~ Lyrics ~
1. Oh Mistress Mine (words by William Shakespeare, from Twelfth Night)
O mistress mine! Where are you roaming? Oh! stay and hear; your true love’s coming, That can sing both high and low. Trip no further, pretty sweeting; Journeys end in lovers meeting, Ev’ry wise man’s son doth know, Ev’ry wise man’s son doth know. What is love? ’tis not hereafter; Present mirth hath present laughter; What’s to come is still unsure: In delay there lies no plenty; Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty, Youth’s a stuff will not endure. Youth’s a stuff will not endure.
2. Fairies' Lullaby (words by William Shakespeare, from A Midsummer Night's Dream)
You spotted snakes with double tongue, Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen; Newts and blindworms, do no wrong, Come not near our fairy queen. Philomel, with melody, Sing in our sweet lullaby; Lulla lulla lullaby, Lulla lulla lullaby. Never harm, nor spell nor charm, Come our lovely lady nigh; So, good night, good night, So good night, with lullaby. Weaving spiders come not here; Hence, you long-legged spinner, hence! Beetles black, approach not near; Worm nor snail, do no offense. Philomel, with melody, Sing in our sweet lullaby; Lulla lulla lullaby, Lulla lulla lullaby. Never harm, nor spell nor charm, Come our lovely lady nigh; So, good night, good night, So good night, with lullaby.3. Come Away, Death (words by William Shakespeare, from Twelfth Night)
Come away, come away, death,
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath,
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My shroud of white, stuck all with yew,
Oh! prepare it.
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it.
Not a flower, not a flower sweet,
On my black coffin let there be strown;
Not a friend, not a friend greet
My poor corpse where my bones shall be thrown.
A thousand thousand sighs to save,
Lay me Oh! Where
Sad true lover never find my grave,
To weep there.
4. Dearest, When I Think of Thee
1. Dearest, When I think of thee; Heaven opens, and I see Shafts of light upon the earth: All, then, seems of noble birth. Shafts of light upon the earth: All, then, seems of noble birth. 2. Kindness, then, appears divine; Human error, then, benign: Goodness rules the universe; Men a higher love rehearse. Goodness rules the universe; Men a higher love rehearse. 3. Thought of you my peace assure, Calm my heart and make it pure. Even so, your actions screen All in live that's base or mean. Even so, your actions screen All in live that's base or mean.
5. Two Souls
Two souls were conceived,
Ere stars in the sky
Ere planets were born,
Ere hearts could know scorn.
Together they danced in God’s sight.
Up pathways radiance
Before them, bright starsv
Deep seas and vast plains,
Men’s joys, and men’s pains--
All these, in perfection They knew.
Their love called them down from
To live here on earth in
They seemed mortal, now,
Yet rememb’ring their vow,
They ever maintained their Soul ties
6. Cherish These
Is there anywhere on earth,
Perfect freedom, sorrow’s dearth,
Selfless friendship, blameless birth?
Cherish these, naught else has worth.
7. Life Is Beautiful
Life is beautiful, life is gay,
When I give myself away;
When I live to please Thee, Lord,
Dancing in Thy ray.
Let me see Thee everywhere
Hear Thy melodies in the air.
Let me feel Thy strength in me.
Give me joy to share.
8. Life Is a Dream
Life is a dream. Time, like a stream, Carries our burdens away. Never despair: Joy’s ev’rywhere; Love can befriend you today. Free from all care, Like birds on the air, Soar above griefs and worries: Seek Joy and be gay! Often on earth Things of great worth Worldly ambitions defy. Sometimes a friend Helps us ascend Up from life’s cares to the sky. Love is a star: Though shining afar, It can guide us and help us Toward light to draw nigh.
9. Divine Friendship
In the blend of your life's path with mine
I have found
Love is crowned with freedom's vine.
Sorrows all disappear
When friendship's gaze is clear.
May our sight, shunning night,
Toward God incline.
10. Make Us Channels of Thy Peace
Lord most high our heav’nly father,
All our lives we dedicate to Thee:
All our labors, all our joys and woes,
All our pleasure, all our melody.
Make us each a channel of Thy peace:
When in darkness, guide us from above;
Where there’s sorrow may we sow Thy joy;
Where there’s hatred may we share Thy love.
Long I’ve called You, my Lord,
Long I’ve called You.
Many years I have longed for Your sight;
Bathed the darkness with tears of devotion,
Offered candles in prayer to Your light.
How much longer, Friend,
Must I cry Your name?
I am Yours, ever Yours.
Will You come?
Measured steps going, candlelight glowing;
Monks in rows sighing, flick'ring lights dying.
Echoes down the years dimly tell of their tears:
Gone, their chants, gone, pray'rs: leaving homes filled with cares.
When man's hearts turn from light, what is left, but night?
When Thy truth they profane, what is left, but pain?
13. Sleep Is Calling
Sleep is calling, fly up high,
Be a cloud moving in the sky!
Sail above the winding rivers.
Ask the stars, “What am I?”
Lullaby, Lullaby, Lullaby.
Sleep is calling, soar in light.
Be a star shining through the night.
Tell all creatures that you love them.
Tell the shadows: “Be bright!”
Lullaby, Lullaby, Lullaby.
14. Wartime Lullaby
Lullaby, my sweet baby, lullay, lullay, Angel voices sing peace on the wind, And though men cry with sorrows God’s silence within Speaks of realms that no tears ever stained. Beauty men say is a dream never known, Shadow to them is a light, But their gloom is a cry of a lost innocence, Sleep sweetly with God through the night. Lullaby, my sweet baby, lullay, lullay, Mountain flow’rs are not frightened to bloom, And though men spread destruction Life rises again With a smile for the griefs of the tomb. Mercy still sings, though men’s leaders cry hate, Peace is still loved, though they fight, Bombs have never extinguished the candle of hope, Sleep sweetly with God through the night.
