Early U.S. Premie Music

Pretty well anyone who could play some chords and hold a tune could sing at their local satsang meetings but it took more musical talent to have a tape recorded and sold by Divine Light Mission. The musicianship may have been more sophisticated but the early lyrics were simple, apparently certain in their beliefs though it is extremely likely that most of these musicians no longer believe that Prem Rawat is God come down to earth. The Philadelphia Bliss Band had what sounds like a virtuoso klezmer clarinet player which gave them a unique sound.

Back in August (1973) premie musicians from all over America were called to Los Angeles to record an album. The musicians, numbering 23 in all, came from a variety of bands. Guru Maharaj Ji decided that the album should be called "Who Is Guru Maharaj Ji?" For a number of reasons, however, the record encountered difficulties and eventually Bhole Ji called the project off. At this point seven of the band left to go on tour with Guru Maharaj Ji, who decided to call the group The Apostles. After the tour The Apostles went down to Houston to rejoin some of the original band, a few of whom had been spirited off into Blue Aquarius. Soon afterwards four members decided that they wanted to play acoustic music and so split to form the Bliss Band.

Oh Perfect Lord You've given us all our hopes, our fears, this illusion of tears
And now with You take them with You
We will go for the essence
You gave us is what we must know
What we truly are
What we truly are
It is You
It is You

After running and wondering for so many lives
The key to eternity You're handing out freely
To all who are thirsty
Who can know the real meaning
Of how the lessons and pathways turning
Take us in
Take all of us in to our home
We've been searching
And longing to know

You alone have the means
You alone can bestow
The gift of salvation that everybody needs

Take us in
Take all of us in
To our home
To our home once again
To our home

Bolie Shri Satguru Dev Maharaj Ki Jai!

(words faded into mix

5. Double Song

Oh my dear sisters and brothers
Awake, awake and hear the call
The writing's on the wall
This world can surely fall
But love our Lord has come for us all
He's come as Satgurudev Maharaj Ji
And by His Grace we can be free
in the spirit we all want
We have often heard his sound
But now is the time to really know
That Name of God that makes it so
He is calling "Come to me, I'll give you peace
Give me your love, I'll give you peace."

My life was empty
Troubles have had me 'til You came along
Singing my heart's song
My Lord You've graced me to see
To see a light more brilliant than the sun
That shines for everyone within
Now all I can say is brothers will show the way to peace
This world is moving fast and in the end it cannot last for long
And when you're ready your Master comes to take you by the hand
To make you understand
Maharaji's asking just that you trust the spirit within
The source of everything that lives
Your soul is hungry for a love that knows no bounds of time
Maharaji is the one who's come to give this love divine

In the spirit we are one
We have often heard it sigh
(repeat)

But now is the time to really know
That Name of God that makes it so
He is calling "Come to me, I'll give you peace
Give me your love, I'll give you peace."

6. Father, I'm A Comin' Home

7. Subtle Prayer (Lyrics are a bit iffy)

Always and forever
We're one and the same
So how can we remember
That Holy Name

That gives us each breath
And the shelter where we may be
This we can see
It's our love to share
That comes in all that silent prayer
That ties us together and makes us aware

Maharaji You're the very One
Who gives the secret of the soul
It's a brilliant thought
It's a brilliant thought

We're never apart when we try to remember the Name, remember the Name
We're never alone cause that Name has never gone
And the sun in all is shining on
The sun in all is shining on
Above a world that loves
This loving God

8. Symphony Of Love

Someone is singing the opening phrases of a symphony
sung by 10,000 children
With laughing faces, everlasting melody
He embraces our harmony
It's so simple to see

Someone is painting the endless horizon and the glow of the sun
that is always shining within us all
Everlasting light for all
Children come and hear His call
He is giving us all

Maharaji is guarding the gateway to heaven
With the key in His hand
He is opening doors to the promised land
Now's the time to grab His hand
Just so that we can understand
Realise His perfect plan

9. Shining Grace

Mankind has reached his darkest time
Our Lord again brings Lilght Divine
And when the cry of man is heard
He saves them with His Holy Word

chorus:
Come on His children
We must rise together
Our Lord has come
And He's bringing us together
Our Lord has come
And He's bringing us together
Brothers and sisters let Him open your eyes
Open your eyes to shining, shining grace
You've got to feel it
Our Lord has come and he's come to reveal it
Shining, shining grace
You've got to feel it
Our Lord has come and he's come to reveal it

Maharaji's asking only love
To enter that kingdom above
A child knows only what he feels
So come and you'll know that it's real
chorus

