“In music, in the panorama of nature, in dreams at night (as Leopardi himself wrote in his Canto Notturno) it is to something else that man pays homage, from which he expects something: he awaits it. His enthusiasm is for something that music, or everything that is beautiful in this world, has awakened within him. When a person begins to feel this, his soul immediately harks to await the other thing: even in the presence of what he can grasp, he awaits another thing: he grasps what he can grasp, but he awaits a nother thing.”

Ah, Holy Jesus Ah, holy Jesus, How hast thou offended, That man to judge thee Hath in hate pretended? By foes derided, By thine own rejected, O most afflicted. Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee? Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee. ’Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee: I crucified thee. Lo, the good Shepherd For the sheep is offered; The slave hath sinnèd, And the Son hath suffered; For man’s atonement, While he nothing heedeth, God intercedeeth. For me, kind Jesus, Was thine Incarnation, Thy mortal sorrow, And thy life’s oblation; Thy death of anguish And thy bitter Passion For my salvation. Therefore, kind Jesus, Since I cannot pay thee, I do adore thee And will ever pray thee, Think on thy pity And thy love unswerving, Not my deserving. Along the Jordan River

I cannot see their faces and I cannot hear their names, but from back in ancient times many prophets have told of them and I know I will go and see. Along the Jordan River There’s a fascinating Man Now I can look at His eyes And Jesus is His name. He’s telling of His Father, Really you cannot understand, And I know I must stay and see.
C7 G7 C7 D7 C F C D7 G7 C C7 F G F C

Deep inside a fire burns my soul, Warms my heart While a new awareness grows, With out Him I can’t understand The things any more, Deep in side I know He is the Lord. Along the streets of my city I met a group of working men, I’ve always known their faces And I surely know their names, But something new has happened In their hearts and in their eyes And I know that I must stay and see. Deep inside a fire burns their souls, Warms their hearts while A new awareness grows, Without Him they can’t understand The things anymore, Deep inside they know He is the Lord. Along the paths of my life Lots of questions come and go.

Along the Jordan River there’s a group of walking men. 14

Sometimes they made me cry ’Cause I didn’t know who to ask «why?», But now I’ve met the Lord of life, He lives strongly in these men, And I know I must stay and sing. Deep inside a fire burns my soul, Warms my heart While a new awareness grows, Without Him I can’t understand The things anymore; Deep inside I know He is the Lord. Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, how sweet the sounds‚ that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found‚ was blind but now I see. ’T was grace that taught my heart to fear and grace my fears relieved; how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed. Through many dangers, toils and snares, I have already come; ’tis grace that brought me safe thus far and grace will lead me home. How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believers ear. It soothes his sorrows, heals the wounds and drives away his fear. Must Jesus bear the cross alone and all the world go free? No, there’s a cross for ev’ry one and there’s a cross for me. When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise. than when we first begun.

Ave Ma ria. Ave Maria. Mother of all of us, Show us Christ, your sweet Son, Whom you have borne For us all in your womb. He was born for every man, To free us all from death for ever And He died for every man, to lead us back to a true life. Ave Maria. Ave Maria. You who are so full of grace, Show to us the right way, Where life is waiting, ready waiting for us. Please ask our Lord To give us all His loving mercy, Please ask in our name That we may be forever peaceful. Amen

One and only noble tree! None in foliage, none in blossom, None in fruit thy peer may be; Dearest wood and dearest iron! Dearest weight is hung on thee. Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle, Sing the ending of the fray; Now above the Cross, the trophy, Sound the loud triumphant lay: Tell how Christ, the world’s Redeemer, As a victim won the day. Faithful Cross … God in pity saw man fallen, Shamed and sunk in misery, When he fell on death by tasting Fruit of the forbidden tree; Then another tree was chosen Which the world from death should free. Dearest wood … Thus the scheme of our salvation Was of old in order laid, That the manifold deceiver’s Art by art might be outweighed, And the lure the foe put forward Into means of healing made. Faithful Cross … Therefore when the appointed fullness Of the holy time was come He was sent who maketh all things Forth from God’s eternal home; Thus He came to earth, incarnate, Offspring of a maiden’s womb. Dearest wood … Hear the helpless baby crying Where the narrow manger stands; See how she, His Virgin Mother, Ties His limbs with slender bands, Swaddling clothes she wraps about Him, And confines God’s feet and hands!

Faithful Cross … Thirty years among us dwelling, His appointed time fulfilled, Born for this, He meets His Passion, For that this He freely willed, On the Cross the Lamb is lifted Where his life-blood shall be spilled. Dearest wood . . . He endured the nails, the spitting, Vinegar, and spear, and reed; From that holy Body broken Blood and water forth proceed; Earth, and stars, and sky, and ocean By that flood from stain are freed. Faithful Cross … Bend thy boughs, O Tree of Glory Thy relaxing sinews bend; For a while the ancient rigor That thy birth bestowed, suspend; And the King of heavenly beauty On thy bosom gently tend! Dearest wood … Thou alone wast counted worthy This world’s ransom to uphold; For a shipwreck’d race preparing Harbor, like the Ark of old; With the sacred Blood anointed From the smitten Lamb that rolled. Faithful Cross … To the Trinity be glory Everlasting, as is meet; Equal to the Father, equal To the Son, and Paraclete: Trinal Unity, whose praises All created things repeat. Amen. Dearest wood …

Flattire Freeway Riro Maniscalco / Richard Veras I dreamed I’d seen a green garden In this skyscraper forest that lets nothing new grow The fresh water showers dry weeds into flowers And sprinkles on seedlings unknown I longed just for one true story In this wastepaper playground only tall tales get told Give me news to delight me, and words to invite me To watch the way real life unfolds My hope needs mendin’ but my need is unbendin’ My wantin’ don’t ever get cold I can’t help wishin’ while guitar strings keep fishin’ For a tune that will never get old La la la I looked for another wonder In this highwire circus where no risk is too bold Keep your clowns and your lions, let the trapeze keep flyin’ But give my heart something to hold Will destiny come to greet me On this flattire freeway where nobody gets home?

Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day. Magnificat Mary, as you held your lovely boy babe, Did you gladly welcome the miracle God had made, Wondering as you gazed at Him, King of all Kings, That this helpless child mankind would redeem? My soul magnifies the Lord, My spirit sings His praise; He has look upon His handmaid, And blessed me in all ways, Though my life bring care and sorrow, I’ll trust in God above, For He has done great things for me With unending mercy and love. Mary, as He grew, were you burdened by fear? Did you hold your heart when you saw He was nowhere near? Trembling as you heard how He spoke to the scribes, Did you know then He would offer His life? Mary, as you wept burning tears for your son, Did your soul delight at the victory He had won? Mother, will you guide me, help me to understand How my own life changed when God became man? Mary Did You Know Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water? Mary did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters, did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new and the child that you deliver would soon deliver you?

Mary did you know that your baby boy would give sight to the blind men? Mary did you know that your baby boy would calm a storm with his hand, did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod and when you kiss your little boy you have kissed the face of God. The blind will see, the deaf will hear the dead will live again the lame will leap, the dumb will speak the praises of the lamb. Oh Mary did you know that your baby boy is God of all creation? Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations, did you know that your baby boy was heaven’s perfect love and the sleeping child you’re holding is the great “I am”. Mary’s Son

Did we ever sing of the Son of God Whose mother’s face was helpless grief When she saw Him heave the cross again? His mother’s face was helpless grief. Did we ever sing of the Risen Lord Who turned his mother’s tears to joy? The Child she bore had saved the world! The turned His mother’s tears to joy. 23

Way down upon de Swanee ribber, Far, far away, Dere’s wha my heart is turning ebber, Dere’s wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation, Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. All round de little farm I wandered When I was young, Den many happy days I squandered, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder Happy was I –. Oh! take me to my kind old mudder, Dere let me live and die. All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home. One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love, Still sadly to my mem’ry rushes, No matter where I rove When will I see de bees a humming All round de comb? When will I hear de banjo tumming Down in my good old home? All de world am sad and dreary, Ebry where I roam, Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home.

“ Yes I do my Lord.” “Then feed my sheep, feed my sheep‚ Feed my sheep.” “ Yes I will my Lord.” Now Simon Peter loved the Lord, though Him he had denied. Filled with shame he could not meet his gentle Master’s eye. But Jesus gazed at His friend with mercy so profound, That Peter answered “Yes, my Lord!” and shared His cross and crown. Then Jesus asked … Now we too hear our Savior’s voice, calling us to Him. Like Peter, we turn away, silenced by our sin. But we must offer all to Him, and echo Peter’s “yes”, For in His mighty, tender love, lies our happiness! 27

I am a poor wayfaring stranger, Wand’ring through this world of woe‚ There is no sickness, toil nor danger In that bright world to which I go. I’m going there to see my father, I’m going there no more to roam, I’m only going over Jordan, I’m only going over home. I feel my sins are all forgiven, My hopes are stayed on things above, I’m going away to yon bright heaven Where all is joy and peace and love. I’m going there to meet my brothers, They’ve gone before me one by one, I’m only going over Jordan, I’m only going over home. I know dark clouds will gather ’round me, I know my way is rough and steep, But beauteous fields lie just before me, Where souls redeemed their vigils keep. I’m going there to meet my Saviour, I’m going there to see my Lord, I’m only going over Jordan I’m only going over home. I want to sing salvation’s story, In concert with that blood-washed band, I want to wear a crown of glory When I get home to that bright land.

Maria, all of your Son’s unfair sufferings You’ve borne with humility, Help us … Maria, you who forever live in glory Together with your Lord, Help us … Prayerful Song Kristi Brown 2001 Now and then a weariness, that I cannot resist, causes me to see my life as so much desperate risk, a beggar’s tattered wish. At those times my peace is lost, washed away by tears; like a child in the dark I am filled with fear, wanting someone near. So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to see all that He promises my life to be, the joy for which I long. Once I thought that following Him would hinder pain and loss; reveling in the Resurrection, I forgot the cost, I denied the Cross. Every day I rebel against the Way He made for me; though my life is but a gift, I clutch it selfishly, thinking to be free. So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to be endlessly

attentive to the Mystery, the joy for which I long So I ask in prayerful song that the One to whom I belong will help me to be endlessly attentive to the Mystery, the desire behind the song.

I heard a story ’bout a woman, Who, walking with her child, Gazed up at the last morning star; She cried, “Oh, how lovely is this blessed world, And how great, my God, You are!” Oh, the whole, wide world’s … In the bright day or shadowed night, Whether my soul feels burdened or light, I want to see it all with that wise woman’s eyes, full of hope, full of wonder. Oh, the whole, wide world’s … Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot

for auld lang syne. For auld lang syne, my dear … Sing of Mary
D D D D D D D D G G A G G G G A G G D D D A D D D A A A A A

Sing of Mary, pure and lowly, Virgin Mother undefiled Sing of God’s own Son most Holy, Who be came her little child. F airest child of fairest mother, God the Lord, who came to earth, Word made flesh, our very brother, Takes our nature by His birth. Sing of Jesus, son of Mary, In the home of Nazareth. Toil and labour cannnot weary Love enduring unto death. Constant was the love He gave her, Though He went forth from her side, Forth to preach and heal and suffer, Till on Calvary He died. Glory be to God the Father; Glory be to God the Son; Glory be to God the Spirit; Glory to the Three in One. From the heart of blessed Mary, From all Saints the song ascends, And the church the strain re-echoes Unto earth’s remotest ends. Stabat Mater (English)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to min’? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, and days o’ lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne. And there’s a hand, my trusty frien’ and gie’s a hand o’thine; and we’ll tak’ a right guid willy-waught 30

Stabat Mater (p. 197) 1. At the Cross her station keeping Stood the mournful mother weeping Close to Jesus to the last.

