If we could only speak to her,
And hold her loving hand,
No matter what we said or did,
I know she'd understand.

Sadly missed along life's way,
Quietly remembered every day,
No longer in our life to share,
But in our hearts he's always there.

Memory is a lovely lane,
Where hearts are ever true,
A lane I so often travel down,
Because it leads to you.

Your presence I miss,
Your memory I treasure,
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.

I sit and wonder every day,
Why the Lord chose to call you away,

He only takes the very best.

4.6
Everyday in some small way,
Memories of you come our way,
Though absent, you are always near,
Still missed, loved, always dear.

4.7
A sadness still comes over us,
Tears in silence often flow,
Memory keeps you ever near us,
Though you died one year ago.

4.8
Resting where no shadows fall,
In peaceful sleep he awaits us all;
God will link the broken chain,
When one by one we meet again.

The stillness in the room,
Was like the stillness in the air,
Between heaven and earth.

We who love you, sadly miss you,
As it dawns another year,
In our lonely hours of thinking,
Thoughts of you are ever near.

And died beloved by all.

We loved her too dearly to forget.

It's just a little,
But means a lot,

Wonderful memories she left behind.

You were gone before we knew it,
And only God can tell us why.

Yet somehow you know that she is,
Guiding us on our paths.

Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
His weary trials and troubles past,
In silence he suffered, in patience he bore,
Till God called him home to suffer no more.

Although we smile and make no fuss,
No one misses him more than us;
And when old times we oft recall,
That's when we miss him most of all.

4.24
Keep her Jesus, in Thy keeping,
Until I reach that golden shore,
Then dear Saviour let me have her,
And love her as I did before.

4.25
Every tear is a prism through which I see,
A rainbow of emotions and memories,
Though fate has led you to another place,
rue moments hold meaning time can never erase.

4.26
His life earnest, his actions kind,
A willing hand, an active mind,
Anxious to please, loath to offend,
A loving brother and faithful friend.

4.27
Thinking of the thoughtful things,
That you have said and done,
And loving you a little more,
Dear ......, for every one.

4.28
We can't have old days back,
When we were all together,
But secret tears and loving thoughts,
Will be with us forever.

4.29
He walks with us down quiet paths,
And speaks in wind and rain,
For the magic power of memory,
Gives him back to us again.

The years may wipe out many things,
But this they'll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days,
Which we have spent together.

4.31
(Number of) years ago you were called home,
Our thoughts are ever of you,
You are dearly loved and sadly missed,
God willing, we will meet again.

Dear mother (father) you are not forgotten,
Though on earth you are no more,
Still in memory you are with us,
As you always were before.

To me, her (his) name will ever be,
The key that unlocks memory,
Of a dear one gone, but cherished yet,
A beloved face I'll never forget.

4.34
Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring,
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again.

Afterglow

I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an afterglow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears, of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun
of happy memories that I leave
when life is done.

 

Baby

God on his throne in heaven
looked around at his flowers so fair,
and then sought a blossom on earth
to add to those He had there.
To be part of such heavenly company
the bloom must be pure and sweet,
and the little bud that was chosen
was the child who had played at our feet.
Sorrow is great at the loss of our child
at the parting with one we love,
but the parting was made that our child
might go to brighten the heavens above.

 

Be At Peace

Do not look forward in fear to the
changes in life; rather look to them
with full hope that as they arise,
God, whose very own you are, will
lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it, God
will carry you in His arms. Do not
fear what may happen tomorrow, the
same everlasting Father who cares
for you today, will take care of you
then and everyday. He will either
shield you from suffering, or will
give you unfailing strength to bear
it. Be at peace and put aside all
anxious thoughts and imaginations.

St. Francis de Sales

 

Blue Skies

God hath not promised
Skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways
All our lives through;
God hath not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without pain.
But God hath promised
Strength for the day,
Rest for the labor,
Light for the way.
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
Unfailing sympathy,
Undying love...

 

Child

God needed an angel in Heaven
to stand at the Savior 's feet;
His choice must be the rarest
A lily pure and sweet.
He gazed upon the mighty throng
Then stopped and picked the best,
Our child was His chosen one
With Jesus (he's/she's) now at rest.

