The Beauty of All Things – Schletty and Gómez

MP3 Music Playlist: 

I was inspired by Fr. Maximilian to upload a song collaboration I did in 2006 with David Goméz Sanz (Segovia, Spain). 

The Beauty of All Things

Behold the beauty of all things,
the rocks, the plants and all beings;
a world conceived by a Maker
whose gift to you is the knowing.

Stop, now, and take a listen.
Look 'round and breathe it in.
Reach out and touch the Spirit.
Behold. Behold.

Behold the beauty of all things
whose names are carefully chosen
so that we might tell a friend
what we think's way outta sight.

Cold hard, the Winter's harshness.
Wet scent, the Springtime's freshness.
Warm soft, the touch of your flesh
on a sweet Summer's eve.

I have this chance now to live!
I'm on a journey from darkness to light.
My best regard goes to the Maker
of all that we are, all we can be.

Behold the beauty of all things,
the rocks, the plants and all beings;
a world conceived by a Maker
whose gift to you is the knowing.

This song is the title track from an album Dave and I did called "The Beauty of All Things". Here is the album description:

The Beauty of All Things is an album of poetic expressions revolving around being, loving and faithfulness. Faithfulness to loved ones as well as faithfulness to the Creator and creation. Some of the songs celebrate life. Some deal with existential awareness and mortal decay. Others are ripe in spiritual hope. The collection even includes a hybrid disco-rock song that will soothe and excite at the same time. Richard Schletty and David Gómez Sanz team up to bring you the best they have to offer in introspective instrumention and rich vocal talent. These songs are carefully woven. We hope you enjoy them.
