MUSIC OF CHRIST: Volume 7

A collection of songs that came from Holy Spirit by way of Resta.


 


 

1.  THE DEEP WITHIN

 

Carry me into the deep within, where holiness in shining silence sings, where God in love claims me as His own, where I am truly home in the deep within.

Refrain: Nothing in this world can help me.  No one in this world can tell me anything about peace and salvation.  A voice inside my mind is saying it will help me find the way in through the quiet door of meditation.

Take me past my terror of the light, the clouds of guilt that make an endless night, false images that have me hypnotized and locked in compromise with a world of lies.  Refrain

Take me deep, deep within the mind, to pierce the veil of separateness in time.  Sing to me a lullaby that wakes and gently helps me break dark spells that bind.  Refrain

Angels, come, and lift me on your wings.  To the light, my trembling spirit bring.  Willingness is all I have to give, but how I long to live in the deep within.  Refrain

 

 

2. MYSTERIES

". . .it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 13:11

Mysteries of joy, sealed within the truth, open like a rose anointed by the dew.  Mysteries of bliss take my breath away, when I close my eyes and turn within to pray.

Refrain:  My mind becomes lost in the glory, the radiant sweetness of God's love.  Fear dies in its presence so holy.  I rise on the wings of the dove.

Suffering and sin, loneliness and pain, vanish in the light when I contemplate His Name.  There is only Now, shining and complete, in union with the One Whose love created me.  Refrain

I hear the angels sing their melodies of light.  They wash my mind in peace and tell me I am Christ.  And when it seems the joy no longer can I bear, they seal into my heart sweet songs of love to share.  Refrain

My brothers, will you come into the light with me, remember we are one, remember we are free?  The mysteries of love would Spirit have us know.  Our joining is the path that leads to Heaven Home.  Refrain

 

 

3. RAIN, LIGHT

"For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thy offspring."  Isaiah 44:3

Rain, sweet rain, full of roses, falling down.  Rain, tender rain, into silence falling down.  Rain, green as the grass, blue as the sky when rain has passed.  Rain, maple rain, full of roses, falling down.

Light, liquid light, shining fullness, shining round.  Light, singing light, into silence, shining round.  Light, calling to me: "You are His Christ eternally."  Light, tender light, full of roses, shining round.

Rain, shining rain, silence singing, falling round.

 

 

4. LOVE'S MANIFESTO

 

I will not compromise.  I will not sacrifice.  I'll not believe the lies of sin and lack.  I will not buy the bait of judgment, doubt or hate.  I will not rage at fate, by fear attacked.  But I will shine my light, let Spirit heal my sight to look upon the Christ in everyone.  And love I will extend, thoughts of forgiveness send, and let my sadness end, guilt be undone.

I will not hide in fear and cover up my ears when Spirit's Voice I hear calling me home.  I will not go apart live in the secret dark, or close my mind and heart to love's sweet tones.  But I will take your hand, ask you to understand, and do all that I can to speak the truth.  I'll see your shining soul, remember we are whole.  To heaven we will go, our mind made new.

My brother, we are one.  We are God's holy Son and nothing have we done to leave His Mind.  In Him our being is.  Only in God we live.  When we learn to forgive, this truth we find.  What joy to soar in grace and ever celebrate the light that God creates to shine through us.  We join in holy peace, the past of pain released.  All dreams of guilt must cease in God's great love.

My brother, we are one.  We are God's holy Son and nothing have we done to leave His Mind.  In Him our being is.  Only in God we live.  When we learn to forgive, this truth we find.

 

 

5. PICTURE (by Barbara Varley, with permission of Robert Varley)

I am willing for my life to be a picture painted by Holy Spirit, painted by Holy Spirit.

 

 

6. I AM SPIRIT

 

I am spirit.  I am divine.  I am spirit, a light that shines through all creation, from seed to star, the lighted Presence in every heart. 

Refrain: I am spirit, spirit, spirit, spirit.  I am spirit, spirit, spirit, spirit - divine!

I am spirit.  I am whole.  I am spirit, eternal soul, unborn, undying, many and one, with endless power of peace and love. Refrain

I am spirit, unbound and free, holy vibration, pure energy, everywhere, nowhere, beyond, within, eternal silence that sounds and sings. Refrain

 

 

7. THE VOICE BEYOND TIME

(What you hear is what you hear.)