 

Darling Mother

What is home without a mother?
All things this world may send,
But when we lost our darling mother,
We lost our dearest friend.
Loving and kind in all your ways,
Upright and just to the end of your days;
Sincere and true, in your heart and mind;
Beautiful memories, you left behind.
However long our lives may last,
Whatever lands we view,
Whatever joy or grief be ours,
We will always think of you.

 

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Mary Frye (1932)


Death Is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland

 

Everlasting Light, The

Those we love must someday pass
beyond our present sight. . .
must leave us and the world we know
without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle
their lovely light will shine
to brighten up another place
more perfect... more devine.
And in the realm of Heaven
where they shine so warm and bright,
our loved ones live forevermore
in God's eternal light.

 

Father, A Light

A light is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God gave us a beautiful father,
A father who never grew old,
You were always there
With a helping hand,
Help us now to accept His plan.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by, we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can take our "Father's Place".
May the choirs of the angels receive
you and may you have rest
and peace everlasting. Amen.

 

Footprints

One night I dreamed I was walking
Along the beach with the Lord,
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints.
Other times there was only one.
This bothered me because I noticed
During the low periods of my life when I was
Suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord, You promised me,
Lord, that if I followed you,
You would walk with me always.
But I noticed during the most trying periods
Of my life there has only been
One set of prints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
Have you not been there for me?
The Lord replied,
The times when you have seen only one set of footprints
It was then that I carried you.

Anon

 

For a Mother

A light is from our household gone,
A voice we loved is stilled.
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
God gave us a beautiful mother,
A mother who never grew old.
You were always there with a helping hand.
Help us now to accept His plan.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by, we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can take our mother's place.
May you rest in peace.

God Lent a Child

"I'll lend you for a little time
a child of mine," He said
"For you to love the while he lives
and mourn for when he's dead.
It may be two or three years,
or twenty-two or three,
but will you 'til I call him back,
take care of him for me?
He will bring his charms to gladden you
and shall his stay be brief,
you will have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return,
but there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the whole wide world over in
my search for teachers true,
and from the crowd that throngs life's
lanes I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come to call
to take him back again."
I fancied that I heard them say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done.
For all the joy Thy child shall bring
the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may.
And for the happiness we've known,
forever grateful stay.
But shall the angels call for him much
sooner than we've planned,
we will brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand."


Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with Thee:
blessed art Thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of
Thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.

Amen

 

His/Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of (him/her) as gone away,
her journey's just begun.
Life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrow and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.

Ellen Brenneman

 

I am Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following paths God made for me
I took his hand I heard him call
Then turned, and bid farewell to all
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to sing, to play
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my peace... at close of play
And if my parting left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened... deep with sorrow
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow
My life's been full I've savoured much
Good friends, good times
A loved one's touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with grief
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
God wants me now... He set me free.

Anon

 

I am There

Look for me when the tide is high
and the gulls are wheeling overhead.
When the autumn wind
sweeps the cloudy sky,
and one by one the leaves are shed.
Look for me when the trees are bare
and the stars are bright in the frosty sky.
When the morning mist hangs on the air,
and shorter darker days pass by.
I am there, where the river flows,
and salmon leap to a silver moon,
where the insects hum,
and the tall grass grows,
and sunlight warms the afternoon.
I am there in the busy street,
I take your hand in the city square.
In the market place where the people meet.
In your quiet room, I am there.
I am the love you cannot see,
and all I ask is, look for me.

 

I Am Standing Upon The Seashore

I am standing upon the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze
and startsfor the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength.
I stand and watch her until at length
she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sea and sky come
to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says;
"There, she is gone!"

"Gone where?"

Gone from my sight. That is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull
and spar as she was when she
left my sideand she is just as able to bear her
load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone
at my side says, "There, she is gone!"
There are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout;
"Here she comes!"
And that is dying.

By Henry Van Dyke



Let Me Go

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that once we shared
Miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone.
It's all part of the master's plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart
Go to the friends we know.
Laugh at all the things we used to do
Miss me, but let me go.

