  1. Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee
    close

    Jubilate Adoramus

    Joyful joyful we adore thee
    God of glory Lord of love
    Hearts unfold like flowers before thee
    opening to the sun above
    Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
    drive the dark of doubt away
    Giver of immortal gladness
    fill us with the light of day

    All thy works with joy surround thee
    earth and heaven reflect thy rays
    Stars and angels sing around thee
    centre of unbroken praise
    Field and forest vale and mountain
    flowery meadow flashing sea,
    Singing bird and flowing fountain
    call us to rejoice in thee

    Thou art giving and forgiving
    ever blessing ever blest
    well spring of the joy of living
    ocean depth of happy rest
    Thou our father Christ our brother
    all who live in love are thine
    Teach us how to love each other
    lift us to the joy divine

  2. How Can I Keep From Singing
    close

    My life flows on in endless song
    above earth’s lamentation
    I hear the real though far-off hymn
    that hails a new creation
    No storm can shake my inmost calm
    while to that rock I’m clinging
    It sounds an echo in my soul
    how can I keep from singing?

    What though the tempest loudly roars
    I know the truth it liveth
    What though the darkness round me close
    Songs in the night it giveth
    No storms can shake my inmost calm
    while to that rock I’m clinging
    Since love is Lord of heaven and earth
    how can I keep from singing?

    I lift my eyes, the cloud grows thin
    I see the blue above it
    and day by day this pathway smoothes
    since first I learned to love it
    The peace and love makes fresh my heart
    a fountain ever springing
    All things are mine since I am his
    how can I keep from singing?

  3. Morning Has Broken
    close

    Morning has broken, like the first morning
    Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
    Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
    Praise for the springing fresh from the word

    Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
    like the first dewfall, on the first grass
    Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
    sprung in completeness where his feet pass

    Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
    born of the one light, Eden saw play
    Praise with elation, praise every morning
    God’s recreation of the new day

  4. America The Beautiful
  5. Wayfaring Stranger
    close

    I am a poor wayfaring stranger
    a travelling though this world of woe
    But there’s no sickness toil or danger
    in that bright land to which I go
    I’m going there to see my Father
    I’m going there no more to roam
    I’m just a going over Jordan
    I’m just a going over home

    I know dark clouds will gather round me
    I know my way is rough and steep
    yet beauteous fields lie just before me
    where those redeemed no more shall weep
    I’m going there to see my mother
    she said she’d meet me when I come
    I’m just a going over Jordan
    I’m just a going over home

    So I will wear a crown of glory
    when I get home to that good land
    and I will sing redemption’s story
    in concert with that heavenly band
    I’m going there to see my brother
    I’m going there no more to roam
    I’m just a going over Jordan
    I’m just a going over home

  6. Amazing Grace
    close

    Amazing grace how sweet the sound
    that saved a wretch like me
    I once was lost but now am found
    was blind but now I see

    Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
    and grace my fears relieved
    How precious did that grace appear
    the hour I first believed

    Through many dangers toils and snares
    I have already come
    Tis grace that brought me safe thus far
    and grace will lead me home

    When we’ve been there a thousand years
    bright shining as the sun
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    than when we first begun

  7. What A Wonderful World
    close

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed the day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
    But they’re really saying is I love you.

    I hear baby’s crying and I watched them grow
    They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
    Yes, I think to myself what a wonderful world.

  8. The Prayer
    close

    I pray you’ll be our eyes and watch us where we go
    and help us to be wise in times when we don’t know
    Let this be our prayer when we lose our way
    Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace, to a place where we’ll be safe

    I pray we’ll find your light and hold it in our hearts
    when stars go out each night remind us where you are
    Let this be our prayer when shadows fill our day
    Lead us to a place, guide us with your grace give us faith so we’ll be safe

    We ask that life be kind and watch us from above
    we hope each soul will find another soul to love
    Let this be our prayer just like every child needs to find a place
    give us faith so we’ll be safe

  9. Be Still My Soul
    close

    Be still my soul - the Lord is on thy side;
    bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
    leave to thy God to order and provide;
    in every change - he faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul - thy best thy heavenly Friend
    through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

    Be still my soul - when dearest friends depart,
    and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
    then shalt thou better know his love - his heart,
    who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
    Be still, my soul - the waves and winds still know
    his voice who ruled them - while he dwelt below.