2. Through her heart His sorrow sharing All His bitter anguish bearing Now at length the sword has passed. 3. O, how sad and sore distressed Was that mother, highly blessed Of the sole begotten One. 4. Christ above in torment hangs, She beneath beholds the pangs Of her dying, glorious Son. 5. Is there one who would not weep Whelmed in miseries so deep, Christ’s dear mother to behold? 6. Can the human heart refrain From partaking in her pain, In that mother’s pain untold? 7. Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled, She beheld her tender Child All with bloody scourges rent. 8. For the sins of His own nation, Saw Him hang in desolation Till His spirit forth He sent. 9. Let me mingle tears with thee, Mourning Him who mourned for me, All the days that I may live. 10. By the Cross with thee to stay; There with thee to weep and pray, That is all I ask of thee. 11. O thou Mother! Font of Love! Touch my spirit from above; Make my heart with thine accord. 12. Make me feel as thou hast felt; Make my soul to glow and melt With the love of Christ my Lord. 13. Virgin of all virgins blest, Listen to my tard request; Let me share thy grief divine.

14. Let me, to my latest breath, In the body, bear the death Of that dying Son of thine. 15. Holy Mother! pierce me through, In my heart each wound renew Of my Savior crucified. 16. While my body here decays, May my soul thy goodness praise, Safe in paradise with thee. Amen. The Day Thou Gavest Lord Is Ended John Ellerton
G G G G D Em D Em Em Am Em Am D D G D

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended‚ the darkness falls at thy behest; to thee our morning hymns ascended‚ thy praise shall sanctify our rest. We thank thee that thy church, unsleeping, while earth rolls onward into light, through all the world her watch is keeping, and rests not now by day or night. As over each continent and island the dawn leads on another day, the voice of prayer is never silent, nor dies the strain of praise away. The sun that bids us rest is waking our brethren ’neath the western sky, and hour by hour fresh lips are making thy wondrous doings heard on high. So be it, Lord; thy throne shall never like earth’s proud empires, pass away: thy kingdom stands, and grows forever, till all thy creatures own thy sway.

Do I ignore the need and let it be? … but my heart won’t go away Can you jog a former leper’s memory? … ’cause I need to remember Will you be a stumbling block along my way?

In the deepest sea of silence Just a single voice was heard‚ In a night without an end There was only a spark of light Where nothing had been present before.
Am G Am G F Dm C E E E7 Dm C E

Already You had written My name among the stars‚ Already You had planned My life entwined with Yours‚ You had al ready written of me. And then when from Your mind The stars began to shine, And then when from Your hands The earth was born in time, Where nothing had been present before. Already You had written … And then when You had stretched The vastness of the sky, And on it You had painted The rainbows and the clouds, Where nothing had been present before. Already You had written … And then when You had carved The valleys and the hills, And then when You had drawn The path of every man; I know You did it also for me. I did not know my longing, Till I encountered You, I see what freedom is; Your plan prepared for me. 32

to Christ, who has risen from dèath. Death’s power is vanquished by life, and sin has been washed clean by love, and Christ in His glorious splendor illumines the advent of morning. The darkness of night has now broken, the morn comes resplendent with light; Our souls overflowing with joy rejoice that in Him we are brothers. May Christ show Himself in his glory to us, as unto Mary Magdalen, He’ll come and call each one by name, the Lord who was dead, but is risen. Retùrn, O Lord, to our path, Your words set ablaze in our hearts; Once more in the bread that is broken Your risen face will be revèaled. When into one body we gather, a new Guest appears in our midst; our faith, may He strengthen anew, revealing his glorious woùnds. This day of our Easter rejoicing, our innocence he will renew. All glory to Christ, our Redeemer, To Father and Spirit forever. Amen. The Mystery Il mistero (p. 220) He who welcomes in his heart The will of my Father Will be to me a brother A brother, a sister, and mother. With all simplicity I long to witness The Myst’ry showing itself in my life, There where a new dawn is born in the depth Of an existence called forth by Your love. You knew me even before I existed You shaped my flesh in the womb of a woman Talked to my heart since ages eternal

To teach me how to hearken Your voice. Looking at fields and observing the heavens, I see a seed that has fallen to earth. I hear creation quiver and tremble Meanwhile Your kingdom is already here. If I can still see a person who suffers While the whole world is erupting in strife, I will know this suffering is only a labor, Birth of a new man created for life. The River Is Here Andy Park
A A A A E E E E B B B B E E E E

Down the mountain the river flows‚ And it brings re freshing wherever it goes. Through the valleys and over the fields‚ The river is rushing and the river is here.
E E E A E B A B A E E E E

The river of God sets our feet a-dancing‚ The river of God fills our hearts with cheer‚ The river of God fills our mouth with laughter‚ And we rejoice for the river is here. The river of God is teeming with life, And all who touch it can be revived, And those who linger on this river’s shore, Will come back thirsting for more of the Lord The river of God … So up the mountain we love to go, To find the presence of the Lord, Along the banks of the river we run, We dance with laughter, giving praise to the Son.

The Strife is o’er, the Battle Done G. P. da Palestrina, adapted by W. H. Monk; 1 st q: F # Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! 1. The strife is o’er, the battle done; Now is the Victor’s triumph won; Now be the song of praise begun: Alleluia! 2. Death’s mightiest powers have done their worst, And Jesus has his foes dispersed; Let shouts of praise and joy outburst: Alleluia! 3. He closed the yawning gates of hell; The bars from heaven’s high portals fell; Let hymns of praise his triumph tell: Alleluia! 4. On the third morn he rose again Glorious in majesty to reign; O let us swell the joyful strain: Alleluia! 5.

E C# m E C # m E A C# m F# E A A A B B E C# m E C # m A B C# m B E

With the wind in the willows and the birds in the sky, we have bright sun to w arm us wherever we lie. We have bread and fishes and a jug of red wine to share on your journey with all of man kind. I sat down beside them, the flow’rs all around, and we ate on a mantle spread out on the ground. They told me of prophets and princes and kings, and they spoke of the one God who knows everything. With the wind in the willows … I asked them to tell me their name and their race, so I might remember their kindness and grace. My name is Joseph, this is Mary my wife and this is our young son, our pride and delight. With the wind in the willows … We travelled the whole world by land and by sea, to tell all the people how they can be free.

This ol’ riverboat walkin’ up the river keep her steady as you go heave the ladder, bear the line now we’re markin’ on the twain four fathoms below Way up the river we go.

We’re muckin’ bottom and here comes ol’ Dixie singing “who’s got that cotton to sell” but when she’s passin’ we’re ridin’ high on her swell (we’re on the move again). These two riverboats racin’ up the river then ol’ Dixie runs aground there she stands high and dry as we’re walkin’ right on by I can see the lights of town we’ve got to roll that cotton down. This ol’ riverboat seen a lot of water lots of cotton you can bet you can ask anyone you meet and they’ll say she can’t be beat she ain’ t never been yet can’t you hear a whistle blow way up the river we go walkin’ up the river we go up and down the river we go … Turn to Me Turn to me, O man and be saved, says the Lord, for I am God, there is no other, none beside me, I call your name. I am here that comforts you, who are you to be afraid, of man who dies is made like the grass of the field, soon to wither. Listen to me my people, give ear to me my nation, a law will go forth from me, and my justice for a light to the people. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth down below. The heavens will vanish like smoke, 36

Blessed Virgin, full of grace. Noblest of the human race. Far above angelic state, None more fair did God create. Where Charity and Love Prevail
Em C Bm Am Em Bm Am G Am Em Em Em

Where charity and love pre vail, There God is ever found; Brought heretogether by Christ’s love‚ By love are we thus bound. With grateful joy and holy fear His charity we learn; Let us with heart and mind and soul Now love Him in return. Forgive we now each other’s faults As we our faults confess; And let us love each other well In Christian holiness. Let strife among us be unknown, Let all contention cease;

Be His the glory that we seek, Be ours His holy peace. Let us recall that in our midst Dwells God’s begotten Son; As members of His body joined, We are in Him made one. Witness Oh Lord, what manner of man is this? All nations in him are blessed, all things are done by his will, he spoke to the sea and the sea stood still. Now ain’t that a witness for my Lord? Ain’t that a witness for my Lord? Ain’t that a witness for my Lord? My soul is a witness for the Lord. Now there was a man of the Pharisees, his name was Nicodemus and he didn’t believe. The same came to Christ by night, wanted to be taught out of human sight. Nicodemus was a man who desired to know how a man can be born when he is old. Christ told Nicodemus, as a friend: “Man, you must be born again.” He said: “Marvel not, man, if you wanna be wise, repent, believe, and be baptized. Then you’ll be a witness for my Lord, you’ll be a witness for my Lord, you’ll be a witness for my Lord. My soul is a witness for the Lord. Well, you read about Samson, from his birth, the strongest man that ever lived on earth. Way back yonder in the ancient times he killed ten thousand of the Philistines. Then old Samson went wanderin’ about Samson’s strength was never found out.

Till his wife sat upon his knees, she said: “Tell me where your strength lies, if you please”. Now Samson’s wife, she talked so fair, Samson said: “Cut off my hair.” “Shave my head just as a clean as your hand and my strength will become like a natural man”. Old Samson was a witness for my Lord, Samson was a witness for my Lord, Samson was a witness for my Lord. My soul is a witness for my Lord. There’s another witness, now there’s another witness, there’s another witness: my soul is a witness for my Lord, my soul is a witness for my Lord. Wondrous Love
Dm C Dm F F Am Dm C F Dm C G G F Am Am Dm G Dm G G Am C Am Am Dm G G Dm G Dm F

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O mysoul? What wondrous love is this, O my soul? What wondrous love is this That caused the Lord of Bliss To bear the dreadful curse For my soul, for my soul, To bear the dreadful curse for my soul? To God and to the Lamb I will sing, I will sing. To God and to the Lamb I will sing. To God and to the Lamb Who is the great “I am”. While millions join the theme I will sing, I will sing, While millions join the theme I will sing.

Alleluia! 6. “My pierced side, O Thomas, see; My hands, my feet, I show to thee; Not faithless, but believing be.” Alleluia! 7. No longer Thomas then denied, He saw the feet, the hands, the side; “Thou are my Lord and God,” he cried. Alleluia! 8. How blest are they who have not seen, And yet whose faith has constant been, For they eternal life shall win. Alleluia! 38

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning, Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid; Star of the East, the horizon adorning, Guide where our infant Re deemer is laid. Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining; Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall; Angels adore Him in slumber reclining, Maker and Monarch and Savior of all! Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion, Odors of Edom and offerings divine? Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean, Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine? Vainly we offer each ample oblation, Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; Richer by far is the heart’s adoration, Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor. Caroling, Caroling

Eravamo par titi ch’era l’alba, Salutando le mogli ed i figl ioli‚ Sulla strada aspet tavano i compagni‚ Per guidare le pecore sui monti. Io mi ricordo, io mi ricordo era un giorno come un altro, 59

Quel pomeriggio, quel pomeriggio, Avevamo lavorato. Le pecore nell’erba erano bianche, Come nuvole bianche in mezzo al cielo, Era freddo nell’aria e nel silenzio, Era calda la voce dei compagni. Io mi ricordo, io mi ricordo era un giorno come un altro, E quella sera, e quella sera, eravamo molto stanchi. Eravamo distesi attorno al fuoco, A pensare alle mogli ed ai figlioli, Il più vecchio canta va le preghiere, E l’antica promessa dei profeti. Io mi ricordo, io mi ricordo era un giorno come un altro, E nella notte, e nella notte, eravamo addormentati, E ciascuno nel sonno udì una voce, Che diceva svegliatevi pastori, E splendevano i campi per la luce, Che splendeva nel cielo e su di noi, E poi l’angelo disse dove andare, E fu breve la strada per Betlemme, E trovammo la stalla ed il bambino, Che piangeva di freddo … ed era dio. I Saw Three Ships

Like you and like I‚ I wonder as I wander Out under the sky. When Mary bore Jesus ’Twas in a cow-stall, With wisemen and farmers And shepherds and all And high from God’s heaven A star’s light did fall And the promise of ages, It did them recall. If Jesus had wanted For any wee thing, A star in the sky or A bird on the wing, Or all of God’s angels In heaven for to sing He surely could’ve had it, ’Cause he is the King.

They bended on hov’ring wing, And ever o’er its Babel sounds The blessed angels sing. And ye, beneath life’s crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil a long the climbing way With weary steps and slow, Look up! For glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing O rest beside the weary road And hear the angels sing. For lo, the days are hast’ning on, By prophets bards foretold When with the ever circling years Comes round the Age of Gold, When peace shall over all the earth Its ancient splendors fling And all the world give back the song Which now the angels sing.

