Red Balloon
Give me a red balloon on a long black string,
I'll be richer than any king.
With my red balloon on a long black string,
I can whistle and I can sing.

 

Chorus:
Laughs are many and tears are few.
Life's exciting and always new.
In a world of girls and boys,
In a world of simple joys.

 

Give me a paper kite on a windy day,
Oh I think I'll fly away.
With my paper kite on a windy day,
Yes, I think I'll fly away.

 

Give me a warm spring day and an apple tree,
There is nothing that I can't see.
When I look out from my apple tree,
Look up there and you'll see me.

 

Rise and Shine
Rise and shine and give God his glory, glory,
Rise and shine and give God his glory, glory,
Rise and shine and * give God his glory, glory,
Children of the Lord.

Rise Up O'Flame
Rise up o'flame
By thy lights glowing.
Show to us beauty,
Visions and joy.

 

River Grace
We thank thee for the river
And for the sky above
And for this great, green land of ours
And for our father's love

 

Rose
Rose, rose, rose, rose,
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will, sire
At thy will.

 

Ding, dong, ding, dong
Wedding bells on an April morn.
Carve your name on a moss covered stone,
On a moss covered stone.

 

Ah poor bird,
Take thy flight,
High above the sorrows of this dark night.

 

(Also very good as a round)

 

The Rose

(Better Midler)
Some say love it is a river that drowns the tender reed,
Some say love it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed,
Some say love it is a hunger, an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower and you its only seed.

 

It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance,
It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes a chance,
It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give.
And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.

 

When the night has been to lonely and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember that in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose.
