Opening Hymn 225 vv. 1 & 3    Hail thee, festival day    Salve festa dies

Refrain:
Hail thee, festival day!
blest day that art hallowed for ever,
day when the Holy Ghost
shone in the world with God’s grace.

Lo, in the likeness of fire, on those who await his appearing,
he whom the Lord foretold suddenly, swiftly, descends: Refrain

Hark! for in myriad tongues Christ’s own, his chosen apostles,
preach to the ends of the earth Christ and his wonderful works: Refrain

Sequence Hymn 661 vv. 1 & 4    They cast their nets in Galilee     Georgetown

They cast their nets in Galilee
just off the hills of brown;
such happy, simple fisherfolk,
before the Lord came down.

The peace of God, it is no peace,
but strife closed in the sod.
Yet let us pray for but one thing—
the marvelous peace of God.

Music at Offertory     Veni Creator Spiritus       Plainsong
Words: Latin, 9th century
Erica Maas, soprano

Come Creator Spirit, visit the souls of Thy people,
Fill with grace from on high the hearts which Thou hast created.

Inflame our senses with Thy light, pour Thy love into our hearts,
Strengthen our weak bodies with lasting power.

Grant us by Thee to know the Father and to know the Son,
And Thee, Spirit of both, may we always believe.

To God the Father be glory, to the Son Who rose from the dead
And to the Comforter, for all ages. Amen.

Closing Hymn  vv. 1, 2 & 3    We shall overcome

We shall overcome, we shall overcome,
We shall overcome some day;
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
We shall overcome some day.

We’ll walk hand in hand, we’ll walk hand in hand,
We’ll walk hand in hand, today.
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
We’ll walk hand in hand, today.

God is on our side, God is on our side,
God is on our side, today.
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
God is on our side, today.
