MUSIC OF CHRIST: Volume 9

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

 

 

1.  I AM A SONG

 


I am a song of tender mercy sung by the One Who made us all.
Each note affirms that you are worthy, and to your home you are recalled.

Refrain: Come home, My child. Long I've been waiting to hold you close and dry
your tears. You have not sinned. You're only dreaming. Come home to Me,
My child so dear. 

2. I am a song the Father's singing throughout the universe of time.
In every sleeping mind it's ringing to break the ego spells that bind.  Refrain
 

3. I am a song of joy and laughter to light your way and gently show
this world you made filled with disaster was never real - it's just a joke. Refrain
 

4. You are a song of tender mercy I love to hear the Father sing.
Each note affirms that we are worthy and lifts our minds as one to Him. Refrain

 

 

2.  YOU CAN'T FOOL ME

 


Refrain: You can't fool me. I know Who You are. You think You are hiding and safe
 in the dark. But I've got your number, can't mistake your light. You can't fool me -
You're the Christ!

1. You pretend to be normal, with the usual lies: someone little and frightened who just wants
to survive. But I've seen the glory behind your facade. Such love and such power comes only
from God. Refrain
 

2. Your mind wears a body adn pretends it is you. Maintain and protect it is all that you do.
But I've seen the glory your spirit can't hide, so tender and holy it must be Divine. Refrain
 

3.  Unfairly treated is the role that you play. Your fears and defenses keep others away.
But I've seen the glory that shines in your heart. Your human disguises can't hide what you are.
Refrain.

 

 

3.  ARE YOU WILLING?

 


Are you willing to be (beautiful)* and shine your love?
Yes, I'm willing to be (beautiful*) and shine my love. (Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful) in Christ.
Yes, I'm willing to be (beautiful*) and shine my love.
*(gentle, joyful, peaceful, helpful, worthy, giving, open trusting, radiant)

 

 

4.  LUCID DREAM

 


1. In my lucid dream, I behold a world of seasons, cycles, time and change and nothing that
endures. Flowing like a stream, the images appear to act out stories of a life beset with pain
and fear. Dreaming, I am dreaming of earth and sun and stars, a universe of forms that say 
 from God I've gone apart. I've left his loving heart.
 

2. Into my lucid dream, the Spirit comes to guide and teaches me that all I see are thoughts
within my mind. On perception's screen are shadows of the past and endlessly I summon
them to try to make them last. Dreaming, I am dreaming of anger, guilt and death.
But Spirit tells me, "Holy child, give Me your dreams to bless. And I will give you rest."
 

3. Within my lucid dreaming of what was never real. And as I laugh the dream away,
my mind is gently healed by what the Light reveals.

 

 

5.  GARDEN OF CHRIST

 


1.  Come to the garden so fragrantly blooming with flowers of gentleness, blossoms of light.
Come and partake of the Spirit's renewing. Rest in the beautiful garden of Christ. In guilt's
desolation this garden was placed to remind God's creations of His love and His grace.
2.  Here in the garden is great variation, a rainbow of colors, all sizes and shapes. But all of
 them bless with the same power. The flowers are many but the garden is one. Hear angels
 singing with joy at the sight of forgiveness springing in a garden of light.
Come to the garden so fragrantly blooming with flowers of gentleness, blossoms of light.
Come and partake of the Spirit's renewing. Rest in the beautiful garden of Christ.
                                                               

 



6.  SHINE

 

 

1. Shine, shine, light of God. Shine through all my mind.
Shine away all darkness there with radiance divine.

2. Light will heal as light reveals the world that guilt has dreamed.
Light of truth will gently soothe the mind by love redeemed.

3. Shine, shine, light of peace. Shine through all my mind.
Shine away all darkness there with radiance divine.

4. God creates with holy Rays, that blaze within Hi mind.
His love instills and ever wills the glory that is Christ.

5. Shine, shine, light of joy. Shine through all my mind.
Shine away all darkness there with radiance divine.

6. In your eyes I see a light that blesses and forgives.
One holy Mind that's wholly kind is where we both do live.

7. Shine, shine, light of God. Shine through all my mind.
Shine away all darkness there with radiance divine.

 



7.  BEAUTIFUL MIND

 


Refrain: Beautiful mind, shining with peace. Beautiful mind, loving eternally,
flowing with joy, creating with light: The beautiful mind of the Christ.

