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)…

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

Silver Bells 03:29
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

Silent Night 04:05
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.

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
