Heavenly Mother of Guadelupe - Our Lady of the Americas
I’M YOUR MOTHER (Lyrics: Marty Rotella & Ed Sansanelli)
I’m your Mother, give your love to me. Put your trust in me, I’m your Mother.
I’m your Mother, God gave you to me, I gave Him to you, I’m your Mother.
Joseph and I made ready, a stable then a home, for the King of Kings my Son, Jesus the Lord.
I’m your Mother, honour me endlessly. Please have faith in me. I’m your Mother.
I’m your Mother, build a house for me, for the world to see, I’m your Mother.
My home is your home, My house will be yours too. Build for Me, so I can build in you.
Soi du Madre, Damme du amore, soi du confianza en mi soi du Madre
I’m your Mother, God gave you to me, I gave Him to you. I’m your Mother,
Soi du Madre, I’m your Mother, soi du Madre, I’m your Mother ..etc to end
Im your Mother. (CD Mother Sweetest Best)
First Communion Hymn - `` O MARY MOTHER SWEETEST BEST`` (C. French)
- O Mary Mother, sweetest best; from heaven’s immortal bowers. Do gather for a little child, a bouquet of sweet flowers. I wish my little heart to be a cradle fair and gay, where blessed Jesus may repose On my First Communion Day. Where blessed Jesus may repose on my First Communion Day.
- My little child, I can obtain so bright a wreath for thee. That Jesus will delight to come, within thy heart to be. I’ll give thee lovely charity more warm than roses glow. I’ll give thee heavenly purity more white than lilly snow I’ll give thee heavenly purity more white than lilly snow.
- The violet of humility shall yield a sweet perfume And Jesus will delight to be, within thy little room. But then remember dearest child, the blossoms that I give require the watering of a prayer or they will cease to live require the watering of a prayer or they will cease to live.
Hail Mary, Gentle Woman (Carey Landry words & music of Gentle Woman)
Hail Mary (traditional prayer)
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with You. Blessed are You among women, and blessed is the fruit of Your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
(CHORUS) Gentle woman, quiet light, morning star, so strong and bright Gentle Mother, peaceful dove, teach us wisdom, teach us Love. You were chosen by the Father, You were chosen for the Son. You were chosen from all women, and for Woman, shining One.
Blessed are you among women, blessed in turn all women too
Blessed they with peaceful spirits, blessed they with gentle hearts.
IMMACULATE MARY (AVE AVE AVE MARIA) (trad. sung in procession at Fatima)
- Immaculate Mary, we praise God in you. His power and His mercy, His grace given to you. Ave, ave, ave, Maria; Ave, ave, ave Maria.
- To You by an angel the Father made known; the grace of His Spirit, the gift of His Son. Ave, ave, ave Maria; Ave, ave, ave Maria.
- Most blessed of all women you heard and believed. Most blessed in the fruit of Your womb then conceived. Ave, ave, ave, Maria; Ave, ave, ave Maria.
- The Angels rejoiced when You brought forth God’s Son. Your joy is the joy of all ages to come. Ave, ave, ave, Maria; Ave, ave, ave Maria.
The Visit (offered)
- She walked in the summer through the heat on the hill. She hurried as one who went with a will. She danced in the sunlight when the day was done. Her heart knew no evening Who carried the Son.
- Fresh as a flower at the first ray of dawn, She came to Her cousin whose morning was gone. But there leapt a little child in the ancient womb And there leapt a little hope in every ancient tomb.
- Hail, little sister, who heralds the spring. Hail, brave Mother, who carries the King. Hail to the moment beneath Your breast. May all generations call You blessed.
- When you walk in the summer through the heat on the hill, When your wound with the wind and one with His will – be brave with the burdens you are blessed to bear, for it’s Christ that you carry everywhere, everywhere, everywhere. (On CD “Sweet Sacrament”)
Sing, Halle Halleluia (words S. Very/music Hosanna music)
Come let us sing for joy to the Lord, And honour the Mother of Jesus For He is our God and She brings us to Him. She’s the Woman clothed with the Sun. Sing halle, halleluia, sing halle luia. Sing halle, halleluia, sing halle halleluia.
(Prayer spoken) – Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your Spirit over the earth Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war. And may the Lady of all Nations who once was Mary, be our Advocate. Sing halle halleluia sing halle luia etc Sing Ave Maria, sing halle, halleluia.
LOVELY LADY DRESSED IN BLUE (poem) (Music B.Murray)
Lovely Lady dress in Blue, teach me how to pray God was just your little boy, tell me what to say. Did you lift Him up sometimes, gently on your knee? Did you sing to Him the way, Daddy does to me? Did you hold His hand at night. Did you ever try telling Him stories of the world, Oh, and did He cry? Do you really think He cares, when I tell Him things, little things that happen and do the angels wings – make a noise and can you hear me if I speak low? Does He understand me now? Tell me, for You know.
La belle dame habilee dans le bleu, Enseignez-moi comment prier. Dieu etait juste votre petit garcon – Dites-moi quoi dire Avez vous avez tenu sa main la nuit, avez vous afait jamais essai. Dire des histories su le monde, O! Et a til pleure. Lovely lady dressed in blue, teach me how to pray; God was just your little boy and He will know the way. Lovely lady, lovely lady, lovely lady blue; Lovely lady……
Holy God We Praise Thy Name
Holy God we praise Thy name Lord of all we bow before Thee All on earth Thy septre claim. All in heaven above adore Thee Infinite is thy vast domain, Everlasting is Thy reign.
Hark, the loud celestial hymn. Angel choirs above are raising. Cherubim and Seraphim in unceasing chorus praising. Fill the heavens with sweet accord, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord!”
Holy Father, holy Son, holy Spirit, three we name Thee. While in essence only One, Undivided God we claim Thee. And adoring bend the knee, while we own the mystery.
- 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.
- T’was 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. We have already come. Twas grace that brought us safe thus far And grace will lead us home.
JUST LET ME SAY (J Bullock)
- Just let me say, how much I love You, Let me speak of Your mercy and grace. Just let me live in the shadow of beauty. Let me see you face to face. And the earth will skake as your words go forth And the heavens can tremble and fall. Just let me say how much I love you. O my saviour, my Lord and Friend.
- Just let me hear your finest whispers, as you gently call my name. And let me see your power and your glory, let me feel your spirits flame. Let me find you in the desert, till this sand is holy ground. And I am found completely surrendered. To You my Lord and Friend.
- So let me say how much I love you, with all my heart I long for you. For I am caught in this passion of knowing, this endless love I’ve found in You. And the depth of grace, the forgiveness fouind, to be called a child of God. Just makes me say how much I love You, O my Saviour, my Lord and friend.
Our Father prayer (Music Erich Sylvester)
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses As we forgive those, who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
Deliver us, Lord, from every evil And grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin And protect us from all anxiety As we walk in joyful hope For the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ
For the kingdom,, and the power – and the glory are Yours,Now and forever, amen. Amen.
SPIRIT SONG (music and words by John Wimber)

