I woke up on Tuesday and looked up at the sky
With a pain in my heart and tears in my eyes
I said “Lord please help me, I don’t know what to do.
The food is scarce, the kids are sick, I have no one but you.

The week dragged by thru Saturday and things seemed worse each day.
I remembered what the Lord said: “It’s okay to cry, but pray”
So I cried and prayed, I cried and prayed, with no relief in sight.
And I went to bed exhausted but couldn’t sleep that night.

I woke up on Sunday and looked up at the sky
With pain in my heart and tears in my eyes
I said “Lord I’ve had enough and I’m about to break
I think I might just end it all, for everybody’s sake.”

“I’ve not deserted you my child, I’ve counted every tear
Your burdens, although heavy, are not more than you can bear
Soon the sun will warm your face and make you smile again
So rest a little easier and trust in me till then.”

Then the Lord reached down and held me in his arms
With a gentle hand he wiped my tears and spoke these words so calm
“My child I love you dearly and have heard you pray your best
But there is no crying on Sunday, it is the day of rest.

I’ve heard you cry, I’ve heard you pray and I will not desert you
Your faith in Me will get you through these tragedies that hurt you.
So rest today and worry not and leave the rest to me
If you do that, I can promise you, the best is yet to be.”