When I am dead my dearest
Sing no sad songs for me
Plant thou no roses at my head
Nor shady cypress tree
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet
And if thou wilt remember
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not fear the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on as if in pain;
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.

Christina Rosetti

Life

Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn
some things,
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place
far greater than we know
For some, the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.

 

Little Angel

When God calls little children to
dwell with Him above, we mortals
sometimes question the wisdom of
His Love. For no heartache compares
with the death of one small child,
who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps
God tires of calling the aged to His
fold, so He picks a rosebud before
it can grow old. God knows how much
we need them, and so He takes a few
to make the land of Heaven more
beautiful to view. Believing this is
difficult, still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be "Good-bye". So, when
a little child departs, we who are left
behind must realize God loves children.
Angels are hard to find.

Love

Love is patient; Love is kind;
Love is not jealous,
it does not put on airs,
it is not snobbish.
Love is never rude.
It is not self seeking,
it is not prone to anger;
neither does it
brood over injuries.
Love does not rejoice
in what is wrong
but rejoices with the truth.
There is no limit to
Love's forbearance, its trust,
its hope, its power to endure.
Love never fails.

 

May You Always Walk In Sunshine

May you always walk in sunshine
and God's love around you flow,
for the happiness you gave us,
no one will ever know.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you did not go alone,
a part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
A million times we needed you,
a million times we've cried.
If love could only have saved you,
you never would have died.

 

Memory

Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one's gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They'll live on in our heart.


Memories

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake
with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

 

Mother

My Mum so gentle, kind and warm
you give me comfort from any storm.
You give me love and tender care,
and best of all you're always there.
I thank you Mum for all you've done
for all the laughter and the fun.
For all the meals, for all the time,
I thank the Lord, that you are mine.

 

Perhaps

Perhaps you sent a lovely card
Or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray,
If so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
As any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all,
Just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts,
We thank you so much whatever the part.



Safely Home

I am in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In His everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever;
safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder how I so calmly
trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
in that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
for I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
so you must not idly stand;
do it now, while life remaineth--
you shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

 

She Is Gone (He Is Gone)

You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

David Harkins

 

She Is Gone

I am standing on the seashore.
A ship spreads her sails to the
morning breeze and starts for
the ocean. I am watching until
she fades on the horizon, and
someone at my side says,
"She is gone."
Gone where? The loss of sight
is in me, not in her. Just at the
moment when someone says
"She is gone," There are others
who are watching her coming.
Other voices take up the glad
shout, "Here she comes!"....
And that is dying.


Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to
accept the things I cannot change.
The courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference.

 

The Sky is Filled With Angels

The sky is filled with Angels
With puffy lacy wings
The remnants of God's beauty
With treasures they now bring

Each one of them a Guardian
That travels in the sky
To watch throughout eternity
Their parents from on high

Smiles that come from Angels
They fall like crystal rain
Eases earthly burdens
Lifting all life's pain

Halos so astounding
That glitter gold each day
Following their loved ones
In such a perfect way

Wings in gentle breezes
That fall from up above
Kissing every parent
With everlasting love

Angels soar through heaven
With everlasting light
Looking down from heaven
Saying their "goodnights"

Kissing all who loved them
So gently on the face
This life's tender mercy
Each parent can embrace

Wings and shiny halos
Travel from on high
Surrounding all their loved ones
They never say good-bye.

 

What is Dying?

A ship sails and I stand
Watching till she fades on the horizon
And someone at my side says,
She is gone.
Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all;
She is just as large as when I saw her.
The diminished size and total loss of sight
Is in me, not in her,
And just at the moment
When someone at my side says
She is gone
There are others who are watching her coming,
And other voices take up a glad shout
There she comes!
And that is dying

Bishop Brent

 

When I Am Gone

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown
But now it's time I travelled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a little while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me,
I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart,
Then you'll hear all my love around you,
Soft and clear,
And then when you must come
This way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and say
"Welcome Home"

Abide With Me Hymn

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, O abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day;
Earth's joys grow dim; its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me.

