I Love My Life   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

I love my life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.

I can hear the wind blow
Over the trees
I feel the waves wash over me.

I love my life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.

I can hear the angels
Sing sweetly to me
I feel my soul sing harmony.

I love my life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.
I love my life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.

I would give up galleons of gold
Just to have, have and to hold

This precious life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.

I can see candles circled ‘round
Held by those who sought and found

This precious life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.
I love my life, love you so dearly
Most precious life
Feel you so clearly.

Love is the night
Feel your lovin’ arms around me
Feel your lovin’ arms around me.
Feel your lovin’ arms around me.
Feel around me.

 

St. Francis and the Eagle   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

He walked out on a cobblestone street.
The wounded hem of his brown robe
Lay in cold water round his bare feet.
His heart was too troubled to sleep.
He looked up at the clear black sky
Punched with cold bright stars
And asked them why
There was pain in his heart
And suffering on, suffering on,
Suffering on the earth.
He walked up to the top of the hill
Looked out over the rooftops,
Steeples and plain
Wrapped his robe round
To keep out the chill
And search inside, search inside,
Search inside the pain.
Then appeared an eagle
With the morning light
Called to him to follow
Across the painted sky,
Across the painted sky.
He said I am imprisoned here
In earthbound flesh and bone.
I have no wings to follow you
Must remain here here, remain here,
Remain here alone.
From his heart arose a voice
Speaking gently and true
You have come to earth by choice
How you live is up to you,
How you live is up to you.
I have one request of you
That you live this life
Tend my garden lovingly
“Till all have eyes to see it,
“Till all have eyes to see.
He walked out on a cobblestone street.

 

The Prayer of St. Francis   © melody by Sing Kaur

Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
Where there is hatred let me so love.
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
And where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, sadness joy.
Oh Divine Master grant that I may not
So much seek to be consoled as to console.
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love.
For it’s in giving that we receive
And it’s in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it’s in dying that we are born into eternal light.
Oh, Lord make me an instrument, make me an instrument
Of thy peace, of thy peace.

What Wondrous Love is This   trad.

What wondrous love is this
Oh my soul, oh my soul
What wondrous love is this
Oh my soul.

What wondrous love is this
That caused the Lord of Bliss
To send this perfect peace to my soul
To my soul
To send this perfect peace to my soul.

One Heart   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.

One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.

And all of the love we share
Will not be in vain.
We’ll sing and we’ll dance
In love’s sweet song
And sing it all again.

One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.
One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.

And all of the love we share
Will not be in vain.
We’ll sing and we’ll dance
In love’s sweet song
And sing it all again.

After all is said and done
You are still the only one
My heartstrings love to sing.
Loved you in the early morn
Since the day that I was born
You woke me from my sleeping.

And all of the love we share
Will not be in vain.
We’ll sing and we’ll dance
In love’s sweet song
And sing it all again.

One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.
One heart, one kiss, one love, one bliss.

And all of the love we share
Will not be in vain.
We’ll sing and we’ll dance
In love’s sweet song
And sing it all again.
And sing it all again.
And sing it all again.

Let There Be Peace   © Words and Music by  Sister Miriam Therese Winter - Medical Mission Sisters (used by permission)

Let there be peace in your dwelling
Let there be peace this day.
Peace is the gift that I offer
That no one can take away.

So let their wars and their terrors resound
You my child are on certain ground
Don’t let your heart be afraid
Don’t let your heart be afraid.

Let there be peace in your dwelling
Let there be peace this day.
Peace is the gift that I offer
That no one can take away.

I will not leave you an orphan alone
You are the child I claim as my own.
You hold the key to my heart
You hold the key to my heart

Let there be peace in your dwelling
Let there be peace this day.
Peace is the gift that I offer
That no one can take away.

Peace to the towns and cities of earth
Peace to the land that I loved into birth.
So that your joy may be full
So that your joy may be full.

Let there be peace in your dwelling
Let there be peace this day.
Peace is the gift that I offer
That no one can take away.
No one can take away.

Let there be peace in your dwelling

 

Illusion Illumination   © words and music by Buddy Comfort

Sweet beloved peace to find.

Elusive yet here all the time.
And her heart says to mine.
Love me as we laugh,
The freely winding path,
Through the chambers of the night,
To the joyous pulsing light,
To the joyous pulsing light.

A dolphin silently glides.
A song to my spirit replies.
And her love sings to mine
Be yourself or die
Live your life and know why.
As on the wheel you spin
Eternity welcomes you in.
As on the wheel you spin.

