Brighter Than the Sun 
C
I sit in silence and hear an inner sound.
F                               C  GC
I feel God’s presence, all around.
C
My heart and His become as one,
F                                  C          G          C
Merging together we are brighter than the sun.

I open my eyes and feel a gentle breeze,
Rustling the bushes it’s the wind in the trees.
Watching the people walk and run,
I see Him again, He’s brighter than the sun.

Walking to work, I smell some baking bread,
Rising in an oven in a nearby shed.
Imagining the taste of a freshly baked bun,
I feel Him again, He’s brighter than the sun.

Sunset has come and I close my eyes.
I go deep inside to find that inner light.
Deeper and deeper, I am nearly done,
I find Him again, He’s brighter than the sun.

Come with me and close your eyes,
Go deep inside and find that inner light.
Deeper and deeper, and one by one,
He’s right there inside of you, He’s brighter than the sun.
Deeper and deeper, and one by one,
He’s right there inside of us, He’s brighter than the sun

Common Home
G
We’re tearing apart our mother Earth,
C                                     G
Like some dogs a’fighting for a dry old bone.
G
When will we learn to do it right,
D                                    C     D    G
And have some respect for our common home.

Rivers and valleys, mountains and streams,
These are some of our most precious things.
We’ve got to treat them as our very own,
And have some respect for our common home.

Birds and trees and insects, you and me,
Each of us has a right to be.
I think that it’s time to make this known,
And have some respect for our common home.

There’s enough in this world for each one’s need,
But not enough for each one’s greed.
I think that it’s time to make this known,
And have some respect for our common home.

It’s not enough to sit here and sing this song.
Let’s wake the world, taking everyone along.
I think that it’s time to make this known
And have some respect for our common home.

For Everyone
D
Does Any one own the sun,
C                 G            D
Can anyone claim the moon?
D
I think it’s plain to see
C                          G          D
That they shine for you and me,
C     G    D            C   G D
And Everyone, For Everyone
C     G   D          C   GD
For you and me, For Everyone

The early bird’s morning call
The Summer’s gentle rain
Fall on one and all
Treating everyone the same.
They’re for you and me, and Everyone
For you and me, For everyone

This great big universe
Belongs to every one of us.
From a tiny speck of sand
To a giant galaxy
It’s for you and me, and Everyone.
For you and me, For Everyone.

Does Anyone own the sun,
Can anyone claim the moon?
I think it’s plain to see
That they shine for you and me
And Every one, For Every one
For you and me, For Everyone.
Till I Found You

E                                   A                           E
I Woke up one morning, I knew it was time to leave.
E                                     A        B7     E
I packed up my bag, and hit that open road.
E                                                A                              E
I didn’t know what I wanted, but was looking for something new.
E                               A   B7         E
Never thought I’d get it, till I found You.

E                                  A              E
I went to the west, and I went to the east.
E                                                     A      B7            E
Someone pointed me north, and after that I headed south.
E                                   A                           E
I Stopped in the middle, I didn’t know what to do.
E                              A   B7         E
Couldn’t get salvation, till I found You.

E                       A              E
Everlasting love, everlasting bliss
E                        A             B7                       E
Everlasting You, making my dreams come true.
E                 B7      E
I’m walking on the path of bliss, now that I’ve found You.
A   B7         E
Couldn’t get salvation till I found You.
I’m walking on the path of bliss, since I found You.

In the Stillness of the Morning 

D                                           G          D
In the stillness of the morning I long for You,
D                       A    D
I call Your name over again.
G       A  D   G   A   D
Come to me set me free.

I go inside to that inner place,
I long to gaze at your smiling face.
Now I see, You’re here with me.

I bring my mind to that highest peak,
I offer my all at Your lotus feet.
My love is true, as I merge with You.
My love is true, as I merge with You

In the stillness of the morning I long for You,
I call Your name over again.
Come to me, set me free.

I Can Never Be Apart From You

D                                   G      A     D
You’re the silence in the center of a storm,
D                         G             A      D
You’re the fire that keeps my heart warm.
G                   A              D
You’re watching everything that I do
G            A            D
I can never be apart from You.

You’re the love in the air that I breathe.
It’s your fragrance that floats in the breeze.
I see you in the many and the few,
I can never be apart from You.

You’re the sound of the mighty ocean’s roar.
You’re the calm in the midst of a war.
I feel your presence through and through,
I can never be apart from You.

Crimson Dawn 
E                                     A
I’m waiting for a new day’s light,
B7             E
I ‘m hoping for a future that’s bright.
E                                            A
I’m watching a new world being born,
B7                 E
Soon I’m gonna see a crimson dawn.

This world is big enough for all,
It’s just that our minds are too small,
To see the beauty of all things,
And the happiness that harmony brings.

