  1. Once an angel

    Remember a time long ago
    who will tell the story of the lives we knew?
    Long passed the dreams that we shared
    will their story pass away, the words be lost?

    Once an angel, such an angel, once an angel at our side, long ago

    Remember the songs that we sang
    will the memory of their music fade away?
    No more the voices we knew
    will their story pass away, the words be lost?

    Once an angel, such an angel, once an angel at our side, long ago

    Still an angel shall they evermore remain for evermore

  2. Let me make songs

    Let me make songs for the people
    make songs for the old and young
    Songs to stir like a battle cry
    Where ever they are sung

    Not for the clashing of sabres
    for carnage nor for strife
    But songs to thrill the hearts of men
    with more abundant life

    Let me make songs for the children
    before their footsteps stray
    Sweet songs of love and duty
    to float along their way

    Our world so worn and weary
    needs music pure and strong
    to hush the jangle and discord
    of sorrow pain and wrong

    Let me make songs for the weary
    amid life’s fever and fret
    ’til hearts relax their tension
    and careworn brows forget

    where music soothes all our sorrows
    ’til war and hurt shall cease
    and hearts of men grow tender
    and girdle the world with peace

    Let me make songs for the people
    make songs for the old and young
    Songs to stir like a battle cry
    where ever they are sung

    Not for the clashing of sabres
    for carnage nor for strife
    But songs to thrill the hearts of men
    with more abundant life

  3. If

    If at the sound of a wish the summer sun would shine
    and if just a smile would do to brush all the clouds from the sky

    If at the blink of an eye the autumn leaves would whirl
    and if you could sigh a deep sigh to scatter them over the earth

    I’d blink my eyes and wave my arms
    I’d wish a wish to stop all harm

    If at the wave of a hand the winter snows would start
    and if you could just light a candle to change people’s feelings and hearts

    I’d whisper love in every land to every child woman and man
    That’s what I’d do if my wishes come true

  4. Cum dederit

    Cum dederit dilectis suis somnum
    Ecce haereditas Domini filii
    merces fructus ventris

    “For so he giveth his beloved sleep
    Lo, children and the fruit of the womb
    are an heritage and gift that cometh of the Lord”

  5. Total praise

    Lord, I will lift mine eyes to the hills
    knowing my help is coming from You
    Your peace, You give me in time of the storm
    You are the source of my strength
    You are the strength of my life
    I lift my hands in total praise to You
    Amen

  6. Ave Maria (Schubert)

    Ave Maria, gratia plena
    Dominus tecum
    Benedicta tu in mulieribus
    Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus

    Sancta Maria, Mater Dei
    Ora pro nobis peccatoribus
    Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae
    Ora
    Amen

    “Hail Mary full of grace
    The Lord is with thee
    Blessed art thou
    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”

  7. Sing for our world

    Coniuncta
    (Join together)

    Come hear our voices that sing in the darkness
    Joining in song roll the night time away
    Love peace and freedom no boundaries between us
    Rising together all peoples as one

    Feel the pulse of beating hearts dancing in rhythm
    Lift up your eyes to the light of the dawn
    Come raise your voice so the angels can hear us
    Make a song to be as one

    Libertatem
    (Freedom)

    Joining our voices in unceasing chorus
    Singing together our song for the world
    Love peace and freedom no boundaries between us
    Rising together all nations as one

    Feel the pulse of beating hearts dancing in rhythm
    Lift up your eyes to the light of the dawn
    Come raise your voice so the angels can hear us
    Share our dream to be as one

    Sing for our world and our hope for tomorrow

    Libertatem, unitatem
    (Freedom, unity)

    Feel the pulse of beating hearts dancing in rhythm
    Lift up your eyes to the light of the dawn
    Come raise your voice so the angels can hear us
    Make a song to be as one

    Sing for our world and our hope for tomorrow

    Libertatem

    SING!

  8. Nearer my God

    Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee
    e’en though it be a cross that raiseth me

    Still all my song shall be nearer my God to thee
    nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee

    Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down
    darkness be over me, my rest a stone

    yet in my dreams I’d be nearer my God to thee
    nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee

    Or if on joyful wing, cleaving the sky
    sun moon and stars forgot, upwards I fly

    Still all my song shall be nearer my God to thee
    nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee

  9. Vespera

    Te lucis ante terminum
    Rerum creator poscimus
    Ut solita clementia
    Sis praesul ad custodiam

    Before the ending of the day
    creator of the world we pray
    That with thy wonted favour thou
    wouldst be our guard and keeper now

    Keep me as the apple of an eye
    Hide me under the shadow of thy wings
    Hide me

    The heaven soars with voices above
    The skies resound the power of thy love
    The stars shine out their glorious light
    Shine through our gloom and take us on high

    Keep me as the apple of an eye
    Hide me under the shadow of thy wings
    Hide me

    Sancto spiritu
    Rerum creator

    Te lucis ante terminum

  10. O Lord support us

    O Lord, support us all the day long of this troublous life
    until the shades lengthen and the evening comes
    the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over
    and our work is done

    Then Lord, in thy mercy
    grant us a safe lodging, a holy rest
    and peace at the last
    Amen

  11. Sacris solemnis

    Sacris solemnis
    Iuncta sint gaudia
    Corda et voces
    Et opera
    Recedant vitera
    Nova sint omnia
    Sacris solemnis
    Gaudia

    Te trina deitas
    Unaque poscimus
    Sacris solemnis
    Gaudia

    Corda voces opera
    Lucem ad inhabitas

    At this our solemn feast
    Let holy joys abound
    In every act, voice and heart
    Let ancient rites depart
    And all be new around

  12. Deep peace (Gaelic blessing)

    Deep peace of the running wave to you
    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
    Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
    Deep peace of Christ the light of the world to you
    Deep peace of Christ to you

  13. Nunc dimittis

    Lord now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace
    according to thy word
    For mine eyes have seen thy salvation
    which thou hast prepared before the face of all people

    To be a light to lighten the gentiles
    and to be the glory of thy people Israel

    Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
    As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be
    world without end
    Amen

  14. Home

    Can there be a shining in the shadows
    or may we see the flicker of a spark
    is there calm amid the storm and madness
    must we shelter ever in the dark

    Not a bird on the wing, nor a song they could sing
    for the loved ones we see no more, their suffering and pain
    but the sounds far and near, in the air plain and clear
    are the voices for ever singing love lives again

    for now a new day wakes the dawn, spreading its light across the sky
    when all misery and sadness will pass away
    for then we’ll find the harmony, stirring our hearts across the land
    through the sighing and the weeping we find our way our way back home

    In our mourning can we hold together
    how can we face a future all alone
    for the hope we hold amid the crying
    is the dream we find a way back home

    Not a bird on the wing, nor a song they could sing
    for the loved ones we see no more, their suffering and pain
    but the sounds far and near, in the air plain and clear
    are the voices for ever singing love lives again

  15. Lux aeterna

    In paradisum deducant te angeli
    in tuo adventu suscipiat te martyres
    et perducante in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem

    Lux aeterna luceat eis domine

    “May the angels lead you into paradise
    may the martyrs receive you at your arrival
    and lead you to the holy city Jerusalem”
