Let Me Live! by Milton L. Delgado

Milton Delgado has kindly given us permission to freely distribute his songs. Here is his pro-life song featured in a recent article about Milton. Use the link below to download this MP3. Pass on to others!

Let Me Live!

Is this what God would have you do: take away a life its right to live,
prevent a birth into the world when he has so much to love and give?

I know the sorrow you will feel. Oh choose the gift of life, not to destroy!
Hold me in your arms for just a while and soon your pain will turn to joy.

As a child we must enter the Kingdom of God. As a child God was worshiped and adored.
To the wise the wonders of heaven are concealed. But to the children the glory is revealed.

Did you not know that all my days were written in God's great master plan?
I was woven together from the depths of earth long before the world ever began.

As a child we must enter the Kingdom of God. As a child God was worshiped and adored.
To the wise the wonders of heaven are concealed. But to the children the glory is revealed.
Yes to the children the glory is revealed!

Lifting by Richard Schletty, David Gomez Sanz, Alberto Ayuso

7th Movement from the project Hungry For Heaven. More at http://www.hungryforheaven.com. Would you like to see this become a musical? If so, please comment.

Lifting
7th Movement, Hungry for Heaven

Raise me skyward in a torrent
Energize me with your current
I won't fall, I won't fail
Word poured from your holy grail

There's no doubt when you are guiding
You, my safety for the gliding
You, my hammer, stylus, bow
You, my style and my flow

Hungry For Heaven

I am everything with Christ
when my pride has been excised
Strongest shadow cast on Earth
comes from supernova birth

Acting our way
to a better way of thinking
Lifting us up
to a higher state of being

Now I vow to reach up higher
Never mind the pain or fire
Break the shackles, up from mire
I take you as my sire

Rolling flesh, cascading breath
birthing, laughing, crying, death
Bridging chasms, spanning souls
Don't let hope die in the shoals

Innocence destroyed in youth
Satisfied to be uncouth
Potential wasted in the hustle
Something broken in the tussle

Mighty tree with roots commingled
Some caressing, some all tangled
Roots and flowers, endless branching
Thorns that pierced now used for stanching

Master gardener sows the way
Rushing wind will prune decay
Hunger never so acute
Life eternal from good fruit

Lyrics (c)2007 Richard Schletty

SPANISH:

Duerme, niño, duerme
la noche es magica.
Duerme, niño, duerme
que tu madre te abraza.
Criatura, tan pequena,
Echado en tan simple cuna.
Duerme, niño, duerme.
Los angeles te guardan.

Duerme, niño, duerme.
Los angeles te cantan
Duerme, niño, duerme
bajo la luna de plata.
Reyes y pastores de muy allá
vienen al ver la estrella brillar.
Duerme, niño, duerme
Los angeles te guardan.

Nació_en lo_inmenso del tiempo, 
Espíritu_y carne_al momento
Alabemos al Rey de Reyes
Hijo del Dios de todos entes.
Aquí_en su portal,
nueva vida_inmortal.
Con ovejas en el pesebre.
En su paño de lana duerme.

Duerme, niño, duerme
bajo el cielo estrellado.
Duerme, niño, duerme
a la nana que María ha cantado.
Has venido a salvarnos a todos,
Pequeño Jesús, oh Dios,
Duerme, niño, duerme.
Duerme, niño, duerme.

ENGLISH:

Sleep, Baby, sleep 
on this magic night. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while Mother holds you tight. 
Little baby, so so small, 
lying in that humble stall. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels hum a tune. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the golden moon. 
Kings and shepherds see the star 
and come to visit from afar. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

Born in the fullness of time, 
Spirit and matter combine. 
Praise to the King of all kings, 
The Son of the God of all things. 
Here in this portal, 
new life immortal. 
In a manger with sheep 
in soft wool you sleep.

Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the starry sky. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
to Mary's lullaby. 
You have come to sa ve us all, 
little Jesus, so so small. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep.
Sleep, Baby, sleep.

Child of Eternal Love

[verse 1]
God, in glory, brings a star so bright.
A Son is born in a bed of barley hay.
Behold the Savior, our New Light,
Child of Eternal Love, Shepherd of the way.

[verse 2]
Mary, full of grace, will know the sorrow and the joy
of bringing forth the One Whom the prophets long foretold.
Joseph, by her side, will help raise up the Boy,
Child of Eternal Love, Flower to unfold.

[refrain]
Praise the Father of all creation
Praise the Son who conquers death
Praise the Spirit with jubilation
Grow God's love with every breath

[interlude]

[verse 3]
In the dark of night, in the winter chill,
We lift our prayers to the Trinity above.
Oh come, new Tree of Life, our hope fulfilled:
A Child of Promise of Eternal Love.

Sequence for Pentecost: Mode I (guitar and voice)

Sequence for Pentecost. Voice and 6-string nylon string guitar performed by Richard Schletty. Text: Sequence for Pentecost, 13th Century; translated by Peter Scagnelli, © 1983. Tune: Mode I; accompaniment by Adrian Engels, © Interkerkelijke Stichting voor het Kerklied.

There are two days on the church calendar (Easter and Pentecost) when the liturgy calls for a "sequence," a special hymn that may be sung or recited before the gospel. The sequence for Pentecost dates from the 12th century. This setting's text is an English translation by Peter Scagnelli. It is #981 in GIA's RitualSong hymnbook and #470 in GIA's Gather Comprehensive, Second Edition.

The song art is the center portion of a massive 50-foot-wide mural I painted for Holy Spirit Parish a few years ago. Details here: Grasped by the Holy Spirit mural

Sequence for Pentecost

Holy Spirit, Lord Divine,
Come, from heights of heav’n and shine.
Come with blessed radiance bright!

Come, O Father of the poor,
Come, whose treasured gifts endure.
Come, our heart’s unfailing light!

Of consolers, wisest, best,
And our souls’ most welcome guest,
Sweet refreshment, sweet repose.

In our labor rest most sweet,
Pleasant coolness in the heat,
Consolation in our woes.

Light most blessed, shine with grace
In our heart’s most secret place,
Fill your faithful through and through!

Left without your presence here,
Life itself would disappear,
Nothing thrives apart from you!

Cleanse our soiled hearts of sin,
Arid souls refresh within,
Wounded lives to health restore!

Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill,
Guide the wayward home once more!

On the faithful who are true
And profess their faith in you,
In your sev’n-fold gift descend!

Give us virtue’s sure reward,
Give us your salvation, Lord,
Give us joys that never end!

Wondrous Clay by Richard Schletty, Andre van Haren, Paul F. Page

Wondrous Clay

Lord of life, you love all souls.
By your touch we are made whole.
Sculptor of all time and space,
hold us in your warm embrace.

[refrain]
God, you watch creation toil.
God, you seed and water soil.
Guide us through another day.
Shape our lives in wondrous clay.

Often blind and so afraid.
Then your Word makes worries fade.
Healing Spirit, bring new light.
Illuminate our darkest night.

[refrain]

We journey with your risen Son
from mother's womb to valleys beyond.
Lead us to a vision so true,
through living waters that renew.

[refrain]