Not a brief glance I beg, a passing word;
But as Thou dwell'st with Thy disciples, Lord,
Familiar, condescending, patient, free.
Come not to sojourn, but abide with me.

Come not in terrors, as the King of kings,
But kind and good, with healing in Thy wings,
Tears for all woes, a heart for every plea—
Come, Friend of sinners, and thus bide with me.

Thou on my head in early youth didst smile;
And, though rebellious and perverse meanwhile,
Thou hast not left me, oft as I left Thee,
On to the close, O Lord, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour.
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter's power?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.

I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
Where is death's sting? Where, grave, thy victory?
I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.

Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;
Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.
Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee;
In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

 

All things bright and beautiful

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

1. Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful...

2. The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

All things bright and beautiful...

3. The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one;

All things bright and beautiful...

4. The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows for our play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day;

All things bright and beautiful...

5. He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful...

 

All that I am, all that I do

All that I am, all that I do
All that I'll ever have
I offer now to You
Take and sanctify these gifts
For your honour Lord
Knowing that I love and serve You
Is enough reward
All that I am, all that I do,
all that I'll ever have I offer now to you.

All that I dream, all that I pray,
all that I'll ever make
I give to you today.
Take and sanctify these gifts
For your honour Lord
Knowing that I love and serve You
Is enough reward
All that I am, all that I do,
all that I'll ever have I offer now to you.

 

Amazing Grace
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 hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The world shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun refuse to shine;
But God, who called me here below,
Shall be forever mine.

When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we'd first begun.

As I kneel before you,
As I bow my head in prayer,
Take this day, make it yours
and fill me with your love.

Benedicta tu.

Every dream and wish are yours,
Mother of Christ,
Mother of mine, present them to my Lord.

Ev'ry thought, ev'ry word
Is lost in your embrace.

With reverence and fear.

We stand on holy ground.

The Holy One is here.

Be still for the glory of the Lord
Is shining all around.
He burns with holy fire,
With splendor he is crowned.
How awesome is the sight -
Our radiant King of light!
Be still for the glory of the Lord
Is shining all around.

Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.
He comes to cleanse and heal,
To minister his grace.
No work too hard for him -
In faith, receive from him.
Be still for the power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.

 

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
naught be all else to me, save that Thou art _
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my wisdom, Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee, Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle-shield, sword for the fight,
be Thou my dignity, Thou my delight.
Thou my soul's shelter, Thou my high tower:
raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven, after victory won,
may I reach heaven's joys, O bright "heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O ruler of all.

 

Bring flowers of the rarest,

Bring flowers of the rarest,
bring blossoms the fairest,
from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
our full hearts are swelling,
our glad voices telling
the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale.

O Mary, we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May. (2)

Their lady they name thee,
their mistress proclaim thee,
Oh, grant that thy children on earth be as true
as long as the bowers
are radiant with flowers
as long as the azure shall keep its bright hue.

Sing gaily in chorus,
the bright angels o'er us
re-echo the strains we begin upon earth;
their harps are repeating
the notes of our greeting,
for Mary herself is the cause of our mirth.

 

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you.
I have called you by your name; you are mine.

When you walk through the waters, I'll be with you.
You will never sink beneath the waves.
Do not be afraid...

When the fire is burning all around you,
you will never be consumed by the flames.
Do not be afraid...

When the fear of loneliness is looming,
then remember I am at your side.
Do not be afraid...

When you dwell in the exile of the stranger,
remember you are precious in my eyes.
Do not be afraid...

You are mine, O my child; I am your Father,
and I love you with a perfect love.
Do not be afraid...

 

Eternal Father, strong to save,

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
its own appointed limits keep:
O hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Christ, whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at thy word,
who walkedst on the foaming deep,
and calm amid the storm didst sleep;
O hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Holy Spirit, who didst brood
Upon the waters dark and rude,
And bid their angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace:
O hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Trinity of love and power,
Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go:
Thus evermore shall rise to thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

 

Faith of our fathers

Faith of our fathers, living still,
In spite of dungeon, fire and sword;
O how our hearts beat high with joy
Whenever we hear that glorious Word!

