Sheet Music:  SCAN


1 If the world from you withhold
of its silver and gold,
And you have to get along with meager fare;
Just remember in His word.
How He feeds the little bird.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
Refrain:
Leave it there, leave it there, leave it there, leave it there,
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there, leave it there.
If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there, leave it there.
2 If your body suffers pain,
and your health you can’t regain,
And your soul is almost sinking in despair;
Jesus knows the pain you feel.
He can save and He can heal.[Refrain]
3 When your enemies assail,
and your heart begins to fail,
Don’t forget that God in heaven answers prayer.
He will make a way for you,
and will lead you safely through.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Refrain]
4 When your youthful days are gone,
and old age is stealing on.
And your body bends beneath the weight of care;
He will never leave you then,
He’ll go with you to the end.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Refrain]

Recordings:   PIANO    PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS


1 I was sinking deep in sin,
Far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within,
Sinking to rise no more;
But the master of the sea
Heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me
Now safe am I.
Refrain:
Love lifted even me,
Love lifted even me,
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.
2 All my heart to Him I give,
Ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live,
Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true
Merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too,
To Him belongs. [Refrain]
3 Souls in danger, look above,
Jesus completely saves;
He will lift you by His love
Out of the angry waves.
He’s the master of the sea,
Billows His will obey;
He your savior wants to be,
Be saved today. [Refrain]

Hymnal 1982 (605) What does the Lord require


Vox Barnabas: QUARTET    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS

Music only recordings:   PIANO    PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR     BASS



CHOIR PRACTICE SEQUENCE



What does the Lord require for praise and offering?
What sacrifice desire, or tribute bid you bring?
Do justly; love mercy; walk humbly with your God.

Rulers of earth give ear! Should you not justice show?
Will God your pleading hear, while crime and cruelty grow?
Do justly; love mercy; walk humbly with your God.

Still down the ages ring the prophets stern commands.
To merchant, worker, king he brings God's high demands.
Do justly; love mercy; walk humbly with your God.

How shall my soul fulfill God's law so hard and high?
Let Christ endue our will with grace to fortify.
Then justly, in mercy, we'll humbly walk with God.




Hymnal 1982 (594): God of grace and God of glory


Recordings:    PIANO    PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS

Sheet Music:  SCAN


1 God of grace and God of glory,

on thy people pour thy power;

crown thine ancient Church’s story;

bring her bud to glorious flower.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the facing of this hour,
for the facing of this hour.

2 Lo! the hosts of evil round us
scorn thy Christ, assail his ways!
From the fears that long have bound us
free our hearts to faith and praise:
grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the living of these days,
for the living of these days.

3 Cure thy children’s warring madness,
bend our pride to thy control;
shame our wanton, selfish gladness,
rich in things and poor in soul.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal,
lest we miss thy kingdom’s goal.

4 Save us from weak resignation
to the evils we deplore;
let the gift of thy salvation
be our glory evermore.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
serving thee whom we adore,
serving thee whom we adore.

Hymnal 1982 (581): Where charity and love prevail


Recordings:    PIANO    PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS


Where charity and love prevail, 

there God is ever found; 

Brought here together by Christ’s love, 
by love are we thus bound.

With grateful joy and holy fear 
God’s charity we learn; 
Let us with heart and mind and soul 
now love God in return.

Forgive we now each other’s faults 
as we our faults confess; 
And let us love each other well 
in Christian holiness.

Let strife among us be unknown, 
let all contention cease; 
Be God’s the glory that we seek, 
be ours God’s holy peace.

Let us recall that in our midst 
dwells God’s begotten Son; 
As members of his body joined, 
we are in Christ made one.

No race or creed can love exclude, 
if honored be God’s name; 
Our family embraces all 
whose Father is the same.

2 Dark midnight was my cry,
Dark midnight was my cry,
Dark midnight was my cry.
Give me Jesus. [Refrain]
3 O when I come to die,
O when I come to die,
O when I come to die,
Give me Jesus. [Refrain]

1 Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, your great Name we praise. 
2 Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might;
thy justice like mountains high soaring above
thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love. 
3 To all life thou givest, to both great and small;
in all life thou livest, the true life of all;
we blossom and flourish, like leaves on the tree,
then wither and perish; but nought changeth thee.
4 Thou reignest in glory, thou rulest in light,
thine angels adore thee, all veiling their sight;
all laud we would render: O help us to see
'tis only the splendor of light hideth thee.

shall our hearts forget his promise,
"I am with you evermore"?

thou on earth our food, our stay!
Alleluia! here the sinful