Now is the time to understand
Our Lord and Saviour's in this land
Receive His Knowledge of the soul
You'll see eternity unfold

chorus

10. People, Listen to the Message of the Lord

People, listen to the message of the Lord
(repeat)

The Lord of radiance has come in child's form today
To the universe that are wandering astray
He open up His lovers' hearts to peace and harmony
And alleviates their worried minds
So they can all be free

So come and sing the praises of our universal Lord
Let Him bless you with His Knowledge
So your life will be restored
When all the sorried minds and unfilled dreams begin to fade
We'll surely see the splendour of Maharaji's sacred way
His love is freely given for His love is ours to share
So open up your weary hearts
Relieve your every care

In this age of darkness He has come to show the Light
To His family of blinded souls who wish to regain sight
Of what it is to be alive and what it is to see
The unity which binds all life and lasts eternally
His love is freely given for His love is ours to share
So open up your weary hearts
Relieve your every care
People, listen to the message of the Lord

The New Age sun it's finally come uniting everyone
And bringing forth His wisdom torch to light the age to come

7. Hey, Hey, the Father's Come

Behold the Father coming for His children
(something about a court of love, lyrics indecipherable)

8. Peeling the Mold
(live comedy song)

My friends we've all been told that we are beautiful
By all the far out people we have known
But in the darkened forest of our crazy searching mind
The weeds have become terrifically overgrown
Our beauty is a mystery within us
We try to bring in it out and sometimes we can
But Guru Maharaj Ji's here to clear the weeds away
And carry us back inside our native land
chorus:
He's only 15 years old
But He knows how to peel off the mould
His Knowledge makes life crystal clear
Rejoice our Lord now is here

Now some of you may think this song is silly
To eat drink and be merry may be your style
So you can go on living in this world of ups and downs
Never looking for anything more worthwhile
But the if you get tired of the patter
And if the essence still remains in your sights
Remember the promise that Maharaji makes
Come to me and I will show you light
chorus

He shows us God's infinite form
And He makes our hearts mushy (pronounced mooshy) and warm
He gives us His love without cost
And he watches our suffering get lost
Everybody sing
chorus

Bolie Shri Satgurudev Maharaji Ki Jai

9. Walking Cane
Oh hand me down my walking cane Oh hand me down my walking cane
Oh hand me down my walking cane
I'm gonna catch that midnight train
All my sins are taken away

If you want to go to heaven, Guru Maharaj Ji takes you there
If you want to go to heaven, Guru Maharaj Ji takes you there
If you want to go to heaven don't die in despair
Guru Maharaj Ji will take you there
All my sins are taken away

Oh I got drunk and put in gaol
Oh I got drunk and put in gaol
Oh I got drunk and put in gaol
Guru Maharaj Ji has paid my bail
All my sins are taken away

Oh I'm at peace at last you know
Cause Guru Maharaj Ji has me for His own
Every day I meditate
And I hope you're not too late
All my sins are taken away

11. King of Kings

We've been wandering through these crazy times
Looking for some peace of mind
Searching for a love that will never die
But the faith we put in selfish feelings
Always left us not believing
Living our existence as a lie.

Chorus:
But then the King of Kings
Has held out His hand
And is leading His children from every darkened land
To the universal light inside
And the Truth that we're all brothers and sisters
In the Holy Word of Light.

If you took all the wealth of ages,
All the knowledge from all the pages,
And brought them like a mountain to His feet,
The Love of Maharaj Ji
Would dim the brightest diamond
And make the sweetest poem seem incomplete.

(repeat chorus)

12. Spread this Knowledge

Spread this Knowledge to every land
To tell them our Lord Is here
Then they'll all come to His Lotus Feet
For their true selves to appear.

When confusion has gone from your mind,
And there's no shadow following you
You'll all know Satchitanand.
You'll know love is true.

And when the Golden Age Is here,
And there's no darkness on this earth,
Guru Maharaj Ji will smile everywhere
And you'll know love.

So spread this Knowledge to every land
To tell them our Lord Is here.
Then we'll all know Satchitanand,
And heaven will be here.

Jai Satchitanand.
Truth Is the consciousness of bliss.
Jai Satchitanand.
Truth Is the consciousness of bliss.
Yes it is. Yes It is. Yes It is. Yes It is.
All things must surely pass.
You soul inside it will always last.
We could never describe
The secret that is keeping you alive.
The kingdom of heaven is within.
We say that just because we have seen it.
Though all your friends might turn away,
Troubles surround you everyday,
Don't you worry, don't you cry.
There is peace lying right between your eyes.
Yes there is. Yes there is. Yes there is.
Right between your eyes.

