    Stronger With Love by David Gomez Sanz, Richard Schletty

    Cover (front)

    4:25 minutes (6.23 MB).

    Stronger With Love  

    Be my friend, thrill my heart
    Every day, from end to start
    Grow my senses, be my star
    Fill all of me with all you are
    Oh, when I touch your happy soul
    That tender touch makes me whole

    I'm less of me when you are gone
    I need you here to dance our song
    The better part of us grows 
    Stronger with love 

    Better, brighter, stronger with love!

    I invest my life in your gentle soul,
    You got the best of me, that's all I know. 
    Each moment, each pleasure, sigh or laugh
    There's no other treasure I'd rather have
    My senses are heightened when I'm with you
    My spirit is brightened in all we do

    I know that sometimes we must say goodbye
    It's then I feel lost without your light

    My friend, thrill my heart
    Every day, from end to start
    Grow my senses, be my star
    Fill all of me with all you are
    My friend, thrill my heart
    Every day, from end to start
    Grow my senses, be my star
    Fill all of me with all you are
      
    In your heart I'm sure you know
    The better part of us will grow
    Stronger with love
    Stronger with love

    PDF Download: Mount Mary Hymnal (1937)

    From Jeff Ostrowski at Corpus Christi Watershed:

    "MOUNT MARY HYMNAL, produced in 1937 by Sister Mary Gisela, was published in Milwaukee. This was quite a famous hymnal, although in my opinion the poetry of several hymns is a little too emotional & simplistic. You can download all 255 pages."

    Lifting
    7th Movement, Hungry for Heaven

    Raise me skyward in a torrent
    Energize me with your current
    I won't fall, I won't fail
    Word poured from your holy grail

    There's no doubt when you are guiding
    You, my safety for the gliding
    You, my hammer, stylus, bow
    You, my style and my flow

    Hungry For Heaven

    I am everything with Christ
    when my pride has been excised
    Strongest shadow cast on Earth
    comes from supernova birth

    Acting our way
    to a better way of thinking
    Lifting us up
    to a higher state of being

    Now I vow to reach up higher
    Never mind the pain or fire
    Break the shackles, up from mire
    I take you as my sire

    Rolling flesh, cascading breath
    birthing, laughing, crying, death
    Bridging chasms, spanning souls
    Don't let hope die in the shoals

    Innocence destroyed in youth
    Satisfied to be uncouth
    Potential wasted in the hustle
    Something broken in the tussle

    Mighty tree with roots commingled
    Some caressing, some all tangled
    Roots and flowers, endless branching
    Thorns that pierced now used for stanching

    Master gardener sows the way
    Rushing wind will prune decay
    Hunger never so acute
    Life eternal from good fruit

    Lyrics (c)2007 Richard Schletty

    Refrain
    Em D Bm Em
    The Lord hears the cry of the poor,
    C D Em
    Blessed be the Lord.

    C D Em C
    1. I will bless the Lord at all times
    G Am Bm Bm7
    with praise ever in my mouth.
    F B Em C
    Let my soul glory in the Lord
    Am7 Bm Em
    who will hear the cry of the poor.

    2. Let the lowly hear and be glad;
    the Lord listens to their pleas;
    And to hearts broken God is near;
    who hears the cry of the poor.

    3. Every spirit crushed God will save;
    will be ransom for their lives;
    will be safe shelter for their fears,
    and will hear the cry of the poor.

    4. We proclaim your greatness, O God,
    Your praise ever in our mouth;
    Every face brightened in your light,
    For you hear the cry of the poor.

    Tune: LIVING GOD, 7 7 7 7 with refrain; Anonymous; harm. by Richard Proulx, b. 1937, © 1986, GIA Publications, Inc.

    Refrain:
    I received the living God, and my heart is full of joy.
    I received the living God, and my heart is full of joy.

    1. Jesus said: I am the Bread
    Kneaded long to give you life;
    You who will partake of me
    Need not ever fear to die.

    2. Jesus said: I am the Way,
    And my Father longs for you;
    So I come to bring you home
    To be one with him anew.

    3. Jesus said: I am the Truth;
    If you follow close to me,
    You will know me in your heart,
    And my word shall make you free.

    4: Jesus said: I am the Life
    Far from whom no thing can grow,
    But receive this living bread,
    And my Spirit you shall know.

    Between Two Worlds

    Optional song link for Between Two Worlds: www.godlychristianmusic.com

    one foot in heaven, one foot on the earth
    I have the best pearl, yet I still search
    God is my beloved, yet I find much to my shame
    that I am still unfinished for a peace I cannot name.

    ‘cause I’m between two worlds but a citizen of none
    I long for heaven but love this dust and sand,
    I stand divided now, praying let Your will be done
    but then I do my own, Lord reconcile this man.

    I want to stay here, yet I want to leave
    the joy that You promised is so hard to believe
    all that I possess is nothing more than straw
    yet my human frailty makes it hard to leave it all

    to live in this world, but not to be a worldly man
    to traverse across my country as in a strange and foreign land
    to love but not to cling, to use but not to own
    to dwell amongst my people but to never find my home
