Offertory Anthem: “Sing Lullaby” (Basque Carol)

Sing lullaby, lullaby baby, now reclining, sing lullaby
Hush, do not wake the infant King!
Angles are watching, starts are shining over the place where he is lying,
Sing Lullaby!

Sing Lullaby, lullaby baby, now a-sleeping, sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant King!
Soon will come sorrow with the morning; soon will come bitter grief and weeping.
Sing lullaby!

Sing lullaby, lullaby baby now a-dozing, sing lullaby.
Hush, do not wake the infant King!
Soon comes the cross, the nails, the piercing, then in the grave at last reposing,
Sing Lullaby!

Sing lullaby, lullaby, is the Babe awaking? Sing lullaby!
Hush, do not wakt the infant King!
Dreaming of Easter, gladsome morning, Conquering death, it’s bondage breaking.
Sing Lullaby!

Communion Anthem: “The Blessed Son of God”

The blessed Son of God only in a crib full poor did lie:
With our poor flesh and our poor blood,
was clothed that everlasting good.
Kyrie Eleison
The Lord Christ Jesus, God’s Son dear, was a guest and a stranger here;
Us for to bring from misery, that we might live eternally.
Kyrie Eleison.
All this did He for us freely, for to declare His great mercy:
All Christendom be merry therefore, and give Him thanks for evermore.
Kyrie Eleison
