Track Name: Ethereal (The Gate)
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelu
Track Name: Crossing Jordan
Your journey has been long.
And though you feel weary, there is but another step to take.
Release your judgment at the water's edge,
for how you got there matters not,
nor anything that came before.
It's what you know in the moment.
Let go your weariness and rejoice,
for you have arrived.
It is done. It is done.

In the midst of darkness,
it's time to believe,
to remember light,
to live in the dream.
How you come matters not.
One step is all you need.
So release your fears
and wade into the water
Knowing by Love's grace that you'll be safe.

A new day is coming.

There will be peace.
There will be love.
There will be moonlight
and stars above.
Nothing to hold us back.
There's only Love,
crossing Jordan.

There will be peace.
There will be love.
There will be moonlight
and stars above.
Nothing to hold us back.
There's only Love,
crossing Jordan.
Track Name: Divinity Chant
The divinity in me,
The divinity in me,
The divinity in me,
sees the divinity in you.

I am divine. (I am divine.)
You are divine. (You are divine.)
We are one. (We are one.)
We are love. (We are love.)

I am divine.
You are divine.
We are love.
We are one.
Track Name: The Coming (Herald)
In the arms of war, I see love.
In the arms of strife, I see peace.
In the arms of poverty, I see giving.
I see light.

In the midst of force, I see ease.
In the midst of fear, I see release.
In the midst guilt and shame, I see innocence.
I see light.

There will be peace.
(There will be peace.)
There will be love.
(There will be love.)
There will be joy unbound.
(There will be joy unbound.)
It's a coming.

In the dark of night, I see hope.
In the dark of despair, I see the way.
In the darkest inner fight, I see balance.
I see light.

There will be peace.
(There will be peace.)
There will be love.
(There will be love.)
There will be freedom.

In the heart of pain, I see care.
In the heart of deceit, I see faith.
In the heart of loss and hurt, I see healing.
I see light.

There will be peace.
(There will be peace.)
There will be love.
(There will be love.)
There will be joy unbound.
(There will be joy unbound.)
It's a coming.

There will be peace.
(There will be peace.)
There will be love.
(There will be love.)
There will be freedom.
Rejoice,

There will be peace.
(There will be peace.)
There will be love.
(There will be love.)
There will be joy unbound.
(There will be freedom.)
It's a coming.

There will be peace.
(There will)
There will be love.
(There will be peace)
There will be freedom.
(and love and joy and peave and love.)
Rejoice, again!
(There will be peace and love, again!)
Track Name: Love Knows the Way
In the morning paper, I see the wars
and all the people settling scores.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Our brave men die on battlefields
never knowing what is real.
Just doing what their orders say.

We trust our lives to lying hands
not knowing how to change the plan.
When will we turn and make a stand
across the world? Heal the dying man.
Let’s start at home, where you and I can.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

There’s no difference in color or creed,
religion, race or ethnic seed.
We’re all just flesh and blood underneath.
Men and women, children too
living, breathing, making do.
We forget no star is out of reach.

We hear the call, but walk on by.
We don’t believe that you and I
can make a difference. So why even try?
But I know love,
love is standing by.
Don’t give up, don’t let her die.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Love knows the way.
If you look you’ll find the light in every day.
Love knows the truth.
So try to be the love in every room.
It could be you.

When the earth is calling out in pain
as oil spills from in her veins
into the waters of her seas,
her creatures die or starve to death
and dolphin’s drown in fisher’s nets;
but few are listening to her pleas.

With coal for power, the mother bleeds.
We strip her lands and cut her trees.
We take more than we ever need
all in the name of corporate greed.
Make today the day we all are freed.

Learn how to see. Learn how to love.
Learn how to be as in heaven above.
Learn how to learn to live and let live.
Learn to believe and learn to forgive.

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Because we’re all one now.
Though they don’t show it on TV,
I know it’s happening somehow.
Come on, shout it out,
“Fear not my friend. It’s love in the end
that’s gonna make a difference right now!”

Be the change.
Let love show the way.

Track Name: I Am
When I'm full of doubt,
not trusting myself.
When I'm searching for the answers,
and I feel overwhelmed.

Give me the strength.
Help me to love me.
Cause I know the power's inside.
Give me the strength,
angels above me, help me remember.

I am love. I am light. I am worthy.
I am free in my life to shine.
I am love. I am light. I am worthy.
I am.

angels above me, help me remember.