    Be still my soul the hour is hastening on
    when we shall be forever with the Lord,
    when disappointment - grief and fear are gone,
    sorrow forgot - love’s purest joys restored,.
    Be still my soul - when change and tears are past,
    all safe and blessed - we shall meet at last.

  10. How Great Thou Art
    close

    O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
    consider all the works thy hand hath made
    I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder
    thy power throughout the universe displayed

    Then sings my soul my saviour God to thee
    How great thou art how great thou art
    Then sings my soul my saviour God to thee
    How great thou art, how great thou art

    When through the woods and forest glades I wander
    and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
    when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
    and hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

    When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
    and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart
    Then shall I bow in humble adoration
    and there proclaim my God how great thou art

  11. Rest In Peace
    close

    For all who need comfort for all those who mourn
    all those whom we cherished will be reborn
    All those whom we love but see no more
    they are not perished, but gone before
    and lie in the tender arms of he who died for us all to set us free
    from hatred and anger and cruel tyranny
    may they rest in peace - and rise in glory

    All suffering and sorrow will be no more
    they’ll vanish like shadows at heaven’s door
    All anguish and grieving will one day be healed
    when all of God’s purpose will be revealed.
    Though now for a season lost from sight
    the innocent slain in the blindness of ‘right’
    are now in the warmth of God’s glorious light
    where they rest in peace - and rise in glory

    Lord give me wisdom to comprehend why I survive and not my friend
    and teach me compassion so I may live, all my enemies to forgive

    For all who need comfort for all those who mourn
    all those whom we cherished will be reborn
    All those whom we love but see no more
    they are not perished but gone before
    And Lord keep them safe in your embrace
    and fill their souls with your good grace
    for now they see you face to face
    where they rest in peace - and rise in glory

  12. Sanctus
    close

    Sanctus, Sanctus

    Benedictus qui venit in Domine

    Sanctus Dominus Deus Sabbaoth,
    Pleni sunt coeli et terra Gloria

    Benedictus in nomine
    Qui venit in nomine

  13. Song Of Life
    close

    There’s a whisper in the dark as a new life comes to be
    Then a song begins to form as it finds the harmony
    With the chorus of sound
    of the world all around
    now it blends in the tune joining the endless song of life,

    We shall never be alone as we link our hearts in one
    Joining voices from above,all in the miracle of life
    Through the ages we will grow, only time will ever know,
    as our voices magnify, all in the miracle of life

    Love plays along in our lives yet to come as we join in the song of life.
    Now the music starts to build as the words begin to rhyme
    then another lends a tune as their voices now combine
    With the chorus of sound of the world all around
    Now they blend in their tune sharing the endless song of life

  14. Ave Maria
    close

    Ave Maria, gratia plena,
    Maria, gratia plena,
    Ave, Ave, Dominus,
    Dominus tecum.
    Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus,
    Et benedictus fructus ventris tui,
    Ventris tui, Jesus.
    Ave Maria!

    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
    Ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
    Nunc et in hora mortis,
    In hora mortis nostrae.
    Ave Maria!

  15. Voca Me
    close

    As secret as a dream you call
    as silent as the night for all you cry
    Lacrymosa

    Lacrymosa dies illa
    Dolorosa Domine
    Voca
    Voca Me

    You whisper in my silent sleep
    You answer to my call when lost I cry
    Lacrymosa

  16. How Shall I Sing That Majesty
    close

    How great a being
    which doth all beings keep
    Thy knowledge the only line
    to sound so vast a deep

    Thou art a sea without a shore
    a sun without a sphere
    Thy time is now and evermore
    Thy place is everywhere

    How shall I sing that majesty
    which angels do admire?
    Let dust in dust and silence lie
    Sing, sing ye heavenly choir

    Enlighten with faith my heart, inflame it with love’s fire
    then shall I bear a part with that celestial choir
