  • Amazing Grace
    Adapted by Unity

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a soul like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.

    'Twas grace that taught my heart to sing,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed!

    Through many dangers, toils, and snares
    I have already come;
    'Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
    And grace will lead me home.

    When we've been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun
    We've no less days to sing God's praise
    Than when we first begun.

    Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
    That saved a soul like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.


  • Spirit of God

    Spirit of God, in the clear running water,
    Blowing to greatness the trees on the hill.
    Spirit of God, in the finger of morning,
    Fill the earth, bring it to birth,
    And blow, where you will.
    Blow, blow, blow till I be
    But breath of the Spirit, blowing in me.

    I saw the scar of a year that lay dying,
    Heard the lament of a lone whippoorwill.
    Spirit of God, see that cloud crying,
    Fill the earth, bring it to birth,
    And blow, where you will.
    Blow, blow, blow till I be
    But breath of the Spirit, blowing in me.

    Down in the meadow the willows are moaning,
    Sheep in the pasture-land cannot lies still.
    Spirit of God, creation is groaning,
    Fill the earth, bring it to birth,
    And blow, where you will.
    Blow, blow, blow till I be
    But breath of the Spirit, blowing in me.

    Spirit of God, every man's heart is lonely,
    Watching and waiting and hungry untill,
    Spirit of God, man longs that you only,
    Fill the earth, bring it to birth,
    And blow, where you will.
    Blow, blow, blow till I be
    But breath of the Spirit, blowing in me.


  • Morning Has Broken

    Morning has broken like the first morning.
    Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
    Praise for the singing, Praise for the morning,
    Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.

    Sweet the rains new fall, sunlit from heaven,
    Like the first dew fall on the first grass.
    Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
    Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

    Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning,
    Born of the One Light Eden saw play.
    Praise with elation, Praise every morning,
    God's recreation of the new day.


  • Joy is Like the Rain

    I saw raindrops on my window
    Joy is like the rain
    Laughter runs across my pain
    Slips away and comes again
    Joy is like the rain.

    I saw clouds upon a mountain
    Joy is like the cloud
    Sometimes silver sometimes grey
    Always sun not far away
    Joy is like the cloud.

    I saw Christ through storm and thunder
    Joy is tried by storm
    Christ asleep within my boat
    Tossed by waves yet still afloat
    Joy is tried by storm.

    I saw raindrops on the river
    Joy is like the rain
    Bit by bit the river grows
    Till all at once it overflows
    Joy is like the rain
    Joy is like the rain.


  • The Sparkle Song

    I call you from the sparkle of the sun upon the sea;
    I call you from the smallest grain of sand.
    I call you from the lighted candle burning through the night,
    To come into my heart and take my hand.

    I call you from beyond the summer sky of deepest blue,
    I call you from beneath the sea so green,
    From the mountain peaks so far away, come down into my life;
    And show me what your miracles do mean.

    From the ebb and flow of water to the rise and set of sun,
    And the seasons as they change from year to year,
    The earth and plants and animals obey the sacred laws,
    Help me learn to live and love without a fear.

    In the calm and quiet of country, or the chaos of the town,
    The early morning or the darkest depths of night,
    Enable me to stand still no matter where I am,
    And when I close my eyes to see the light.

    The three in one and one in three that can't be torn apart,
    An everlasting circle never seen before--
    The holy serpent's loving and the wisdom of the heart,
    And the glory as the three burst into four.


  • The Rainbow Song

    Father, make me a rainbow, to bridge old and new;
    Father, make me a gateway for many to come through.
    Father, You are the sunlight in a very dark land;
    Father, make me a prism held in your hand.

    Father, You are the music, make me a lyre.
    I am the kindling, Father, make me a fire.
    Our voices blend now, into one loving song;
    The dream grows true now, beautiful-strong.


  • The Belvedere Song

    I know a place where the sun shines like gold,
    Where the cherries bloom forth in the snow,
    And down underneath is the loveliest place,
    Where the four leaf clovers grow.

    One leaf is for faith, and one is for hope,
    And one is for love you know,
    And God put another one on just for you,
    If you search you find where they grow.

    But you must have faith and you must have hope,
    You must love and be strong and so,
    If you work, if you wait, you will find the place
    Where the four leaf clovers grow.


  • Song of the Garden

    The Lord into His garden comes;
    The spices yield a rich perfume;
    The lilies grow and thrive, the lilies grow and thrive.
    Refreshing showers of grace divine,
    From the Father flow to every vine,
    And make the dead revive, and make the dead revive.

    Oh that this dry and barren ground
    In springs of water may abound;
    A fruitful soil become, a fruitful soil become.
    The desert blossoms as the rose,
    When the Saviour conquers all his foes,
    And makes His people one, and makes His people one.

