PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART
Merciful Jesus, I consecrate myself today and always to Your Most Sacred Heart.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore, that I may ever love You more and more.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You!
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like Yours.
(12NN) ENTRANCE: O COME, O COME, EMMANUEL
O come, O come, Emmanuel, And ransom captive Israel, That mourns in lonely exile here, Until the Son of God appear. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel.
O come, Thou Dayspring, from on high, And cheer us by Thy drawing nigh; Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, And death's dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel
O come, Adonai, Lord of might, Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height, In ancient times didst give the law In cloud and majesty and awe. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel.
(12NN) OFFERTORY: O COME DIVINE MESSIAH
O come, divine Messiah! The world in silence waits the day When hope shall sing its triumph And sadness flee away
Sweet Savior, haste Come, come to earth Dispel the night and show your face And bid us hail the dawn of grace
O come, divine Messiah! The world in silence waits the day When hope shall sing its triumph And sadness flees away
Thou come in peace and meekness
And lowly will thy cradle be
All hail in human weakness
Thy majesty we’ll see
O Christ, whom nations sigh for Whom priest and prophet long foretold Come break the captive fetters Redeem the long-lost fold
(12NN) COMMUNION: HOLY DARKNESS
Holy darkness, blessed night, heaven’s answer hidden from our sight. As we await you, O God of silence, we embrace your holy night.
I have tried you in fires of affliction; I have taught your soul to grieve. In the barren soil of your loneliness, there I will plant my seed.
I have taught you the price of compassion; you have stood before the grave. Though my love can seem like a raging storm, this is the love that saves.
Were you there when I raised up the mountains? Can you guide the morning star? Does the hawk take flight when you give command? Why do you doubt my pow’r?
In your deepest hour of darkness I will give you wealth untold. When the silence stills your spirit, will my riches fill your soul.
As the watchman waits for morning, and the bride awaits her groom, so we wait to hear your footsteps as we rest beneath your moon.
(12NN) THANKSGIVING: SPIRIT SONG
Oh let the Son of God enfold you With His Spirit and His love Let Him fill your heart and satisfy your soul Oh let Him have the things that hold you And His Spirit like a dove Will descend upon your life and make you whole Chorus Jesus, oh Jesus Come and fill Your lambs Jesus, oh Jesus Come and fill Your lambs
2. Oh come and sing this song with gladness As your hearts are filled with joy Lift your hands in sweet surrender to His name Oh give Him all your tears and sadness Give Him all your years of pain And you'll enter into life in Jesus' name Chorus Jesus, oh Jesus Come and fill Your lambs Jesus, oh Jesus Come and fill Your lambs
(12NN) RECESSIONAL: THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE
1. Lord, I come to You Let my heart be changed, renewed Flowing from the grace That I found in You Lord, I've come to know The weaknesses I see in me Will be stripped away By the power of Your love
Hold me close Let Your love surround me Bring me near Draw me to Your side And as I wait I'll rise up like the eagle And I will soar with You Your Spirit leads me on In the power of Your love Hold me close Let Your love surround me Bring me near Draw me to Your side And as I wait I'll rise up like the eagle And I will soar with You Your Spirit leads me on In the power of Your love
And I will soar with You Your Spirit leads me on In the power of Your love
