Peace be within this sacred place,

And joy a constant guest!

While life or breath remains;

Here God, my Saviour, reigns.

Sing till the power of the Lord come down

Shout Hallelujah! Praise His Holy name!

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me;

I once was lost, but now I’m found, was blind, but now I see.

Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free?

No, there’s a cross for ev’ryone and there’s a cross for me.

Praise His Name, [etc.]

 

Praise His Holy Name!

Requiem

O savior of the world, who by thy cross and thy precious blood has redeemed us, save us and help us, we humbly beseech thee, O Lord.

II Psalm 23

III  Requiem aeternam (1)

IV Psalm 121

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills: from whence cometh my help; My help cometh even from the Lord: who hath made heav’n and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: and he that keepeth thee will not sleep. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord himself is thy keeper: he is thy defence upon thy right hand; So that the sun shall not burn thee by day: neither the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in: from this time forth and forevermore.

V Requiem aeternam (2)

Pilgrim Song 
RYAN MURPHY
Traditional American
SIENA MIRASOL, piano

My brethren, I have found a land that doth abound with fruit as sweet as honey;

The more I eat I find the more I am inclined to shout and sing Hosanna!

[Ref.]     My soul doth long to go where I may fully know the glory of my Savior.

Mid’ sweetness and the strife, I’ll live a joyful life. I’m going to sing forever!

 

Perhaps you think me wild or simple as a child; I am a child of glory.

I am born from above, my soul is filled with love; I love to tell the story.

[Ref.]

And as I pass along I’ll sing the Christian song, I’m going to live forever.

 

My soul now sits and sings and practices its wings, and contemplates the hour.

When the messenger shall say, ‘Come, quit this house of clay and with bright angels tower.”

[Ref.]

And as I pass along I’ll sing the Christian song, I’m going to live forever.

Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day  
JOHN GARDNER
Traditional English carol
SIENA MIRASOL, piano

Tomorrow shall be my dancing day;

I would my true love did so chance

To see the legend of my play

To call my true love to my dance;

            Ref.       Sing O my love,

O my love, my love, my love;

This have I done for my true love.

Then was I born of a virgin pure,

Of her I took fleshly substance;

Thus was I knit to man’s nature,

To call my true love to my dance

[Ref]

In a manger laid and wrapped I was,

So very poor this was my chance,

Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass,

To call my true love to my dance

[Ref]

Then afterwards baptized I was;

The Holy Ghost on my did glance,

My Father’s voice heard from above,

To call my true love to my dance

[Ref]

Sisi ni moja (we are one)
JACOB NARVERUD
Sung in English and Swahili
SIENA MIRASOL, piano

We all laugh, we all cry, we all feel hunger, we all feel pain.

We all love, we all hate, we all hope, and we all dream.

We are one world, one people. And we all breathe the same.

A tribe of many languages, a group of many heartaches,

Fighting for peace among the land.

Heja, heja, sisi ni moja. Heja, heja, we are one.

O Lord, Thou Hast Been Our Refuge
RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS
Psalm 90, from the Book of Common Prayer
Psalm 90, metrical paraphrase by Isaac Watts
SOPHIA RICH, soprano, GINA LINCOLN, alto, BRANDAN PATCHETT, tenor, PETER THOMSEN, bass
LINDSAY ARMSTRONG, conductor
KRAIG SCOTT, organ

Lord, Thou hast been our refuge from one generation to another

Before the mountains were brought forth or ever the earth and the world were made

Thou art God from everlasting and world without end.

Thou turnest man to destruction; again Thou sayest, Come again ye children of men

For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday, seeing that is past as a watch in the night.

O God our help in ages past

Our hope for years to come

Our shelter in the stormy blast

And our eternal home.

 

As soon as Thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep and fade away suddenly like the grass

In the morning it is green and growth up, but in the evening it is cut down, dried up and withered.

For we consume away in Thy displeasure, and are afraid at Thy wrathful indignation.

For when Thou art angry all our days are gone; we bring our years to an end as a tale that is told,

The years of our age are three score years and ten,

And though men be so strong that they come to four-score years, yet is their strength but labour and sorrow.

So passeth it away and we are gone.

 

Turn Thee again O Lord at the last. Be gracious unto Thy servants

O satisfy us with Thy mercy and that soon.

So shall we rejoice and be glad all the days of our life.

 

And the glorious Majesty of the Lord be upon us

Prosper Thou, O prosper Thou the work of our hands

O prosper Thou our handywork.

City Called Heaven
TORI REDIC, alto
SIENA MIRASOL, piano

I am a pilgrim, a pilgrim of sorrow,

I’m left in this wide world, this wide world alone

Ain’t got no hope got no hope for tomorrow

Trying to make it, make heaven my home.

 

Sometimes I’m tossed and I’m driven, Lord.

Sometimes I just don’t know which way to turn

Oh I heard of a city, a city called heaven

Trying to make it, make heaven my home.

