Lyrics: 3 Ships (1985)

 

Save All Your Love

Save all your love
To be a better child
To be a better child
This one act of good

Blessed forever, blessed forever
Midnight singers, midnight high
Sister mercy is in my hour
Midnight lyrics, midnight song

Bringing all that's pure to light
Bringing all that's pure to life
By the grace of God
A child has born

Easier Said Than Done

See it clear
Sounds of emotion
Spreading all o'er the world
Bringing peace for a moment
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done

Hold it there
Try to imagine
Scenes of heaven in motion
Singing songs of devotion
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done

Twice as clear
Bringers of wisdom
Simply trying to touch
And to bring you the truth
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done
Yeah, yeah

Think of a season
So easy to reach
Thoughts of a blue world
Where innocence leads you to
A miraculous high
When someone you remember
Helps by telling you why
(Helps by telling you why)

The pilot is worship
Dig deep within
Not so easily seen
Or amazingly witnessed
To bring you the truth
It's already said and done
Yeah, yeah

Hold it there
You can imagine
All of heaven in motion
Special songs of devotion
Say it's all possible
But it's easier said than done
Yeah, yeah

Think of a season
So easy to reach
Thoughts of a blue world
Where innocence leads you to
A miraculous high
When someone you remember
Helps by telling you why
(Helps by telling you why)

The pilot is worship
Dig deep within
Not so specially seen
Or amazingly witnessed
To bring you the truth
It's already said and done
Already said and done
Already said and done
It's already said and done

See it clear
Sounds of emotion
Spreading all o'er the world
Bringing peace for a moment
Say it's all possible
It's already said than done
It's already said than done
It's already said than done

3 Ships

I saw three ships come sailing

On Christmas day in the morning

And what was in these ships all three
On Christmas day

Forest Of Fire

Clouds will form into the sky
Watching them could make them disappear
Oh, my, what a glowing earth

They can dance into the wind
Exercise the right to believing
In the real forgiving day

Jingle chimes the greeting nature majesty
Of the one supreme who enlightens
Are they being, this the glowing earth

Set it up to the moon
Set it up to the stars
Seeking all of the world
To wisdom of love
See the nature abound
Super nature around

Deep in the depth of the mystic
Sounds of insects singing a special
Song, oh my, what a moving earth

Souls can dance into the sky
Singing them could make them all to say
One love, oh my, what a shining path

Ding Dong! Merrily On High

Ding dong merrily on high
In heaven the bells are ringing

Ding dong merrily the sky
In heaven the angels singing
Gloria-Hozanna in Exchelsis
Gloria-Hozanna in Exchelsis

May you beautiful rhyme
This wonderous day you singers
May you dutifully chime
This midnight hour, ye singers

Gloria-Hozanna in Exchelsis
Gloria-Hozanna in Exchelsis
Dayo
Dayo

Save All Your Love (Reprise)

Save all your love
To be a better child
To be a better child

This one gift of love
Come on a good day
Come on a good day

The Holly And The Ivy

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bares the crown

Oh the rising of the sun
The running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing in the choir

The holly bares a blossom
As white as any flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet savior

Oh the rising of the sun
The running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing in the choir

The holly and the ivy
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bares the crown

Oh the rising of the sun
The running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing in the choir

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do poor sinners good

Oh the rising of the sun
The running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing in the choir

Day Of Days

How does this radiance
Light my eyes
All colors radiate a feeling so

How do we speak of a morn
That burned so bright

Seems only yesterday
As a child
I'd wake to find the reasures of the dawn
Sleep in the sunlight
How thrilled my senses so

Then there in beauty
Full to one passion
Seen as a godesend to our love

Born to be near us
Born to believe us
All in a light that shines
So bright, so close

How on this day so, so far away
A different land was born the King of Kings
How was it then
Was it then a Christmas day

One was a clear star
The mother earth
Seemed ready for the sound of angel songs
Heavenly chorus
It was His day of days

One was a clear star
This mother earth
Seemed ready for the sound of angel songs
Heavenly chorus
It was His day of days

2000 Years

Coupled in the perfect note
To ring you out of place
As birth can dance and sing
It's better, brighter shines this grace

Seas of golden rainbows
Spinning silently in space
As the angels in the heavens
Sing the being of His grace

Sing into the sweetest horn
As light begins the day
2000 years ago they called it
This eternal way

See into the future made
For all our kingdom comes
The joyous of the infinative
Is born this very morn

Where Were You?