 

 

8. GRAPES WITHIN THE WINE

 

As the flower loves to bloom, as the nighttime loves the moon's silver light upon the sea, as the eagle loves the sky, and the mountain loves the high cold winds of purity: So we love our holy God,

Refrain: We love communing with the Spirit in our minds.  Peace is only found in God, Who created us to be one Self divine.  We are the grapes within the wine.

As the mother loves her child, as the baby loves the smile of tenderness she sees, as the ocean loves the waves, as the sunlight loves its rays of warmth and purity:  So we feel the love of God, Refrain

As the poem loves the rhyme, as all space embraces time in holy harmony, as the music fills the heart, as creation loves the stars singing hymns of majesty: So we celebrate with God, Refrain

 

 

9. HAVE YOU SEEN THE LORD?

 

Have you seen the Lord?  He's walking next to you in the one who rejected you, and sorrow fills your heart.  Have you seen the Lord, imprisoned within the pain, shackled by guilty chains that keep you both apart?  He's in the other, wife, husband, brother.  Beyond the hating, His Love is waiting.  In your forgiving, the Christ is risen in love.

Have you heard the Lord? He's begging you: "Stop the lies, the words that demean, deride the value of your souls."  Have you heard the Lord, crying for mercy's bread, dying of thirst, unfed by kindness in your home?  He's in the other, father or mother.  Beyond the hating, His Love is waiting.  In your forgiving, the Christ is risen in love.

Have you touched the Lord with gentle, forgiving hands, with silence that understands, enfolds Him tenderly?  Have you held the Lord in the sweetness of love's embrace?  Do you know that He wears the face of every enemy?  He is the other, friend, foe or lover.  Beyond the hating, His love is waiting.  In your forgiving, the Christ is risen in love.

Have you seen the Lord?  He's walking next to you, and He's expecting you to offer Him your heart.  Have you heard the Lord, calling you from the pain: "Beloved, undo these chains now keeping us apart.  I am the other, wife, husband, brother.  Beyond the hating, My love is waiting.  In your forgiving, the Christ is risen in love."

 

 

10. FIELDS OF PEACE

 

In quiet fields of peace, green pastures of the mind, all conflict is released.  The light of wholeness shines.  With God I'm one, His holy Son.  In heaven I reside.  Joyfully the truth I see: I am my Father's Christ.

In quiet fields of peace, I love to walk with you in shared identity of holiness and truth.  Each moment is a joyous gift we offer everyone.  Our joining heals the mind of grief, enfolding all in love.

In quiet fields of peace, green pastures of the mind, all conflict is released.  The light of wholeness shines.

 

 

11. BEYOND THE NIGHT

 

Beyond the night, there is the day.  The world will turn, light have its way, bathing the earth in golden rays.  Beyond each night, there lies the day.

Beyond the hate, the True Self shines.  The ego hides a Self divine.  Searching with love, the truth we find.  Beyond each mask, God's image shines.

Beyond the pain, there lies the peace.  Each suffering one may find release.  Forgiving all, our sorrows cease.  Beyond the pain, there lies the peace.

Beyond the body shines the soul, longing for Love to take it home, at one with God, redeemed and whole.  Beyond the body shines the soul.

Beyond all time is timelessness, eternal life shining and blessed, infinite Mind by love caressed.  Beyond all time is timelessness.

Beyond the night, there is the day.  The world will turn, light have its way, bathing the earth in golden rays.  Beyond each night, there lies the day.

 

 

12. LIGHT OF THE WORLD

 

Light of the world, radiant, sweet, shining within each soul who sleeps: time to awake, rise like the sun, bless everyone.  Light of the world in your mind, blazing within your heart divine, longs to break forth, to undo the night with light of the Christ.

Refrain: Light of the world is what we are.  We shine like the glory of the stars.  Light of God's truth forever lives.  It can be seen when we forgive.

Fear not the clouds that hide your light.  Trust in the power of the Christ.  It is your own, waiting for you if you will choose.  Your radiant light can be released.  Forgiveness frees your shining peace.  Let go the past.  Remember the love of God in each one.  Refrain

Beacon of hope, bright morning star, blazing the path out of the dark, frightened ones call: Show us the way from sorrow to grace.  You are the light that God has sent.  Yours is the light of innocence.  Give it away.  Shine from within.  True vision bring.  Refrain

Light of the world, radiant, sweet, shining within each soul who sleeps: time to awake, rise like the sun, bless everyone.

 

 

13. ANGELS' KEEP

"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Psalms 91:11

Welcome to the angels' keep.  Tarry here in healing peace.  Leave all fear and cares behind.  Enter now our love divine.  Enfolded in vibrations sweet, you're in the angels' keep.

