Tomorrow shall be my dancing day - James Burton


Tomorrow shall be my dancing day;

I would my true love did so chance

To see the legend of my play,

To call my true love to my dance;



Sing, oh! my love, oh! my love, my love, my love,

This have I done for my true love


Then was I born of a virgin pure,

Of her I took fleshly substance

Thus was I knit to man's nature

To call my true love to my dance. Refrain


In a manger laid, and wrapped I was

So very poor, this was my chance

Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass

To call my true love to my dance. Refrain


Then afterwards baptized I was;

The Holy Ghost on me did glance,

My Father’s voice heard from above,

To call my true love to my dance. Refrain


Into the desert I was led,

Where I fasted without substance;

The Devil bade me make stones my bread,

To have me break my true love's dance. Refrain


For thirty pence Judas me sold,

His covetousness for to advance:

Mark whom I kiss, the same do hold!

The same is he shall lead the dance. Refrain


Before Pilate the Jews me brought,

Where Barabbas had deliverance;

They scourged me and set me at nought,

Judged me to die to lead the dance. Refrain


Then on the cross hanged I was,

Where a spear my heart did glance;

There issued forth both water and blood,

To call my true love to my dance. Refrain


Then down to hell I took my way

For my true love's deliverance,

And rose again on the third day,

Up to my true love and the dance. Refrain


Then up to heaven I did ascend,

Where now I dwell in sure substance

On the right hand of God, that man

May come into the general dance. Refrain

The Spirit of the Lord - Edward Elgar (1857-1934)


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because He hath anointed me to

preach the gospel to the poor;

He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,

to preach deliverance to the captives

and recovering of sight to the blind,

to preach the acceptable year of the Lord;

to give unto them that mourn

a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,

the garment of praise

for the spirit of heaviness;

That they might be called trees of righteousness,

the planting of the Lord that He might be glorified.


For as the earth bringeth forth her bud,

and as the garden causeth the

things that are sown in it to spring forth;

So the Lord God will cause

righteousness and praise to

spring forth before all nations.


Text: Isaiah 61 vv. 1–3, 11



Vidi aquam - Michael McCarthy


Vidi aquam egredientem de templo, a latere dextro, alleluia:

Et omnes ad quos pervenit aqua ista, salvi facti sunt,

Et dicent: alleluia, alleluia.


I saw water flowing out of the Temple, from its right side, Alleluia:

And all who came to this water were saved,

And they shall say: Alleluia, Alleluia.

This little light of mine - Moses Hogan (1957-2003)


This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
My God gave it to me, I’m gonna let it shine.

In my home, all over the world, I’m gonna let it shine.
