Mighty Quinn

Bob Dylan

Everybody’s building ships and boats
Some are building monuments, otters are jotting down notes
Everybody is in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody’s going to jump for joy

Come on without, come on within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

I like to go just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping hills and making haste just ain’t my cup of tea
Everybody’s beneath the trees a-feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons are going to run to him

Come on without, come on within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

Let me do what I want to do, I can’t decide at all
Just tell me where to put them and I’ll tell you who to call
Nobody’s going to get no sleep on everybody’s toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody’s going to want to doze

Come on without, come on within
You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn

God Is Light

Ingemar Olsson

Clouds may cover the sky
And hide the sunshine away
But though at times it is hard to see
The sun is there anyway

The light that shines in the darkness
Will never weaken at all
It brightens up every step you’re taking
So you won’t stumble and fall

God is light
And in him there is no darkness
God is light

The light reveals every secret
This might sound frightening to some
Who prefer to remain in darkness
Rather that letting truth come

But if we walk in the light
Our fellowship will increase
We’ll see ourselves and each other brighter
And every coldness must cease

God is light …

The One and Only You

Ingemar Olsson

Right in the crowd of people you’ll find them one by one
After a long, long time you’ve still only just begun
No matter whom you’ll strike
Nobody will be like
The one and only you

Nowhere in this whole world is anyone just like you
If you believe you’re no one special, it just ain’t true
You’ve got your own profile
Who’s got that certain style?
The one and only you

No one is like you, my friend
You are quite unique
Peculiar, so to speak
And God’s intentions are very special
For you and your life

Each single person has an own personality
No one can ever steal away your identity
Check it out and you’ll find
You are one of a kind
The one and only you

Questions

Cliff Richard

How to start, what to say
I don’t remember ever feeling this way
Can it be true, does anybody care
Is it only make-believe or are you really there

Is there a chance I’ve been missing the best
Could it be life is more than a guess
I’m afraid to let go, yet I long to see
If you are real, be real to me

OK, if I were to come to you
Not saying I will, but just supposing I’d do
Would I have to be just another guy
Two a penny’s not for me, it just won’t satisfy

I’m just confused by candles and prayers
But I’d like to know if you are there
Show me the way, for I long to see
If you are real, be real to me

Well and Alive

Ingemar Olsson

Doors were locked about them
These eleven men
Never were their lives to be the same again
Missing was their leader
They had seen him die
But suddenly he stood there
Well and alive

He told them Take it easy. Don’t have any fear
Death has now been conquered, you see me, I am here
When no one had suspected that he would arrive
Suddenly he stood there
Well and alive

Love, and love alone, is so invincible
Love, and love alone, so irresistible
Love, and love alone, so unpredictable
Well and alive

Go out and tell the people all around the world
Everything that’s happened, what you’ve seen and heard
Whatever you’ll run into, just remember I’ve
Promised to be with you
Well and alive

Love, and love alone, is so invincible …

No one neither nothing
Many neither few
Can ever separate you from me, nor me from you
Where two of you are gathered, or three or four or five
I will be among you
Well and alive

Love, and love alone, is so invincible …

Living Close

Ingemar Olsson

I want to spend my lifetime
Close to everyone
More and more I want to learn that I’m
In a family where ever I may run
Therefore, Jesus,
What I want to do
Is to be, where ever I’m going
Living close to you

I want to spend my lifetime
Close to everyone
Cry together with those who have a hard time
Laugh together with people having fun
Always fighting evil
Where it’s shining through
Jesus use me
You know how well it suits me
Living close to you

I want to spend my lifetime
Close to everyone
Showing love to all and everybody
On the earth, beneath the same old sun
But everyone’s too many
At least for me, that’s true
The only way, since you know everybody
Is living close to you

If You Think About It

Ingemar Olsson

I threw out some clothes the other day
Despite the fact they fit
Why I did is hard to say
*Cause if you think about it
We have got so much we don’t care about
It doesn’t seem fair
When there are people living in the world
Who’ve never had enough to wear