Where were you upon that night
Just as the moon was breaking

They had been asleep their sleep
On a hill all of heaven was singing

Glory days upon the earth
This the song of heaven

When at last the spell was heard
All around us feel forgiven

There will stand at His right hand
Singing for the Savior
All will know from this day forth
That the light will always save ya

Goodness knows no boundaries
Goodness knows your freedoms

After all the gentle soul
Can redeem us to His kingdom

Glory days upon the earth
Sent us songs from heaven

When at last its spell is heard
All around us feel forgiven, yeah

O Holy Night

Oh, holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear savior's birth

Long lay the world
In sin and horror crying
Till He appeared
And the soul felt more alive

The thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
O, night divine
O, night when Christ was born

Truly he taught us
To love one another
His law in love
And His gospel in peace
Chains shall He break
For the slave in our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy
A grateful chorus sing we
Let all within us praise His holy name

Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
O, night divine
O, night when Christ was born

O night divine
O night when Christ was born

O night divine
O night
O night divine
O night divine
O night divine

How It Hits You

Who brought this lovely morning
Dancin' in my head, can't help but call you
Dancin' in my head, can't help but call you

Who brought here silent teardrops
Runnin' through my head, can't help but call you
Runnin' through my head, can't help but call you

You know the heavens, they'll be dancin'
All for singing of the glory of the very day

N' in my heart of hearts
I knew it from the very start
S'that you'd be with me
Aim to jump in
Aim to jump high
Are you with me
Are you with me

Oh! how it hits you
It's so amazing how it hits you
Letting go, how it hits you
It's so amazing when it hits you

Who changed this way of thinking
Dancin' in my head, can't help but touch you
Dancin' in my head, can't help but touch you

Who stopped my heart from crying
Running 'round my head, can't help but want you
Running 'round my head, can't help but want you

I opened the door an' I was mesmerized
All the power of the love
That shone around me and within me

N' in my heart of hearts
I know that it had to start
N' you'd be with me
There's a time for living
And a time for loving
And are you with me
Say, are you with me

Oh, how it hits you
It's so amazing how it hits you
Letting go, how it hits you
It's all amazing how it hits you

Letting go can be so easy
Letting go, it will help you
Letting go of the ceiling
Letting go to be near you
Just look at it
Keep it up, keep it up, keep up

There the pleasure to cross
There the pleasure to cross

Letting go, letting go, go, go
I just wanted to tell you

She would say it's so easy
I can't help but believe it
When all around seems to breathe it
How can I not help but be there
I can't help but be there
I can't help but be there

Letting go, letting go, letting go

Jingle Bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

 

Bonus Tracks

Candle Song

Anyone can light a candle
But not the way that you do

Anyone can light a candle
Just like a flower in the rain
You are unique, the same
Each step you take, each dream you realize
Will open your heart, your life

Anyone can light a candle
But not the way that you do
For if we look too close
Pure magic we would see
Pure magic we will be

It's all around each one, it's all around within
The perfect union close inside your dreams
To watch in wonderment as each day begins
They tell me you can hear this song

Anyone can light a candle
But not the way that you do
For if we look too close
Pure magic we would see
Pure magic we will be

Hurry Home

The breakthrough was needed by the sign of the day
Singing out our evolution, children show the way
They made out a charter sealed with a song
It took me across the river to where I belong

Hurry home to your heart, hurry home to the voice
There are times for inner changes, be ready for the choice
Hurry home, said my love, hurry home to the stars
Start a new generation with the freedom that's ours

My friend said bear me witness, I'm coming alive
For the first time in our history no mountains to climb
Be the living soul of this time, be ye wise as the moon
Be the first new generation coming home, coming soon
They call it the cleansing of the loneliest soul
It's an honour to be alive, from this love we'll never fall

Hurry home to your heart, hurry home to the voice
There's a new point to living and a freedom of choice
There's a call throughout the kingdom, there's a call throughout the land
Be as clear as the stars above, holding love in your hand

Hurry home to your heart, hurry home to the voice
There are times for inner changes, be ready for the choice
Hurry home, said my love, hurry home to the stars
Start a new generation with the freedom that's ours

We're gonna change our history, we're gonna change our style
They've been watching for many years, we're growing so wild
Be the children of the future, be the children of the age
We'll be standing there being counted with the strength that it takes

Hurry home to your heart, hurry home to the voice
There are times for inner changes, be ready for the choice
Hurry home, said my love, hurry home to the stars
Start a new generation with the freedom that's ours

Hurry home to your heart, hurry home to the voice
Hurry home to your love, hurry home now
Hurry home to your voice

Ave Verum

See through this teaching life
Shines around my being
Out in the mists of timelessness
I see your face
Hold me closer now
Each and every feeling now is come
At last this majesty is God

Hear me through your love
See me in the light you are
Hold me closer to the earth
And all that gives (and all that is)
Now I feel your true light
Now I see your pure light
Now I hold this love within my heart

Is come
God of love of light will shine
Is come is come at last

Ray Of Hope

A ray of light appears
And tells me someone's there
A ray of hope
As if God's lighting the lamp for me

A friendly hand takes mine
And leads me to the light
A blazing light
Beseeching me to see

A new dawn is beginning
A dawn of revelation
Dawn of illumination
To warm the heart and soul
One ray of light - that's all
But oh, the joy it brings

A shining friend
That's telling us we'll all meet again
Imagine life after life
The dream we never dare to dream
Is ours tonight
A new age is born from one ray of light

There'll always be some things
Wise men will never know
Why doesn't God
Take all the hunger and fear away?

I'm certain
There is a greater plan
Some heavenly design
Where everyone finds love one day

There has to be a reason
For heartache and despair
And once we find that reason
It's something we can share

One ray of light, that's all
But oh, the joy it brings
A shining friend
That's telling us we'll all meet again

Imagine life after life
The dream we never dare to dream
Is ours tonight
A new age is born from one ray of light
