WHAT CHILD IS THIS
What child is this who laid to rest, on Mary's lap is sleeping.
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
while shepherds watch are keeping.
CHORUS: - This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
Haste, haste to bring Him praise,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
2. Why lies He in such mean estate where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians fear, for sinners here the silent Word is pleading. (REPEAT CHORUS )
3. So bring Him incense gold and myrrh.
Come peasant king to own Him.
The King of kings, salvation brings.
Let loving hearts enthrone Him (CHORUS)
Heavenly Mother of Guadelupe - Our Lady of the Americas

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.

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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
Canticle of Creation (Music: T Watts Lyrics: M McInerney)
1. As night gives birth to the dawn and I see all the grandeur of each day.
I long to have and to hold, all the wonder of your heart,
All the power in your love. All the mystery embodied in your word.
(Chorus) Spirit breathe your breath of love!
Creation yearns for you to come.
Renew your earth, outpour your healing care.
Lord restore the harmony where humankind may learn to see,
The hope the dream in your almighty plan.
2. The earth is blessed and adorned
By the breath and presence of your love.
All those who dwell in this land - shall awaken to your voice
They shall stand to give you praise, and your faithfulness will reign for evermore.
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
And her beauty had a place not for this earth,
She chose to offer up her life for love
But her spirit hovered gently at her birth
She’ll always go on loving - sending kisses from above
2. I held her little hand, and touched her little face.
Precious body of a girl, a spirit full of grace.
Oh --- sweet spirit in me - oh ----sweet angel set free (repeat Chorus)
Oh ---- divine, Oh --- divine, oh -- Child of mine.
On the Wings of a Dove (lyrics and music by Sonny James)
On the wings of a snow-white dove He send His pure sweet love
A sign from above. On the wings of a dove
1. When troubles surround us, when evils come.
The body grows weak, the spirit grows numb.
When these things beset us, He doesn’t forget us
He sends down His love - on the wings of a dove. (REPEAT CHORUS)
2. When Jesus went down to the river that day
He was baptized in the usual way.
And when it was done, God blessed His son
He sent Him His love - on the wings of a dove
3. When Noah had drifted on the flood many days
He searched for land in various ways
Troubles, he had some, but wasnn’t forgotten
He sent Him His love - on the wings of a dove. (REPEAT CHORUS)
COME HOLY GHOST (Tallis – 1510-45 trad.) (on CD Holy Spirit of Love)
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.

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.