BOLIE SATGURUDEV MAHARAJ KI JAI (Repeat, Fade Out)


The Creator Of All

The Creator of all, the Creator of soul
You are my all, You are my all
I am lost in wood, I wish you would
Save me from this material world.
Please save me, Lord,
You would and should.
My heart, my heart that pants to drink
The nectar of Thy flute.
Please grant me such a Grace that it may suit.
I place myself at Thy lotus feet
Oh, let it lie!
Or let the eagles eat.

Awake, Awake

In the satsang hall we swear
Listen to what the heart must say
We like blossoms open wide
Upon a peaceful meadow we abide
Some with precious agony
Like the sun's first rays upon the sea
Others are still as empty cradles
Love that spills from vessels

chorus:
Perfect harmony
Could that be the symphony
All, all awake my brothers anew
Born are we to make our lives come true

The joy it comes from winds that know no birth
As we settle for peace in heaven on the earth
In ??? we close our eyes
Beneath the reverence of the sighs
So we are lifted high above
Upon the Lotus Feet of love
We the candles lit with flame
We the blossoms of the Name
We prostrate ourselves to the Perfect One
Sacrifice our lives to the rising sun

chorus

Forever we praise the truth that made us free
Is our Lord my Guru Maharaj Ji
Guru Maharaj Ji, Guru Maharaj Ji, Guru Maharaj Ji, Guru Maharaj Ji

3. Balyogeshwar

Balyogeshwar's born to bring the lion to rest with the lamb
His children of mercy and love
They follow His gentle command
chorus:
Balyogeshwar comes to us
Today in the form of the Word
Close your thoughts and listen inside
The pleasures of silence are heard

Oh Balyogeshwar Your Name rings loud and true
You are the hope in this world
My Lord we are with You
Balyogeshwar's love is pure
Soft as the smile on your face
The child's love is innocent
Flowing fresh as the morning in grace
chorus

4. Oh Maharaji

chorus
Oh Maharaji You make the sunshine so brightly I can't help but smile
Oh Maharaji You make the wind blow to soothe me for a while

Hold me in Your arms again
And I feel my life returning
And breathe to me the lullaby
That keeps this world turning
chorus

Though there are so many times
That I know I don't deserve Your care
Still it is so comforting

To know that You are always there chorus

When Your children start to feel
There's no home in the world for them
That is when You take us in
And show us that we have a friend
chorus

5. That's What's Keeping Us Alive
this guy had listened to too much Incredible String Band)

chorus:
Guru Maharaj Ji's gonna bring all His children home
Back to that gentle place
Where the sun's from
Where we come from
Oh what Grace to be in such bliss

Satguru gives to us the holy light inside
It's that energy that's keeping us alive
That's what's keeping us alive

Satguru He gives to us the holy harmony
We're creatures of music
That I can see
That's what's keeping us alive

Satguru He gives to us the holy nectar
It's so sweet
That if you drink you'll never thirst
That's what's keeping us alive

Satguru He gives to us the holy Word of God
To say with your tongue is very, very hard
Impossible indeed

6. I Know My Lord

I know my Lord by the song in my ears
It sings to me all the day long
I know my Lord by the voice that I hear
Inviting so I never go wrong
And I know my Lord by the love in my heart
So strong that I know He will never depart
I know my Lord by the power of His Name
The shelter of the weak and the strong

I see my Lord in an aura of light
?? there to the stars
I see my Lord as the sun shining bright
When the door of my heart is ajar
And I see my Lord when His loved ones smile
Faith of a man but eyes of a child
I don't have to be where His body is near
His Grace can be seen afar

I feel my Lord as a tiny seed
That lies in a garden of stone
I feel my Lord as the sunshine is near
To help it to bloom and to grow

And I feel my Lord when His children sing
Praises to their gentle peace
I know by my Grace that my heart will be free
When my cup of joy overflows

8. All I Want To Say

All I really have to say
Is that I love You more each and every day
And all I really want to do
Is lose myself in love with You
Because I find when I'm feeling gloomy
You come to me
And the light that You are takes me so far away

And all I really want to know
Is Your sweet face that makes my life flow
And all I really want to hear
Is Your sweet Name that comes and makes my vision clear
And when I find I'm in Your company
I can see that life without You is no life at all

All I really have to say
Is that I love You more each and every day
And all I really want to do
Is lose myself in love with You
Because I find when I'm feeling sad and blue
And I come to You
The light of Your Grace
Puts a smile on my face

