Inspiration

It’s been an inspired week. I don’t write songs all that often, but here are the lyrics of two, just from the last few days; it’s a shame I can’t share the music with you too!

Hallelujah No. 2

I am crying out
But not with fear
And not with pain
You have filled this heart
With a joy
It can barely contain

You are wonderful
Your works are marvellous

So I sing hallelujah
Though it’s less than you deserve
Hallelujah
So lately on my lips

I am crying out
But not with fear
And not with pain
You have filled this heart
With a joy
It can barely contain

Wanna sing
Wanna praise you

So I sing hallelujah
Though it’s less than you deserve
Hallelujah
So lately on my lips

Meditation on variations of C

Meditating here on the texture of this major chord
And how the sweetness of life brings me back
To a dash of sorrow

I will still my heart, sit in the wonder of your spirit
Sunshower of peace and falling
Shadow of quiet

And all that remains for us to do
With our long days and our short years
Is to seek your face, know your name
Sing your praise, love your children
And to dream of heaven

Oh what magic is this?
Stepping out of time and plunging
Into a moment (a moment with you)

But the mystery is this –
Stepping down from eternity and
Emerging mortal

And all that remains for us to do
With our long days and our short years
Is to seek your face, know your name
Sing your praise, love your children
And to dream of heaven

This is joy that’s true, more than happiness that’s fleeting
This is joy with roots, that’s watered and sustains through any
And everything

It’s a lifetime yet it’s an instant, learned yet somehow always known
I’m not sure how I am, but if I’m not
Then I’m with you
