Happy New Year from the Lindsays!

We're in Ireland at the moment... but allow us to share the lyrics to one of our very favorite songs that Steve sings. These lyrics come courtesy of Sean Tyrell. The most important message of the Christmas and New Year season is the hope for renewal that the new year brings… As the days get longer, let the light of the new year bring us hope, friendship, and love.


The Rising of the Moon

As we wander through the universe, on this dark winters night
The children they’re all dancing and the stars are shining bright
One more word must now be spoken, or sung to an old tune
Lets all dance the dance of freedom at the rising of the moon

So we gaze unto the stars that shine with wonder in our eyes
Will we just destroy the planet, or is peace to be the price?
Cause the wall of fighting nations dims the beauty of the tune
Let’s all dance the dance of freedom at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon at the rising of the moon
Let’s be friends this new year coming at the rising of the moon

May the wisdom of the ancients with their messages and signs
Come to shine on our tomorrows with the magic of their time
Like a star that shone on the wisemen, like the dawn that’s coming soon
It’s the truth that guides us onwards at the rising of the moon

We can live within gods garden if we tend her with our care
We can understand the meaning and the motives of the fair
Though we stumble through the darkness, trying far too much too soon
Let’s all stand up and be counted at the rising of the moon

At the rising of the moon at the rising of the moon
Let’s all stand up and be counted at the rising of the moon