Faith of our fathers, holy faith!
We will be true to thee till death.

Faith of our fathers, we will strive
To win all nations unto Thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
We all shall then be truly free.

Refrain
Faith of our fathers, we will love
Both friend and foe in all our strife;
And preach Thee, too, as love knows how
By kindly words and virtuous life.

For the beauty of the earth,

For the beauty of the earth,
For the beauty of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies:
Father, unto Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light:
Father, unto Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above;
For all gentle thoughts and mild:
Father, unto Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

For each perfect gift of Thine
To our race so freely given,
Graces, human and divine,
Flowers of earth, and buds of heaven:
Father, unto Thee we raise
This our sacrifice of praise.

 




God be with you till we meet again;

God be with you till we meet again;
by his counsels guide, uphold you,
with his sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet,
till we meet at Jesus' feet;
till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again;
neath his wings securely hide you,
daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet...

God be with you till we meet again;
when life's perils thick confound you,
put his arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet...

God be with you till we meet again;
keep love's banner floating o'er you,
strike death's threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Till we meet, till we meet...

 

Here I Am Lord

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Chorus:
Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have born my peoples pain.
I have wept for love of them, They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them,
Whom shall I send?
(Chorus)
I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide,
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them,
Whom shall I send?
(Chorus)

 

Hail Queen of Heaven, the ocean star

Hail Queen of Heaven, the ocean star,
Guide of the wand'rer here below;
Thrown on life's surge, we claim thy care;
Save us from peril and from woe.
Mother of Christ, star of the sea,
Pray for the wand'rer, pray for me.

O gentle, chaste and spotless maid,
We sinners make our prayers through thee;
Remind thy Son that he has paid
The price of our iniquity.
Virgin most pure, star of the sea,
Pray for the sinner, pray for me.

And while to him who reigns above,
In Godhead One, in persons Three,
The source of life, of grace, of love,
Homage we pay on bended knee,
Do thou, bright queen, star of the sea,
Pray for thy children, pray for me.

How Great Thou Art

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;

Then sings my soul...

But when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
sent him to die-I scarce can take it in
that on the cross, our burden gladly bearing,
he bled and died to take away our sin;

Then sings my soul...

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!

Then sings my soul...

 

I, the Lord of sea and sky,

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne my peopleÕs pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them.
Whom shall I send?

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied,
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

 

I am the Bread of life

I am the Bread of life,
He who comes to Me shall not hunger,
He who believes in Me shall not thirst.
No one can come to Me
Unless the Father draw him.

And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up,
And I will raise him up on the last day.

The bread that I will give
Is My flesh for the life of the world,
And he who eats of this bread,
He shall live for ever,
He shall live for ever.

Unless you eat
Of the flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of His blood,
And drink of His blood,
You shall not have life within you.

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life,
He who believes in Me
Even if he die,
He shall live for ever.

 

I am the Bread of Life

1. I am the Bread of Life
He who comes to me shall not hunger;
He who believes in me shall not thirst.
No one can come to me unless the Father draw him.

And I will raise him up,
and I will raise him up,
and I will raise him up
on the last day.

2. The bread that I will give
Is the flesh for the life of the world,
And he who eats of this bread, he shall live forever,
He shall live forever.

And I will raise him up,
and I will raise him up,
and I will raise him up
on the last day.

 

I Watch the sunrise

1. I watch the sunrise lighting the sky,
casting its shadows near.
And on this morning, bright though it be,
I feel those shadows near me.

But you are always close to me,
following all my ways.
May I be always close to you,
following all your ways, Lord.

2. I watch the sunlight shine through the clouds,
warming the earth below.
And at the mid-day, life seems to say:
'I feel your brightness near me.'

For you are always. . .

3. I watch the sunset fading away,
lighting the clouds with sleep.
And as the evening closes its eyes,
I feel your presence near me.

For you are always. . .

4. I watch the moonlight guarding the night,
waiting till morning comes.
The air is silent, earth is at rest
-only your peace is near me.

Yes, you are always. . .

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,
whose trust, ever child-like, no cares could destroy.
Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,
Your bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day.

Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,
whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe.
Be there at our labours, and give us, we pray,
Your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day.

Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,
your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace.
Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,
Your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day.

Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,
Whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm.
Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,
Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory. for ever and ever.

Love divine, all loves excelling,

Love divine, all loves excelling,
joy of heaven, to earth come down,
fix in us thy humble dwelling,
all thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesu, thou art all compassion,
pure unbounded love thou art;

enter every trembling heart.

Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all thy grace receive;
suddenly return, and never,
never more thy temples leave.

Finish then thy new creation:
pure and spotless let us be;
let us see thy great salvation,
perfectly restored in thee;

changed from glory into glory,
till in heaven we take our place,
till we cast our crowns before thee,
lost in wonder, love, and praise.

 

Lord of the dance

I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

Dance, then, wherever you may be,
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he,
And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,
And I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he.

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,
But they would not dance and they would not follow me;
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;
They came to me and the dance went on.

Dance, then, wherever you may be ......

I danced on the sabbath when I cured the lame,
The holy people said it was a shame;
They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high,
And they left me there on a cross to die.

Dance, then, wherever you may be ......

I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black;
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back;
They buried my body and they thought I'd gone,
But I am the dance and I still go on.

Dance, then, wherever you may be ......

They cut me down and I leapt up high,
I am the life that'll never, never die;
I'll live in you if you'll live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

Dance, then, wherever you may be ......

 

Make me a channel of your peace

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love.
Where there is injury, your pardon, Lord,
And where there's doubt, true faith in you.

Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness only light,
and where there's sadness ever joy.

Oh, Master, grant that I may never seek
so much to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love, with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
in giving to all men that we receive,
and in dying that we're born to eternal life.

 

Morning has broken, like the first morning

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

 

My God loves me

My God loves me.
His love will never end.
He rests within my heart
For my God loves me.

His gentle hand
He stretches over me.
Though storm clouds threaten the day
He will set me free.

He comes to me
In sharing bread and wine.
He brings me life that will reach
Past the end of time.

My God loves me,
His faithful love endures.
And I will live like a child
Held in love secure.

The joys of love
As offerings now we bring.
The pains of love will be lost
In the praise we sing.

 

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
the emblem of suffering and shame;
and I love that old cross where the dearest and best
for a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
and exchange it some day for a crown.

O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
has a wondrous attraction for me;
for the dear Lamb of God left his glory above
to bear it to dark Calvary.

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
a wondrous beauty I see,
for t'was on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
to pardon and sanctify me.

To that old rugged cross I will ever be true,
its shame and reproach gladly bear;
then he'll call me some day to my home far away,
where his glory forever I'll share.

 

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.
Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle see His banners go!

Refrain
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before.

At the sign of triumph Satan's host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
Brothers lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.

Refrain
Like a mighty army moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Refrain
What the saints established that I hold for true.
What the saints believed, that I believe too.
Long as earth endureth, men the faith will hold,
Kingdoms, nations, empires, in destruction rolled.

Refrain
Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain.
Gates of hell can never gainst that church prevail;
We have Christ's own promise, and that cannot fail.

Refrain
Onward then, ye people, join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honor unto Christ the King,
This through countless ages men and angels sing.

Refrain

 

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,
to his feet thy tribute bring;
ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
who like me his praise should sing?
Alleluia, Alleluia,
praise the everlasting King.

Praise him for his grace and favour
to our fathers in distress;
praise him still the same as ever,
slow to chide, and swift to bless:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
glorious in his faithfulness.

Father-like, he tends and spares us,
well our feeble frame he knows;
in his hands he gently bears us,
rescues us from all our foes:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
widely as his mercy flows.

Angels, help us to adore him;
ye behold him face to face;
sun and moon, bow down before him,
dwellers all in time and space:
Alleluia, Alleluia,
praise with us the God of grace.

 

Soul of my Saviour,

Soul of my Saviour,
sanctify my breast;
Body of Christ,
be thou my saving guest;
Blood of my Saviour,
bathe me in thy tide,
wash me with water
flowing from thy side.

