Veni veni Emmanuel
Captivum solve Israel

O come O come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the son of God appear
Rejoice rejoice
Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel

O come thou day-spring
Come and cheer our spirits
By thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice rejoice
Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel

Oh——————

Come thou long expected Jesus
Born to set thy people free
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in thee
Israel’s strength and consolation
Hope of all the earth thou art
Dear desire of every nation
Joy of every longing heart

Born thy people to deliver
Born a child and yet a king
Born to reign in us forever
Now thy gracious kingdom bring
By thine own eternal spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to thy glorious throne
Rejoice rejoice
Emmanuel is come to thee O Israel

Christ is come to thee O Israel

Veni veni Emmanuel

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD

ADAPTED FROM THE SINGING OF THREE PEOPLE IN HARDIN
COUNTRY, KY
ADAPTED BY JOHN JACOB NILES
ARRANGED BY PETER LINK

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED

HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT OUR JESUS
HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT HIS FATE
HOW HIS MAMMY WENT TO THAT STABLE
ON THAT CHRISTMAS EVE SO LATE
WINDS WERE BLOWING COWS WERE LOWING
STARS WERE GLOWING GLOWING GLOWING

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED

TO THE MANGER CAME THEN WISE MEN
BRINGING THINGS FROM HIN AND YON
FOR THE MOTHER AND THE FATHER
AND THE BLESSED LITTLE SON
MILKMAIDS LEFT THEIR FIELDS AND FLOCKS
AND SAT BESIDE THE ASS AND OX

JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED
ALL THE EVIL FOLK ON EARTH
SLEEP IN FEATHERS AT THEIR BIRTH
JESUS JESUS REST YOUR HEAD
YOU HAS GOT A MANGER BED

SOME CHILDREN SEE HIM ALMOND-EYED
WITH SKIN OF GOLDEN HUE

SOME CHILDREN SEE HIM DARK AS THEY
SWEET MARY’S SON TO WHOM THEY PRAY
SOME CHILDREN SEE HIM DARK AS THEY
AND OH THEY LOVE HIM SO

THE CHILDREN IN EACH DIFFERENT PLACE
WILL SEE THE BABY JESUS’ FACE

AND FILLED WITH HOLY LIGHT

PORQUE ÉL ENTRÓ EN EL MUNDO Y EN LA HISTORIA
PORQUE ÉL QUEBRÓ EL SILENCIO Y LA AGONÍA
PORQUE LLENÓ LA TIERRA DE SU GLORIA
PORQUE FUE LUZ EN NUESTRA NOCHE FRÍA
PORQUE ÉL NACIÓ EN UN PESEBRE OSCURO
PORQUE ÉL VIVIÓ SEMBRANDO AMOR Y VIDA
PORQUE ÉL PARTIÓ LOS CORAZONES DUROS
Y LEVANTÓ LAS ALMAS ABATIDAS

POR ESO ES QUE HOY TENEMOS ESPERANZA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY LUCHAMOS CON PORFÍA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY MIRAMOS CON CONFIANZA
AL PORVENIR EN ESTA TIERRA MÍA
FOR THIS TODAY WE FACE TOMORROW
FOR THIS WE BEAR THE CROSS AND CARRY ON
FOR THIS TODAY WE OVERCOME OUR SORROW
AND FACE THE WORLD

BECAUSE HE CAME AND LIVED THE AGE OLD STORY
BECAUSE HE SPOKE AND HEALED THE WOUNDS OF MILLIONS
BECAUSE HE BLESSED THE EARTH WITH ALL HIS GLORY
BECAUSE HIS LIGHT ILLUMINATES THE NIGHT
BECAUSE HE WEPT A BABY IN A MANGER
BECAUSE HE LIVED AND SOWED THE FRUITS OF LIFE
BECAUSE HE HEALED THE HARDENED HEART
AND FACED THE DANGER
HE GAVE HIS LIFE TO SHOW US ALL THE WAY

POR ESO ES QUE HOY TENEMOS ESPERANZA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY LUCHAMOS CON PORFÍA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY MIRAMOS CON CONFIANZA
AL PORVENIR EN ESTA TIERRA MÍA
FOR THIS TODAY WE FACE TOMORROW
FOR THIS WE BEAR THE CROSS AND CARRY ON
FOR THIS TODAY WE OVERCOME OUR SORROW
AND FACE THE WORLD

Él atacó a ambiciosos mercaderes.
Sí!

Él exaltó a los niños y las mujeres
Maravillioso!

Él levantado!