    Come brethren you that love the Lord,
    And taste the sweetness of His word;
    In Father's ways go on, in Father's ways go on,
    Our trouble and our trials here,
    Will only make us richer there,
    When we arrive at home, when we arrive at home.


  • I Come To The Garden Alone

    I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses;
    And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
    The Son of God discloses.

    Refrain:
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own,
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.

    He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
    Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
    And the melody that He gave to me,
    Within my heart is ringing.

    (Refrain)

    I'd stay in the garden with Him,
    Though the night around me be falling,
    But He bids me go; through the voice of woe,
    His voice to me is calling.

    (Refrain.)


  • Find Your Dream
    by Jon Schuhart

    Find your dream before you leave this world, my friend.
    Find your dream; don't worry 'bout its end.
    In your dream, you'll find the life that you have never known;
    And in your dream, you won't be all alone.

    Find your hope; don't let your happy heart be sad.
    Find your hope, and life won't be so bad.
    In your hope, you'll find the joy that life and purpose bring;
    And from your hope, your happy spirit sings.

    We have a dream for you--bright, shining dream for you!
    Take this dream into your heart; and this dream won't fall apart.
    we have hope for you--great, wonderful hope for you!
    Fill your life with love of God, and you'll find your dream.


  • Um Maya
    (I Want To Live By The River)

    Um maya nu naya, gang byun sal ja,
    Du re nun ban cha gi nun, kum mo re bit.
    Tui moon ba ge nun gal lipe no-ore
    Um maya nu naya gang byun sal ja.

    I want to live by the river with my family
    The river shines like the golden sand in the fields;
    It glistens to the song of swirling autumn leaves.
    I want to live by the riverside.


  • Arirang

    Arirang arirang arario
    We are crossing over the crest of the hill
    Let us sing together with a new heart
    We will see the dawn of the great new day!

    Arirang arirang arario
    Arirang ko-ge-ro no-mo-gan-da.
    Se ha-nul se-dang ir uo jon ne
    Se-no-re pu ru myo whadong ha-se!

    Arirang arirang arario
    Arirang ko ge ro no-mo-gan-da.
    Na-rul po-ri-go ka si nun-ni-mun
    Shim ni do mot-ka-so
    Pal pyong nan-da.


  • Kumbaya

    Kumbaya, my Lord--kumbaya
    Kumbaya, my Lord--kumbaya
    Kumbaya, my Lord--kumbaya
    Oh, Lord, Kumbaya.

    Someone's singing, Lord--kumbaya
    Someone's singing, Lord--kumbaya
    Someone's singing, Lord--kumbaya
    Oh, Lord, Kumbaya.

    Someone's crying, Lord--kumbaya

    Someone's crying, Lord--kumbaya
    Oh, Lord, Kumbaya.

    Someone's laughing, Lord--kumbaya
    Someone's laughing, Lord--kumbaya
    Someone's laughing, Lord--kumbaya
    Oh, Lord, Kumbaya.

    Someone's praying, Lord--kumbaya

    Oh, Lord, Kumbaya.


  • Just Like You Promised
    By Patty Kennedy

    Just like You promised, you've come.
    Just like You told us, you're here.
    And my desire is that You know,
    I love You, I worship You,
    I welcome You here.


  • Peace, I Ask of Thee, O River

    Peace, I ask of thee, O river,
    Peace, peace, peace.
    When I learn to live serenely,
    Cares will cease.

    From the hills I gather courage
    Vision of the day to be;
    Strength to lead and faith to follow,
    All are given unto me.

    Peace, I ask of thee, O river,
    Peace, peace, peace.


  • The Perfect Child
    by Chris Davies

    No more will I down primrose paths wander, as in days gone by;
    But the track of the white trefoil I will follow, till the day I die.
    Though the serpent tries to effect disguise,
    At my three questions he'll quiver and cower,
    As he's reminded once again that he's very near the end,
    When he'll be blinded by the morning's dawning hour.
    As the pool 'round the tree becomes a lake of the clearest, deepest blue,
    The branches will change from brown to green,
    And the bark will appear as new;
    Then the murmuring wind will rise and sing,
    And the stars will dance upon the water;
    And a mighty shout will be heard all about
    From God's true sons and daughters.
    And the black, bloated raven will croak no more,
    No more will he darken the sky.
    He will beat his wings but the bones will be snapped,
    And no more he'll be able to fly.
    Then the song of the birds will again be heard,
    But their notes will be different than before;
    For now sorrow or sadness will spoil their tune,
    And they'll sing forever more.
    The pipes will play on that glorious day, weaving their pattern of silk
    Their gentle notes will stroke the air, and the skies will rain with milk
    The Possessor will embrace the breath of life
    And the arrogant be made so meek and mild.
    And everything will they freely bring to the feet of the perfect child.