1. Limits, boundaries can't contain its holy, abstract power.
Past and future can't constrain its truth that's ever Now. Refrain

2. Silent, empty singing fullness in God's Heart abides:
Knowing, loving, living stillness, unity of light. Refrain

3. Tender, gentle, always present as I go within,
leading me back home to Heaven, where I've ever been. Refrain

 



8.  THE NURSERY

 

 

1. In the nursery of time, a sleeping child plays games of mind,
making up a world of toys and giving each a voice.
Let's pretend there's more and less, birth in bodies, age and
death, pleasures we can get and keep and differences in you and me.

2. In the nursery of fear, puppets seem to be so real, learn to
steal and hate and kill, playing games of guilt. I'll pretend to
love just you if you do what I want you to. But each of us will have
a mind a private, separate place to hide.

3. Spirit calls, My child, awake. Remember heaven where you're safe.
Judgment is a children's toy that robs the mind of joy. You gave to toys
your fearful thoughts that you could live apart from God. Now your idols
break the rules you made for them and turn on you.

4. In My nursery of dreams, I'll teach you that your world's unreal.
The winner of salvation's game is everyone who plays. You'll learn
to laugh at monsters gruff when you see you made them up. You'll
see your brother, is yourself, for you are one. There's no one else.

5. In the nursery of joy I've put away my children's toys. Father, by
Your Love I wake, at one with You in grace.

 



9.  DANCE FOR THE MAIN MAN (by Susan Johnson)

 


1. I don't want to laugh so you'll like me. I don't want to cry if you don't.
I don't want to be people-pleasing. I don't want to be and I won't. I don't
want to nod at your nonsense or say words that don't mean a thing. I can't
do my dance for the Main Man with someone else pulling my strings.

Refrain: I just want to dance for the King. Oh I just want to dance for the King.
I just want to dance for the Main , Main Man. I just want to dance for the King.

2. You may think I am being hard-headed or think that I'm very uncouth. If I
have to say yes when I really mean no, I'm living a lie - not the truth. Don't
want to agree so you'll love me. Don't want to be cute for your smile. I just
want to dance for the Main Man and hang out with Him all the while. Refrain

3. I don't want to dance so you'll give me your money or jewels or love. I just
want to dance for the Main Man, Who provides all I need from above. There's
not anything you can give me. Don't want anything the world's got. I just
want to dance for the Main Man. It's like this: I just can't be bought.
I just want to dance for the King. I just want to dance for the King. I just want
to dance for the Main, Main Man. I just want to dance for, I just want to love
for, I just want sing for, I just want to cheer for, I just want to live for an do
everything for, I just want to dance for my King.

13.  YOU AND ME, BABE

 


1. It's you and me, babe. You meet all my needs. Our meeting was fate - don't you agree?
You are my salt and I am your pepper. Love between two can't get any better. I'll love you dear,
always, forever and ever. It's you and me, babe.

2. It's you and me babe. Ain't relationship sweet? Just you and me, babe. You make me
complete. You are the eggs and I am your bacon. Here is my heart: It's yours for the taking -
as long as, dear one, a few changes you're making. It's you and me, babe.

3. It's you and me, babe, so why are you crying? I'm doing my best, It's you who aren't trying.
You are the bread and I am your butter. I'm going out, and when you recover, just give me a call.
I'll come be your love. It's you and me, babe.

4. It was you and me, babe, and then something changed. It seems whatever I don, you find fault
and complain. I give you my all, and still you feel needy. When we make love, you say I'm too
speedy. You don't like my friends and you won't let me be me. That's all for you and me, babe.

5. I feel so alone, and this can't be right. I'm sure God will send me a partner for life, someone
who'll be the lint in my navel, who's gentle and kind, sweet, willing and able to love me forever
and sit at my table: Just the two of us, babe.

