  1. I am the day

    I am the day, soon to be born
    I am the light before the morning

    I am the night, that will be dawn
    I am the end and the beginning

    I am the alpha and omega
    The night and day, the first and last

    Illuminosa, immortalis
    Sancta gloriosa
    Illuminosa, immortalis
    Sancta gloriosa
    In aeterna

    I am the life, soon to begin
    I am the new hope in the morning

    I am the darkness, soon to be light
    I am the rising and the falling

  2. Stay with me

    You are everything I know
    Which ever way I go
    For ever stay with me

    Venite angeli
    Cantate domino

    You see me through when ever I’m afraid
    However far away
    For ever comfort me

    You’re on my side whichever way I choose
    In everything I do
    For ever stay with me

  3. Voca me

    As secret as a dream you call
    As silent as the night for all you cry

    Lacrymosa dies illa
    Dolorosa Domine
    Voca Me

    You whisper in my silent sleep
    You answer to my call when lost I cry

  4. Song of enchantment

    A song of enchantment I sang me there
    In a green green wood by waters fair
    Just as the words came up to me
    I sang it under a wild wood tree

    Widdershins turned I singing it low
    Watching the wild birds come and go
    No cloud in the deep dark blue to be seen
    Under the thick thatch branches green

    Twilight came, silence came
    The planet of evening’s silver flame
    By darkning paths I wandered through
    Thickets trembling with drops of dew

    But the music is lost and the words are gone
    Of the song I sang as I sat along
    Ages and ages have fallen on me
    On the wood and the pool and the elder tree

  5. Ave Verum

    Ave verum corpus natum
    De maria virgine

    Attende Domini et Miserere
    Quia peccavimus tibi

    A silent mystery
    The break of day
    A moment shines across eternity

    A silent harmony
    The sounds of hope
    A moment echoes through eternity

  6. Do not stand

    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 glints in snow,
    I am the sunlight and ripened grain.
    I am the gentle Autumn rain.

    When you awake in the morning hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circling flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there, I do not sleep.

  7. When a knight

    When a knight won his spurs in the stories of old
    he was gentle and brave he was gallant and bold
    with a shield on his arm and a lance in his hand
    for God and for valour he rode through the land

    No charger have I, and no sword by my side
    yet still to adventure and battle I ride
    though back into storyland giants have fled
    and the knights are no more and the dragons are dead

    Let faith be my shield and let joy be my steed
    gainst the dragons of anger the ogres of greed
    and let me set free with the sword of my youth
    from the castle of darkness the power of the truth

  8. A new heaven

    And I saw a new heaven
    For the first earth, and the first earth
    Are passed away

    Illumina, perpetua

    And there shall be no more death
    No crying
    For these are passed away

  9. I vow to thee my country

    I vow to thee, my country, all earthly things above,
    entire and whole and perfect, the service of my love:
    the love that asks no question, the love that stands the test,
    that lays upon the altar the dearest and the best;
    the love that never falters, the love that pays the price,
    the love that makes undaunted the final sacrifice.

    And there’s another country, I’ve heard of long ago,
    most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;
    we may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
    her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
    and soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,
    and her ways are ways of gentleness and all her paths are peace.

  10. Lament

    Jerusalem convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum

    Defecerunt prae lacrimis oculi mei
    conturbata sunt visera mea

    Magna est enim velut mars contritio tua
    quiis mendebitur tui

    Effesum est in terra ie cur meum
    super contritione filiae populi mei
    cum deficeret parvulus et lactens in plateis oppidi

  11. Twilight

    Twilight is stealing over hill and sea
    Vesper bells pealing call us to thee
    Lowly confessing trespass and shame
    Bravely expressing faith in thy name

    Low at thy mercy seat
    Father thy children meet
    Craving thy guidance sweet
    Call to thee

    Call us to thee o’er hill and sea
    Call us to thee

    Praising with one accord
    Hearing thy holy word
    Here let our service Lord
    Call to thee

  12. Be still my soul

    Be still my soul – the Lord is on thy side;
    bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
    leave to thy God to order and provide;
    in every change – he faithful will remain.
    Be still, my soul – thy best thy heavenly Friend
    through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

    Be still my soul – when dearest friends depart,
    and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
    then shalt thou better know his love – his heart,
    who comes to soothe thy sorrow and thy fears.
    Be still, my soul – the waves and winds still know
    his voice who ruled them – while he dwelt below.

    Be still my soul the hour is hastening on
    when we shall be forever with the Lord,
    when disappointment – grief and fear are gone,
    sorrow forgot – love’s purest joys restored,.
    Be still my soul – when change and tears are past,
    all safe and blessed – we shall meet at last.

  13. Adoramus

    Adoramus te rex Gloria
    Cum gaudia infinita

    Can you lift me away from the dark of this day
    Give me courage and help me be free evermore

    Can you guide me once more, give me strength to be sure
    Send me wisdom and help me be free evermore
