Track Name: My Hand Moves
My Hand Moves
words and music: Terry Scott Taylor
©2018 Shape Of Air Music, BMI

I will catch up to you later
For now we’ll meet on the bridge of words
And as you ride Apollo’s chariot across the sky
I’ll be here to enflesh you again
And give you birth

My heart moves
My incarnational hand
My hand moves
The incarnational pen
The pen moves,
And I see you again

As a child I knew how to walk on water
And spy angels dancing in the dark
Help me to walk and see again through you now
And look for cosmos in chaos
Through songs, and books, and art

My heart moves
My incarnational hand
My hand moves
The incarnational pen
The pen moves
And I see you again

I will catch up to you later
Beneath the banner of an endless love
‘Till then I’ll give the mundane
Its beautiful due
And place vision over logic again because

My heart moves
My incarnational hand
My hand moves
The incarnational pen
The pen moves
And I see you again

My heart moves
My incarnational hand
My heart moves
My incarnational pen
The pen moves
And I see you again…
My hand moves
(and I see you again)
My hand moves
(and I see you again)
My hand moves
(and I see you again)…
Track Name: Holly Jolly Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas
words and music: Johnny Marks
arrangement: Terry Scott Taylor

Have a holly jolly Christmas
It’s the best time of the year
I don’t know if there’ll be snow
But have a cup of cheer
Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet
Ho ho the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me
Have a holly jolly Christmas
And in case you didn’t hear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas this year!
Track Name: My New Old Christmas Song
My New Old Christmas Song
words and music: Terry Scott Taylor
©2018 Shape Of Air Music, BMI

There’s nothing new to write about,
Nothing more to say
It’s all been said in other tunes
When it comes to Christmas Day
From “harken” angels to Rudolph’s nose,
The list goes on and on
So I’ll just use old references
For my old new Christmas song

New old Christmas song
My new old Christmas song
It’s a new title, ‘cuz I’ve recycled
The stuff I’ve based it on
New old Christmas song
My new old Christmas song
It may be trite, but it’s merry and bright
Here’s trees, and snow, and a Silent Night
You’ve heard it before, but it helps me write
My new old Christmas song

My song’s got toys, it’s got your bells
It’s got your blah blah blah
Here’s your Santa, and here’s your elves
Here’s your “deck the hall”
I’ll throw in sugarplums, a pie or two,
I’ll toss the yule-log on,
‘Cuz these old chestnuts are just the thing
For my old new Christmas song

chorus

Do “The Twelve Days Of Christmas” put you in
An agitated mood?
And does hearing songs about holiday treats
Make you sick from all that food?
If it’s “Joy To The World” you can take or leave,
And the Drummer Boy makes you yawn,
I’ll spruce ‘em up like I’m trimmin’ a tree
For my new old Christmas song

chorus
Track Name: Silver Bells
Silver Bells
words and music: Jay Livingston and Ray Evers
additional lyrics: Terry Scott Taylor

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner you’ll hear
Silver bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day
Strings of street lights, even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch
This is Santa’s big scene
And above all this bustle I hear
Silver bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day
It’s pretty cold outside and no doubt
A cardboard box on the street
Is no place for a man to spend Christmas
And when you’re down in a city trash-bin
Lookin’ for sumthin’ to eat,
You’re pretty sure old Santa ain’t comin’ this year
Silver Bells, silver bells
It’s Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day

Track Name: Silent Night
Silent Night, Holy Night
words: Joseph Mohr
music: Franz Xaver Gruber
arrangement: Terry Scott Taylor

Silent night, Holy night,
All is calm, All is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glorious stream from heaven above,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Savior, is born!
Christ the Savior, is born!
There below the star
The child is sleeping
Safe within the fold
Safe from rain and wind and cold
Silent, silent night
Holy, holy night
Sleep in peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
In peace
Silent night, Holy night,
Son of God, Love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
Track Name: Dusty Road- 2018
Dusty Road
words and music: Terry Scott Taylor
©1976 Shape of Air Music, BMI
Dusty road, toil and trouble
Seems I'm goin' down that way again
Now, dark and cold, hay and stubble
This world ain't my friend
So forget me not, oh, my Dear
When I kneel down and pray
Oh, Rock of my salvation, let me hide away
Narrow road, wide destruction
I'll enter by the Door
Win or lose, each must chose
I don't want to lose no more
So, hold on, Lord, when I feel it hurtin'
I know the pain won't stay
Oh, precious Jesus, Lord and Savior, let me hide away
Hide away in the secret chamber of Your love
Hide away in sweet solitude and rest
When I feel that ceiling falling all around me
Let me hide, oh, let me hide away
I'll take my cross and I'll carry on
Oh, even when my life, it seems to be all wrong
'Cause I know when those clouds roll on
I'll see the Son come shinin' through
Dusty road, toil and trouble
Seems I'm goin' down that way again
Now, dark and cold, hay and stubble
This world ain't my friend
So forget me not, oh, my Dear
When I kneel down and pray
Oh, Rock of my salvation, let me hide away
Hide away in the secret chamber of Your love
Hide away in sweet solitude and rest
When I feel that ceiling falling all around me
Let me hide, oh, let me hide away
