“LIGHT THE FLAME”                                                            copyright 2007 Joanna Schwarz                                                                                                                            arr. Larry Nickel        

Wide as the sea                                            
Forest and tree                                            
Mountain and sky                                        
Eagle on high

Free as the wind                                            
Soft as the rain                                            
Solid as stone                                            
Spirit of home.

We’re soaring on high                                                                     
and feeling alive.

Light the Flame. . . and feel the spark of inspiration                   
Touch the world. . . . and set on fire imagination                            
Now is the moment we’ve waited for                                
Dreams light the future that we explore.

Fan the fire . . . of hope that’s burning deep within you                    
You can inspire . . . all those around who journey with you.

 BRIDGE                                                  
Live . . . the dream                                        
Find . . . the heart                                         
Live the dream and feel the passion                                
Find the heart of your compassion                                
Be. . . the . . . most. . . you . . . can  . . .be

Light the Flame . . . and feel the spark of inspiration                   
Touch the world. . . and set on fire imagination                            
Journey of life takes us to the stars                                
Bringing us home again to who we are

Wide as the sea                                             
Forest and tree                                            
Mountain and sky                                        
Eagle on high

Free as the wind                                            
Soft as the rain                                            
Solid as stone                                            
Spirit of home.  

Live . . . the dream                                         
Find . . . the heart                                         
Live the dream and feel the passion                                
Find the heart of your compassion                                
Be. . .the. . . most. . .you. . .can. . .be

Live the dream . . . find the heart. . . . .Light . . . the Flame!

PASS THE BREAD OF FRIENDSHIP
Vs. Pass the bread of friendship, pour the wine of care,
Joining in communion as we come to share,
Songs of hope and healing, ballads of the soul,
On the quest for meaning, yearning to be whole.

Refrain: Join us at the table, share with us the feast,
Trusting in the Spirit to uphold the least.

Vs. We are all one family, kindred in the heart,
Living out the wisdom, we are works of art.
At the sacred table, ev'ryone is kin,
All are welcome, meet us at the Holy Inn.

Refrain: Join us at the table, share with us the feast,
Trusting in the Spirit to uphold the least.

Vs. Pass the bread of friendship, pour the wine of care,
Joining in communion as we come to share,
Pass the bread of friend--ship.  A - men.

TO BE A WINDOW
Vs. To be at peace with gratitude and treasure moments shared,
To value friends who give support and bask in loved one's care.
To sing a song from depth of soul - and listen to Love's tune,
To ponder at -- the rising sun, to dance with stars and moon.

Refrain: To be a window of God's Love,
To live and die in faith,
To have the strength to laugh and cry,
To savour life's embrace.

Vs. To know the challenge has been met and trust that all is well
To safely rest when day is done and hear the voices swell.

Refrain: To be a window of God's Love,
To live and die in faith,
To have the strength to laugh and cry,
To savour life's embrace. . .

Day is done, gone the sun, from the lake, from the hill,
From the sky, all is well, safely rest -- God is nigh.