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing heart by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming, Here came the wise men from the Orient land. The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger, In all our trials, born to be our friend. He knows our need, He guardeth us from danger; Behold your King! Before the lowly bend! Behold your King! Before the lowly bend! Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is love and His gospel is peace; Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother, And in his name, all oppression cease. With hymns of joy in grateful chorus raising, Let every heart adore his Holy Name! Christ is the Lord! With saint and seraph praising, His power and glory proclaim! His power and glory proclaim!

No ear may hear his coming, But in the world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him still The dear Christ enters in. O holy child of Bethlehem, Descend to us we pray Cast out our sin and enter in, Be born in us today. We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel. Personent Personent hodie Voces puerulae Laudantes jucunde Qui nobis est natus. Summo Deo datus. Ideo, ideo Ideo gloria, in excelsis Deo. On this day, earth shall ring With the song children sing To the Lord, to our King Born on earth to save us; Him the Father gave us. Ideo … His the doom, ours the mirth; When He came, down to earth Bethlehem saw His birth; Ox and ass beside Him. From the cold would hide Him.

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, The silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth The ever lasting light The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee to night. For Christ is born of Mary, And gathered all above, While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wond’ring love. O morning stars together, Proclaim the holy birth,

I brought Him a gift in the Wise Men’s pack.” “I,” said the camel, yellow and black. Thus every beast by some good spell In the stable dark was glad to tell Of the gift he gave Emmanuel, The gift he gave Emmanuel. The King Shall Come when Morning Dawns The King shall come when morning dawns, And light triumphant breaks; When beauty gilds the eastern hills, And life to joy awakes. Not as of old a little child To bear, and fight, and die, But crowned with glory like the sun That lights the morning sky. O brighter than the rising morn When He, victorious, rose, And left the lonesome place of death, Despite the rage of foes. O brighter than that glorious morn Shall this fair morning be, When Christ, our King, in beauty comes, And we His face shall see. The King shall come when morning dawns, And earth’s dark night is past; O haste the rising of that morn, The day that aye shall last. And let the endless bliss begin, By weary saints foretold, When right shall triumph over wrong, And truth shall be extolled. The King shall come when morning dawns, And light and beauty brings: Hail, Christ the Lord! Thy people pray, Come quickly, King of kings.

The King of all creation, Came he to a world forlorn, The Lord of every nation. Cradled in a stall was he With sleepy cows and asses; But the very beasts could see That He all men surpasses.

Raise, raise the song on high, The Virgin sings her lullaby, Joy, joy for Christ is born, The babe, the son of Mary. When Christ, the Son of Mary Quanno nascette Ninno (p. 68) When Christ, the Son of Mary, In Bethlehem was born, T’was night, and yet the light Was bright as summer’s morn! Stars were gleaming, brightly beaming O’er the town of Bethlehem; A brighter star there shone For magi far, a guiding star That led them on. When Christ, the Son of Mary, Within her arms was laid, The lion with the lamb, The bear with fatling strayed. Close to the shepherd wandered the leopard, Every creature was at peace; The great and small were one; For calf or lamb that night no fright, But joy, did come. When Christ, the Son of Mary, Within the crib did lie, There came to shepherds drowsy A voice which sang on high: “Peace on the earth is come with this birth; Go, seek the Babe in yonder stall, Your King, though weak and small; The world’s true light is come this night To save you all.”

Nails, nails, shall pierce Him through, The cross be borne for me, for you Hail, hail, the word made flesh, The babe, the son of Mary.

As I watched him on the stage My hands were clenched in fists of rage No angel born in hell Could break that satan’s spell And as flames climbed high into the night To light the sacrificial rite I saw satan laughing with delight the day the music died. I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news But she just smiled and turned away I went down to the sacred store Where I’d heard the music years before But the man there said the music wouldn’t play

And in the streets the children screamed The lovers cried and the poets dreamed But not a word was spoken The church bells all were broken And the three men I admire most The Father Son and Holy Ghost They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died They were singin’ Bye, bye miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry And good ol’ boys were drinking whisky and rye?

In the roads that never saw sun nor sky‚ Roads that never saw sun nor sky. In the town of Springhill, you don’t sleep easy Often the earth will tremble and roll When the earth is restless, miners die Bone and blood is the price of coal Bone and blood is the price of coal.

In the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia, Late in the year of fifty-eight, Day still comes and the sun still shines, But it’s dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. Dark as the grave in the Cumberland mine. Down at the coal face, miners working, Rattle of the belt and the cutter’s blade Rumble of rock and the walls close round The living and the dead men two miles down. Living and dead men two miles down. Twelve men lay two miles from the pitshaft, Twelve men lay in the dark and sang, Long hot days in the miner’s tomb, It was three feet high and a hundred long, Three feet high and a hundred long.

Battle Cry of Freedom

In return for grace It’s a beautiful day Sky falls, you feel like It’s a beautiful day Don’t let it get away You’re on the road But you’ve got no destination You’re in the mud In the maze of her imagination You love this town Even if that doesn’t ring true You’ve been all over And it’s been all over you It’s a beautiful day Don’t let it get away … It’s a beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Teach me I know I’m not a hopeless case See the world in green and blue See China right in front of you See the canyons broken by cloud See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out See the Bedouin fires at night See the oil fields at first light And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth After the flood all the colors came out It was a beautiful day Don’t let it get away Beautiful day Touch me Take me to that other place Reach me I know I’m not a hopeless case What you don’t have you don’t need it now What you don’t know you can feel it somehow What you don’t have you don’t need it now

Down on the corner, Out in the street Willie and the Poorboys are playin’ Bring a nickel, tap your feet Rooster hits the wash board, And people just got to smile Blinky thumps the gut-bass And solos for a while Poorboy twangs the rhythm out, On his kalamazoo Willie goes into a dance And doubles on kazoo. Down on the corner … You don’t need a penny, Just to hang around But if you got a nickel Won’t you lay your money down Over on the corner, There’s a happy noise People come from all around To watch the magic boy. Down on the corner … Dream a Little Dream of Me Stars shining bright above you, Night breezes seem to whisper, “I love you”; Birds singin’ in the sycamore tree; Dream a little dream of me …

E arly in the evening,

Just about suppertime Over by the courthouse

They’re startin’ to un wind

Say “nighty-night” and kiss me, Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me; While I’m alone and blue as can be, Dream a little dream of me … 99

Stars fading, but I linger on, dear, Still craving your kiss; I’m longing to linger till dawn, dear, Just saying this: Sweet dreams till sun beams find you, Sweet dreams that leave our worries behind you; But in your dreams, whatever they be, Dream a little dream of me Stars fading, but I linger on, dear, Still craving your kiss; I’m longing to linger till dawn dear, Just saying this: Sweet dreams till sun beams find you, Sweet dreams that leave our worries far behind you; But in your dreams, whatever they be, Dream a little dream of me.

The prison band was there and they began to wail. The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing. You should’ ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing. Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock. Everybody in the whole cell block Was a dancin’ to the Jailhouse Rock. Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone, Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone. The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang, the whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang. Let’s rock … Number forty-seven said to number three: “You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see. I sure would be delighted with your company, come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me.” Let’s rock … The sad sack was a sittin’ on a block of stone way over in the corner weepin’ all alone. The warden said, “Hey, buddy, don’t you be no square. If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair.” Let’s rock … Shifty Henry said to Bugs, “For Heaven’s

sake, no one’ s lookin’ , now’ s our chance to make a break.” Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, “Nix nix, I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.” Let’s rock … Jamaica Farewell

And when I reached Ja maica I made a stop. But I’m sad to say I’m on my way, Won’t be back for many a day. My heart is down, my head is turning around I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town. Sounds of laughter everywhere And the dancing ladies swing to and fro. I must declare my heart is there, Though I’ve been from Maine to Mexico. But I’m sad to say … Down at the market you can hear Ladies cry while on there heads they bear. “Akey” rice, salt fish are nice, And the rum is fine any time of the year. But I’m sad to say … Johnny B. Goode Chuck Berry Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans, way back up in the woods among the evergreens, there stand a country cabin made of clay and wood, where lives a young country boy 117

named Johnny B. Goode, he never ever learned to read or write a book so well, but he could play his guitar just like a-ringing a bell. Go go, go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! Go Johnny go go go! aah Johnny B. Goode! He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack, sit beneath the trees by the railroad track. Oh sitting and a-playing in the shade, drumming to the rhythm that the drivers made. People passing by used to stop and say: my oh my, that country boy can play. Go go, go Johnny go go go! Well his mama told him: someday you will be a man. And you will be the leader of a big old band. Many people coming from miles around, to hear you play your music till the sun goes down. Maybe some day your name will be in light, saying: Johnny B. Goode tonight! Go go, go Johnny go go go! Keep on the Sunny Side There’s a dark and a troubled side of life, There’s a bright and a sunny side, too; Though you meet with the darkness and strife, The sunny side you also may view. 118

Keep on the sunny side, Always on the sunny side: Keep on the sunny side of life! It will help us every day, It will brighten all the way, If we’ll keep on the sunny side of life! Though the storm and its furies rage today, Crushing hope that we cherish so dear, The cloud and storm will in time pass away, And the sun again will shine bright and clear. Keep on the sunny side … Let us greet with a song of hope each day, Though the moment be cloudy or fair, And let us trust in our Savior always: He’ll keep us everyone in His care. Keep on the sunny side … Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door Bob Dylan

We passed that summer lost in love beneath the lemon tree the music of her laughter hid my father’s words from me: Lemon Tree very pretty … One day she left without a word. She took away the sun. And in the dark she left behind, I knew what she had done. She’d left me for another, it’s a common tale but true. A sadder man but wiser now I sing these words to you: Lemon Tree very pretty … Let it Be

MTA Song Now let me tell you of a story ’Bout a man named Charlie On that tragic and fateful day; He put ten cents in his pocket, Kissed his wife and family, Went to ride on the MTA. But did he ever return? No, he never returned, And his fate is still unlearned, He may ride forever ’neath the streets of Boston – He’s the man who never returned. Charlie handed in his dime At the Kendall Square Station And he changed Jamaica Plain; When he got there the conductor told him “one more nickel!” Charlie couldn’t get off that train. But did he ever return … Now all night long Charlie Rides through the tunnel Crying, “What will become of me? How can I afford to see My sister in Chelsea Or my cousin in Roxbury?” But did he ever return … Charlie’s wife goes down to the Scollay Square Station Everyday at a quarter past two And through the open window She hands Charlie a sandwich As the train comes rumblin’ through! But did he ever return … Now you citizens of Boston, Don’t you think that it’s a scandal The way people have to pay and pay; Fight the fare increase, Vote for George O’Brien

And get Charlie off the MTA! But did he ever return … Mull of Kintyre Paul und Linda McCartney 1977

My Own Worst Enemy Can we forget about the things I said When I was drunk Didn’t mean to call you that I can’t remember what was said and what you threw at me please tell me, Please tell me why The car is in the front yard and I’m sleeping with my clothes on came in through the window last night, and you’re gone.

And did it my w ay . I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried I’ve had my fill, my share of losing. And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing. To think, I did all that, And may I say, “not in a shy way”, Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way. For what is a man, what has he got, 129

If not himself, then he has not, To say the things, he truly feels, And not the words of one who kneels. The record shows, I took the blows, And did my way.

Automobile comin’ into style Comin’ down the road for a country mile or two So happy just to see you smile Underneath the sky of blue On this new morning, new morning On this new morning with you. The night passed away so quickly It always does when you’re with me. Can’t you feel that sun a-shinin’? Ground hog runnin’ by the country stream This must be the day that all of my dreams come true So happy just to be alive Underneath the sky of blue On this new morning, new morning On this new morning with you.

In eighteen hundred and forty-two I left the old world for the new, Bad cess to the luck that brought me through To work upon the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) To work upon the railway. Our contractor’s name it was Tom King, He kept a store to rob the men, A Yankee clerk with ink and pen, To cheat Pat on the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) To cheat Pat on the railway. It’s “Pat, do this,” and “Pat, do that!” Without a stocking or a hat, And nothing but an old cravat, While Pat works on the railway. Fil-i-me-or-y-or-y-ay (3x) While Pat works on the railway.