O How Wonderful (lyrics and music by Stasia Very)
- Oh, how wonderful, how wonderful it is just to be – Knowing who we are, when we find Thee Loving you, is so beautiful, stay with me, stay with me.
- Let me not forget, this pleasure You bring to my soul, Help me not to seek, other treasure that’s fleeting and cold. And all that is needed of me, to be so warm, and so free — (interlude) O how wonderful it is just to be… O how wonderful it is just to be.
- I surrender now, to this time, knowing I am yours, and God You are mine. Loving You, will set me apart – From all fear, straight to your heart. Let me not forget this pleasure You bring to my soul, help me not to seek other treasure that’s fleeting and cold. And all that is needed of me, to be so warm and so free — Is to ask You, oh yes, just to ask You, For it is You who lives in me– Who lives in me.

Kisses From Above (lyrics and music by Angeline Very)
1. Yesterday has gone on the wings of tomorrow Dreams of you and me, a fading memory. Oh —- sweet spirit in me – Oh —- sweet angel set free Chorus

On the wings of a snow-white dove He send His pure sweet love A sign from above. On the wings of a dove

COME HOLY GHOST (Tallis – 1510-45 trad.)
Come Holy Ghost, Creator come from Thy bright heavenly throne, Come take possession of our souls and make them all thy own. Thou who art called Paraclete, best gift of God above. The living spring, the living fire, sweet unction and true love.
Thou who art sevenfold in thy grace Finger of God’s right hand; His promise teaching little ones to speak and undertand.
O guide our minds with thy blest light, with love our hearts inflame; And with thy strength which ne’re decays confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our deadly foe; true peace unto us bring; And through all perils lead us safe Beneath thy sacred wing.
Through Thee may we the Father know; through Thee the eternal Son And thee the Spirit of them both thrice blessed Three in One.
All glory to the Father be. With his co-equal Son The same to Thee, great Paraclete, while endless ages run.
LAND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT – (Lyrics and music S Very)
Land of the Holy Spirit………Land of the Holy Spirit………. LAND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD x 2
(spoketn) I love a sunburned country a land of sweeping plains Of rugged mountain ranges Of droughts and flooding rains
To her far horizons and to her jewel seas To the Southern Cross that shines from above Enter our hearts with the fire of Your Love And we will lead on with the strength of the SUN With Jesus Our Lord and our King. ..Land my land, land of mine……
CHORUS Australia, Australia, inviting all young hearts to be. The sign of Your Love On the wings of The Dove To this great Southland, you and me.
THE FULLNESS OF GOD ( F Andersen MSC )
Deep in Christ I pray you know the power He can give. May your hidden self grow strong and may you live, Strong in faith and built on love, until you know – How high and long, how wide and deep, the fullness of God.
May the God of Jesus Christ, the Father we serve Fill your minds that you may see, deep in your heart What hope his call now holds for you, His promise true, to fill your hearts with power to live, the fullness of God.
Know the way you learned from Christ, to live life anew Let your hearts be drawn to Him, let Christ renew, The hope in you, to grow into. – goodness and truth And living so you’ll come to know, the fullness of God (coda) And living so you’ll come to know, the fullness of God.

- Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on us…..
- Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on them….