An eagle circling soars.
The ocean of life below roars,
And her soul cries to mine.
Know the reason why,
On earth you live and die,
And keep your spirit free,
Let your heart rely on me.
Let your heart rely on me.

Through the veil we come.
After we’re born we run,
Where desires will.
A glimpse of life renews,
Through illusion’s clouded views,
Our Spirit’s clearer sight,
Of the all-surrounding light,
Of the all-surrounding light.

 

We'll All Go Together   ©  Words and music by Buddy Comfort

Machine made monsters ramblin’ around

Belchin’ smoke and fire.
All the children gone underground
To flee the funeral pyre
The greed, the need, the desire.

We’ll all go together
On the road toward the sun.
We’ll all grow together in the love within,
the love within, the love within each one.

First people on American soil
Lived in harmony,
On the land they would not spoil
Nature’s mystery
As brothers, sisters, as free.

We’ll all go together
On the road toward the sun.
We’ll all grow together in the love within,
the love within, the love within each one.

From Findhorn to the Cosmic Bay
The web of ether flows
Light pours through old cracking ways
As awareness grows
Finds, reminds those who know.

We’ll all go togethe
On the road toward the sun.
We’ll all grow together in the love within,
the love within, the love within each one.

We’ll all go together on the road toward the sun.
We’ll all grow together in the love within,
the love within, the love within each one.

 

The Thorn Seeks Not To Pierce   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

The thorn seeks not to pierce.

The thorn seeks not to pierce
As the arrow from the drawn bow
The thorn seeks not to pierce
As the arrow from the drawn bow flies.

The rose, the rose.
The rose a lotus grows.
With sweet perfume,
Sweet perfume, and healing hue.
A gift for all, a gift for all she grows.

The thorn seeks not to pierce.
But meets the hand
Meets the hand that passes low
To take the rose
To pluck the rose
To have the rose for its own.

The thorn seeks not to pierce.

 

Halleluiah War is Over   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

All the people were singin’

To every girl and boy.

From good news war was done.

Feeling freedom completely.
As dark clouds lifted from the world.

All the bells were bringin’
Joy to every girl and boy.

 

I've 'Gotta Take Care of Myself   © Words and music by Buddy Comfort

Some folks say if you love yourself

It’s the selfish thing to do.
If you don’t care about no one else
Then what they’re sayin’s true.

Some folks say if you love yourself
It’s the natural thing to do
Respect, forgive, and know yourself
Then what they’re sayin’s true.

‘Gotta take care of myself
If I don’t nobody else will
Simply to love and honor my own life
‘Gotta take care of myself.

Sometimes you can give too much,
Leave yourself behind,
Find yourself with nothing left,
And no one there to find.

Know when to say no to some
Know when to say yes.
Know when to give your all
And when to take your rest.

‘Gotta take care of myself
If I don’t nobody else will
Simply to love and honor my own life
‘Gotta take care of myself.

Love your neighbor as yourself
Follow the Golden Rule
Walk a mile in your neighbor’s shoes
Before you call him a fool.

‘Gotta take care of myself
If I don’t nobody else will
Simply to love and honor my own life
‘Gotta take care of .
‘Gotta take care of
‘Gotta take care of myself.

 

FROM: MYTHICAL BEAUTY

Galadriel  © words and music by Buddy Comfort

Galadriel glides on moon wings 

Across the light. 

She lifts her eyes to the stars 

And weeps with the night. 

The wind carries her 

Heart kindled deeply on. 

Galadriel runs with the deer 

In the spring rain. 

To the singing waters down by the willow 

Freely insane. 

The forest holds her 

Warm unto her breast. 

Refrain 

Galadriel tumbles out trembling 

To touch the sun. 

From the rising waters of the ocean 

Her soul has sung. 

The waves carry her 

Heart kindled freely on. 

Galadriel sends you elation 

Through her eyes. 

Born of joy from the place 

Where sorrow lies. 

Her wings unfold 

In crystals of delight.

 

If I Were a Bird     © Words and music by Buddy Comfort 

If I were a Bird 

I’d fly in your window 

Sit on your shoulder 

And sing a kind word. 

If I were a song 

I’d whisper your name love 

On lute strings of golden 

And flute melody. 

Ooooo….. 

If I were a cloud 

I’d lift up your eyes to 

A sky all of rainbows 

And sunlight that sings. 

If I were a tree 

I’d grow in your garden 

Gather you mushrooms 

And always be spring. 

Ooooo….. 

If I were the time 

I’d sprinkle soft shadows 

Across life’s deep canyons 

And lift up your mind. 

If I were not me 

My spirit could dwell in 

A dove or a dolphin 

And truly know thee.
