(R. N. Tagore)

I have come to thee to take thy touch before I begin my day. Let thy eyes rest upon my eyes for a while. Let me take to my work the assurance of thy comradeship my friend. Fill my mind with thy music to last through the desert of noise. Let Thy love's sunshine kiss the peaks of my thoughts and linger in my life's valley where the harvest ripens.

Keep me in the hollow of Thy hand Lead me thro' this wild and stormy land Thou doth guide my feet Though the pathway may be steep Keep me in the hollow of thy hand. Keep me, keep me day by day Guide me, guide me all the way Never, never let me stray Keep me in the hollow of thy hand. Keep me in the center of Thy will. All Thy plan for me may I fulfil As I go my way. Help me Lord from day by day Keep me in the center of Thy will. Keep me in the circle of Thy love Looking down to comfort from above Help me see Thy face As I pray for daily grace Keep me in the circle of Thy love

Like a Sunflower, which follows Every movement of the Sun. So I turn towards you, To follow you, my God. In simplicity and charity, I follow. (2) In simplicity and honesty, I follow. (2) In simplicity and fidelity, I follow. (2)

O give thanks to the Lord for He is good (3) Yes eternal is His love. I will sing to my God never ceasing All my life, I will tell of His wonders He's the maker of all earth and heaven Of the ocean, the seas and all they hold. The Almighty is faithful for ever He is just to the poor and the out-raged It is He who gives bread to the hungry, Who delivers the captives from their chain.

O give thanks to the Lord for He is good (3) Yes eternal is His love. God our Father looks on us with love All the time, All the time. He says, I love you all the time (2) I'll love you forever (3) all the time. He says, I am with you all the time (2) I'm with you forever (3) all the time. He says, I'll help you all the time (2) I'll help you forever (3) all the time.

Just like a child who trusts his father dear And who delights to feel his presence near. Just like a child whose mind has not a doubt And whose heart is never proud. Ch: Here I come, O Lord Here I come, Just like a child Here I come, O Lord Here I come, Just like a child Just like a child so weak who cannot stand But who holds firm and tight his mother's hand Just like a child who sings in bright day light Fearing not the long dark night.

(Chorus)

We are one in the spirit We are one in the Lord (2) And we pray that all unity May one day be restored. Ch: And they'll know We are students by our love We are students by our love By our love, yes they'll know We are students by our love. We will work with each other We will work hand in hand And together we'll spread the news That God is in our land. We will walk with each other We will walk side by side (2) And we pray that all unity May one day be restored.

Praise Him (3) in the morning Praise Him in the morning Praise Him (3) till the sun -goes down. Love Him (3) in the morning Love Him in the morning Love Him (3) till the sun goes down.

Right here in our midst The spirit is moving Right here in our midst As the prophet said it would be Right here in our midst There's a mighty revelation Of the glory of the Lord As the waters cover the sea.

O Lord my God, when I am in awesome wonder, Consider all the works Thy hands have made. I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Thy Power Throughout, the universe displayed, Ch: Then sings my soul, my saviour God to Thee, How great Thou art, how great Thou art. When through the woods, and forest glades I wander And hear the birds, sing sweetly in the trees, When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur, And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, Ref: Into that haven of freedom, my Father, Let my country awake Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls. Where words come out from the depth of truth. Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection. Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sands of dead habit. Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever widening thought and action.

(R.Tagore)

Ch: This is my prayer to thee, my Lord; Strike, strike at the root of penury in my heart. Give me the strength lightly to bear my joys and sorrows. Give me the strength to make my love fruitful in service. Give me the strength never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might. Give me the strength to raise my mind high above daily trifles Give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy will with love.

When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed, When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost, Count your many blessings, name them one by one, And it will surprise you what the Lord has done. Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your blessings, see what God has done! Count your blessings, name them one by one, Count your many blessings, see what God has done. Are you ever burdened with a load of care? Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear? Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly, And you will keep singing as the days go by.

