How did your journey start? When Mary's baby cried No one slept when Christ was born Will the angels sing this year If you would hear the angels sing Clear out the cluttered heart The Most Convincing Angels How do you spell the word? A Different Light Descends How many times we start again Jesus never stayed the same All things of dust to dust return Rising water always flowing Too often, God, your name is used Let your Spirit blow as wind Let wonder be reborn Let wonder be reborn Have you not known?
