For someone who asked.

The music/lyric for the hymns I chose:

Entrance: All ye who seek a comfort sure.

All ye who seek a comfort sure
in trouble and distress,
whatever sorrow vex the mind,
or guilt the soul oppress:

Jesus, who gave himself for you
upon the cross to die,
opens to you his sacred heart;
oh, to that heart draw nigh.

Ye hear how kindly he invites;
ye hear his words so blest:
'all ye that labor come to me,
and I will give you rest.'

Jesus, thou joy of saints on high,
thou hope of sinners here,
attracted by those loving words
to thee I lift my prayer.

Wash thou my wounds in that dear blood,
which forth from thee doth flow;
new grace, new hope inspire, a new
and better heart bestow.

Sung to the hymn tune Dominus Regit Me.

Offertory: O Heart of Jesus, holy ark;

O Heart of Jesus, holy ark
That holds the later law divine,
Not as of old, a service dark,
But mercy, grace, and love benign.

Thou art indeed the dwelling-place,
Of God’s mild law and tender might,
The temple of outpouring grace
That radiates all the world with light.

Eternal mercy willed the blow
That gave the wounds, O Heart, to thee;
That man should ever feel and know
The love that suffered on the Tree.

For Christ, eternal Priest and Lord,
Offers his love by holy sign
Upon the Cross and at the Board,
The two-fold Sacrifice divine.

We love thee, Jesus, Lord most high,
We lift our hearts to thee above,
And to thy sacred bosom fly,
The everlasting home of love.

All praise and power and glory be
To God the Father and the Son,
And, Holy Spirit, unto thee;
For ever reigning Three and One. Amen.

Sung to whatever tune is used for "Jesu, thou Joy of Loving hearts"*
*EDIT* It's Wareham.

Communion: God's mercies I will ever sing.

God's mercies I will ever sing;
and with my mouth I shall
Thy faithfulness make to be known
to generations all.

For mercy shall be built, said I,
for ever to endure;
Thy faithfulness, ev'n in the heav'ns,
thou wilt establish sure.

Great fear in meeting of the saints
is due unto the Lord;
And he of all about him should
with rev'rence be ador'd.

Justice and judgment of thy throne
are made the dwelling-place;
Mercy, accompany'd with truth,
shall go before thy face.

Sung to the tune St.Columba

Recessional:Sweet Sacrament Divine:

Sweet Sacrament divine,
hid in thine earthly home;
lo! round thy lowly shrine,
with suppliant hearts we come;
Jesus, to thee our voice we raise
In songs of love and heartfelt praise
sweet Sacrament divine.

Sweet Sacrament of peace,
dear home of every heart,
where restless yearnings cease,
and sorrows all depart.
there in thine ear, all trustfully,
we tell our tale of misery,
sweet Sacrament of peace.

Sweet Sacrament of rest,
ark from the ocean's roar,
within thy shelter blest
soon may we reach the shore;
save us, for still the tempest raves,
save, lest we sink beneath the waves:
sweet Sacrament of rest.

Sweet Sacrament divine,
earth's light and jubilee,
in thy far depths doth shine
the Godhead's majesty;
sweet light, so shine on us, we pray
that earthly joys may fade away:
sweet Sacrament divine.

Sung to Divine Mysteries.**

I'm sad, because we were supposed to go over the music tonight,but the meeting was canceled.
Which is okay,because I need to print the lyrics and music, andrelevant quotes from Vatican II on gregorian chant.(What, d'ja I was going to to NOT do that? ) We are'nt going to sing much chant besides the ordinary,but I still want to spread the news.

*Or I might just play that hymn.
** Divine Mysteries is a really, really complicated harmony.