9. Lonely Son

Oh I see you're another one
A lonely son
Let's light up your day
Let's light up your way
Come and play with stars
You can know who you really are

Oh Maharaji my great king
Your song it sings inside of me
You know something I need Lord
I need something that You enjoy
Take my fears, all the darkened years
Peel them away from my heart
Got to shine through the dark

Spread Your wings like a dove
To the Lotus Feet of love

10. Land Of Light

There's a jewel that shines within each one of us
It makes us feel fine when we take the time to be children
Then it will show and we will know
We're in the land of light
And there's one Word that keeps all of us on the go
Something like love and it's always there for us to know
To take us back home
Back to the land of light

Open up your heart and close your eyes
Now it's time we realise
He has come to make us one
One in the land of light
And in His lap He caresses all our souls
Taking the parts He knows where to start in making us whole
And He will show that we're in the land of light

Close your eyes and open up your heart and we're to love
There is a way we can start
We will all know when we let go
That we're in the land of light

11. All Of A Sudden

All of a sudden I feel such mystery
Holding it's secrets I see the world in harmony
Every day now His Word is coming clear
I hold You in my dreams
Your soul is but a mirror
Reflecting all our longings to be One
The night is done
The day is begun

All of a sudden I feel such mystery
Holding it's secrets I see the world in harmony
The windows of my soul are open to the air
I feel soft breezes now of peace and gentle care
And I feel a longing to be One
The night is done
Don't you know the day is begun

All of a sudden I feel such mystery
Holding it's secrets I see the world in harmony
And I feel this longing to be One
The night is done
Don't you know the day is begun

12. Children's Song
When we become as little children
He will fill us up with joy
For He is the father and protector
Of each little girl and boy

chorus:
He is our Lord sent from heaven above
Father of wisdom and mother of love
Praise Him for He is the King of Kings
Come all of you children now dance and sing
Dance and sing, dance and sing
Praises to the King of Kings

Now in this age there is such confusion
No-one knows which way to turn
And so He has given us a light
That in the darkest night still burns
chorus

This opportunity to serve Him
Is most precious of all time
So don't waste a second
Run to Him and He will make you shine
chorus

Run to Him and sing for Him and dance for Him
And make Him smile
Meditate upon His face
He'll make you higher than a mile
chorus

13. Will You Follow Me

Oh my troubled friend
I see you walk alone
And crying to ???
Well the stars are out
You look out towards the trees
And you wonder where you go
It is crisp and clear
Do you really need to fear
Deep down I know you feel good
If you leave your friends
If you all life bid goodbye
I think you'd be surprised to see me

Ah but your life is so bright
Ah you just ask me for the sign
And you'll fly, you'll fly so high
You'll feel life's every sigh

Oh my miserable friend
I see you in the shadows
Thinking you are crazy
Well you are quite right
But don't let it hold you down
I hold the key to make you happy
I am happiness, I am ??? energy
I am all there is to guide you
I am informed today
I can help you see the way
All I ask is to serve you

Will you follow me?
Litle droplet in the sea?
Will you follow me?
repeat

15. The Essence Of Love

Turn your gaze round and round
All around God is found
From the windows such beauty you see
Only form God can this be
The beauty of living soul
Open your heart then you can feel
The magical flowing wind
Round and round within

chorus:
The essence of love/God we carry inside
Like a seed that's been sown
Now it's hidden from sight
Til you turn to the Lord
Shows you a light inside
He gives you a mirror
He makes it all clear

The age is coming round
Where all around you love is found
Take the hand of your neighbour and share
This Knowledge that God's everywhere
The beauty of giving free
Can only be done from a feeling of peace
From your heart to give to give
Is helping humanity live

Turn your gaze round and round
All around you God is found
Only open your magic guide
And turn your gaze deep inside
The beauty of living soul
This light you can see
This light you can feel
The magic of flowing sound
Turning your consciousness round and round
chorus

16. The Sun Is On The Mountain

Down at the harbour
On a misty morning
The early morning air is a promise
And the youthful fisherman
And his very best friends
Make their way down to the sea
And they take the nets
And they set the sails
And soon they leave for the blue horizon
But they turn their heads
And they look around
As if to hear a distant sound

chorus:
The sun is on the mountain
And the people they're coming round
Well the soul hears what the ears cannot
And the spirit sees what the eyes cannot

Now that they see amidst the rows
An old ??? man's smile what we're living for
Then beneath the cherry tree, a crimson cherry tree
He takes his hat and he takes his prayers
And he shook his head and he looks around
As if to hear a distant sound
chorus


Announcement: Um alright there's an important meeting of all Canadian National Staff, DUO Directors and DIC Directors in room 329 at the Travelodge Hotel after the program. If you've lost a child you can check at the First Aid tent. Now the Supernatural Family Band.