PORQUE UNA AURORA VIO SU GRAN VICTORIA
SOBRE LA MUERTE EL MIEDO Y LAS MENTIRAS
YA NADA PUEDE DETENER SU HISTORIA
NI DE SU REINO ETERNO LA VENIDA
AND WHEN THE SEA AWOKE
HE STOOD THERE IN THE MORNING
AND CALLING ALL WHO LABORED
COME AND DINE WITH ME
AND BREAKING BREAD WITH THEM
HE OFFERED THEM FAIR WARNING
HE WHISPERED FEED MY SHEEP AND FOLLOW ME

FOR THIS TODAY WE FACE TOMORROW
FOR THIS WE BEAR THE CROSS AND CARRY ON
FOR THIS TODAY WE OVERCOME OUR SORROW
AND FACE THE WORLD
POR ESO ES QUE HOY TENEMOS ESPERANZA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY LUCHAMOS CON PORFÍA
POR ESO ES QUE HOY MIRAMOS CON CONFIANZA
EL PORVENIR

There Is A Balm In Gilead

Lyrics: Traditional based on Jeremiah 8:22
Additional Lyrics by Peter Link & Clara M. Brooks
Arranged by Peter Link and Julia Wade
Background Vocals Written, Arranged and Produced by John Danny Madden

Sometimes I feel discouraged
And think my work’s in vain
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

They came in search of healing
They came in such despair
With lame and halt and withered
With more than life could bear

He healed the leper and the sinner
And he chased the clouds away
He healed the deaf the dumb the blind
Christ’s with us here today

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

The heav’nly touch of spirit
Has wondrous healing power
To banish your diseases
Be healed this very hour

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul
To heal the soul
There is a balm in Gilead

He raised the dead he freed us
He holds us in his care
He is the balm of Gilead
Yet Christ is everywhere

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

Be Thou My Vision

Music: Traditional Irish Melody
Versified by Eleanor H. Hull, 1912
Background Vocals Arranged and Produced by Margaret Dorn

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
And Thou my true word
I ever with Thee
And Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father
And I thy true son
Thou in me dwelling
And I with Thee one

Riches I need 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
My 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

The Palms
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

On the way to Jerusalem
Thousands gathered to watch him go by
On the way to jerusalem
There on the road
He carried the load of this world
As the colt carried him on his back
Colt and rider
Colt and rider
Colt and rider
On the dusty road

These are the palms of peace
Given in these times of strife
These are the palms we gathered
Thanking you for your life

These are the palms of joy
Given in these times of trial
These are the palms of homage
Bearing you mile to mile

So lay down the palms
Make the earth clean and pure
Lay down the palms
Comes now the Christ
Comes now the cure

These are the palms of dreams
Given in these times of doubt
These are the gifts we bring you
For casting the shadows out

Colt and rider
hosanna in the highest
Colt and rider
hosanna in the highest
Colt and rider
hosanna hosanna hosanna hosanna
On the dusty road

Hosanna hosanna hosanna hosanna
Hosanna hosanna hosanna hosanna

Song Of Easter
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Weep no more
The Lord has risen
Spread the word
A new age wakes
Love has rolled
The stone of sorrow
Light pours forth
Now as the morning breaks

So weep no more
The night has ended
Have you heard
The Christ is here
Joy springs forth
As hope eternal
God’s great gift
Now is forever near

Hallelujah

Angels play on your trumpets
And children raise up your voices
And all mankind sing forth
Flowers will bloom in the desert
And trees will dance in the moonlight
And stars will laugh in the heavens above
The clouds roll back
As the world is bathed in love

So weep no more
The Lord has risen
Spread the word
A new age wakes
Love pours forth
A new tomorrow
And all is light
Now as the morning breaks

Hallelujah

Weep no more
The Lord he has risen
Spread the word
Hallelujah
Sing the song
The sweet song of Easter
Love pours forth now as the morning breaks

Hallelujah

Oh weep no more
The Lord he has risen
Spread the word
Hallelujah
Sing the song
The song of Easter
Love pours forth to the world

Hallelujah

The Gift
I Corinthians 12
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

There are diversities of gifts
But the same spirit
There are differences of ministries
But the same lord
There are infinite activities
But it is the same god
The same god who works all in all

And to one is given the word of
Wisdom
To another the word of knowledge
To another a simple faith
To another the gift of healing
To another the working of miracles
To another the gift of prophecy

Yea though the gifts be many
The source be one
And the giving goes on endlessly
The giving’s never done

These gifts are god’s love in action
And it’s all for the healing of the
World

There are diversities of gifts
But the same giver
There are differences of ministries
But the same truth
There are infinite activities
But it is the same god
The same god who works all in all

And to one is given the gift of music
To another the gift of patience
To another an inner joy
To another the grace of movement
To another the gift of integrity
To so many a turn at motherhood

Yea though the gifts be many
The source be one
Yes the giving goes on endlessly
The giving’s never done

These gifts are god’s love in action
And it’s all for the healing of the
World
