Strickland’s Glen

 

Sweet waters play

The songs of heaven all day

Birds sing, flying free

As they blend in harmony

 

The earth quivers

And whispers its welcome

The earth glows

And shows the way

 

Oh Strickland’s Glen a home

In your arms will always be

Where your stream flows down to the sea

 

Starlit skies overhead

Nothing spoken, nothing said

A silent cloak, deeply tranquil

Everything has become still

 

The ether shimmers

And breathes its welcome

 

Oh Strickland’s Glen a home

In your arms will always be

Where your stream flows down to the sea

Sacred ground I’ve found

Beneath the branches of your trees

Where my heart can feel your gentle peace

 

Seasons change everything

Yet beneath your truth will ring

A caring friend an open hand

Stretching far beyond this land

Inviting in

 

Oh Strickland’s Glen a home

In your arms will always be

Where your stream flows down to the sea

Sacred ground I’ve found

Beneath the branches of your trees

Where my heart can feel your gentle peace

 

Where my heart can feel your gentle peace

Love Upon the Wind

 

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

A light of hope, a light of peace

A light of kindness and compassion

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

 

A ray of love upon the wind, let it flow to all x4

 

Open heart, share the breeze of joy

Open arms, embrace all

 

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

A light of hope, a light of peace

A light of kindness and compassion

A ray of love upon the wind let it flow to all

 

A ray of love .....

Stories Unfold

 

Stories unfold

Ancient footsteps followed

Imprints in the sand

Carried by sea

To a faraway land

 

Shades deepen in the waves

Colouring the walls of the caves

 

Stories unfold

Ageless treasures reach out

Words like gold

Infinite wisdom language of old

 

There was once a maiden

She danced under the full moon

She lay her mantle down

 

Forlorn his soul was captured

Her beauty and her kind brown eyes

He hid away her gown.

 

Out on the ocean

Kindred emotion

Hear the call

 

There was a humble fisherman

Out on the open sea

His heart he gave to a mystic maid

Her song set them free

 

Now through the swirling storms you hear

Echoes of their love

Mysteries of the tide

Bright orb above

 

Mmmmmm.......................................................

 

Hear the call

 

Stories of old

Timeless legends ever unfold

The Enchanted Forest

 

Dooroodoo ...

 

Take me to the enchanted forest

To hear the children play

Floating there among the leaves

I glide, I drift, I sway

 

High upon a branch she lay

Wisdom of the trees

Whispered in her heart today

Everlasting breeze

 

Dooroodoo ...

 

Take me to the enchanted forest

To hear the children play

Where the dappled sunlight falls

I merge into its ray

 

Underneath the canopy

Gentle smile awaits

 

Dooroodoo ...

 

A mother holds her baby close

Tender love aglow

 

Lullaby of the forest

Feel that lullaby

Lullaby of the forest

Breathe that lullaby

 

Dooroodoo ...

 

Take me to the enchanted forest

To hear the children play

Eternal Tones

Bathe my being with the clear quartz healing stream

Cleansing drops from heaven, purifying dream

 

Soothe my Soul with the hum of healing sounds

Chiming blends of colour bursting through my crown

 

Pouring into me, whispering in my skin

Pulsating wholly free, eternal tones ring

 

Grace my heart with the rose quartz healing rays

 

Pouring into me, whispering in my skin

Pulsating wholly free, eternal tones ring

Crystal Rainbow Rays

 

I see you more clearly every day

There’s a star that burns at the core of the words we say

And we touch the moment; it’s a fluid tender wave

We hold our truth in a most gentle way

 

I hear you more clearly all the time

Ever echoing whispers that soften this heart of mine

And we feel the moment an embrace where we align

 

Walking within light we know we’ve touched the sky

Crystal rainbow rays

Colouring our lives along this wondrous journey

Crystal rainbow rays

 

I sense you so strongly far and wide

Endless ebbing and flowing then growing to a rising tide

And then comes the moment our galaxies collide

 

Floating within light we dive the deepest ocean

Crystal rainbow drops

Flow into our souls like shimmering pearls so pure

Crystal rainbow drops

 

