Father, I place into Your hands
The things I cannot do
Father, I place into Your hands
The things that I've been through
Father, I place into Your hands
The way that I should go
For I know my life depends on you.
Father, I place into Your hands
My friends and family
Father, I place into Your hands
The things that trouble me
Father, I place into Your hands
The person I would be
For I know my life depends on you.
Father, I want to be with You
And do the things You do
Father, I want to speak the words
That You are speaking too
Father, I want to love the ones
That You will draw to You
For I know that I am one with You.

Whatsoever you do to the least of my people, that you do unto me.

When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
When I was thirsty, you gave me to drink.
Now enter into the home of My Father.

When I was little, you taught me to read.
When I was lonely, you gave me your Love.

When I was laughed at, you stood by my side.
When I was happy, you shared in my joy.

Like a sunflower that follows
Every moment of the sun,
So I turn towards You, to follow You my God.

Refrain: I have come to thee to take thy touch before I begin my day.

Let thy eye rest upon my eyes for a while.
Let me take to my work the assurance of thy comradeship my friend.
Fill my mind with thy music to last through the desert of noise.
Let thy love's sunshine kiss the peaks of my thoughts and linger in my life's valley where the harvest ripens.

Let there be a light in the world
let there be light in the people
let there be god in our lives
from now on.
(Let there be Love, Joy, Peace, and Happiness Etc. …….)

REF: Make God Your Guru

Let Him tell you what to do
Listen, He's calling clear and true
Take time to listen
Take courage to obey,
The Inner voice is calling, calling
Inner voice is calling, calling
Inner voice is calling, calling you.
There are voices all around me
My enemies and my friends
Do this don't do that
the chorus never ends
But I shall always listen to
that quiet inner voice
It’s swift and definite
And I have made my choice.

Lord we pray for golden peace,
peace all over the land,
Where all people dwell in liberty,
walking hand in hand.

Ref: Banish fear and ignorance,
hunger thirst and pain,
Banish hate and poverty;
Let no one live in vain,
Let no one live in vain.

Keep all men forever one,
one in love and grace,
Wipe away all war and strife,
Give freedom to each race.

On this School your blessing Lord,
On this School your grace bestow.
On this School your blessing, Lord,
May it come and never go,
Bringing peace and joy and happiness,
Bringing love that knows no end.
On this School your blessing, Lord,
On this School your blessing send.
On this School your loving Lord,
May, it overflow each day,
On this school your loving Lord,
May it come and with us stay,
Drawing us in love and unity,
By the love received from you.
On this School your loving, Lord,
May it come each day anew.
On this School your giving Lord,
May it turn and ever flow,
On this School your giving Lord,
On this School your wealth bestow,
Filling all our hopes and wishes Lord,
In the way you know is best,
On this School your giving Lord,
May it come and with us rest.

This little guiding light of mine
I'm going to let it shine (3)
Let it shine, all the time, let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel, OH NO!
I'm going to let it shine (3)
Let it shine, all the time, let it shine

Make my little light burn for thee
I'm going to let it shine (3)
Let it shine, all the time, let it shine.

When I look at the sky which you have made
At the moon and stars which you set into place
I wonder why you think of me
I wonder why you care
Ref.: Lord, O lord your greatness is seen
In all your beautiful world (2)
When I look at the world which you have made
At the creatures on land and the fish in the sea
I know you care for the smallest bird
I know that you love me. (Ref.)

Lord I've come to your garden
To see what grows there today
Lord I've come to your garden
To love, to work and to pray

In your garden blows a cold-cold wind
That chills the hearts of men

Over your garden rest a dull grey sky
What's the colour of sin.

White are the children of the good life lord
White is the early morning dew
White are the sparkles in the midnight sky
Lord what colour are you.

Walking with the Lord
We are walking in the morning
Lift up your hearts
For you are walking with God.
Singing to the Lord
We are singing in the sunshine
Lift up your hearts
For you are singing to God.
Hand in hand with everyone we are
Walking, walking
Black and white and brown together,
Walking, walking
Singing new songs now
Living new lives
Building new bridges,
Walking distant miles

CHORUS: Well we are walking with the Lord………

Rain and storm will not prevent us
Walking, walking
Faith and hope and love will send us
Walking, walking
Crossing all barriers, climbing up stiles
Breaking through fences,
Walking, distant miles

Well we are walking with the Lord………..

In His time, in His time,
He makes all things beautiful in his time.
Lord, please show me every day,
As you're teaching me your way,
That you do just what you say in your time
In your time, in Your time,
make all things beautiful in your time.
Lord, my life to you bring,
With it's winter and it's spring,
May I fathom everything in your time.
There's time, there's a time,
both for reaping and for sowing there’s time
Time for losing, time for gain,
Time for joy and time for pain,
Every purpose under heaven has a time.

India is my country, and all Indians are my brothers and sisters.
I love my country and I am proud of its rich & varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders, respect, and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion.
I their well-being and prosperity alone lies my happiness.

इतनी शक्ति हमे देना दाता ,
मन का विश्वास कमजोर हो ना l
हम चले नेक रस्ते पे हम से ,
भूलकर भी कोई भूल हो ना l
दूर अज्ञान के हो अँधेरे,
तू हमें ज्ञान की रोशनी दे l
हर बुराई से बचते रहे हम,
जितनी भी दे भली ज़िन्दगी दे l
बैर हो ना किसी का किसी से,
भावना मन में बदले की हो ना l
हम ना सोचें हमें क्या मिला हैं,
हम यह सोचे किया क्या हैं अर्पण l
फूल खुशियों के बाँटे सभी को,
सब का जीवन ही बन जाये मधुबन l
कर दे पावन हर मन का कोना l
हम चले नेक रस्ते पे हम से ,
भूलकर भी कोइ भूल हो ना l
इतनी शक्ति हमे देना दाता ,
मन का विश्वास कमजोर हो ना l

  1. तुम्हीं हो माता, पिता तुम्हीं हो
    तुम्हीं हो बंधु, सखा तुम्हीं हो
    तुम्हीं हो साथी, तुम्हीं सहारे
    कोई न अपना सिवा तुम्हारे
    तुम्हीं हो नैया, तुम्हीं खिवैया
    तुम्हीं हो बंधु, सखा तुम्हीं हों।
  2. जो खिल सकें न वो फूल हम हैं
    तुम्हारे चरणों की धूल हम हैं
    दया की दृष्टि सदा ही रखना
    तुम्हीं हो बंधु, सखा तुम्हीं हो।
  1. ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम
    ऐ मालिक तेरे बन्दे हम, ऐसे हों हमारे करम,
    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हँसते हुए निकले दम.................ऐ मालिक
  2. यह अन्धेरा घना छा रहा
    तेरा इन्सान घबरा रहा
    हो रहा बेखबर कुछ न आता नजर
    सुख का सूरज छिपा जा रहा
    है तेरी रोशनी में जो दम
    वो अमावस को कर दे पूनम
    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हँसते हुए निकले दम.................ऐ मालिक
  3. जब जुल्मों का हो सामना
    तब तू ही हमें थामना
    वो बुराई करें हम भलाई करें
    नहीं बदले की हो कामना
    बढ़ उठे प्यार का हर कदम
    और मिटे बैर का यह भरम
    नेकी पर चलें और बदी से टलें,
    ताकि हँसते हुए निकले दम.................ऐ मालिक