Yipie-i- yay, yip-i-oh -oh‚ Ghost riders in the sky. Their brands were still on fire And their hoofs were made of steel Their horns were black and shiny And their hot breath he could feel A bolt of fear went through him As they thundered through the sky For as he saw the riders coming hard, He could hear their mournful cry. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh … Their face was gaunt, their eyes were blurred, Their shirts all soaked with sweat, They’re riding hard to catch that herd, But they ain’t caught him yet They’ve got to ride for evermore On the range up in the sky On horses snorting fire As they ride, I hear them cry. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh … And as the riders loped on by He heard one call his name If you want to save your soul from hell A-ridin’ on the range Then cowboy better change your ways Or with us you will ride Trying to catch the devil’s herd Across the endless sky. Yipie-i-yay, yip-i-oh-oh …

From this valley they say you are going‚ We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile‚ For they say you are taking the sunshine, Which has brightened our pathway a while. Come and sit by my side if you love me, Do not hasten to bid me adieu But remember the Red River Valley And the one who has loved you so true Won’t you think of the valley you’re leaving, O how lonely, how sad it will be? O think of the fond heart you’re breaking And the grief you are causing to me. Come and sit by my side … As you go to your home by the ocean, May you never forget those sweet hours That we spent in the Red River Valley And the love we exchanged ’mid the flowers Come and sit by my side … Riders

Rocky burst in And grinning a grin He said “Danny boy this is a showdown”. 139

But Daniel was hot, He drew first and shot And Rocky collapsed in the corner. Dodo dodo dododo do doo … Now the doctor came in Stinking of gin And proceeded to lie on the table. He said Rocky you met your match And Rocky said, “Doc it’s only a scratch And I’ll be better, I’ll be better doc as soon as I am able.” Now Rocky Raccoon He fell back in his room Only to find Gideon’s Bible. Gideon checked out And he left it no doubt To help with good Rocky’s revival. Dodo dodo dododo do doo …

She walks alone from wall to wall; lost in her hall, she can’t hear me, though I know she likes to be near me. Lisa … She sits in a corner by the door. There must be more I can tell her, if she really wants me to help her. I’ll do what I can to show her the way, and maybe one day I will free her, though I know no one can see her.

Streets of Laredo As I walked out in the streets of Laredo, As I walked out in Laredo one day, I spied a poor cowboy all wrapped in white linen, All wrapped in white linen, as cold as the clay. “I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy”. These words he did say as I boldly stepped by, “Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story, I was shot in the breast and I know I must die”. “Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin, Get six pretty maidens to carry my pall; Put bunches of roses all over my coffin’ Roses to deaden the clods as they fall”. “Oh, beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly Play the dead march as you carry me along; Take me to the green valley and lay the sod o’er me, For I’m a young cowboy and I know I’ve done wrong”. We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly and bitterly wept as we bore him along; For we all loved our comrade, so brave, young and handsome, We all loved our comrade, although he’d done wrong.

So how can you tell me you’re lonely‚ and say for you that the sun don’t shine?

Have you seen the old girl who walks the streets of London, dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags? She ’s no time for talkin’, she just keeps right on walkin’, Carrying her home in two carrier bags. So how can you tell me … In the all-night cafe at a quarter past eleven, same old man sitting there on his own, looking at the world over the rim of his tea cup, 149

and each tea last an hour, and he wanders home alone. So how can you tell me … Have you seen the old man outside the seaman’s mission, memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears? And in our winter city the rain cries a little pity For one more forgotten hero and a world that doesn’t care. So how can you tell me … Stuck in a Moment I’m not afraid of anything in this world There’s nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t already heard I’m just trying to find a decent melody A song that I can sing in my own company I never thought you were a fool But darling, look at you You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight These tears are going nowhere, baby You’ve got to get yourself together You’ve got stuck in a moment and now you can’t get out of it Don’t say that later will be better now you’re stuck in a moment And you can’t get out of it I will not forsake, the colors that you bring But the nights you filled with fireworks They left you with nothing I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me I listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can see And you are such a fool To worry like you do I know it’s tough, and you can never get enough 150

Of what you don’t really need now … my oh my You’ve got to get yourself together … I was unconscious, half asleep The water is warm till you discover how deep I wasn’t jumping for me it was a fall It’s a long way down to nothing at all You’ve got to get yourself together … And if the night runs over And if the day won’t last And if our way should falter Along the stony pass And if the night runs over And if the day won’t last And if your way should falter Along the stony pass It’s just a moment This time will pass Summertime G.

As the moon rises he sits by the fire Thinkin’ about women and glasses of beer And closing his eyes as the doggies retire Sings out a song which is soft but it’s clear As if maybe someone could hear: Goodnight you moonlight ladies Rockabye Sweet Baby James Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose Won’t you let me go down in my dreams And rockabye Sweet Baby James. The first of December was covered with snow And so was the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston The Berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting 10 miles behind and 10,000 more to go. There’s a song that they sing when they take to the highway A song that they sing when they take to the sea A song that they sing of their home in the sky Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep But singing works just fine for me.

Slow down, you move too fast. You got to make the morning last. Just kicking down the cobble stones. Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy. Hello lamppost, what’cha knowing? I’ve come to watch your flowers growing. Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me? Doot-in’ doo-doo, feelin’ groovy. Got no deeds to do, no promises to keep. I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep. Let the morning time drop all its petals on me. Life, I love you, all is groovy.

We’re tenting tonight on the old camp ground. Give us a song to cheer our weary hearts. A song of home and friends we love so dear. Many are the hearts that are weary tonight

The night they drove … Like my father before me, I will work the land, Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand. He was just eighteen, proud and brave, But a Yankee laid him in his grave, I swear by the mud below my feet, You can’t raise a Caine back up when he’s in defeat. The night they drove … The River is Here
E A B A E E

In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone ’Neath the halo of a streetlamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes where stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sounds of silence. And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share And no one dare Disturb the sounds of silence. “Fools!”, said I, “you do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you” But my words like silent rain-drops fell … And echoed in the wells of silence. And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed its warning In the words that it was forming And the signs said “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls” And whispered in the sounds of silence. The Times They Are A-Changing

The river of God sets our feet a-dancing. The river of God fills our hearts with cheer. The river of God fills our mouths with

Hello, darkness, my old friend‚
Am

Bob Dylan 1964 Come gather round people where ever you roam And admit that the waters around you have grown. And accept it that soon you’ll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you is worth saving than you’d better Start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone, For the times they are a-changin’.

I’ve come to talk to you again
C F F F Am C C C C

Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains
G Am

Within the sounds of silence. 156

Come writers and critics who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide, the chance won’t come again. And don’t speak too soon for the wheel’s still in spin And there’s no telling who that it’s naming For the loser now will be later to win For the times they are a-changin’. Come senators, congressmen, please heed the call, Don’t stand in the doorway, don’t block up the hall. For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled. There’s a battle outside, it’s raging. It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin’. Come mothers and fathers throughout the land And don’t criticize what you can’t understand. Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command. Your old road is rapidly aging. Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand For the times they are a-changin’. The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast. The slow one now will later be fast As the present now will later be past. The order is rapidly fading. And the first one now will later be last For the times they are a-changin’. The Water is Wide
E A C# m G #m A E B7 A E B C# m A E B

But first, it swayed and then it broke, And so my false love did unto me. O love is handsome, and love is fine, And love’s a jewel when it is new, But love grows old and waxes cold, And fades away like morning dew. There Must Be more to Life than this Freddy Mercury (Capo: 2nd Fret)
G Am D7 D Am G Bm B 7 C G G7 C Em

There must be more to life than this There must be more to life than this. How do we cope in a world without love? Mending all those broken hearts,
F D7

tending all those crying faces. There must be more to life than living. There must be more than meets the eyes. Why should it be just a case of black or white?
Am D G

There must be more to life than this .
Bm

Why is this world so full of hate,
D

people dying everywhere
G D Bm

and we des troy what we cre ate‚ people fighting for their human rights
Am D7 F

and we just keep on saying “C’est la vie” – “So this is life”. There must be more to life than killing a better way for us to survive. What good is life, if in the end we all must die? There must be more to life than this. There must be more to life than this. There must be more to life than this. I live and hope for a world filled with love, then we can all just live in peace.

The water is wid e‚ I cannot get o’er And neither hav e I wings to fly‚ Give me a boat that can carry two‚ And both shall row, my love and I. I leaned my back up against an oak, I thought it was a trusty tree,

waters‚ This land was made for you and me. As I was walking that ribbon of highway, I saw above me that endless skyway I saw below me that golden valley, This land was made for you and me. I roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps, To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts And all around me a voice was sounding, This land was made for you and me. When the sun came shining and I was strolling, And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling, As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting This land was made for you and me. This Train is bound for glory |: This train is bound for glory, this train. :| This train is bound for glory, Don’t carry nothin’ but the righteous and the holy.

for we were young and sure to have our way. Lalala la lala … Then the busy years went rushin’ by us, we lost our starry motions on the way. If by chance I would see you in the tavern, we’d smile at one another and we’d say: Those were the days, my friend … Just tonight I stood before the tavern, nothing seemed the way it used to be. In the glass I saw a strange reflection. Was that lonely fellow really me? Those were the days, my friend …

Through the door there came familiar laughter I saw your face and heard you call my name. Oh, my friend, we’re older but no wiser, for in our hearts the dreams are still the same. Those were the days, my friend … Ticket to Ride Beatles

Tum-ba-la … Twilight A-Stealing Twilight a-stealing over the sea, Shadows a-falling dark on the lea, Borne on the night wind, voices of yore, Come from a far-off shore. Far away, beyond the starry sky, Where the lovelight never, never dies, Gleameth a mansion filled with delight, Sweet, happy home so bright. Voices of loved ones, songs of the past, Still linger round me, while life shall last, Cheering my pathway, while here I roam, Seeking my far-off home. Far away … Come in the twilight, come, come to me, Bringing sweet message over the sea; Lonely I wander, sadly I roam, Seeking my far-off home. Far away … Twist and Shout

Ah – ah – ah – ah Ukulele Lady I saw the splendor of the moonlight On Honolulu Bay There’s something tender in the moonlight On Honolulu Bay And all the beaches, Are filled with peaches, Who bring their ukes along And in the glimmer of the moonlight, They love to sing this song If you like Ukulele lady, Ukulele lady like a’you If you like to linger where it’s shady, Ukulele lady linger too If you kiss Ukulele lady, While you promise ever to be true And she sees another Ukulele, Lady foolin’ round with you Maybe she’ll sigh (an awful lot), Maybe she’ll cry (and maybe not) Maybe she’ll find someone else, By and by To sing to when it’s cool and shady Where the tricky wicky wacky woo If you like the Ukulele lady, Ukulele lady like a you She used to sing to me by moonlight, On Honolulu Bay Fond memories cling to me by moonlight, Although I’m far away Someday I’m going, Where the eyes are glowing And lips are made to kiss To see somebody in the moonlight, And hear the song I miss. If you like Ukulele lady …

till this hour has gone around and I’m gone on the rising tide‚ for to face Van Dieman’s land. It’s a bitter pill I swallow here to be rent from one so dear; we fought for justice not for gain, but the magistrate sent me away. Now kings will rule and the poor will toil and tear their hands as they tear the soil. But a day will come in the dawning age when an honest man sees an honest wage. Hold me now … Still the gunman rules and the widows pay a scarlet coat and a black beret. They thought that blood and sacrifice could out of death bring forth a life. Hold me now … Wabash Cannonball From the great Atlantic Ocean To the wide Pacific shore, From sunny California To ice-bound Labrador, She’s mighty tall and handsome, She’s known quite well by all, She’s the ’boes’ accommodation On the Wabash Cannonball Listen to the jingle, The rumble and the roar, As she glides along the woodlands, Through hills and by the shore Hear the mighty rush of the engine, Hear those lonesome hoboes squawl, While traveling through the jungle On the Wabash Cannonball 161

From the great Atlantic Ocean … This train, she runs to Memphis, Mattoon, and Mexico, She rolls through East St. Louis And she never does it slow, As she flies through Colorado, She gives an awful squawl, They tell her by her whistle – The Wabash Cannonball From the great Atlantic Ocean … Our eastern states are dandy, So the people always say, From New York to St. Louis And Chicago by the way, From the hills of Minnesota Where the rippling waters fall, No changes can be taken On the Wabash Cannonball From the great Atlantic Ocean … Now here’s to Boston Blackey, May his name forever stand, And always be remembered By the ’boes throughout the land, His earthly days are over And the curtains ’round him fall, We’ll carry him home to victory On the Wabash Cannonball From the great Atlantic Ocean … Wake up Little Susie Everly Brothers 1957

My boyhood friends and my own relations have all passed on now like melting snow. But I’ll spend my days in endless roaming, soft is the grass, my bed is free. Ah! to be back now in Carrickfergus, on that long road down to the sea. And in Kilkenny, it is reported, there are marble stones black as ink. With gold and silver I would support her, but I’ll sing no more now till I get a drink. I’m drunk today, and I’m seldom sober, a handsome rover from town to town.