6. Now look who is here. Could it be true? My soulmate has come. My dear, it is you! You are
my salt and I am your pepper, love between two can't get any better. I'll love you dear, always
forever and ever. It's you and me, babe.

home. Refrain

Our joining makes a path of light on which we go in grace. Refrain 

4. We go to meet the newborn world and claim it for the Christ.

Sweet joy is filling every heart as all in Love unite. Refrain

 

 

15.  MIRROR, MIRROR

1. Mirror, mirror, on the wall shows to me a self that's false: separate, selfish, small and weak,
desperate, lonely, incomplete. Little body, world exploring, learning how to name ten thousand
things all different and no two are the same. Some are good and some are bad and I can learn
to tell the ones that give me pleasure and the ones that give me hell.

2. Mirror, mirror, shows me grown, independent, on my own. Other bodies come and go. I'm
unworthy. Do they know? Put a mask on, smile, be friendly, show your confidence. Be cute, be
sexy, have a good time or at least pretend. That special love will come along and rescue me from fear.

He'll want to spend his life with me. He'll wipe away my tears.

3. Mirror, mirror, darkened glass shows a self that cannot last: Body aging, breaking down,
perceiving fearful sights and sounds. Pain and sickness my companions, loneliness that burns.
Relationships that never work, no earthly place to turn. Dimly I can hear a Voice that tells me
I must bring my shattered dreams into my mind and look on them with Him.

4. Mirror, mirror in my mind shows to me a Self divine. Radiant, shining child of God is what
I am and always was. Face of Christ is lighted, peaceful, blessed eternally. When I choose my
innocence, that's all that I can see. I'm the mirror. You're the mirror of the lovely truth. Behold
in me your holiness reflected back to you. Mirror, mirror in my mind to me a Self divine.

 

 

16.  WE ARE ONE

 

 

1. We are one, beloved. We are one in Christ, two wings of the dove ascending in light. And we
have on voice to sing of soul flight. We are one, beloved, in Christ.

2. We are one, beloved. We are one in truth, two eyes that behold one heavenly view. The vision
we share gently heals and renews. We are one, beloved, in truth.

3. We are one, beloved. We are one in peace, two ministering hands that bless and release. We
are joined in one purpose til all sorrows cease. We are one, beloved, in peace.

4. We are one, beloved. We are one in the One, two rays of light that stream from the Son. As
we shine together to dark is undone. We are one, dear heart, in the One.

 

 

17.  SANCTUARY

 


Refrain: Sanctuary, sanctuary, holy place of rest. Sanctuary, sanctuary, in the Spirit blessed.

1. In my mind abides an altar where I come for peace. Leaving all the world behind me,
here I seek release. Refrain 

2. From the altar sweet Atonement speaks into my heart, gently whispers,

"Child, it's just a dream that you're apart." Refrain 

3. Angels fold their wings around me, sing with silent love. Their soft vibrations

undo all the pain that never was. Refrain

4. Fearful dreams of past and future fade as I forgive. In this timeless shining

moment I forever live. Refrain

 

 

18.  YOU CAN TRUST

 

 

1. You can trust the light in me to lead you safely home. And you can trust the Father's
 Love to claim you as His own. 
Refrain: Miracles are given you as tokens of our love, to heal and bless and comfort you
and teach you how to trust.

2. You can trust my Voice in you to speak pure words of truth. And you can trust you
Father's Love in which we all abide. Refrain

3. You can trust the face of Christ that in each brother shines. And you can trust the Father's
Love in which we all abide. Refrain

4. You can trust the light in me to lead you safely home. And you can trust the Father's Love to
claim you as His own.

 

 

19.  "SO NOW RETURN..." (From A Course in Miracles - S-3.IV.10)

 

 

"So now return your holy voice to Me. The song of prayer without you.
The universe is waiting your release because it is its own. Be kind to it
and to yourself, and then be kind to Me. I ask but this; that you be
comforted and live no more in terror and in pain. Do not abandon Love.
Remember this; whatever you may think about yourself, whatever you may
think about yourself, whatever you think about the world, your Father needs
you and will call to you until you come to Him in Peace and last."