If you think about it

Then I went to the restaurant, hungry as I could be
A salad, a steak and a peice of pie just wasn’t enough for me
When I’d eaten until I was almost sick and nearly out of breath
I felt even worse when I thought about
All the people who’ve starved to death

We’ve got it all, if you think about it
Will be our fall, if you think about it
Silence is a crime, no doubt about it
Now is the time for us to do something about it

”If you think about it”, I told myself,
”See things as they are
We can’t let it go much further now,
It’s already gone too far
We want so much we don’t really need
It’s time for us to share
…but on the other hand, that’s not the way to become a millionaire”

If you think about it …

A Happy New Year

Ingemar Olsson

One time a year everybody’s wondering
about the new year, what will it bring
Will it bring us sorrow, will it bring us happiness
Will it be a good year, or will it be a mess

Happy New Year in every land
Happy New Year for everyone
I do believe, and that is clear,
that a year with Jesus is a happy year

Another year when children will be born
into this world, to maybe weep and mourn
as innocent victims of poverty and war
Let’s get together in fighting for
a Happy New Year …

We’re watting for this kingdom soon to come
where God is papa and Jesus king
When thios old world will be forever young
and the whole creation will join and sing:
Happy New Year …

You Are My Life

Ingemar Olsson

I have dreamed of a secret someone
deep inside of me
Now I gradually see that dream
turn into reality
You are my life, that’s what you mean to me
You are my life

Without you all I do is end up
never knowing where to begin
Just like trying to catch a sunbeam
or striving after the wind
You are my life, just like it ought to be
You are my life

By now I know it’s for certain
My dream was true
My life is more than existing
Life is really you

I can see what my life would lead to
if I had to live on my own
I can tell by the way I need you
that I would never make it alone
You are my life
You are my life

Jesusextremist

Ingemar Olsson

Every single fact, every bit of news
Gets interpretations and points of views
One is saying this, the other saying that
Everybody thinking he is where it’s at
I was disappointed on the left side
Disappointed on the right side
But then I found what I missed
Now I’m a Jesusextremist

Jesus’ got the power in heaven and on earth
That is what we’re saying and that’s what he’s worth
All that’s ever been, everything that is
More or less depends upon this plan of his
And just to know him is to love him
He’s worth all you’ve got to give him
You will become an optimist
Jesusextremist

Let us all agree to get the new around
That we can change the world with the means I’ve found
Liberate your soul, let him make it whole
Peacefully resisting evil is our role
Overthrowing evil powers
With this love of ours
And that’s to be an activist
Jesusextremist

If not him, then whom?
If not now, then when?

No Matter What

Ingemar Olsson

There may be people thinking that it’s hard enough
To believe in love when life itself is so rough
But if you take your time to really look around
In spite of everything, I know that love can be found

No matter what
It’s there no matter what
No matter what
It’s there no matter what

When you have found the love that only God can give
You have found the source of life and reason to live
If others disapprove or really don’t see how
Doesn’t change a thing, cause Jesus lives anyhow

No matter what
He lives no matter what
No matter what
He lives no matter what

If you’re a doubting person, not at all naive
Or think that God exists for only those who believe
There is no reason worrying or feeling tense
Cause it’s not at all on you or me it depends

No matter what
He lives no matter what
No matter what
He lives no matter what

When We Get Together

Ingemar Olsson

When we get together
Together in the Lord
Everything that happens
Is with one accord

Yes we all have a good time
All have a good time When we
Get together in the Lord

Everybody present
Has something to share
Someone has a message
Someone leads in prayer
Yes we all have a good time …

Someone shares a vision
Someone prophesies
Someone else with wisdom
Teaches something wise
Yes we all have a good time …

Someone playes the guitar
Someone sings a song
Someone is translating
When someone speaks in tongues
Yes we all have a good time …

When we get together
Together in the Lord
Everything that happens
Is with one accord
Yes we all have a good time …

Yes we all have a good time
All have a good time When we
Get together, get together
Get together in the Lord