No sweetness the senses can cheer which corruption and bribery bind; no brightness that gloom can e’er clear for honour’s the sum of the mind.

I’m bound for Shady Grove. Where the cheeks are red as the blooming rose and eyes of the prettiest brown She’s the darling of my heart, prettiest girl in town. Shady Grove … Peaches in the summertime, apples in the fall If I can’t have the one I love, I won’t have none at all. Shady Grove … Wish I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, I’d sew my gal to my coat-tails and down the road I’d go. Shady Grove … Some come here to fiddle and dance, some come here to tarry, Some come here to fiddle and dance, but I come here to marry. Shady Grove …

I drink to the death of her manhood those men who’d rather have died than to live in the cold chains of bondage to bring back their rights where denied. Oh, where are you now when we need you? What burns where the flame used to be? Are ye gone like the snows of last winter and will only our rivers run free?

As down the glen one Easter morn, to a city fair rode I‚ there armed lines of marching men in squadrons passed me by. No pipes did hum, no battle drum did sound its dread tat too but the Angelus bell o’er the Liffey swell rang out through the foggy dew.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds,

E

with her hair thrown over her shoulders,

tied up with a black velvet band. As I went walking down Broadway; not intending to stay very long I met with a frolicsome damsel, as she came tripping along. A watch she pulled out of her pocket, and slipped it right into my hand. On the very first day that I met her, bad luck to the black velvet band. Before judge and jury next morning, both of us did appear,

Right proudly high over Dublin town they flung out the flag of war. ’Twas better to die ’neath an Irish sky than at Suvla or Sud el Bar. And from the plains of Royal Meath strong men came hurrying through; while Brittania’s huns with their long range guns sailed in through the foggy dew. Oh, the night fell black and the rifles’ crack made “Perfidious Abion” reel. ’Mid the leaden rail, seven tongues of flame did shine o’er the lines of steel. By each shining blade, a prayer was said that to Ireland her sons be true. And when morning broke still the war flag shook out its fold in the foggy dew. 175

’Twas England bade our Wild Gees go that small nations might be free. But their lonely graves are by Suvla’s waves on the fringe of the Great North Sea. Oh, had they died by Pearse’s side or had fought with Cathal Brugha. Their names we’d keep where the Fenians sleep, ’neath the shroud of the foggy dew. But the bravest fell, and the requiem bell rang mournfully and clear, for those who died that Eastertide in the springtime of the year; while the world did gaze in deep amaze at those fearless men, but few, who bore the fight that freedom’s light might shine through the foggy dew. And back to the glen I rode again and my heart with grief was sore, for I parted then with valiant men whom I never shall see more. But to and fro in my dreams I go, and I’d kneel and pray for you, for slavery fled, oh glorious dead, when you fell in the foggy dew.

At the pattern dance you were held in trance as she tripped through a reel or a jig, and when her eyes she’d roll, she’d coax upon my soul a spud from a hungry pig. From Bantry Bay … I’ve traveled a bit, but never was hit, since my roving career began; but fair and square I surrendered thee to the charm of young Rosie McCann.

The Town I Loved so Well

In my memory I will always see, the town that I loved so well where our school played ball by the gasyard wall
C Em C C G C G D G Am 7 D D G C D G G D G

and we laughed through the smoke and smell. Going home in the rain running up the dark lane past the jail and down behind the fountain. Those were happy days in so many ways in the town I loved so well. In the early morning the shirt factory horn called women from Creggan, The Moor and The Bog, while the men on the dole played a mothers role, fed the children and then walked the dog. And when times got tough there was just about enough, but they saw it through without complaining, for deep inside was a burning pride for the town I loved so well. In my memory … There was music there in the Derry air like a language that we all could understand. I remember the day that I earned my first pay when I played in a small pick up band. There I spent my youth and to tell the truth I was sad to leave it all behind me, for I’d learned about life and I’d found a wife in the town I loved so well. In my memory … But when I’ve returned how my eyes have burned to see how a town could be brought to its knees

178

by the armoured cars and the bombed out bars and the gas that hangs on to every breeze. Now the army’s installed by that old gas yard wall and the damned barbed wire gets higher and higher with their tanks and their guns oh my God what have they done to the town I loved so well. In my memory … Now the music’s gone but they carry on, for their spirit’s been bruised never broken. They will not forget but their hearts are set on tomorrow and peace once again; for what’s done is done and what’s lost is lost and gone forever. I can only pray for a bright grand new day in the town I love so well. The Wild Rover (b 250)

And it’s no, nay, never … I drew from my pocket ten sovereigns bright and the landlady’s eyes opened wide with delight. She said, “you’ll have whiskeys and wines of the best and the words that I told you were only in jest.” And it’s no, nay, never … I’ll go home to my parents and confess what I’ve done and I’ll ask them to pardon their prodigal son. And when they forgive me, as oft’times before sure I will never play the wild rover no more. And it’s no, nay, never …

But now I’m returning with gold in great store

Salve Regina (b 54) Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae, vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve. Ad te clamamus, exules filii Evae. Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes in hac lacrimarum valle. Eia ergo, advocata nostra, illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte. Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui, nobis post hoc exilium ostende. O clemens, o pia, o dulcis virgo Maria. Non nobis Psalm 115 (113B) Non nobis Domine Domine, non nobis Domine; Sed nomini, sed nomini Tuo da gloriam. Not to us, Lord, not tu us, But to your name give the glory. Parce Domine (Translation p. 303) Parce Domine, parce populo tuo ne in aeternum irascaris nobis. Before the Break of Daylight Before the break of daylight We fervently keep vigil A hush befalls creation In silence sings the myst’ry. Our watchful eyes are seeking A Face within the darkness Our hearts pour forth desires Now cleansed and raised to God. The shadows round dispersing, The light of day transcending, 180

Our hope for days unending Now blossoms with the dawn. And soon, the swell of morning Will drench us in its sunlight. O Father, in your mercy, Bestow unto us life. We ask that on this new day Which dawn has set in motion, The kingdom of Christ Jesus Be spread throughout the earth. To You, O blessed Father, Your Word made flesh, our Savior, Your endless Love, the Spirit May praise be Yours forever. Amen. Dal sangue dell’Agnello riscattati (b 144) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Eastertide) 1 st q: F Dal sangue dell’Agnello riscattati, purificate in lui le nostre vesti, salvati e resi nuovi dall’Amore, a te, Cristo Signor, diciamo lode. Con te, siamo saliti sulla Croce, con te, nella tua morte, battezzati; in te noi siamo, Cristo, ormai risorti e in seno al Padre ritroviamo vita. O Cristo, è la tua vita immensa fonte di gioia che zampilla eternamente: splendore senza fine, in te s’immerge l’umana piccolezza dei redenti. Il nostro giorno scorre declinando: resta con noi, Signore, in questa sera, e la certezza della nostra fede illumini la notte che s’avanza. Fa che la nostra morte sia assorbita dalla luce gloriosa della Pasqua; e, morti ormai della tua stessa morte, viviamo in te, che sei la nostra vita.

O Padre di bontà, te lo chiediamo per mezzo di tuo Figlio, che è risorto, e per l’Amore eterno che ci guida verso la dolce luce del tuo volto. Amen. Del giorno giunti al termine Hymn of Night Prayer Del giorno giunti al termine o Creator degli esseri, la nostra attesa illumina, la luce eterna svelaci. Il nostro sonno vigili la tua pietà dolcissima, dal male che ci affascina il corpo stanco libera. Onnipotente ascoltaci, per noi Cristo ti supplica, che regna in tutti i secoli con te e il Santo Spirito. Amen. Dio che di chiara luce (b 145) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Tuesdays) Dio, che di chiara luce tessi la trama al giorno, accogli il nostro canto nella quiete del vespro. Ecco, il sole scompare all’estremo orizzonte, scende l’ombra e il silenzio sulle fatiche umane. Non si offuschi la mente nella notte del male, ma rispecchi serena il tuo volto di luce. Te la voce proclami, te canti il nostro cuore, o Dio uno e trino, te adori il nostro spirito. Amen.

Eterno Creatore del mondo Hymn of Morning Prayer (Tuesdays) 1 st q: C Eterno Creatore del mondo, la notte col giorno tu alterni, e all’uomo tu doni riposo, nel lento mutare dei tempi. È quasi trascorsa la notte, avvolge il silenzio le cose: ci alziamo a cantar le tue lodi, solerti, in preghiera vegliamo. Son queste le ore più grevi: chi soffre ritrovi speranza, si mondi ogni male, ogni colpa, la luce ci faccia più puri. L’attesa ci trovi fratelli, uniti e redenti da Cristo; più forti ci renda la fede e canti nel cuor la speranza. Al Padre cantiamo la lode, al Figlio, che è Luce da Luce, e lode allo Spirito Santo, che è fonte eterna di vita. Amen. Eterno Dio immutabile Hymn of Prayer During the Day Eterno Dio, immutabile, la fonte è in te dell’essere; nella tua pace immobile tu segni ai tempi il volgere. La vera luce donaci, le nostre vite vigila; e nel tramonto fulgido i cuori in te si immergano. Rendiamo gloria unanimi al Padre e all’Unigenito; e gloria al Santo Spirito, nei secoli dei secoli. Amen.

Fu luce la prima parola Hymn of Evening Prayer (Mondays) 1 st q: E Fu luce la prima parola, artefice sommo e sublime, e fu con la luce il creato, inizio ebbe il corso del tempo. Ai primi bagliori dell’alba, risponde il chiarore del vespro, e il cielo, che tingi di fuoco, proclama la grande tua gloria. Anelito nuovo alla vita inturgida tutte le cose, si ergono in cerca del sole e poi si riposano in pace. La pace più vera per noi è solo nel Cristo, tuo Figlio, che in alto levato da terra, attira a sé tutte le cose. Eterno pastore dell’uomo, ei guida i suoi passi, sicuro, nel buio che incombe sul mondo, ai pascoli veri di vita. Con canti sinceri, inni nuovi, per sempre sia gloria a te, Padre, al Figlio che tu ci hai donato e gloria allo Spirito Santo. Amen. Immersi nel grande mistero Hymn of Morning Prayer (Wednesdays) Immersi nel grande mistero che anima tutto il creato, cantiamo, nel giorno che nasce, l’immenso splendore del Padre. La luce che già trasfigura le tenebre opache del male, risvegli per noi la speranza del giorno di luce immortale.

La luce riveste le cose e svela la vita che nasce, sigillo d’eterna vittoria nel Cristo risorto da morte. A te, Dio, datore di luce, al Figlio, che è luce da luce, sia lode e allo Spirito Santo che accende di luce la vita. Amen. Innalzate nei cieli lo sguardo (b 146) Hymn of Morning Prayer (Advent) 1 st q: E Innalzate nei cieli lo sguardo: la salvezza di Dio è vicina; risvegliate nel cuore l’attesa, per accogliere il Re della gloria. Sorgerà dalla casa di David il Messia da tutti invocato; prenderà da una vergine il corpo per potenza di Spirito Santo. Vieni, o Re messaggero di pace, reca al mondo il sorriso di Dio! Nessun uomo ha mai visto il suo volto, solo tu puoi svelarci il mistero. Ora visita noi nella fede, per donarci la vita di Dio: tu ci offri il tuo corpo e il tuo sangue, a salvezza del nostro peccato. Noi crediamo che all’ultimo giorno tornerai con potenza e splendore, per premiare in eterno gli eletti e punire col fuoco i cattivi. Fa’ che allora guardiamo sereni il tuo volto raggiante di gloria, per seguirti lassù dove regni con il Padre e lo Spirito Santo. Amen.

