Everyday Blessings: Lyrics

RISE UP
Rise Up Sheet Music

I learn to listen to the stirrings of my soul
And wherever I may go
I’m surrounded by your love
I look around
And in everything I see
There’s peace and harmony
Shining down on me from above
When I rise up

To begin another day
Your words are my reminder
When I’m home and on my way
And when I lie down
Just before I close my eyes
I say a prayer of gratitude for my life

In every moment
In every blade of grass
In the faces that I pass
There’s a spark of holy light
And if I’m worried
About what the day will bring
I just listen to you sing
And I know everything is all right

When I rise up
To begin another day
Your words are my reminder
When I’m home and on my way
And when I lie down
Just before I close my eyes
I say a prayer of gratitude for my life

So many things out in the world
All grab for our attention
It’s easy to forget just who you are
But noticing the little things
And counting all of our blessings
Will keep an open heart

So when you rise up
To begin another day
Keep these words as your reminder
In your home and on your way
And when you lie down
Just before you close your eyes
Say a prayer of gratitude for your life

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
You’ll find it looking at a rainbow

ONE PEOPLE
One People Sheet Music

We are One People
We are One People
We are One People
With many gifts
To offer One Another

There are Jews who come from Paris
And some are from Madrid
Even Jews from Madagascar
Have that “pintle Yid”

Some Jews are Ashkenazi
And some are Sepharad
We all say the same prayers
And worship the same God ‘cause we’re

We are One People
We are One People
We are One People
With many gifts
To offer One Another

Some Jews live in the country
And drink water from a well
Some visit the mikvah
Some plant trees in Israel

Some Jews lay Tefilin
When they say the Shema
Some wear a baseball cap
And some wear a kipah

We are One People
We are One People
We are One People
With many gifts
To offer One Another

Some Jews give Tzedakah
Some join a Chavurah
Some Jews look for answers
And find them in the Torah

Some Jews like to tell stories
Some play on their guitars
Some find wisdom dancing
Underneath the stars

THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL

My friends are there to catch me
They’re there to catch me when I fall
My friends are there to catch me
Their loving kindness matters most of all
(They’re there to listen when I call)
That’s the greatest gift of all

My family’s there to catch me
They’re there to catch me when I fall
My family’s there to catch me
Their loving kindness matters most of all
That’s the greatest gift of all

The darkest moments of my life
Can’t hold a candle to the power of their love
‘Cause I am never lonely
I’m never on my own

My God is there to catch me
He’s there to catch me when I fall
My God is there to catch me
Her loving kindness matters most of all
That’s the greatest gift of all
The greatest gift of all
The greatest gift of all
That’s the greatest gift of all

LOOKING FOR GOD

I’m looking for God in my own way
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God every single day
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God in the factory
I’m looking for God
I’m looking and God’s looking back at me
I’m looking for God

In the rocks in the grass
In the people I pass
In the birds flying up in the sky
In the sun and the moon
In the back of the room
Hidden right there in front of my eyes

I’m looking for God in my own way
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God every single day
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God in the factory
I’m looking for God
I’m looking and God’s looking back at me
I’m looking for God

I look up look down
I dig under the ground
Swim the ocean and fly through the air
Climb to the top of a tree
Till I finally see
That God is everywhere

I’m looking for God in my own way
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God every single day
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God in the factory
I’m looking for God
I’m looking and God’s looking back at me
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God
I’m looking for God

TEND OUR GARDEN

We’ve gotta tend our garden
We’ve gotta help it grow
We’ve gotta tend our garden
Don’t ya know?

We can turn the lights off
And save some energy
We can recycle paper
And protect lots of trees

We can pick up litter
And clean our neighborhood
Instead of saying something mean
We can focus on the good

We’ve gotta tend our garden
We’ve gotta help it grow
We’ve gotta tend our garden
Don’t ya know?

People share the earth
With animals and trees
So we’ve got to be responsible
We can’t do just as we please

The earth is ours to keep
So let’s be nice to it
Our children and grandchildren
Will be so glad that we did

We’ve gotta tend our garden
We’ve gotta help it grow
We’ve gotta tend our garden
Don’t ya know?

If we all work together
It will be easier than it seems
The world will be a better place
Because of you and me

We’ve gotta tend our garden
We’ve gotta help it grow
We’ve gotta tend our garden
Don’t ya know?

CRAYONS
Crayons Sheet Music

Green yellow gold and indigo don’t you know
Are as different as you and me
Black salmon red and jungle green a crazy scene
They live together so why can’t we?

We are crayons
Living in the same box
Joining hands we live and work as one
We can dance and fill the world with colors
Or we can clash
And melt out in the sun

Atomic tangerine and navy blue are in there too
Standing side by side
Pink flamingo and a purple heart we’ve got to start
Before we lose our light

We are crayons
Living in the same box
Joining hands we live and work as one
We can dance and fill the world with colors
Or we can clash
And melt out in the sun

Mountain meadow and desert sand a helping hand
That would tickle me pink
Maize pacific blue and manatee to help me see
So what do you think?

We are crayons
Living in the same box
Joining hands we live and work as one
We can dance and fill the world with colors
Or we can clash
And melt out in the sun

OPEN HEART

With an open heart
It feels like anything is possible
No matter where you are
You know that things will be okay
Because an open heart
Can overcome most any obstacle
And the greatest part
Is that you can start
Today

If you’re feeling lonely
If you’re feeling sad
If you lost the only
Friends you had
Don’t be discouraged
Don’t shed those tears
Just remember that there’s
Nothing to fear

With an open heart
It feels like anything is possible
No matter where you are
You know that things will be okay
Because an open heart
Can overcome most any obstacle
And the greatest part
Is that you can start
Today

You don’t need no money
You don’t need no car
You just love the person
That you are
Once you get things going
The feeling starts to spread
All your cares were only
In your head

With an open heart
It feels like anything is possible
No matter where you are
You know that things will be okay
Because an open heart
Can overcome most any obstacle
And the greatest part
Is that you can start
Today

GOD IS IN THE AIR

As I breathe God into my eyes
I realize that I’m not alone
As the sunlight shines on my head
The love starts to spread
I feel like I’m going home

As I breathe God into the space I’ve made
I open up
I am not afraid
As I breathe God in with a simple prayer
I am filled with life
Because God is in the air

As I breathe God into my back
I start to relax
I start to let go
As the light flows into my heart
My worries depart
My candle begins to glow

As I breathe God into the space I’ve made
I open up
I am not afraid
As I breathe God in with a simple prayer
I am filled with life
Because God is in the air

As I breathe God into my core
My spirits will soar
I’m on my way
As I breathe God into my legs
I’ll never forget
How peaceful I am today

As I breathe God into the space I’ve made
I open up
I am not afraid
As I breathe God in with a simple prayer
I am filled with life
Because God is in the air

As I breathe God into my toes
I’m fully exposed to all that I hold within
As my body fills up with love
I’m warmed from above
I just have to let it in

As I breathe God into the space I’ve made
I open up
I am not afraid
As I breathe God in with a simple prayer
I am filled with life
Because God is in the air