Track Name: Dare to Shine
When you're coming to
a crossroads in your life,
and you find the path
you know you want inside,
but you're scared to lead
with just your heart
and your head puts up a fight,
now's the time for you
to choose to shine your light.

You are love.
Shine your light. Set it free.
There is more to you than meets the eye.
There's more than they can see.
So let's God's voice fill your head
and clear your mind.
You are light.
Know your truth and let it shine.
Dare to shine.

And as you travel on
this long and winding road
praying for a helping hand
to ease your heavy load;
and you're feeling like
you can't go on,
but the answer seems it's "No",
now's the time for you
to trust and just let go.

You are love.
Shine your light. Set it free.
You are more than just your circumstance.
You're more than you can see.
So let's God's voice fill your head
and clear your mind.
You are light.
Know your truth and let it shine.
Dare to shine.

God is Love. You are Love.
God is Light. You are Light.
God is Hope. You are Hope.
So let your life burn bright.

And if you find yourself
not knowing what to do,
and you feel like there's an empty void
deep inside of you.
And the darkness clouds
your heart, your mind
and you cannot see the truth.
Now's when you must believe
that Love will see you through.

You are love.
Shine your light. Set it free.
Let grace and power lift you up
to all that you can be.
And let's God's voice fill your head
and clear your mind.
You are light.
Know your truth and let it shine.

You are love.
Shine your light. Set it free.
A child of God in perfect form
for all the world to see.
So let's God's voice fill your head
and clear your mind.
You are light.
Know your truth and let it shine.
Dare to shine.
Track Name: Move Ahead
She gets herself to church every Sunday,
Settles into the pew.
The preacher's spinning tales
of fire and brimstone
And how God's pushing down on you.

She seems lost, but she's found.
Spirit's unbound.
Out of those tired, and dusty pages
She hears a different sound
Calling "Move ahead."
Woah-oh-oh.
Move ahead.
Oh.

Another day, another half-dollar.
It's getting harder and harder
to be a good father.
Off to work. Off again.
Just feels like life going off the rails to him.

They say, "Seek and ye shall find,"
A love that bends the hands of time.
That's what fills his home, fills his mind
Out here on I-85
Waiting to move ahead.

Move ahead. Move ahead into life.
Move ahead. Move into love.
Move ahead to forgiveness.
When it's hard to believe,
and you can't even breathe
Move ahead.

The still small voice has turned to shouting
Just fighting to be heard
Lean into where the fear grows
Lean into what you've learned
You're the one you've been waiting for
Show us your shimmer and your shine
And when the darkness falls answer the call.
Woah-oh-oh. Woah-oh-oh.
Move ahead.
Mm-mm-mm-mm.

Move ahead. Move ahead into life.
Move ahead. Move into love.
Move ahead to forgiveness.
When it's hard to believe,
and you can't even breathe

Move ahead. Move ahead into life.
Move ahead. Move into love.
Move ahead to forgiveness.
Track Name: Good Life
I'm livin' a good life
in the lap of luxury.
The river of abundance
is flowin' right through me.

I know where I'm goin'
and I'm stayin' right on track.
I take what life gives to me
and then I give it all right back.

And when I'm on empty,
it won't be long until I'm full again.
It's all here before me.
I open up my heart
and let it come right in.

I'm lookin' at good signs (yeah)
everywhere I go.
I see the grace and beauty
in everyone I know.

I'm havin' a good time.
I'm happy and I'm free.
I love everybody
and everybody's lovin' me.

And when I'm on empty,
it won't be long until I'm full again.
And it's all here before me.
I open up my heart
and let it come right in.

I'm livin' a good life.
I'm havin' a good time.
I see good signs
everywhere I go
and in everyone I know.

I'm livin' a good life.
And I'm havin' a good time.
Good life. Good life. Good life.
Yeah, I'm livin' a good life.
Yeah, I'm livin' a good life.
Yeah, it's a good life.
And it's time, it's time for some good times
in my life.
It's my life.
Cause I'm livin' a good life.
Yeah, it's a good life.

When you're looking in the mirror in the morning,
you gotta put a smile on your face
and love that man for all he is

And send it through the rest of your day.

Knowing that love will light your way.

Friday, you're rushin' and you're hustlin' at the office,
trying just to finish your day.
The boss comes in demanding time
when you're trying to get on your way.

If you can clear your mind, open your heart
and listen to what she has to say,
you'll find that life goes on more peaceful and free
when you let love light your way.
