Words trad. Words by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)

O sanctissima, O piissima, I am the hours and moments of your yesterday

dulcis virgo Maria I am your time gone by
Mater amata, intemerata All days and ages, fleeting long since passed away
Ora pro nobis as endless years roll by

Ora, ora, ora pro nobis I rise in the spark of life, the dawn of all time
I call to the worlds still yet to be
Virgo respice, Mater adspice The music is everywhere, in life, in the sea and air
audi nos, O Maria to join in the powerful song of all eternity
Sicut liliam inter spinas
Sic Maria inter filias I am the hours, the days and moments yet to come
until the end of time
Jubilate Cherubim All the centuries and seasons that are still to run
Exsultate Seraphim as endless years roll by
Consonante perpitim
Salve, salve Regina Then all of creation rings and all in the heavens sing
their glorious song through all eternity
Sancta Maria Mater Dei
I am the dawn of all time

Ave Virgo

Share with me this vow, and for all time saecula et saeculorum Alleluia

I give this love, I live this love Hark, we hear a distant music and it comes with fuller swell
no greater joy is mine ’tis the glorious song of heaven and our fears it will dispel

Angeli et archangeli, psallite et laudate

Gaelic Blessing (Deep Peace) in hymnis et psalmis et canticis
Music by John Rutter
Words trad. Published by RSCM We hear a distant music – it comes with fuller swell
for the angels here are human, not the shining hosts above
Deep peace of the running wave to you for the drumbeats of the army are the heartbeats of our love
Deep peace of the flowing air to you
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the gentle night to you How Shall I Sing That Majesty?
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you Music by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)
Deep peace of Christ the light of the world to you Words by John Mason
Deep peace of Christ to you
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
Lacrymosa Adoro Te
Music by Camille Saint-Saëns arranged by Music – traditional plainchant arranged

(based on ‘Aquarium’ Words trad.

Words by Robert Prizeman (MCPS) Adoro te devote, latens Deitas
Quae sub his figuris vere latitas
Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit
You are the voice, you are the music that plays, you are the day Quia te contemplans totum defecit

Lacrymosa, dolorosa O memoriale mortis Domini

Voca me, libera me, salva me Panis vivus vitam praestans homini
Praesta meae menti de te vivere
You are the voice that calls in the silence Et te illi semper dulce sapere
You are the light that shines in the dark
You hold me in any sorrow Adoro te devote, adoro
See me through every shadow – Salva me
Jesu quem velatum nunc aspicio
You are the words of the song – you are the light Oro fiat illud quod tam sitio
You are the music that plays – you are the voice Ut te revelata cernens facie
You are the day Visu sim beatus tuae gloriae

You are the words of the song in the sunrise O memoriale mortis Domini
You are the music that plays at the dawn O memoriale mortis
You hold me if I were falling
Hear me if I am calling – Salva me Adoro te, devote latens Deitas
Quae sub his figuris vere latitas
Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit
Quia te contemplans totum defecit

Adoro te, adoro

Lead, Kindly Light Touch the Sky
Words by John Henry Newman Words and music by Ben Crawley (MCPS)
Music by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)
Climb a tree to touch the sky
Lead, kindly light amid the encircling gloom through the leaves I watch the birds fly
Lead thou me on in the softly swaying breeze
The night is dark and I am far from home from my nest among the trees
Lead thou me on
So the golden light dances
Keep thou my feet, I do not ask to see the distant scene, through the pattern of branches
one step enough for me all the colours of autumn, alive

O lux aeterna, lead thou me on As the leaves of evening fall

O lux beata, lead, kindly light, lead me on from my throne above us all
where the faithful blossom flowers
So long thy power has blest me, sure it still here I while away for hour after hour
Will lead me on
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent ‘til Climb a tree to touch the sky
The night is gone

And with the morn those angel faces smile The Fountain
Which I have loved long since and lost a while Music by Frédéric Chopin
(based on Prelude in C minor)
The night is dark and I am far from home Arranged by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)
Words by Robert Prizeman (MCPS)
Lead Thou me home and Ben Crawley (MCPS)