  • Mountain Trail

    Follow me up the trail;
    Follow me, climbing high.
    Come with me, far above
    Where the mountain eagles fly.
    We will find journey's end
    Where the long trail meets the sky.
    There far above us, in brightness beaming
    The snow-capped mountain peak is gleaming.
    Through woods and fields of mountain flowers
    We climb with hearts so glad and gay;
    Across the windswept rocky towers
    Forever higher leads our way.
    There far below us, with joy beholding
    We see the whole wide world unfolding.
    The fields and meadows flower greenly
    Beneath the blue and endless sky.
    The golden sunshine smiles serenely
    Above the mountain peaks on high.


  • All Things Bright And Beautiful

    All things bright and beautiful,
    All creatures great and small,
    All things wise and wonderful,
    The Lord God made them all.

    Each little flower that opens,
    Each little bird that sings,
    He made their glowing colors,
    He made their tiny wings.

    The cold wind in the winter,
    The pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruits in the garden,
    He made them every one

    The tall trees in the greenwood,
    The meadows where we play,
    The rushes by the water we gather every day.
    He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell
    How great God almighty,
    Who has made all things well.


  • Love's Gonna Live Here

    Oh the sun's gonna shine in my life once more,
    Love's gonna live here again
    things are gonna be the way they were before
    Love's gonna live here again.

    Refrain: Love's gonna live here, Love's gonna live here
    Love's gonna live here again
    No more loneliness, only happiness
    Love's gonna live here again.

    I hear bells a ringin, I hear birds are singin
    Love's gonna live here again
    I hear bees a hummin, and I know the days are comin
    Love's gonna live here agian.
    (Refrain.)


  • Pass It On

    It only takes a spark to set a fire going
    And soon all those around can warm up to its glowing.
    That's how it is with God's love, once you experience it,
    You spread His love to everyone, you want to pass it on.

    What a wondrous time is spring when all the trees are budding.
    The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming.
    That's how it is with God's love, once you experience it,
    You want to sing, it's fresh like spring, you want to pass it on.

    I wish for you, my friend, this happiness that I've found.
    You can depend on Him, it matters not where you're bound.
    I'll shout it from the mountain-tops, I want my world to know,
    The Lord of love has come to me, I want to pass it on.


  • The Gift to be Simple
    Traditional Shaker Song

    'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed.
    to turn, turn will be our delight,
    Till by turning, turning we come round right.


  • Sunshine or Storm
    Traditional Shaker Song

    Life is mostly what we make it
    Filled with sunshine or with storm
    Just whichever way we take it
    Sad or cheering, cold or warm.

    Come what may, we need not borrow,
    Grief or trials great or small
    Troubles of the brewing morrow
    Which may never come at all.


  • Men of the Fields

    Life means our work,
    Home means our children,
    Love means each other every day.
    Hope for the best, pray for the rest,
    All over the earth we sing.

    Men of the fields, men of the valleys,
    Men of the seasons and the soil.
    Strong hearts and hands, molding the lands,
    All over the earth they toil.

    Down in the fields, nine in the morning,
    Day's work is three hours done.
    Care for the corn, care for the cows,
    Care for the land we need.

    God moves the sun, noon brings the weary man,
    Home to his table and his grace.
    Down on our knees, thankful that these
    Days are our very own.

    Life means our work,
    Home means our children,
    Love means each other every day.
    Hope for the best, pray for the rest,
    All over the earth we sing.


  • Let There Be Peace on Earth

    Let there be peace on earth
    And let it begin with me
    Let there be peace on earth
    The peace that was meant to be.

    With God as our Father
    Brothers all are we
    Let me walk with my brother
    In perfect harmony.

    Let peace begin with me
    Let this be the moment now.
    With ev'ry step I take
    Let this be my solemn vow

    To take each moment and live
    Each moment in peace eternally
    Let there be peace on earth
    and let it begin with me.


  • Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

    Joyful, joyful, we adore thee,
    God of glory, Lord of love;
    hearts unfold like flowers before thee,
    opening to the sun above.
    Melt the clouds of sin and sadness;
    drive the dark of doubt away.
    Giver of immortal gladness,
    fill us with the light of day!

    All thy works with joy surround thee,
    earth and heaven reflect thy rays,
    stars and angels sing around thee,
    center of unbroken praise.
    Field and forest, vale and mountain,
    flowery meadow, flashing sea,
    chanting bird and flowing fountain,
    call us to rejoice in thee.

    Thou art giving and forgiving,
    ever blessing, ever blest,
    well-spring of the joy of living,
    ocean depth of happy rest!
    Thou our Father, Christ our brother,
    all who live in love are thine;
    teach us how to love each other,
    lift us to the joy divine.

    Mortals, join the mighty chorus
    which the morning stars began;
    love divine is reigning o'er us,
    binding all within its span.
    Ever singing, march we onward,
    victors in the midst of strife;
    joyful music leads us sunward,
    in the triumph song of life.
