Your smile smiles for me
Holding sweetness without loss
Ice cream for my soul



A branch is swinging.
Sweeping the sunlight sideways.
Our sky star twinkles.



The Lord comes walking.
Glory floods the whole vast earth.
My Lord, walk in me.


God covers the earth.
All rivers lead to the sea.
I'm traveling home.

Pleasant Friend

Tender bird
Open your wings
Show me your heart
And I will open mine.

Tender Friend
Gently touch my face
Softly love me
And sing in my embrace.

The stars in the heavens
Shine warm on your face.
The beauty of evening
Is pure in your eyes.

Pleasant Friend.



Reach your hands, High
And feel the breeze
Between each finger.

Reach up, Higher
Straighten your spine
Hold back your head
Gazing toward heaven,

Reach your life, Up
And feel God's face
Between each finger.

Reach up, Higher.
Welcome His spirit
Hold open your heart
Stretching toward home.

Reach up, Hold Him
And feel heaven's face
Here in your heart.