Inside - Supernatural Family Band

Thank you. Here's Charlene now to sing a song about the meditation.

As a little girl
This old world could be too much for me
So I turned about and shut it out
And travelled to the land of the free

chorus:
And I go inside to work my journey out
I take it inside and see what it's all about

Well later in life
I became a young wife with a beautiful family
But when you love a lot
You've got to get a lot of God's pure energy

chorus

Now some of you here
May not hear the words I'm trying to say
When you see the light and feel right
And listen to the music

And take it inside to work your journey out
Just go inside and see what it's all about


Milk and Honey

We like to play one we'd really like you to sing along with. It's called Milk and Honey and it was written by Monk Topping who's over there on the far left who used to be the General Secretary of Chile. And it's got a chorus everybody can sing very easily and have a great time singing and it goes:

Hail to You Master
Hail to You Father
Praise to Your Holy Name
And that You're coming along with us once again

Got that? Hah ha you'll pick it up

In the land of milk and honey
There's so much love it sure ain't funny
And the light that shines almost make you blind
And if your heart's just a little bit open
Some day we'll watch you be opened
And you won't have a worry, you won't have a care

And we say
Hail to You Master
Hail to You Father
Praise to Your Holy Name
And that you're coming to walk with us once again

If I were just a little bit stronger
I know I'd love you an awful lot longer
So make Your Holy Name strong like the sun
And in Your day Your love will take us higher
And every night we see You light a fire
And in the morning see You love everyone

chorus

chorus

In the land of milk and honey
There's so much love it sure ain't funny
And the light that shining everywhere
And if your heart's just a little bit open
Some day we'll watch you be opened
And you won't have a worry, you won't have a care

chorus
repeat chorus, acapella and general freak out

Oh Holy Light

chorus:
Oh Holy Light shining down on me
Oh Holy Light won't You please shining down on me
And in my darkest hour
Oh Lord won't You set me free?

I had a dream last night
That the angels came
And that they took my sorrow
And they flew them away
All the world was filled and the voices rang
Long live the King of the Universe and the Saviour of man

repeat chorus but freely

And then the Lord Himself
Wrapped in golden light
Outshone the burning sun
And dissolved the night
All the galaxies
Sang His Holy Name
And all of Creation
Lived in bliss again

chorus

Long live the King of the Universe and the Saviour of man
repeat


We have a watch that's moving rapidly getting close to the arrival to Guru Maharaj Ji We don't have Sulakshna to sing a song but we have someone who travelled with her from Santa Cruz. He's a blissful brother, his name is Rory Criss.


Papa's Got a Brand New Tune

Wo Papa's got a brand new tune
Wants everybody to play
Papa's got a brand new tune
Wants you to play
Cause Mama's in the kitchen cooking up a stew
Papa's in the living room telling everybody the truth

Mama said to Papa
Where have all the children gone?
Pap said to Mama
I guess they went to get it on

Do you believe in Papa?
When He sings His song
Do you believe in Papa?
Papa never does no wrong

You Are My Companion - Allen and Carole Thomas

You are my companion, you are my companion
You are the one to whom I come to
Whenever I want to see through myself
When you talk to me the sound around me has clarity
And the magic of your murmur is the inspiration of my melody

You are my companion, you are my companion
I know you are a blessing and your presence gives me strength
And you reveal to me the things I could never see
You arouse my soul awakening my sleeping spirit
Teaching me to be joyful here and now
Give light from me to the shifting shadows
Cause I'm guided by the gift of Maharaji

Sing along
You are my companion, you are my companion

You are my companion, you are my companion

I Love My Life
Well I love my life and I can live my love
Well I love my life and I can live my love

Time is passing me by on this long and lonely road
I've had several invitations to lay down my heavy load
But Your's is the only one that has appealed to my heart
The way that you have about you makes me want to make a new start
I've been through a lot of scenery and some of it was fine
Now I'm feeling so much joy to know that you're a friend of mine
And things I thought I knew 'til now don't matter anymore
Losing my uncertaintly suddenly I'm sure
That I love my life and I can live my love

Nights are dark and days are bright
I know that's true
But it doesn't matter to me
Cause my sun is inside You
It shines when you smile at me
It burns me when you sing
When you're here beside me
Makes me forget everything

But I love my life and I can live my love
