Offertory Anthem    Jesu, joy of man’s desiring    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Jesu, joy of man’s desiring,
holy wisdom, love most bright;
drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
soar to uncreated light.

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
with the fire of life impassioned,
striving still to truth unknown,
soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding,
hark, what peaceful music rings;
where the flock, in Thee confiding,
drink of joy from deathless springs.

Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure;
theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.
Thou dost ever lead Thine own
in the love of joys unknown.

Sanctus  S130    Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Communion Motet    Ubi caritas    Jacques Berthier (1923-1994)
Words from the Maundy Thursday liturgy

Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor.
Exsultemus, et in ipso jucundemur. Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum.
Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero.

Where charity and love are, God is there. Christ’s love has gathered us into one.
Let us rejoice and be pleased in him. Let us fear, and let us love the living God.

And may we love each other with a sincere heart.

Voluntary    Ev’ry time I feel the Spirit (1992)    Judith L. Maggs

Judith L. Maggs lives in Western NY and enjoys playing, singing, and writing music. She holds a degree in Music Education from SUNY College at Potsdam, Crane School of Music. Judith taught private piano for over 30 years, and loves to write pieces for her students, sometimes as motivation, sometimes to fit their current needs, and sometimes just for pure fun. Maggs is the Music Director at her local church, and has written several anthems for the choir. She strives to make her pieces very accessible for small choirs, always trying to avoid the “big dramatic high endings.”
