All Satguru's little children must be

Chorus..
All Satguru's little children must be
Shining like dew-drops on the leaves of a tree Reflecting His love so perfectly
That the rest of the world can see His majesty Yes the rest of the world can see His majesty
So's we can achieve this without consternation
We must ensure we don't neglect our meditation
Then we will find that His magic radiation
Will stream through our bodies to the rest of the nation
Yes will stream through our bodies to the rest of the nation
Chorus
The best way to help our sweet Lord with His plans Is to forget all our own and obey His commands Do service all day and all night if you can
And soon you will stand in the palm of His hand Yes soon we'll all stand in the palm of His hand

Lover for all time

He cast a shadow dark and deep To wake me from my deepest sleep I'd turned the light to darkest night From slumbered dreams I'll rise To gaze into His eyes
And find myself in love
Monuments to wise men past
Are built like memories to last
But He is everlasting Holy Word
And will outlive these men of stone and of mortar
He is at peace when all else fails
To try to describe Him is to be defeated
For words can only be repeated Within His heart all love is seated To bow before Him is life completed He is my lover for all time
Chorus
7

The love is here and now

Morning begins the days and follows the night
There's times that you feel so bad,
and times you know you feel alright
Maybe you wish tomorrow would be a brand new day
But when it comes around it's just the same old story
And life just slips away – life just slips away
The love is here and now
The past is dead and gone
The love is here and now surrender to the One
The love is here and now
Surrender to the One
Everybody in the world is heading for one destination
Drops of rain fall in the river, rushing to the ocean
People flow together, listen to the call
But there's only one way we're gonna live as brothers
That's when we know the Father of all
When we know the Father of all
Maharaj Ji's here and now
He'll give you lovin' peace
To be at His Feet is such sweet release
To be at His Feet is such sweet release
The devil mind comes to take you where
you are not meant to go
And he will try to lead you on
and let your conscience go
Remember what you do will always come right back on you
So use your time in doing selfless action
And realize what's true – realize what's true
Be in the here and now
Surrender to the Word
Maharaj Ji showed us how
His love can save the world
Maharaj Ji showed us how
His love's gonna save the world

Love of all the ages
Before the first time I saw you
many of my days were black as night
Since I learned to adore you I have seen
the pure white Light
My mind no longer resembles a restless tiger in a cage
For you have calmed down my emotions,
cooled my anger, spent my rage
And I see you every time I close my eyes
You permeate creation in your everything disguise
Chorus 7:
Oh my love of all the ages
Eternal cooler of all rages
You write the book, you turn the pages
You are the way, you are the way
Chorus 2:
Oh my saviour of all saviours
The resting place from all our labours
You are Dharma, nectar's flavour
You are the way
Nothing could be sweeter than you
And there's nothing to do but what you want us to do
repeat Chorus 2

The Way
Are you here – are you here today? Have you gone – have you turned away? Are you gonna find the way? Are you gonna find the way? Home – it's where you belong Won't you come on home
Chorus (repeat 2x):
And I said – Guru Maharaj Ji's got the way
Guru Maharaj Ji is the way
And He's gonna take us back
Yes He's gonna take us back
Home – it's where we belong
Won't you come on home
When the truth is spoken everywhere
And the lonely people – they are aware Then we're gonna find the way Yes we're gonna find the way Home – it's where we belong Won't you come on home
Chorus (repeat 2x)
When the Word is spoken everywhere
And the foolish people – they are aware Then we're gonna find the way Yes we're gonna find the way Home – it's where we belong Won't you come on home
Chorus (repeat l

How many lifetimes old are we
How many lifetimes old are we
None we can remember
But evolution has its reason
Buried in us all
But we could only see a thing if it was ten feet tall
Then He showed me a lot of things
I thought I'd never understand
He showed me a lot of things
I thought I'd never understand
I'd like to thank Maharaj Ji
Thank Maharaj Ji, thank Maharaj Ji
Thank Him anyway that I can
How many times have you stared in the night
And felt just a little bit small
But the way we live and act in the world
You'd think we owned it all
Now a change is coming and it won't take long
Maharaj Ji's love is coming on strong
We're getting higher, higher every day
Higher, higher in every way
We've got to thank Maharaj Ji
Thank Maharaj Ji, thank Maharaj Ji
Thank Him any way that we can
Anything you want in life can be yours
From beauty to great power
But within you lies the priceless pearl
The seed within the flower
You must decide if you want the key
That opens the door to eternity
Go to Maharaj J , Maharaj Ji holds the key
Maharaj Ji and He'll give it to you for free
Thank Maharaj Ji, thank Maharaj Ji
Thank Maharaj Ji, thank Him any way that we can

To understand the power that's keeping you alive
You must know His name if you want to survive

