FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life
When I was suffering from anguish, sorrow, or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, "You promised me, Lord,
That if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
There have only been one set of prints in the sand.
Why, When I have needed you most, you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
Is when I carried you."
All Angels don't live
In God's Heavenly home
Some Angels walk on earth_
God assigned them here
To help his earthly children.
All we have to do is ask
From deep inside our hearts
One of God's Earth Angels
Will enter our minds
And help us decide
Which decisions we make
Are right or wrong.
So always remember__
If your troubles grow heavy
Your shoulders are bending low
Just close your eyes and listen
An Earth Angel might be there
To lift your burdens away_
God loves each one of us
I know this to be true_
Because Jesus Our Savior
told us so..

We Are Urban Indians
As an Indian I sing this song for you
Who feel like you're on your own
The Indians in cities may be very few
But I'm telling you, you're not alone
There are those of us who'd like to be
With a lot of others of our kind
And if nothing else, we'd like to see
Other Indians, 'cause we're hard to find!
We are Urban Indians
Far away from our tribal land
And as Urban Indians
We should form our very own inter-tribal band
Of urbanized Native Americans
Beautiful Gypsy girl
Please don`t go
Beautiful gypsy girl why do you roam
Please stay and give your heart to me
How much I love you can't you see?
When the wind blows please don't go
Because if you leave I'll be sad and cry
But if you must go please tell me why.
Beautiful gypsy girl don't break my heart
Please don't travel with the winds far away
Can't you see how much I want you to stay?
Beautiful gypsy girl...Please don't go.

In the heart of a dear
little seed burried deep
so deep A dear little
plant lies fast asleep
Awake said the sunshine,
Creep to the light
Awake said the voice
of the raindrops bright
The little plant rose to see
what the wonderful outside
world might be....
You can`t see the moment, but you can feel it.
You can feel the windblow, and you know its there...
but your eyes can`t see it.
The soul is made for you to be,
dont lose it...