ADELINE TOMARERE, alto

I hate to see you cry Laying there in that position
There's things you need to hear So turn off your tears and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go the way it should But I know the heart of life is good


You know it's nothing new Bad news never had good timing
But then the circle of your friends Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go the way it should But I know the heart of life is good


Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood But I know the heart of life is good

I know it's good

Brave
SARA BAREILLES, arr. KRAIG SCOTT
JOHANNA CHEVRIER, soprano
KRAIG SCOTT, piano

You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle 'neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody's been there, everybody's been stared down
By the enemy
Fallen for the fear and done some disappearing
Bow down to the mighty
Don't run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there's a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Innocence, your history of silence
Won't do you any good
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don't you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

Offertory
JOHN NESS BECK (1930-1987)

 

With what shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before God on high?

Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,

Shall I come before Him with yearling calves?

Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil?

Shall I give Him my firstborn for my transgressions,

      the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

He has shown you, O man, what is good.

And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice

      and to love kindness,

      and to walk humbly with your God?

O Be Joyful
GILBERT M. MARTIN (b.1941)

 

Jubilate Deo;

O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands: serve the Lord with gladness,

And come before His presence with a song.

Be ye sure that the Lord He is God;

It is He that hath made us and not we ourselves;

We are His people

And the sheep of His pasture.

O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands,

Serve the Lord with gladness and come before His presence with a song,

Be ye sure that the Lord He is God;

It is He that hath made us and not we ourselves;

We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

O go your way into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise;

Be thankful to Him and speak good of His name.

For the Lord is gracious,

His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth from generation to generation.

Glory be to the Father; Glory be to the Son; Glory be to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning,

Is now and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen.

King of Glory
CHARLES DAVID WALKER (b.1938), arranged by ROBERT BREWER (b.1952) 

 

King of glory, King of peace, I will love thee;

and that love may never cease, I will move Thee.

Thou hast granted my request, Thou hast heard me;

      Thou didst note my working breast, Thou hast spared me.

 

Wherefore with my utmost art, I will sing Thee;

      and the cream of all my heart, I will bring Thee.

Though my sins against me cried, Thou didst clear me;

and alone when they replied, Thou didst hear me.

 

Seven whole days, not one in seven, I will praise Thee;

      in my heart, though not in heaven, I can raise Thee.

Small it is in this poor sort to enroll Thee;

      e’en eternity’s too short to extol Thee.

O How Amiable
RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS (1872-1958)

 

O how amiable are thy dwellings, Thou Lord of hosts!

My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord;

My heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.

Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house,

and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young:

even Thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.

Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house: They will be always praising Thee.

The glorious majesty of the Lord our God be upon us:

prosper Thou the work of our hands upon us.

O prosper Thou our handiwork.

O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home.

What Sweeter Music 
JOHN RUTTER (b.1945)

 

What sweeter music can we bring

Than a carol, for to sing

The birth of this our heav’nly King?

Awake the voice! Awake the string!

Dark and dull night, fly hence away,

And give the honour to this day

That sees December turn’d to May.

 

Why does the chilling winter’s morn

Smile, like a field beset with corn?

Or smell like a meadow newly shorn

Thus on the sudden?

Come and see

The cause, why things thus fragrant be:

‘Tis He is born, whose quick’ning birth

Gives life and lustre, public mirth,

To heaven and the under earth.

 

We see Him come, and know Him ours,

Who, with His sunshine and His show’rs,

Turns the patient ground to flow’rs.

The darling of the world is come,

And fit it is, we find a room

To welcome Him.

The nobler part of all the house here, is the heart,

Which we will give Him; and bequeath

This holly, and this ivy wreath,

To do Him honour; who’s our King,

And Lord of all this reveling.

I saw a stranger yestereen;

I put food in the eating place,

      Drink in the drinking place,

      Music in the listening place;

And in the sacred names of the Triune

He blessed me and my house,

      My cattle and my dear ones.

And the lark said in her song:

      Often, often, often,

Goes the Christ in the stranger’s guise:

      Often, often, often,

Goes the Christ in the stranger’s guise.

Goin’a take it home-a to my Jesus,

Ain’-a that good news, good news!

 

I got a harp up in-a the Kingdom…

 

I got a robe up in-a the Kingdom…

 

I got a Saviour up in-a the Kingdom…

The Lord Is My Shepherd
JOHN RUTTER
clarinet:  Ron Coleman

 

The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing.

He shall feed me in a green pasture, and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.

He shall convert my soul and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness,

for His Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk thro’ the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;

For Thou art with me: Thy rod and Thy staff comfort me.

Thou shalt prepare a table for me against them that trouble me:

Thou hast anointed my head with oil and my cup shall be full.

But Thy loving kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.

Tonight Eternity Alone
RENÉ CLAUSEN (b.1953)
soloists:Elizabeth Rice, Stephanie Haddad

 

Tonight eternity alone is near,

The sunset, and the darkening blue,

There is no space for fear,

Only the wonder of its truth.