L’aurora risplende di luce (b 143) Hymn of Morning Prayer (Sundays, Eastertide) 1st q: E L’aurora risplende di luce, il cielo si veste di canti, la terra inneggia gioiosa a Cristo risorto dai morti. La vita ha distrutto la morte, l’amore ha lavato il peccato; e Cristo, splendore di gloria, illumina il nostro mattino. La notte è ormai tutta trascorsa nel nuovo fulgore del giorno, con l’anima piena di gioia, in lui ci scopriamo fratelli. A noi, come già a Maddalena, il Cristo risorto si sveli, c’incontri e ci chiami per nome colui ch’era morto ed è vivo. Ritorni sul nostro cammino e la sua parola c’infiammi: di nuovo, nel pane spezzato, vedremo il suo volto risorto. Al nostro raduno concorde un ospite nuovo s’aggiunga: confermi la debole fede mostrando le piaghe gloriose. In questa letizia pasquale, rifatti di nuovo innocenti, a Cristo cantiamo la lode, al Padre e allo Spirito Santo. Amen. Liberati dal giogo del male (b 147) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Lent) 1 st q: A Liberati dal giogo del male, battezzati nell’acqua profonda, noi giungiamo alla terra di prova

dove i cuori saran resi puri. Dal paese d’Egitto ci hai tratti e cammini con noi nel deserto, per condurci alla santa montagna sulla quale s’innalza la Croce. Tu sei l’acqua che sgorga dal sasso, sei la manna che sazia la fame, sei la nube che guida il cammino e sei legge che illumina i cuori. Su te, roccia che t’alzi fra noi, troveremo difesa ed appoggio e berremo alla fonte di vita che ci lava dai nostri peccati. Tu ci guidi nell’Esodo nuovo alla gioia profonda di Pasqua: dalla morte passando alla vita giungeremo alla terra promessa. Amen. Nel primo chiarore del giorno (b 148) Hymn of Morning Prayer (Mondays) 1 st q: D Nel primo chiarore del giorno, vestite di luce e silenzio, le cose si destan dal buio, com’era al principio del mondo.

O Cristo splendore divino Hymn of Morning Prayer (Fridays) 1st q: C O Cristo, splendore divino, tu avvolgi con doni di luce il mondo che a vita si desta, levandolo al Padre in offerta. La grazia di questo mattino trasformi la terra in altare e l’opera tutta dell’uomo diventi oblazione di lode. Tra poco saremo saziati dal tuo Sacramento vitale, che fonde le nostre esistenze nel mistico Corpo, tua Chiesa. Davanti al tuo volto di luce, dirigi il fluire del tempo, e al giorno che è senza tramonto conduci il tuo popolo, o Cristo. A te, luce vera del mondo, al Padre sorgente di luce, al Fuoco, che è luce d’amore, in questo mattino sia gloria. Amen.

Per te solo è chiara la notte (b 149) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Christmastide) 1st q: E Per te solo è chiara la notte, e le tenebre son come luce, generato dal seno del Padre nell’eterno splendore dei cieli. O Parola possente di Dio, tuo è il tempo, riempi ogni spazio, per te il mondo è stato creato, tu sei l’alfa e l’omega di tutto. Ineffabile grande mistero! Canti il cielo ed esulti la terra: oggi nasci da Vergine intatta, rivestito di carne mortale. Come un povero vieni tra noi, ed il regno dei cieli ci annunci; doni al mondo la vita di Dio, ci redimi col prezzo del sangue. Benedetta per sempre la terra! Qual rugiada disceso è il perdono, nuovo amore si effonde su noi: adoriamo in silenzio il mistero! Per il Figlio che tu ci hai donato, nello Spirito, fonte di vita, a te, Padre, sia gloria nei cieli, e sia pace agli uomini in terra. Amen.

Prima che sorga l’alba (b 150) Hymn of Morning Prayer (Thursdays, Saturdays, Lent) 1 st q: A Prima che sorga l’alba, vegliamo nell’attesa; tace il creato e canta nel silenzio il mistero. Il nostro sguardo cerca un volto nella notte; in cuore a Dio s’innalza più puro il desiderio. E mentre, lieve, l’ombra cede al chiaror nascente, fiorisce la speranza del giorno che non muore. Presto l’aurora in cielo ci inonderà di luce; la tua misericordia, o Padre, ci dia vita. E questo nuovo giorno, che l’alba per noi schiude, dilati in tutto il mondo il regno del tuo Figlio. A te, o Padre santo, all’unico tuo Verbo, all’infinito Amore, sia lode in ogni tempo. Amen. Raggiante fra tenebre dense (b 151) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Advent ) 1st q: F # Raggiante fra tenebre dense viene tra noi Gesù, la luce vera; cammineran le genti al suo fulgore, a lui si volgeranno con amore. La via prepariamo per lui, esulteremo innanzi al nostro Dio che viene a noi qual fonte di salvezza,

che viene a noi con equità ed amore. Venuto a redimere l’uomo, l’attira a sé con umiltà e mitezza; la fedeltà e la grazia manifesta, presente in mezzo a noi sarà per sempre. Ai poveri porta l’annunzio: saranno i primi nel regno dei cieli; saran chiamati popolo di Dio, farà con loro un’alleanza eterna. Un giorno avrà fine l’attesa: saranno cieli nuovi e terra nuova! Dice il Signore: “Ecco, vengo presto!” Dice la sposa: “Sì, vieni, Signore!” Amen. Risplenda nella notte una gran luce Hymn of Morning Prayer (Advent) Risplenda nella notte una gran luce discenda nel deserto la rugiada, getti virgulti il ceppo inaridito e germini la terra il salvatore. Esulta d’allegrezza, o tu che piangi, perché il tuo Dio sta per venirti incontro, alto risuoni un grido nel deserto: “La strada preparate al Dio che viene.” Al lungo desiderio delle genti risponderà un Dio fatto bambino, ed uscirà dal grembo di una donna colui che regge tutto l’universo. Il mondo intero è vigile, in attesa che l’ombra della notte si diradi; alzate il vostro capo e contemplate: all’orizzonte già si leva Cristo. A lui, ch’è il vero sole di giustizia cantiamo nell’avvento della vita, desiderando l’ultimo ritorno che tutti ci consumi nell’amore. Amen.

Sempre cantiam al rifiorir del giorno Hymn of Morning Prayer (Lent) 1st q: G Sempre cantiam al rifiorir del giorno, onnipotente Dio, le tue lodi: sei fonte di bontà, tu sommo bene, e misericordioso nel perdono. Con cuore aperto e colmo di fiducia, dinanzi a te, Signore, ci prostriamo: allora l’umiltà diviene luce, la via alla verità a noi dischiude. Nel nostro nulla solo in te speriamo, in te la vita è nella sua pienezza: la doni a noi per sempre nel tuo figlio, che nel suo grande amore s’è immolato. Rifioriranno in lui tutte le cose nel giorno della luce e della gloria; verrà quel giorno, lo celebreremo, un canto nuovo allora canteremo. O Trinità, nel gaudio ti adoriamo o luce indefettibile ed eterna, con il perdono dona nuova vita e canteremo sempre le tue lodi. Amen. Sole che t’alzi Hymn of Morning Prayer (Christmastide) Sole che t’alzi nell’ombra di morte, oggi tu splendi alto sul creato, e fai brillare su tutti i nostri volti la primitiva immagine divina. Parola eterna che rifletti il Padre, sei l’uomo nuovo in una carne santa, il compimento di promesse antiche, la gioia e la salvezza della terra. Agnello mite, nato da Maria, in te la creazione è liberata: il cielo ha fatto pace con la terra e l’universo canta la tua gloria.

Per te segnati con sigillo eterno, siamo rinati ormai a nuova vita e nella gioia d’esser resi figli possiam chiamare Dio col nome: “Padre”. Emmanuele, dolce Dio vicino, che hai posto la tua tenda in mezzo a noi, in te, che sei il “sì” senza riserva, noi rispondiamo a Dio il nostro “Amen”.

Pange lingua gloriosi Thomas Aquinas (b 58 [5–6]) 1st q: E 1. Pange lingua gloriosi corporis mysterium, sanguinisque pretiosi, quem in mundi pretium fructus ventris generosi rex effudit gentium. 2. Nobis datus, nobis natus ex intacta Virgine, et in mundo conversatus, sparso verbi semine, sui moras incolatus miro clausit ordine. 3. In suprema nocte coenae recumbus cum fratribus observata lege plene cibis in legalibus, cibum turbae duodenae se dat suis manibus. 4. Verbum caro, panem verum Verbo carnem efficit: fitque sanguis Christi merum, et si sensus deficit, ad firmandum cor sincerum sola fides sufficit. 5. Tantum ergo Sacramentum veneremur cernui: et antiquum documentum novo cedat ritui: praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui. 6. Genitori, Genitoque laus et iubilatio, salus, honor, virtus quoque sit et benedictio: Procedenti ab utroque compar sit laudatio. Amen.

Aeterne rerum conditor (Ad galli cantum) Saint Ambrose (b 15) 1st q: G 1. Aeterne rerum conditor, noctem diemque qui regis, et temporum das tempora ut alleves fastidium. 2. Praeco diei iam sonat, noctis profundae pervigil, nocturna lux viantibus a nocte noctem segregans. 3. Hoc excitatus lucifer solvit polum caligine; hoc omnis erronum chorus vias nocendi deserit. 4. Hoc nauta vires colligit pontique mitescunt freta; hoc, ipse Petra Ecclesiae, canente, culpam diluit. 5. Surgamus ergo strenue: gallus iacentes excitat et somnolentes increpat, gallus negantes arguit. 6. Gallo canente spes redit, aegris salus refunditur, mucro latronis conditur, lapsis fides revertitur. 7. Jesu, labantes respice et nos videndo corrige; si respicis, lapsus cadunt fletuque culpa solvitur. 8. Tu, lux, refulge sensibus mentisque somnum discute, te nostra vox primum sonet et vota solvamus tibi.

Pater mi (b 46) Pater mi praecor te: ut tu vis fac de me. Miser sum, Deus scis, salvum fac sicut vis. Nemo tunc nocet me, cum ex corde credo te. Virtus mea fugit me: salus mea apud te. Caecus sum quaero te, lapsus sum leva me. Manus tua fecit me: nullum praecor praeter te. Pater mi praecor te, ut tu vis fac de me. Nihil sum sine te: ut tu vis fac de me. Jesu dulcis memoria Gregorian Hymn (b 33; translation p. 299) 1st q: A Hymn of Evening Prayer (Thursdays) 1. Jesu dulcis memoria, dans vera cordis gaudia sed super mel et omnia eius dulcis praesentia. 2. Nil canitur suavius, nil auditur iucundius, nil cogitatur dulcius, quam Jesus Dei Filius. 3. Jesu spes paenitentibus, quam pius es petentibus! Quam bonus te quaerentibus! Sed quid invenientibus? 4. Nec lingua valet dicere, nec littera exprimere: expertus potest credere, quid sit Jesum diligere. 5. Sis Jesu nostrum gaudium, qui es futurum praemium: sit nostra in te gloria, per cuncta semper saecula. Amen.