Strength and protection
may thy passion be;
O blessed Jesus,
hear and answer me;
deep in thy wounds, Lord,
hide and shelter me;
so shall I never,
never part from thee.

Guard and defend me
from the foe malign;
in death's dread moments
make me only thine;
call me, and bid me
come to thee on high,
when I may praise thee
with thy saints for aye.

 

Sweet heart of Jesus,

1.Sweet heart of Jesus,
fount of love and mercy,
today we come,
thy blessing to implore;
O touch our hearts,
so cold and so ungrateful,
and make them,
Lord, thine own for evermore.

Sweet heart of Jesus, we implore,
O make us love thee more and more.

2. Sweet heart of Jesus,
make us know and love thee,
unfold to us
the treasures of thy grace;
that so our hearts,
from things of earth uplifted,
may long alone
to gaze upon thy face.

3. Sweet heart of Jesus,
make us pure and gentle,
and teach us how
to do thy blessed will;
to follow close
the print of thy dear footsteps,
and when we fall
- sweet heart, oh, love us still.

4. Sweet heart of Jesus,
bless all hearts that love thee,
and may thine own
heart ever blessed be;
bless us, dear Lord,
and bless the friends we cherish, and keep us true
to Mary and to thee.

 

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended,
the darkness falls at thy behest;
to thee our morning hymns ascended,
thy praise shall sanctify our rest.

We thank thee that thy Church unsleeping,
while earth rolls onward into light,
through all the world her watch is keeping,
and rests not now by day or night.

As o'er each continent and island
the dawn leads on another day,
the voice of prayer is never silent,
nor dies the strain of praise away.

The sun that bids us rest is waking
our brethren 'neath the western sky,
and hour by hour fresh lips are making
thy wondrous doings heard on high.

So be it, Lord; thy throne shall never,
like earth's proud empires, pass away;
thy kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
till all thy creatures own thy sway.

 

The Lord's My Shepherd - SUNG PSALM

The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for His own Name's sake.

Yea, though I walk in death's dark vale,
Yet will I fear none ill;
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
And staff me comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God's house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.

 

The Lord's My Shepherd

The Lord's my shepherd I'll not want
He makes me lie in pastures green
He leads me by the still waters
His goodness restores my soul

And I will trust in You alone
And I will trust in You alone
For your endless mercy follows me
Your goodness will lead me home

He guides my ways in righteousness
And He anoints my head with oil
And my cup it overflows with joy
I feast on His pure delights

And though I walk the darkest path
I will not fear the evil one
For You are with me and Your rod and staff
Are the comfort I need to know

 

 

The Old Rugged Cross
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suffering and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.

So I'll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above
To bear it to dark Calvary.

So I'll cherish...

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see,
For 'twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me.

So I'll cherish...

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true;
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He'll call me some day to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I'll share.

So I'll cherish...

 

Thine be the glory
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son,
Endless is the victory thou o'er death hast won;
Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,
Kept the folded grave-clothes where thy body lay:
Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son
Endless is the victory thou o'er death hast won.

Lo, Jesus meets us, risen from the tomb;
Lovingly he greets us, scatters fear and gloom;
Let the church with gladness hymns of triumph sing,
For her Lord now liveth, death hath lost its sting:......

No more we doubt thee, glorious Prince of Life;
Life is nought without thee: aid us in our strife;
Make us more than conquerors through thy deathless love;
Bring us safe through Jordan to thy home above:.....

 

Walk with me, oh my Lord

(chorus)
Walk with me, oh my Lord,
Through the darkest night and brightest day
Be at my side, oh Lord,
Hold my hand and guide me on my way.

Sometimes the road seems long,
My energy is spent.
Then, Lord, I think of you
And I am given strength
chorus

Stones often bar my path,
And there are times I fall,
But you are always there
To help me when I call.
chorus

Just as you calmed the wind
And walked upon the sea
Conquer, my living Lord
The storms that threaten me.
chorus

Help me to pierce the mists
That cloud my heart and mind,
So that I shall not fear
The steepest mountain-side.
chorus

As once you healed the lame
And gave sight to the blind
Help me when I'm downcast
To hold my head up high.
chorus
