Next year we will sit on the porch and count migrating birds.
Children on vacation will play catch between the house and the fields.

You will yet see, you will yet see, how good it will be next year.
Red grapes will ripen till the evening, and will be served chilled to the table.
And languid winds will carry to the crossroads old newspapers and a cloud.
You will yet see, you will yet see, how good it will be next year.
Next year we will spread out our hands towards the radiant light.
A white heron like a light will spread her wings and within then the sun will rise.

You will yet see, you will yet see, how good it will be next year.

Staring at a stop sign
Watching people drive by
T Mac on the radio
Got so much on your mind
Nothing’s really going right
Looking for a ray of hope

Whatever it is you may be going through
I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you
You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds You
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Everybody’s been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Oh, you’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know

The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
Is living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There’s nothing He can’t do
He’s telling You

Music Therapy Helps the Dying

Relaxing, Touching the Memory, Music Helps With the Final Transition

Every week, three music therapists from MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care crisscross the city and suburbs to sing songs to the dying.

With guitars strapped to their backs, a flute or tambourine and a songbook jammed in their backpacks, they play music for more than 100 patients, in housing projects, in nursing homes and even in a lavish waterfront home.

The time for chemotherapy and radiation is over.

On Tuesdays in the Bronx, Yelena Zatulovsky, a music therapist, plays songs for Millicent Williams, 94, who came to the United States from Jamaica as a young girl, and now is dying of colon cancer.

The music begins: a song to hold death at bay, a song to embrace death, or to praise God. A Vietnam veteran asks for a song in Vietnamese. One man asked only for songs with death in…

Come on, come on yeah
I wanna tell you really
Oh yeah, all I know yeah
Hey

[Alicia:]
Hey baby how you doing tonight
I wanna let you know
I wanna tell you just how I feel
I wanna love you baby
And it’s going so right
I wanna burn a candle
Turn the darkness to the light

With the fire we make
It’s getting hotter and hotter
Like a moth to a flame
I can’t stay away
From the fire we make
It’s getting higher and higher
Like the night to the day
I can’t stay away
No no no… (yeah)… no
(Oh yeah)
No No… (yeah)… stay away

[Maxwell:]
Hey baby, won’t you tell me the truth
You wanna be the one
You can’t stay away
Oh, hey darling
Don’t you make no excuse
We can chase the sun
And burn the hole inside you

From the fire we make
It’s getting hotter and hotter
Like a moth to a flame
I can’t stay away
With the fire we make
It’s getting higher and higher
Like the night to the day
I can’t stay, I can’t stay away

[Alicia and Maxwell:]
This invisible pull; and it takes us to the stars
It’s getting higher and higher
It’s the fire we make (it’s the fire we make)
Getting sweeter and sweeter
Like a night to a day
(About to make up these flames)
I can’t stay away, say is, no no (yeah)
No no no, no no no, can’t stay away (baby can’t stay)
No no no (no you can’t)
No no no (baby baby baby)
No no no, yeah

I wanna tell you, I wanna love you
I just wanna stay with you
I can’t be done
I just can’t stay away
I wanna make some much fire with you baby
I wanna go, gonna go to you darling, ah
I say yeah yeah
