The Gift of Presence

The gift of presence 

Is the song of songs

That blossoms like the dawn

In our hearts

We sing with the earth

In gratitude

Interbeing in the pure land

Soon We’ll Be Found

Performed by Sia

Lyrics:
Come along it is the break of day
Surely now, you’ll have some things to say
It’s not the time for telling tales on me

So come along, it wont be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Well it’s been rough but we’ll be just fine
Work it out yeah we’ll survive
You mustn’t let a few bad times dictate

So come along, it wont be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Veni, veni Emmanuel!

(Latin version)

Veni, veni, Emanuel:
Captivum solve Israel,
Qui gemit in exilio,
Privatus Dei Filio

Gaude! Gaude! Emanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

Veni veni, O Oriens;
Solare nos adveniens;
Noctis depelle nebulas,
Dirasque noctis tenebras.
Gaude! Gaude! Emanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

Veni, Clavis Davidica;
Regna reclude celica;
Fac iter tutum superum,
Et claude vias inferum.

Gaude! Gaude! Emanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

Veni, veni, Adonai,
Qui populo in Sina
Legem dedisiti vertice
In maiestate glorie.

Gaude! Gaude! Emanuel
Nascetur pro te, Israel.

(English translation)

1. O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Refrain:

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

2. O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan’s tyranny;
From depths of hell Thy people save,
And give them victory o’er the grave. Refrain

3. O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight! Refrain

4. O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery. Refrain

5. O come, O come, Thou Lord of Might,
Who to Thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud, and majesty, and awe. Refrain

The Power Inside of Me

Seek and you shall find what you may already have
Sometimes it’s your own shadow standing in your path
I have spent my life with a vision of myself,
But I may have been somebody, somebody else.
I feel a change in the tide
As I hold my heart open wide.

CHORUS:
Never,
Knew what I could be
I never felt the power inside of me
Now I stand in all the wonder
That the mirror couldn’t see.
I have the power inside of me, yeah.
I have the power inside of me.

Every time I held a rose, I only felt the thorns.
I feel like todays the day I finally was born.
Now that I see me through these eyes,
I can do more than fantasize.

~Richard Marx~

Don’t You Worry Child

Lyric translation :

(Traditional Hindi Prayer)
Twamev mata ca pita, badhu, sakha, vidya, dravidam
Sarvo mum deva deva

[You are truly my mother and my father, my friend, my kin, my knowledge, and
my wealth.You are my everything, my God of Gods]

Khushnuma

[Happiness without worry]

Kuch saalon pehle ki baatein, Mujhko yaad aayi

[There was a time years ago]

Jisme mainey kuch galtiya ki thi

[When I first met adversity]

Aur phir jaane kyo, Dil ye rota tha

[My heart cried out in sorrow]

Kyonki nadaani karnaa aasaan tha

[When in my innocence I stumbled]

Mere dil ki hai dua, Khush raho sadaa

[In my heart I pray for happiness]

Na bhoolana… Khushnuma

[Always remember…happiness without worry]

Sun le zaraa… Dil ki dua

[Hear me … the prayer in my heart]

Sun le zaraa

[Hear my heart]