All the stepping stones

We found a way to cross them

Into our love

The stepping stones

We found a way to cross them

 

Soaring within light we climb the highest mountain

Crystal rainbow snow

Covering our steps in soothing quiet splendour

Crystal rainbow snow

 

Flying within light we sail the universe

Crystal rainbow stars

Glowing in our eyes reflecting timeless love

Crystal rainbow stars

Within

 

Still, so still, so serene, so calm, still

Flow from our feet in the ground until

Until we reach a tranquil shade

A home that lies within

 

Within, within this moment

Within, within this space

Sun shines in a clearing

Upon a place within

 

Fly on our wings in the air, until

Until we reach a higher heaven

A home that lies within

 

Within, within this moment

Within, within this space

Sun shines in a clearing

Upon a place within

 

Still so still a haven a home within

Rogia

(Rogia is an ancient Celtic word meaning “sacred water”. It is the root word of Reien which are the canals running through Bruges.)

Rogia, Rogia, Rogia, Rogia

 

Warm is de liefde die vloeit in deze stad

Je voelt het in de muren

Omhelzingen die duren

En een hartstocht die je omvat

 

Mooi is de straling, het licht in deze stad

Je voelt het op de pleinen

Alle zorgen verdwijnen

Zalige rust op het wandelpad

 

Hier is de toren

Een troebadoer in mijn hart

Waar de klok van mijn leven start

 

Rogia, Rogia, Rogia, Rogia

Rogia, Rogia, Rogia, Rogia

 

Ooh.....

 

Kalm is de avond die valt in deze stad

Je voelt het aan het water

Vergeet alles tot later

In dit moment het universum bevat

 

Hier zijn de Reien

Het parelmoer en de glans

De bron van mijn levensdans

 

Rogia, Rogia, Rogia, Rogia

 

Ooh.....

 

Translation from Flemish:

The love flowing in this town is warm

You feel it in its walls

Lasting embraces

And all encompassing passion

 

The radiance and light in this town is beautiful

You feel it on the town squares

Disappearance of all cares

A path of blissful tranquility

 

The tower here

Is a troubadour in my heart

Where the clock of my life did start

 

The evening which falls in this town is calm

You feel it by the water

Forget all till later

The universe is embodied in this moment

 

Here the Reien

Are the mother of pearl and the gleam

The source of my life dance

May This Garden Grow

 

May this garden grow with blossoms new

Sunlit drops of morning dew

Steady tender shoots arise above

Soil embracing roots with love

 

May, may, may blessings shower down

Air and earth, symphony entwine

 

May this garden grow with colour true

Radiant in tone and hue

Vivid fragrant herbs release their care

To our gentle souls so fair

 

May, may, may blessings shower down

 

Lavender and chamomile peacefully abloom

Sunflowers and marigolds roses’ sweet perfume

Blueberries and cherry trees Flora sings her tune

 

May this garden grow with leaves so green

Weave a willow branches dream

Quiet, tranquil paths upon the ground

Wonders circling all around

 

May, may, may blessings shower down

 

Lavender and chamomile peacefully abloom

Sunflowers and marigolds roses’ sweet perfume

Blueberries and cherry trees Flora sings her tune

 

May this garden grow with fruit on trees

Echoing of humming bees

Evanescent beauty in the air

Nature breathes a soothing prayer

 

May, may, may blessings shower down

 

Lavender and chamomile peacefully abloom

Sunflowers and marigolds roses’ sweet perfume

Blueberries and cherry trees Flora sings her tune .........

Deep Peace

(Words from an old Gaelic rune)

Deep peace of the running wave to you

Deep peace of the flowing air to you

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

Deep peace of the shining stars to you

Deep peace of the gentle night to you

Moon and stars

Pour their healing light on you,

Deep peace to you.

 

Ooh....... Deep Peace to you

 

Deep peace of the running wave to you,

Deep peace of the flowing air to you,

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you

Deep peace to you

 

Ooh....... Deep Peace to you
