THE VERSES BELOW, which I write as a personal poem-mantra, HAVE A SIMILAR RHYTHM TO THE THEME IN THE NEW WORLD SYMPHONY,BY DVORAK--Going home, going home.
THE CHORUS RHYTHM IS SIMILAR TO AN OLD GOSPEL TUNE--Jesus keep me near the cross,
which is hymn #485 in the old United Church Hymnary.
============================================================================
1. I am one, in the Now, where I choose to be;
In the Now, evermore and eternity.
And eternity!

CHORUS
In the Now, in the Now,
Is my joy forever;
Not beyond some golden strand
Just beyond the river.

2. I am one, in the Now, not across some sea;
In the now and evermore, where all beings be.
Where all beings be!

CHORUS
In the Now, in the Now,
Is my joy forever;
Not beyond some golden strand
Just beyond the river.

3. In the Now, in the Now, I've the power to sin,
I can live by fear and lose, or by love and win.
Or by love, and win!

CHORUS
In the Now, in the Now,
Is my joy forever;
Not beyond some golden strand
Just beyond the river.

4. GOD is one, in the Now, one with land, sky, sea,
GOD is one, in the Now, One with you and me;
One with you and me!

CHORUS
In the Now, in the Now,
Is my joy forever;
Not beyond some golden strand
Just beyond the river.
