More Lyrics 'A Noble Work'

She went in haste
 
She went in haste
The grace of the Spirit does not delay
Her heart carried a secret she needed to share
What wonderful news yet burdensome too
She went in haste
 
Blessed are you among women she heard
And blessed is the fruit of your womb
Yes, God who is mighty has done me great things
Holy his name
Her promise confirmed, her heart understood
She poured out her great song of joy
Yes, God who is mighty has done me great things
Holy his name, Holy his name
 
We go in haste
The grace of the Spirit does not delay
Our hearts open to others we meet on the way
Touched by the mystery of life as it is
We go in haste
 
Blessed are you, poor in spirit he said
And blessed are the pure of heart
Yes, God who is mighty has done us great things
Holy his name
His promises true and will be fulfilled
Our lives he holds in his hands
Yes, God who is mighty has done us great things
Holy his name, Holy his name
 
She went in haste
We go in haste
She went in haste
 
Blessed Communion
 
Lord you are present to us
And we are present to you
Through this holy anointing
A Blessed Communion renew
God you visit your people
Do not our hearts rejoice
Help us sit with the silence
And listen for your voice
 
Blessed Communion
Our hearts are burning
Our world is yearning
And longing for you
Welcome the stranger,
Into the circle of love
For in communion
 
There’s room for all
Through this communion we share
Teach us to recognise
Your real and living presence
In our brothers and sisters eyes
May our every encounter
be mutual moments of grace
Help us truly discover
The image of your face
 
Blessed Communion
Our hearts are burning
Our world is yearning
and longing for you
Welcome the stranger
Into the circle of love
For in communion
There’s room for all
For in communion
There’s room for all
 
 
Maryknoll Gloria
 

The Words for the 'Maryknoll Gloria' are taken from The English Translation of Glory to God from the Roman Missal copyright 2010, International Commission on English in the Liturgy Corporation. I wrote the setting while at the Marist International Novitiate at Maryknoll, Greenmeadows, Hawkes Bay.