Oh Satguru
Oh Satguru, there's nothing left for me to do
Just to lose my mind and fall in love with you

Lila
He is our own Satguru
And we should love Him
He is brighter than a thousand seas
Shining in the sun
He is pure and fresh
As the early morning dew
I'd wish I was a little bird
Flying high in every tree
But then how would I see
Guru Maharaj Ji
He is lila, lila
And His game has just begun
I'd wish I was a little stream
lowing down to the sea
But then how would I see
Guru Maharaj Ji
He is lila, lila
And His game has just begun
For we are all little streams
Flowing down to His ocean
And all He asks from us
Is love and pure devotion
He is lila, lila
And His game has just begun
He is our own Satguru
And we should love Him
He is brighter than a thousand seas
Shining in the sun
He is pure and fresh
As the early morning dew

Sweet chariot
I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels, coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

If you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends I'm coming home too
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Coming for to carry me home

Straight and narrow
Now we're on the road, it's the straight and narrow
It's the path that leads to the supreme goal
Chuck your weary load of worldly sorrows
Into the endless ocean of the supreme soul
Chorus:
Balyogeshwar, Maharaj Ji
Supreme Source of the cosmic sea
With His boundless Grace and divine compassion
He's giving to every soul
The Truth that will set them free
So walk His path, it's the straight and narrow
It's the only path you can walk along
Every step is lit by the Master's footprints
And His Grace will guide you till your journey's done
Chorus
In the Word of God, everlasting vibration
It's the one and only eternal thing
I will travel on, to my destination
The Lotus Feet of Maharaj Ji, He's the King of Kings
Chorus
23

At the feet of the Master
Waiting the Word of the Master
Watching the hidden Light
Listening to catch His orders
In the very midst of the fight
Listening to catch His orders
In the very midst of the fight
Seeing His slightest signal
Across the heads of the throng
Hearing His faintest whisper
Above earth's loudest song
Hearing His faintest whisper
Above earth's loudest song
At the feet of the Master
You can really let it go, let it flow
'Cos we're all love, we're all love
We're all love, we're all love
We're all love, we're all love
Love, love, love; love, love, love
We're all love, love, love by His Grace
repeat first verse
At the feet of the Master
We can really let it flow, let it grow
'Cos we're all love, we're all love
We're all love, we're all love
We're all love, we're all love, love, love
Love, love, love; we're all love, love, love
By His Grace

"At the Feet of the Master" by J. Krishnamurti

You are my only Light
Guru Maharaj Ji
You are my only Light
You gave me direction
The way is clear and bright
And I love You, I love You
I love You, my Lord
You showed me the secret
Hidden deep within
Brighter than a million suns
How can I begin
To thank you, to thank you
To thank you, my Lord
25

God is love
Chorus:
God is love and love is God
God is Truth, Truth is peace
And we could do with some today
Love is God and God is love
Love is Truth, Truth is peace
And our Lord can show us the way
Bholay Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki Jai
He's the living Lord today
Bholay Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki Jai
He's the living Lord today
But the real you and I
We are a spark of God's own fire
God who is almighty is in me and you
And because of that
There is nothing that we cannot do
But can you say that you've really been trying
To bring that peace and Truth into your life
Shri Maharaj Ji He's revealing the Knowledge
That can lead us from the darkness to the Light
Yes – He can lead us from the darkness to the Light
Repeat chorus and fade out on
Bholay Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki Jai,
He's the living Lord today

Hand me down my 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
Chorus:
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
Well, 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
I got drunk and put in jail
I got drunk and put in jail
I got drunk and put in jail
Guru Maharaj Ji paid my bail
And all my sins are taken away
Chorus
Oh, I'm at peace, at last you know
Because Guru Maharaj Ji has me for His own
Everyday I meditate, and I hope you're not too late
All my sins are taken away
Chorus
27

Satguru has come
See the signs of the times
There's a fire that's burning
In the heart of every man
And our garden home has grown into a prison
Open your eyes and realize
That the wheel of life is turning
And the age is here
When our fear must change to Knowledge

Chorus:
Satguru has come
It's freedom, freedom
All mankind will be as one
To show us love is all, all is love
He has come

Walk the city streets
There's a siren sounding
On a day of violent warning
We've become the salve of what we made to serve us
If you criticise and think it's all lies
The wind of truth is pounding
And ideas and crazy notions won't preserve us

Chorus

Feel a change in the air
There's a moving river
And the waves are high and strong
The water's deep with a longing for the ocean
It's going to flood its shores
Till we can see no more
Of the thoughts that come between us
Drown our pain
Make us whole again with devotion
Chorus
28

Ton of diamond rings
Guru Maharaj Ji, you're the only one
You glow like the moon and shine like the sun
You showed me to be happy
Which no-one ever done before