I’m waiting for a new day’s light,
I ‘m hoping for a future that’s bright.
I’m watching a new world being born,
Soon I’m gonna see a crimson dawn.

I think it’s time to live and let live,
To stop grabbing, start learning how to give.
How long will it take for us to know,
That the secret of life is letting go?

I’m waiting for a new day’s light,
I ‘m hoping for a future that’s bright.
I’m watching a new world being born,
Soon I’m gonna see a crimson dawn.

As the Word Spins Around

D                                  C    D                  C    D
There’re some people in this world without any voice.
D                             C        D                  C    D
There’s some people in this world without any choice.
C   G          D      C       G        D
And they toil day and night, stuck in their plight,
C     G       D                   C       G      D
As the world spins around, as the world spins around.
D      C     D     C    D     C    D  C
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la

There’re some people in this world, taking everything.
And they never stop to think, what their actions will bring,
As the world spins around, as the world spins around.

There’re some people in this world,
With a spark in their soul,
And they hear the other’s cries,
And they’re ready to arise,
As the world spins around, as the world spins around

Come on people of this world.
We’ve got to change this place,
Bringing happiness and joy,
To all the human race, to all the human race,
As the world spins around, as the world spins around.

I Don’t Eat Meat

G                                        C      D     G
Animals are my friends and I treat them right.
G                                  C            D G
I spare their lives, eating veggies and rice.
C      D   G         C     D   G
I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat flesh,
C      D  G       C D  G
I’m trying to do my very best.

My body is strong and my mind is clear.
So tell everybody far and near, that
I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat flesh
I’m trying to do my very best.

I’m not too thin, and I’m not to fat.
My veggie diet is where its at.
So tell every body in the east and the West,
That I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat flesh.

Our mother planet is very small.
Let’s use everything for the good of all
(that’s why) I don’t eat meat, I don’t eat flesh
I’m trying to do my very best.

Rainbow of Humanity

E                                   A       E
Everybody laughs when they’re glad,
A      E      B7                       E
Everybody cries when they’re sad.
E                             A               E
I don’t care what the people may say,
A                 E           B7       E
I know there’s only one human race.

A          E       B7         E
Brother sister can’t you see
A            E         B7  E
We’re all one big family,
A          E    B7  E
We’re the rainbow of humanity.

We’re all breathing the same planet’s air,
And everyone one has a right to their share.
Red or yellow, black or white,
It’s time to put an end to this useless fight.

Brother sister can’t you see
We’re all one big family,
We’re the rainbow of humanity.

I’m waiting for a better day,
When everyone will see it this way.
I don’t know how long it will be,
Till we all live in harmony,
As the Rainbow of Humanity,
We’ll live like one big family, ‘cause
We’re the Rainbow of Humanity.

One Fine Day (I’m gonna go with a smile)

I came to this world, one fine day, one fine day, one fine day.
I came with a cry as the others smiled one fine day, one fine day.
One fine day, One fine day, One fine day, I came with a cry.

I started to learn the lessons of life, one fine day, one fine day.
I learned how to give with all of might, one fine day, one fine day.
One fine day, One fine day, One fine day, I learned how to give.

I gave what I could to all that I could, One fine day, One fine day.
I tried to do go for as long as I could, One fine day, One fine day.
One fine day, One fine day, One fine day, I did what I could.

I’m gonna leave this world, one fine day, one fine day, one fine day.
I’m gonna go with a smile and let the others cry, one fine day, one fine day.
One fine day, One fine day, One fine day, I gonna leave with a smile
One fine day, One fine day, One fine day, I gonna go with a smile.

The Wise Ones Say
E                        A             E
I went through life losing my way,
B7                           E
making mistakes with each passing day.
A                B7      E
Then I stopped and looked around,
A       B7     E
and this is what I found:
E                                         A     E
If you’ve got something good, do it today.
E                                       B7         E
Gonna do something bad, make a delay.
A                       B7           E
This is what the wise one’s say.

I forgot the good advice and got stuck again.
I found myself in a terrible jam.
Then I listened to a little bird,
And this is what I heard:

If you’ve got something good, do it today.
Gonna do something bad, make a delay.
This is what the wise one’s say.

Another day came and another day went,
I finally learned what the good message meant.
Then I made a fateful choice,
To listen to my inner voice, saying:

If you’ve got something good, do it today.
Gonna do something bad, make a delay.
This is what the wise one’s say.
Forever and Ever 

Drench me with the tears of love,
Hold me close and never, never leave me.
Shower me with your perfect peace,
Forever and ever.

I’m adrift on the sea of life,
Floating further, further from the shoreline.
Pick me up and give me shelter in Your smile.
Hold me close and keep me here all the while,
Forever and ever.

To be with You is my last desire.
Take me closer, closer to that moment.
Charm me with the sweetness of Your gentle song.
Let me know I’m in the place where I belong,
Forever and ever.