Christe cunctorum (b 25) 1. Christe, cunctorum dominator alme, mente Supremi generate Patris, supplicum voces pariterque carmen cerne benignus. 2. Cerne, quod Templi, Deus, ad decorem plebs Tua supplex resonet per Aedem, annuo cuius redeunt colenda tempore festa. 3. Haec Domus surgit tibi dedicata rito, ubi sumit populus sacratum corpus ex aris, bibit et beati sanguinis haustum. 4. Hic sacrosancti latices nocentum, diluunt culpas, perimuntque noxas: chrismate invictum genus et creatur christicolarum. 5. Hic salus aegris, medicina fessis, lumen et caecis datur: hic reatu, Christe, nos solvis; timor atque moeror pellitur omnis. 6. Daemonis saevi perit hic rapina: pervicax monstrum pavet, et retentos deserens artus, fugit in remotas ocyus auras. 7. Hic locus Regis vocitatur aula nempe caelestis, rutilansque caeli porta, quae vitae patriam petentes accipit omnes. 8. Turbo quem nullus quatit, aut vagantes diruunt venti, penetrantque nimbi, hanc domum tetris piceus tenebris tartarus horret. 9. Ergo te votis petimus sereno annuas vultu; famulos gubernes, qui tui summo celebrant amore gaudia templi.

Grancini (1605–1669) (b 30; translation p. 295) Dulcis Christe, o bone Deus, o amor meus, o vita mea, o salus mea, o gloria mea. Tu es Creator, tu es Salvator mundi. Te volo, te quaero, te adoro, o dulcis Amor te adoro, o care Jesu. Ubi caritas (b 62) 1st q: F Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est. Congregavit nos in unum Christi amor, exultemus, et in ipso iucundemur! Timeamus, et amemus Deum vivum. Et ex corde diligamus nos sincero. Ubi caritas … Simul ergo cum in unum congregamur ne nos mente dividamur caveamus; cessent iurgia maligna, cessent lites et in medio nostri sit Christus Deus. Ubi caritas …

Simul quoque cum beatis videamus glorianter vultum tuum, Christe Deus; gaudium, quod est immensum, atque probum, saecula per infinita saeculorum. Amen. Ave generosa Hildegard of Bingen (b 21) Ave, generosa, gloriosa et intacta puella, tu pupilla castitatis, tu materia sanctitatis, quae Deo placuit. Nam haec superna infusio in te fuit, quod supernum verbum in te carnem induit. Tu candidum lilium, quod Deus ante omnem creaturam inspexit. O pulcherrima et dulcissima; quam valde Deus in te delectabatur! Cum amplexione caloris sui in te posuit ita quod filius eius de te lactatus est. Venter enim tuus gaudium habuit, cum omnis caelestis symphonia de te sonuit. Quia, virgo, filium Dei portasti ubi castitas tua in Deo claruit. Viscera tua gaudium habuerunt, sicut gramen super quod ros cadit cum ei viriditatem infundit; ut et in te factum est, o mater omnis gaudii. Nunc omnis Ecclesia in gaudio rutilet ac in symphonia sonet propter dulcissimam virginem 195

et laudabilem Mariam Dei genitricem. Amen. Ave maris stella (b 23) Hymn of Evening Prayer (Saturdays) 1. Ave, maris stella, Dei mater alma atque semper virgo, felix caeli porta. 2. Sumens illud Ave, Gabrielis ore, funda nos in pace, mutans Evae nomen. 3. Solve vincla reis, profer lumen caecis, mala nostra pelle, bona cuncta posce. 4. Monstra te esse matrem, sumat per te precem qui, pro nobis natus, tulit esse tuus. 5. Virgo singularis, inter omnes mitis, nos, culpis solutos, mites fac et castos. 6. Vitam praesta puram, iter para tutum, ut videntes Jesum, semper collaetemur. 7. Sit laus Deo Patri, summo Christo decus, Spiritui Sancto honor, tribus unus. Amen.

Virgo sancta, cerne quanta perferamus iugiter tentamenta et sustenta nos ut stemus fortiter. Esto tutrix et adiutrix christiani populi; pacem praesta, ne molesta nos perturbent saecula. Amen.

LAUDE AND TROUBADOUR-SONGS A la clarté 13 th century (b 73) A la clarté qui tout enlumina nostre gran tenebrour, a la dame qui si grant mecine a contre toute dolour, doivent venir trestuit li pecheour et devenir si serjant nuit et jour; n’autrui ne doit nus doner son cuer, son cors ne s’amour fors a la douce mere au Creatour, Vierge pucele et de si saint atour rose est novelle et des dames la flour. Amor dolçe senza pare Lauda, 14 th century (b 74) Amor dolze senza pare, se’ tu Cristo per amare. Amor, senza comincianza, se’ tu Padre in substanza. In Trinità per amanza. Filio e Spiritu regnare.

Tu, amore che congiungi cui più ami spesso pungi; omni piaga poi che l’ungi senza unguento fai saldare. Anime affaticate et sitibonde Lauda Anime affaticate et sitibonde, venite all’onde vive ove v’invita la vera vita; ove la lunga sete spegner potrete. La lunga sete natural che sempre, con dure tempre, il cor arde e tormenta ne il foco allenta; ne mai se ne arriva all’acqua viva. All’acqua viva che, con voglie accese, donna humil chiese alla fontana eterna, ch’in sua cisterna, il mondo si suave, acqua non ave. Alle cisterne, ai morti stagni, ai laghi vanno i cuor vaghi pur del sommo bene, ma di tai vene il ber sempre maggiore fa il nostro ardore. Venite dunque all’acque dolci e chiare, torbide e amare son l’acque d’Egitto; il cammin dritto hor prenda e saglia il monte chi brama il fonte. Ave donna santissima Lauda, 13 th century (b 75) Ave donna santissima, Regina potentissima. La virtù celestïale con la grazia supernale en te virgo virginale, discese benignissima. La nostra redenzïone prese incarnazïone in te santa concezïone

da te Madre purïssima. Altresì per tuo candore sovra il mondo del dolore venne il sole dell’amore nei cieli beatissima. Chanson de mai Song of the Troubadours, 13 th century, attributed to St. Louis IX L’autre hier m’apparaît le mois de mai Regis aeterni munere; et par un matin je me levais mundum proponens fugere. En un plaisant pré m’enoutrais psalmos intendens psallere: La Mère au Dieu vint me trouver, iam lucis orto sidere. Mère de Dieu vrai, sans reproche, fons pietatis maximae, de Celui m’envoyez confort salutem praestans animae; gardez-moi dans les mêmes infâmes, qui me tentant saepissime; Paradis montre à la mort, rerum Creator optime. Da mi conforto Dio Lauda (b 78) Da mi conforto, Dio et allegranza, et carità perfecta et amoranza. Da mi conforto, Dio et ardore, a caritade lega lo mio core; che non mi sia vietato lo tuo amore, in me non possa nulla ria indignanza. Da mi letitia, gaudio e diporto, e nel mio cor da’ pianto di conforto; 199

ch’io suspiri e canti e stia sì dotto, ch’io non perda la tua fin amanza. De la crudel morte Lauda, 13 th century (b 78) De la crudel morte del Cristo ogn’hom pianga amaramente. Quando Juderi Cristo pilïaro, d’ogne parte lo circumdaro, le sue mane strecto legaro, commo ladro, villanamente. Trenta denar fo lo mercato che fece Juda, et fo pagato: mellio li fora non esser nato ch’aver peccato sì duramente. De la crudel morte … A la colonna fu spolïato, per tutto ’l corpo flagellato; d’ogne parte fo ’nsanguinato commo falso, amaramente. Tutti gridaro ad alta voce: “Moia ’l falso, moia veloce; sbrigatamente sia posto en croce, che non turbi tutta la gente”. De la crudel morte … Li soi compagni l’abbandonaro, tutti fugiero e lui lassaro, stando tormento forte ed amaro de lo suo corpo, per la gente. Molt’era trista Santa Maria quando ’l suo figlio en croce vedea; cum gran dolore forte piangea dicendo: “Trista, lassa, dolente”. De la crudel morte …

Egli è il tuo bon Jesù Lauda Egli è il tuo bon Jesù che ti darà il suo amor. Egli è Jesù, sì, egli è Jesù, egli è il tuo bon Jesù. Che ti darà il suo amor. Laude novella Lauda (b 81) Laude novella sia cantata a l’alta donna encoronata. 1. Fresca vergene donzella, primo fior, rosa novella, tutto ’l mondo a te s’appella; nella bonor fosti nata. 2. Fonte se’ d’acqua surgente, madre de Dio vivente; tu se’ luce de la gente, sovra li angeli esaltata. 3. Tu se’ verga, tu se’ fiore, tu se’ luna de splendore; voluntà avemo e core de venir a te, ornata! 4. Archa se’ d’umilitade, vaso d’ogne sanctitade: en te venne deitade; d’angel foste salutata. 5. Pregot’, avocata mia, che ne metti en bona via: questa nostra compania siate sempre commendata. Ma vïele Gautier de Coincy (1178–ca. 1236) (b 82) Ma vïele, vïeler vieut un biau son de la bele qui seur toutes a biau nom.

En qui Dieux devenir hom voult jadis, dont chantent en Paradis anges et archanges a haut ton. Porte dou ciel, du Paradis planche et ponz, sourse de miel, de doucer pecine et fonz; d’enfer qui tant est parfonz, nous desfen, qui en doute a pauvre sens car enfer n’a rive ni fond! Douce Dame, par mout vraie entencïon cors et ame, met je en ta protecïon prie sanz delatïon ten fil douz qu’il nos face vivre touz in terra viventium. (Amen.) Magdalena degna de laudare Magdalena degna de laudari sempre degge Dio per noi pregare! Ben è degna d’esser laudata, Che foe peccatrice nominata: Per servire fo ben meritata. Jesu Cristo volse seguitare. Con molta umilitade lo seguìo Et cum perfetta fede senza rio: Quando Cristo predicar audio, Del suo amore prese ad inflammare. A li piedi de Cristo s’inchinòe Et molto dolcemente li bascioe: E di lagrime tutti li bagnoe, Co’ capelli presele asciugare. Mère au Sauveur Troubadour, 13 th century (b 84) Vierge, Pulcelle royale, en qui le doux Jésus Christ, le doux glorieux joyau, fut, et conçu et nourri; bien fut votre cœur empli de sa grâce et son amour, jusqu’à ce que Saint-Esprit y eut le Fils-Dieu assis.

Douce Dame impériale, merveilleuse fleur de lis, verger de toute beauté, où le saint Fruit fut cueilli, souverain rosier éclos, vous apportâtes la fleur, l’odeur par qui Paradis nous fut ouvert et promis. Ognun m’entenda 15 th century (b 85) Ognun m’entenda divotamente lo pianto che fece Maria dolente del suo figliol tanto dilicato. O Jesu Christo, bello mio figlio, o Jesu bello, bianco e vermeglio, o de la trista Madre el conseglio su ne la croce già conficato. O côr soave 16 th century (b 107) O côr soave, côr del mio Signore, ferito gravemente, non da coltel pungente, ma dallo stral che fabbricò l’amore, che fabbricò l’amore. O côr soave, quand’io ti rimiro post’in tant’agonia, manca l’anima mia, né voce s’ode più, né mai sospiro, né più né mai sospiro. Troppo perde il tempo Jacopone da Todi (b 93) Troppo perde il tempo chi ben non t’ama, dolc’amor Jesù, sovr’ogni amore. 1. Amor, chi t’ama non sta ozïoso, tanto li par dolze de te gustare ma tutto sor vive desideroso come te possa stretto più amare; chè tanto sta per te lo cor gioioso: 201

chi non sentisse nol saprie parlare quant’è dolc’a gustare lo tuo savore. 2. Dulcior che tolli forza ad ogni amaro et ogne cosa muti in tua dulcezza; questo sanno li sancti che’l provaro che feciar dolze morte in amarezza ma confortolli el dolze latovare di te Jesù che vensar ogni asprezza, tanto fosti suave in li lor cori. 3. Savor cui non si trova simillianza; o lasso! Lo mio cor poco t’asaggia; null’altra cosa non m’è consolanza, se tutto ’l mondo avesse e te non agio. O dolc’amor, Jesù in cui ho speranza Tu regi mio cor che da te non caggia, ma sempre più restringa ’l tuo dolzore. 4. Cor che te non sente ben pò star tristo, Jesù, letitia e gaudio de la gente; solazo non pot’essar senza Cristo; tanpino ch’eo non t’amo ben fervente! Chi far potesse totto ogni altro acquisto e te non aggia di tutt’è perdente; e senza te sirebbe in amarore. 5. Amaro in nullo coro pote stare cui tua dolcezza dona condimento: ma tuo savor, Jesù, non pò gustare chi lassa te per altro intendimento. Non sa né può lo cor terreno amare sì gran celestïal delectamento: non vede lume, Cristo, in tuo splendore. 6. Splendor che doni a tutto ’l mondo luce amor, Jesù, de li angeli bellezza, cielo e terra per te se conduce e splende in tutte cose tua fortezza: ognumque creatura a te s’aduce ma solo ’l peccator el tuo amor sprezza, e pàrtise da te, suo Creatore. 7. Scripti sul sancto libro de la vita, per tua pietà, Jesù, ne rappresenta: la tua scriptura già non sia fallita, el nome che portam de te non menta. 202

