1. In This Night Of Darkness

Commentary

         The devotee intuitively knows this darkness is a gift from the Divine with hidden sublime blessings, and knows that only Divine Grace can lift the veil.

         Willing to wait for eternity for the coming of the Divine Oneness, yet in Maya still, the devotee calls for the comforting arms of the Divine Beloved until the Night is over and the Dawn of Realization is revealed.

Lyrics

In this Night of Darkness, I have lost my way
Will You come and hold me til the dawn of day

I love You, Lord, and in that thought I’ll be
Safe in that love until You rescue me
My Lord, My Lord

In this Night of Darkness, when all seems lost
Will You come to save me and melt devotion’s frost

I love You, Lord, that much I know is true
I love You, Lord, and I will wait for you
My Lord, My Lord

In this Night of Darkness, oh what blessings hide!
All the saints have known them; they’re hiding deep inside

I love You, Lord, and I am at Your Feet
I love You, Lord, for all eternity
My Lord, My Lord, My Lord, My Lord

2. Come Now

Commentary

         The Dark Night is cold and harsh; empty and lonely. Feeling the depth of separation, the devotee pleads with the Divine for the feeling of nearness and a solacing whispered assurance of That Love Divine.

Lyrics

My Lord, my Lord, my days are empty
Without the thought of Thee.
My Lord, My Lord, my nights are lonely,
If You’re not there to comfort me.
OM

Come now… Come now. And whisper sweetly,
Come let me feel Your love for me.
OM

My Lord, my Lord, I feel forsaken,
When I don’t feel You close to me.
OM
My Lord, my heart is aching
Come let me feel You near, embracing me.
OM

Come now…Come now… And whisper sweetly,
Come let me feel Your love for me.
OM

My Lord, my Lord, my eyes are sightless,
Until You are all they see.
OM
My Lord, Your Grace is priceless,
Come and give Your Light to me.
OM

Come now…Come now… And whisper sweetly,
Come let me feel Your love for me.
OM

My Lord, my Lord, There is no other,
You are all I want and need.
OM
My Lord, My Lord, my soul is calling
Come and dry these tears of love for Thee.
OM

Come now…Come now… And whisper sweetly,
Come let me feel Your love for me.
OM
Come now…Come now. Come now…Come now…

3. Could You Tell Me Now

Commentary

         In the simple, intimate plea of a child, the devotee asks if enough time in the Dark Night has passed….

Lyrics

Could You tell me now, could You show me how
Could You let me know how much You love me

Could You take my hand, help me understand
Could You let me know how much You love me

I am Your own and I need to know
I need to know how much You love me
I need to know how much You love me

Could You come to me, could You comfort me
Could You let me know how much You love me

Could You dry these tears, help me know You’re near
Could You tell me now how much You love me

I am Your own and I need to know
I need to know how much You love me
I need to know how much You love me

4. Don’t Let Me Go

Commentary

         Recognizing vulnerability to the delusive shafts of Maya, the devotee places all faith in the power of the Divine Beloved and seeks shelter in the Holy Arms.

Lyrics

Don’t let me go
Don’t let me stray, don’t let me look away
Oh Lord I pray
Hold me close, don’t let me go

Don’t let me wander, don’t let me forget Your sweet love
Hold me close; don’t let me go, Hold me close; don’t let me go

Don’t let me go
Don’t let me doubt, don’t let me go without
The thought of Thee
Hold me close, don’t let me go

Don’t let me wander, don’t let me forget Your sweet love
Hold me close; don’t let me go, Hold me close; don’t let me go

Don’t let me go
Don’t let me start to think that we’re apart
I need you so
Hold me close, don’t let me go

Don’t let me wander, don’t let me forget Your sweet love
Hold me close; don’t let me go, Hold me close; don’t let me go

Don’t let me wander; don’t let me forget
Don’t let me wander; don’t let me forget
Hold me close, don’t let me go
Hold me close, don’t let me go

I love You so, don’t let me go, I love You so
Hold me close, don’t let me go
Hold me close, don’t let me go

5. Hang On, Hold Tight

Commentary

         Confirming the presence of the Guru ( Dispeller of Darkness) the Divine begins to console the devotee: “My little one, just hang on to Me; I’ll take you Home; it’s only a dream. I’ve come as the Guru; let go of delusion; hang on to Me.”

Lyrics

Hang on. Hang on, hold tight. Hang on, hold tight.
The world’s not as it seems. Look to the Beam.

Hang on, My little one. Hang on, oh My little one.
I’ll take you Home on beams of Light
On wings of Love, rivers of Peace.
Hang on to Me.
I’ll take you Home. Hang on to Me.

Hang on. Hang on, hold tight. Hang on, hold tight.
There’s nothing to fear. Your Guru’s here.

Hang on. Hang on, hold tight. Hang on, hold tight.
Morning is neigh. Let go the night.

Hang on, My little one. Hang on, oh My little one.
I’ll take you Home on beams of Light
On wings of Love, rivers of Peace.
Hang on to Me. I’ll take you Home.
Hang on to Me.

Hang on. Hang on, hold tight. Hang on, hold tight.
Hang on. Hang on, hold tight. Hang on, hold tight.
Hang on. Hang on. Hang on.

6. Mother ‘s Lullaby

Commentary

         God in the aspect of Divine Mother now comforts the devotee-child. Coaxing the child to rest in Her arms, Mother promises peace and divine love,
and the strength to continue the worldly school-dream with Divine Remembrance and the knowledge that Home is just on the other side of Maya.

Lyrics

Come My Child and sleep in My Arms
Come forsake this dream of Maya
Come in deepest sleep
That I may hold you in My arms of Light

I’ll feed you nectar of Divine Love
I’ll bathe you in the deepest peace
And then you’ll remember Me
And then you’ll be awake in Me

Sleep, forget the world My dear
Sleep, and let Me hold you near

And when it’s time for you to dream another day
You’ll know your Home is not so far away
It’s just on the other side of Maya
Home is just on the other side of Maya

Sleep, forget the world My dear
Sleep, and let Me hold you near

And when it’s time for you to dream another day
You’ll know your Home is not so far away
It’s just on the other side of Maya
Home is just on the other side of Maya

Sleep, forget the world My dear
Sleep, and let Me hold you near

And then you’ll remember Me
And then you’ll be awake in Me

Sleep, forget the world My dear
Sleep, and let Me hold you near

7. The Dawn

Commentary

         The Grand, All-Knowing, Love Divine speaks to the Divine Child: “Don’t be afraid; The Dawn – your Realization – is coming soon.”

Lyrics

Don’t be afraid, The Dawn is coming
Don’t be afraid My child, for I am always with you
The Dawn is coming; The Dawn is near

And when you feel Me near
You’ll know I’ve always been here

And when you feel My love
You’ll know I’ve always loved you

The Dawn is coming; your time is near

The Dawn is coming; The Dawn is coming
The Dawn is coming; your time is near

And when you feel Me near
You’ll know I’ve always been here

And when you feel My love
You’ll know I’ve always loved you

Your time is coming; The Dawn is near

The Dawn is coming; The Dawn is coming
The Dawn is coming; your time is near
