Description

For Congregation, SATB Choir, and Organ. Rite II. Lord, Have Mercy (three and nine-fold); Gloria Susanni, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord; Alleluia, Christ, Our Passover (Lenten version). Beautiful service, suitable for anytime, but with Lenten options. Long one of SJMP's most popular settings, Bill has added a Gloria to this service (for choir, soprano solo, and congregational refrain) and it is lovely! This is a new paraphrased text adapted by Susan Anderson-Smith. Give it a lo,Ok! Of course, all the congregational files are in the ZIP (EXTRAS) download.

Lyrics

Gloria Susanni

Refrain: Glory to God in the highest
and peace to God's people on earth.




O God, heavenly One, eternal God and Abba,
we worship you, we give you thanks,

we praise you for your glory.   Refrain.



Christ, our desire, embodying God,
bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh,

greater than human wisdom,
stronger than human pride,
full of our redemption,

bearing away the sin of the world,
have mercy on us;
Beloved One, 
bearing away the sin of the world,
receive our prayer.   Refrain.



For you alone are holy, you alone our desire.
You alone, O Christ, with the Holy Spirit,
are radiant with the glory of God.   Refrain.