Guru Maharaj Ji, you're made out of gold
You're both hot and you're cold
You told me some truth
Which no-one ever told before

All of my life I spent looking for someone
Who could tell me the truth
But you're the only one, in spite of your youth
To answer the question
Of what is and is not real – I feel

Guru Maharaj Ji, you're the King of Kings
Worth a million Rolls Royces
And a ton of diamond rings
You showed me how
I can live without all these things
It's Guru Maharaj Ji, Maharaj Ji
29

Rock me Maharaj Ji
Everything was dark at first, things had gone from bad to worse
The Lord of the universe came down to show the way
Once I was a little child, but maya made my mind run wild
Then Guru Maharaj Ji smiled, and night time turned to day
"I will give you peace", He said, and at His Feet I laid my head
Oh rock me Maharaj Ji and roll me tonight

Give Him all your cares and fears, give Him all your worldly tears
Everyone who comes and hears receives the Holy Name
Creatures of the earth or sky, all the things that swim or fly
There's no need to question why, to Him we're all the same
Living in Satguru's Word, I am yours my only Lord
So rock me Maharaj Ji

Turn the music high, fill me full of light
With my second birth I have second sight
Balyogeshwar Param Sant Ji MaharaJ is love
So rock me Maharaj Ji
30

Lord you made me feel the sunrise
Lord you made me feel the sunrise
And a love so fine will grow and flow
Lord you came in at the right time
And you took my soul and set it free
Lord you've given me the true Light
And your Word divine is my sunshine
Lord you made me feel so
And my love for you will never die
Mid 8:
Oooo that the kingdom of love can exist
Repeat verse 2 String solo
Mid 8
Repeat verse 2

Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
I was blind but now I see

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
I was blind but now I see

It was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace my fears relieved
Most precious day that Grace appeared
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come
It was Grace that brought us safe this far
And Grace will lead us home

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We'll spend our days to sing His praise
And now we have begun

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
I was blind but now I see
32

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 self to appear

When confusion has gone from your mind
And there's no shadow following you
You'll all know Sat Chit Anand
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 Sat Chit Anand
And heaven will be here

Holy Family 33

Know Him while you can
Oooo Bop Bop Bop Bedada
Oooo Bop Bop Bop Bedada
Oooo Bop Bop Bop Bedada
If you're feeling like you want to lie down
But there's nowhere you can only turn around
There's a Father to be found
And He's spreading His love-light all around
Chorus:
Oooo Bop Bop Bop Bedada
Oooo Bop Bop Bop Bedada
Know Him while you can
Know Him while you can
Know Him while you can
Before time will run you down
You've got to turn around
You may have fishes, gardens and trees
Lovely ladies, flash Mercedes for your ease
Still there's something missing with all these
'Cause the Lord is here and only He can please
Chorus
Lifetimes, lifetimes of travelling
Now we have the chance to begin
Begin to come inside
His arms are open wide
Chorus
Repeat first verse
34

World's brightest jewel
The world's brightest jewel
Is lying right between the eyes
And the magic voice of silence
Only helps you to realize
All the dreams of this planet
Are as a nightingale that flies
And nestles by the Feet of Maharaj Ji
All your prize possessions
Are going to crumble into sand
Like the desert beach or ocean
Dried and trickling from your hand
Eternal breakers billow forth
And wear away the land
Time never will catch up with Maharaj Ji
Chorus:
Then the Perfect Master comes and leads you home
To the perfect consciousness that surrounds His throne
Shows you in His mirror of love that you were never alone
And you never were alone with Maharaj Ji
Set your sails to catch the force
That drives the cosmic wind
And ever flowing onward
Let infinity be your friend
Immediately you reach the point
Beginning has no end
Except Satyuga's Master, Maharaj Ji
Give unto Caesar
All that Caesar wants to own
For Caesar's time is finite
And is quickly overflown
All the petty men of power
By the cosmic wind are blown
Which doesn't part the hair of Maharaj
Chorus – Repeat first verse
35

Know the noun
Heaven is falling, falling, falling
Heaven is falling to earth
For once again God has taken holy birth
He is gently bringing, sweetly singing
Love now, for everyone
He is the Father
Come to save all His children
Chorus:
And when you take His Holy Knowledge
You'll know the noun
Know the noun
That is His Name
And not just the adjective
Guru Maharaj
There's a pool of Light, deep within
Hidden in a beautiful garden bright
And sweet music, sweet music plays all day
We can go and rest there
Always stay there
Returning to our true home
And we'll never, never be alone
He loves us so
Chorus
Does the running river
Really know why
Nor the stars spinning in the sky
Does the swan, sailing along
Does he know, no
There is only one
The Perfect One
Who'll gently lead us to that place
And we love Him, love Him
For His Grace
Chorus
