Track Name: Introit
I am risen and behold I am with you hallelujah
You have placed your hand upon me, hallelujah, hallelujah
oh God how wonderfully you know me, hallelujah, hallelujah

oh Lord you search me and you know me
you know when I sit down and rise up again, hallelujah

behold Lord you know all things both ancient and new
you have conceived me and laid your hand upon me, hallelujah

glory be to the father of love
and to the son who is risen risen from the dead
and to the spirit giving us new life
as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be
Track Name: The Hymn Of Joy (Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee)
all your works with joy surround you
earth and heaven reflect they rays
stars and angels sing around you
center of unbroken praise
melt the clouds of sin and sadness
drive the doubt of dark away
giver of immortal gladness
fill us with your light

joyful, joyful, we adore thee
God of glory, Lord of love
hearts unfold like flowers before thee
opening to the sun above
fill us with the light

thou art giving and forgiving
ever blessing ever blest
wellspring of the joy of living
ocean depth of happy rest
thou the mother, Christ our brother
all who live in love are thine
teach us how to love each other
lift us to the joy divine
Track Name: Magnificat
anima mea magnificat dominum

my soul proclaims your greatness o God
and my spirit rejoices in you my savior
you’ve looked with favor on the lowest of the low
behold beyond all generations I am blessed
the almighty has done great things for me and holy is your name
your mercy reaches from age to age for those who fear you
you have shown strength with your arm
you have scattered the proud in their conceit

you have deposed the mighty from their thrones
and raised the lowly to high places
you have filled the hungry with good things
while you have sent the rich away empty
you have come to the aid of Israel your servant, mindful of your mercy
the promise you made to our ancestors, to Sarah, and Abraham, and Hagar, and their descendants
Track Name: Shekinah
all who love strive on for justice
weary hearts belong to thee
Holy Ghost always inside you
speaking into old beliefs
we creations long to be as thou be
whole in class, color, and deed
evermore and evermore
Track Name: Conserva Me, Domine
protect me o God for I take refuge in you
I have said to the LORD you are my Lord
my good above all other
all my delight is upon the godly that are in the land
upon those who are noble among the people
but those who run after other gods
shall have their troubles multiplied
their libations of blood I will not offer
nor take the names of their gods upon my lips
o LORD, you are my portion and my cup
it is you who uphold my lot
my boundaries enclose a pleasant land
indeed, I have a goodly heritage
I will bless the LORD who gives me counsel
my heart teaches me, night after night
I have set the LORD always before me
because he is at my right hand I shall not fall
my heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices
my body also shall rest in hope
for you will not abandon me to the grave
nor let your holy one see the pit
you will show me the path of life
in your presence there is fullness of joy
and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore
Track Name: I Am Your Body In The World
you are the love in me
closer than my breath
I am your body in the world
Track Name: Alleluia! Jesus Has Risen; Earth and All Stars
earth and all stars, loud rushing planets
sing to the Lord a new song
hail, wind, and rain, loud blowing snowstorm
sing to the Lord a new song

Jesus has risen and we shall arise
give God the glory alleluia

alleluia, Jesus has risen
trumpet resounding in glorious light
splendor the lam, heaven forever
oh what a miracle God has in sight

walking the way, Christ in the center
telling the story to open our eyes
breaking our bread, giving us glory
Jesus our blessing our constant surprise

cherubim sing, o grave be open
clothe us in wonder adorn us in light
Track Name: Exsultet
rejoice now, heavenly hosts and choirs of angels
and let your trumpets shout salvation
for the victory of our mighty king
rejoice and sing now, all the earth
bright with a glory and splendor
the dark is vanquished by our risen king
rejoice and be glad mother church
and let your holy courts, in radiant light
resound with the praises of your people

this is the night, when you brought our fathers, the children
of Israel, out of bondage in Egypt, and led them through the
Red Sea on dry land
this is the night, when all who believe in Christ are delivered
from the gloom of sin, and are restored to grace and holiness
of life
this is the night, when Christ broke the bonds of death and hell,
and rose victorious from the grave