Angels greet you, "Welcome, child.  Come and rest with us awhile.  In a room of rainbow light, where softly play the hymns of Christ, you'll be immersed in love so deep, here in the angels' keep.

"When you're ready, join our feast of songs and laughter, joy and glee.  Your brothers come to share with you the bright remembrance of the truth.  Time to awaken from your sleep, here in the angels' keep."

Angels help you go within to wash away all dreams of sin.  Hidden sorrows are revealed, by angel laughter gently healed.  For guilty you can never be, here in the angels' keep.

Angels call you, "Come outside and walk with us in morning's light.  Behold the beauty of the earth affirming your eternal worth.  You are the answer that you seek, here in the angels' keep."

Now it seems it's time to part, and angels comfort wistful hearts: "Child, we live in loving minds, unbound by place or form or time.  And so, dear one, you'll ever be here in the angels' keep."

 

 

14. GIVE ME YOUR BLESSING

 

Give me your blessing, brother in light.  Give me your blessing, sister in Christ.  When we remember that we are one, old dreams of suffering and pain are undone.  When we remember that God is our source, we gather our lilies and lay down the thorns.

Give me your blessing, my holy friend.  Give me your blessing and let nightmares end.  Come to this moment, shining and clean.  Join in forgiveness, by God's love redeemed.  Come to this moment, holy and true, innocent, joyous, by God's love made new.

Give me your blessing, God's holy child.  Love and forgiveness are there in your smile.  Dark clouds dissolving; light shining through.  With Christed vision the dark we undo.  Happiness rising like a sweet song.  Here is the new day for which we have longed.

Give me your blessing, brother in light.  Give me your blessing, sister in Christ.

 

 

15. SOMETHING IS BLOOMING

"Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?  I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."  Isaiah 43:19

Something is blooming.  Something is rising.  Something is growing, something being born.  Something is singing.  Something is springing.  Something is dancing in the light of the dawn.  La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Something is moving.  Something is freeing.  Something is lifting the stone from the tomb.  Something is longing, something responding, quickening life in our Earth Mother's womb. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Something is seeking.  Something is reaching.  Something is thrusting up out of the dark.  Something revealing, something is healing.  Something is warming, renewing the heart. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Someone is praying.  Someone is changing, someone emerging from prisons of old.  Someone forgiving, in truth now living.  Someone is knowing the joy of the soul. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Someone is blessing.  Someone is helping.  Someone is telling of life without end.  Someone is caring.  Someone is daring.  Someone is loving and being a friend. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Seekers are seeking. Teachers are teaching all of the pathways that lead us to God.  Mountains we're climbing.  Wisdom we're finding, the love and the peace and the truth we have sought. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

Sun and moon dancing.  Planets are whirling.  Galaxies spiral their joy and their light.  Stars sing the glory, chanting the story of Universe filled with the Spirit of Christ. La la la la.  La la la la. La la la la la la.

 

 

16.  SHINE, HOLY LIGHT

 

Refrain: Shine, holy light, gentle light of Christ.  Shine, holy light.  Shine within my mind.

Shine away the blocks to love.  Shine away the false.  Shine away resistances to the memory of God. Refrain

Dissolve my thoughts of separateness and images of fear, until I see the Face of Christ shining bright and clear. Refrain

Bathe my mind with light of joy, the radiance of the One.  Cleanse away sad dreams of pain with the tender light of love. Refrain

Help me bve a child of light, shining as I dream.  Illuminate my holiness to be a light that heals. Refrain

Let my brothers see in me the light that is their own, honoring their holiness and leading them back home. Refrain

 

 

17. BE IN THE BEING

 

Undo the doing.  Untry the trying.  Unlearn the learning.  Unstrive the striving.  Release the holding.  Cast off your worries.  Unthink your thinking.  Slow down your hurries.

Refrain: Be in the being.  See in the seeing.  Be love in the loving.  Be free in the freeing.  Christ as your being gives you the seeing, loves through your loving and frees through your freeing.

Unwin your winning.  Unlose your losing.  Unsin your sinning.  Unchoose your choosing.  No need for defenses.  Forgive unforgiving.  Turn off your senses.  See God in all living. Refrain

Let go.  Let Spirit do all the doing.  Surrender.  Don't fear it, your spirit's renewing.  The songs you are singing flow out of heaven.  Into time they are bringing the peace that's forever. Refrain