We shall overcome, we shall overcome, We shall overcome some day! o deep in my heart, I do believe That we shall overcome some day! We shall live in peace... We'll walk hand in hand.... We are not afraid (today)....

This little guiding light of mine I'm going to let it shine (3) Let it shine all the time let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel! OH NO! I'm going to let it shine (3) Let it shine all the time let it shine.

Take this little light, round the world I'm going to let it shine (3) Let it shine all the time let it shine.

Make my little light burn for Thee I'm going to let it shine (3) Let it shine all the time let it shine.

Give me oil in my lamp keep me burning, Give me oil in my lamp I pray. Give me oil in my lamp keep me burning, Keep me burning till the end of day Ch: Sing hosana, sing hosana Sing hosana to the King of Kings. Give me oil in my lamp keep me praising. Give me peace in my lamp keep me loving.

Be not dismayed Whatever be tide, God will take care of you Beneath his wings of love abide, God will take care of you. Ch: God will take care of you Through Every day over all the way, He will take care of you, God will take care of you. Through days of toil when heart doth fail, God will take care of you, When dangers fierce your path assail, God will take care of you. All you may need he will provide, God will take care of you, Nothing you ask will be denied. God will take care of you. No matter what may be the test God will take care of you, Lean weary one, upon his breast, God will take care of you.

Make me a channel of your peace Where there is hatred, let me bring Your love Where there is injury, Your pardon Lord And where there's doubt, true faith in You Oh Master, grant that I may never seek So much to be consoled as to console To be understood as to understand To be loved as to love with all my soul Make me a channel of your peace Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope Where there is darkness - only light And where there's sadness, ever joy

Ch: You are with me wherever I go Every moment, your life in me flows You're always there close by my side You are there, O Lord both day and night ---2 You were with me in my mothers' womb You are with me in my days of gloom You helped me stand against all odds And you filled me with your strength, O Lord. Ch: You are with me wherever I go ……

Ch: Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together With cords that cannot be broken. Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together, Bind us together with love. There is only one God, There is only one King; There is only one Body, That is why we sing Ch: Bind us together, Lord……

There comes a time When we heed a certain call When the world must come together as one There are people dying And it's time to lend a hand, to life The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day-by-day That someone, somewhere soon make a change We're all a part of God's great big family And the truth, you know, love is all we need We are the world, We are the children We are the ones who make a brighter day So let's start giving There's a choice we're making We're saving our own lives It's true we'll make a better day, Just you and me Send them your heart So they know that someone cares And their lives will be stronger and free As God has shown us by turning stones to bread And so we all must lend a helping hand

O Queen of the Holy Rosary! Oh bless us as we pray, And offer thee our roses ,In garlands day by day, While from our Father’s garden, With loving hearts and bold, We gather to thine honor, Buds white and red and gold O Queen of the Holy Rosary, Each mystery blends with thine The sacred life of Jesus, In every step divine. Thy soul was His fair garden, Thy virgin breast His throne, Thy thoughts His faithful mirror, Reflecting Him alone.

We are one one in Jesus We are one in the Lord We are one one in Jesus One in heart one in soul Hand in hand we work for Him Together we belong to him His love & peace we’ll only share The people will know how much He care

We praise you Lord with joy, With heart & mind & voice You fill us with unending love, And grace from above You are our father, who is ever near With you beside us, we’ll have no fear You are our father, loving & true, All day & night, watching us through You sent your spirit, with us to stay To guide our steps, and guard our way From day to day, our life renew Drawing us ever, close to you

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good (3) Yes, eternal is his love.

I will sing to my God never ceasing All my life I will tell of his wonders He’s the maker of all earth and heaven Of the oceans, the seas and all they hold Chorus The Almighty is faithful forever He is just to the poor and the outraged It is he who gives bread to the hungry Who delivers the captives from their chains.