La mente nostra fa’ di te condita, dulcissimo Jesù, si che te senta et strittamente t’ami con ardore. 8. Servire a te, Jesù, mi’ amoroso, più soav’è che nul altro delecto; non può saper chi di te sta otïoso quant’è dolze ad amar te con affecto: gemai el cor non trova altro riposo si non se en te, Jesù, amor perfecto, che de li tuoi servi se’ consolatore. Tutor dicendo Lauda, 13 th century (b 96; translation p. 306) 1. Tutor dicendo, di lui non tacendo, laudandol cum cantare Jesù, Jesù, Jesù dolce ad amare. 2. Sempre l’atendo, col mio cor gaudendo, fa mi rallegrare, 3. Non mi ritegno, da mi’ gran sostegno, e vogliol pur chiamare. 4. Vo’ che mi dica la mia dolce vita, che mi farà salvare. 5. L’anima mia cattiva, et mendica, degna è d’amor dare. 6. Ch’i’ son dolente, con molta fatica; fa mi consolare! 7. Amor diletto, del mio cor se’ vita, or damit’a trovare! 8. Tra’ mi a te di questo gran tormento, chè vivo in dolorare! 9. Ch’io non ti perda per mio fallimento, cum falso tentare. 10. Vivo in paura di te mia dolzura; come ne posso fare?

11. Tu se’ il mio áire, io son tua creatura; non m’abandonare! 12. Tu sì m’ài detto [amor mio diletto], Ch’i’ chegia faràimi dare. 13. Et io adimando Jesu benedetto, di lui vo’ pagare! 14. Non averò povertà, né difetto, e vo’ con teco stare! Vero amor è Gesù 17 th century (b 113) Vero amor è Gesù, che salute ne dà a chi segue virtù. Egli moriva in croce per me. Mio buon Gesù, mio buon Gesù, non ti partir da me. Voi ch’amate lo Criatore Lauda (b 98) Voi ch’amate lo Criatore, ponete mente a lo meo dolore. Ch’io son Maria co’ lo cor tristo, la quale avea per figliuol Cristo: la speme mia e dolce acquisto fue crocifixo per li peccatori. Capo bello e delicato, come ti veggio stare enchinato; li tuoi capelli di sangue intrecciati, fin a la barba ne va i’rrigore. Bocca bella e delicata, come ti veggio stare asserrata; di fiele e aceto fosti abbeverata, trista e dolente, dentr’al mio core

Per un mondo meno brutto quanti giorni e quanti mesi, per cacciare alla malora le carogne dei borghesi! Ma i compagni furon forti e si presero il potere; e i miei amici furon morti e li vidi io cadere. Ora tu dimmi come può sperare un uomo che ha in mano tutto, ma non ha il perdono? Come può sperare un uomo quando il sangue è già versato, quando l’odio in tutto il mondo nuovamente ha trionfato?

Vide le luci in mezzo al mare pensò alle notti là in America. Ma erano solo le lampare e la bianca scia di un’elica. Sentì il dolore nella musica, si alzò dal pianoforte, ma quando vide la luna uscire da una nuvola gli sembrò più dolce anche la morte. Guardò negli occhi la ragazza, quegli occhi verdi come il mare, poi all’improvviso uscì una lacrima e lui credette di affogare. 249

Te voglio bene assaie … Potenza della lirica dove ogni dramma è un falso: che con un po’ di trucco e con la mimica puoi diventare un altro. Ma due occhi che ti guardano così vicini e veri ti fan scordare le parole, confondono i pensieri. Così diventa tutto piccolo, anche le notti là in America. Ti volti e vedi la tua vita come la scia di un’elica. Ma sì, è la vita che finisce, ma lui non ci pensò poi tanto. Anzi, si sentiva già felice e ricominciò il suo canto.

Si me mantengo en la huella la verdad me encontrará. Y quiero ver el sol de un nuevo amanecer, que construiremos juntos, unidos por la fe. Y quiero ver el sol que alumbre una vez mas, el destino del hombre es un largo caminar. Ahora es tiempo, siempre es tiempo de empezar una vez mas, de asumir todos lo riesgos, de vivir con libertad.

El mar Clara Fontana / Rafael Andreo 1999 Cuando nace el río entre el valle y la montaña el tenue sonido del agua que brota dice ya: el mar, el mar. Al bajar con fuerza Río joven por las rocas en tu blanca espuma un grito incansable: ¡Dónde está! El mar, el mar. Perdido en la llanura busco donde descansar tu rostro amigo despierta un deseo casi dormido: el mar, el mar. Cual gaviota blanca volando sin freno la estela de tus alas sostenga mi vuelo. Al fin de la vida cumplido el camino de tu mano, amigo, Arribe a la mar.

De una sola pa labra todo y todo dice una sola pa labra. Ya no hay cosa que nos sea extraña, se nos ha dado todo conocer. Ya ni el tiempo tiene su momento ni el espacio sus cosas de paso. En El todo tiene un solo centro, en El vivimos y nos movemos.

Tanto correr pa’ llegar a ningún lado. Y estaba donde na cí lo que buscaba por al lí. Es oro la amistad que no se compra ni vende. Sólo se da cuando en el pecho se siente.

Vuestra pues que me lla masteis, Vu estra porque me esperasteis Vu estra porque non me perdí. ¿ Qué mandáis ha cer de mí? ¿Qué mandáis oh buen Señor, que haga tan vil criado? ¿Cuál oficio le habéis dado a este esclavo pecador? Dulce esposo y Redentor pues por vuestra me ofrecí, ¿qué mandáis hacer de mí? Haga fruto o no lo haga, esté callando o hablando, muéstrame la ley, mi llaga goce de evangelio hablando. Esté penando o gozando sólo vos en mí vivís, ¿qué mandáis hacer de mí? Veis aquí mi corazón, yo lo pongo en vuestra palma, mi cuerpo, mi vida y alma, mis entrañas y aflicción. Veisme aquí, oh dulce Amor, Amor dulce veisme aquí, ¿qué mandáis hacer de mí?

und aus den Wiesen stei get der weiße Nebel wunder bar. Wie ist die Welt so stille und in der Dämmrung Hülle so traulich und so hold als eine stille Kammer, wo ihr des Tages Jammer verschlafen und vergessen sollt. Seht ihr den Mond dort stehen? Er ist nur halb zu sehen und ist doch rund und schön. So sind wohl manche Sachen, die wir getrost belachen, weil unsere Augen sie nicht sehn. Wir stolzen Menschenkinder sind eitel arme Sünder und wissen gar nicht viel. Wir spinnen Luftgespinste und suchen viele Künste und kommen weiter von dem Ziel. Gott, laß dein Heil uns schauen, auf nichts Vergänglichs trauen, nicht Eitelkeit uns freun. Laß uns einfältig werden und vor dir hier auf Erden wie Kinder fromm und fröhlich sein. So legt euch denn, ihr Brüder, in Gottes Namen nieder; kalt ist der Abendhauch. Verschon uns, Gott mit Strafen und laß uns ruhig schlafen, und unsren kranken Nachbarn auch! Heidenröslein

TRANSLATIONS
Abraham (p. 260) Ref. Abraham, you must go, / leave these people alone, / take your stick and then go / leave your home. / Abraham, you must go, / leave these dead alone, / take the Gospel into your hand / and leave your home. 1. Go into the desert / to look for the light / which is in God. 2. Go, do not turn back / walk until daybreak, / hold God’s hand. 3. Then you will see / golden seeds shine / in the summer sky. Adiós con el corazón (p. 266) 1. Farewell with my heart / because I cannot say it with my soul. / Saying goodbye to you / I am dying. 2. You will be the goodness of my soul / you will be the goodness of my life. / You will be the proud bird / who sings happily in the morning. Al mattino (p. 204) 1. In the morning, Lord, / my amphora is empty at the source, / and in the vibrant, clear air / I know that you can make me great, Lord. 2. And the hours of the day, / in the morning are the tender clay of Your glory, / Lord. I have but one desire – / to see You – and that is the morning. Apparirà (p. 206) Ref. The Lord of all mankind / will appear in all his splendor; / there is the dawn that you are waiting for, / you who are in the darkness; / He is like a child / in the desolate town, / He is the God of every goodness. 1. He gave Israel, who escaped from evil, / the law in the desert; / but Israel was still too much a child / to remain faithful to his love. / He put Aaron, / as a font of eternal forgiveness, / besides Moses who, solitary and faithful, / transformed the rock into water. 2. But Israel, after receiving the law, / asked the Lord for a king, / because the people were still like children / and couldn’t give themselves order. / So they had David the valiant, / the splendor of Solomon, / and then all the kings who betrayed / Yahweh’s ancient covenant. 3. By the waters of Babylon / a people cries / from spring until autumn / about their years of sorrow. / There are no songs, no feasts, / because there is no prophet / to bring a new hope / to see Sion again. Ave Maria, Splendore del Mattino (p. 207) 1. Hail Mary, splendor of the morning, / your gaze is pure and your heart is humble. / May the tenderness of your true love protect your people on their path. Ref. Mother, I am not worthy to look at you, / but let me hear your voice. / Allow me to bring your peace to all, / so that they may know and love you. 2. Mother, you who run to the aid of your children, / may you allow no one to stray, / sustain his cross and his path, / may he always walk among us. Ave Regina caelorum (p. 196) Hail, queen of heaven, / hail, Mistress of angels, / Hail, holy root / from whom the light of the world came. / Rejoice, glorious virgin / sublime in your beauty. / Hail, wonderful Virgen / and pray Christ the Lord for us. Balada de caridade (p. 286) 1. For me rain on my head is a lullaby, / but for my poor brother, the cold rain / penetrates in his house and forms mud on the floor. Ref. How can I be happy / if I have closed my heart / to my poor brother / and refused him my love. 2. For me the wind that blows is a melody. / But my poor brother hears the wind, anguished, / because the wind, this wicked one, destroys his hut. 3. How can I sleep peacefully if in the day that passed / I have stayed with my arms folded? Ballata del potere (p. 208) 1. I used to say it all day long, / “This world isn’t fair”! / Even at night, I thought, / “This life is flat”. / And I used to say, / “You damned bourgeois. It’s your fault … / the fault of the bosses, / and we’re just poor little nothings. / And the rest of us, / always there in our factories / with no time to think / from morning till night.” Ref. Let’s go comrades, let’s turn everything upside down / and build a world that’s less ugly. 2. To have a world that’s less ugly, / how many days, how

293

many months, / in order to throw / the bourgeois corpses into ruin! / But the comrades were strong, / and they took power. / My friends were dead, / and I saw them fall. Ref. Now tell me how a man / who has everything but forgiveness can hope? 3. How can a man hope / when blood has already been shed, / when hate has triumphed / anew all over the world? / We need Someone / who will free us from evil, / because the whole world / has remained exactly the same. Ballata dell’amore vero (p. 209) I would like to love you / as God loves you, / with the same passion, / with the same strength, / with the same fidelity that I do not have. 1. While my love / is small like a child, / alone without his mother, / lost in a garden. I would like to love you / as God loves you, / with the same tenderness, / with the same faith, / with the same freedom that I do not have. 2. While my love / is fragile like a flower: / it thirsts for rain / and dies without sun. I love you / and for it I thank God, / who gives me the tenderness, / who gives me the strength, / who gives me the freedom that I do not have. Ballata della società (L’opera) (p. 210) 1. Blessed be the clever, blessed be the rich / blessed be the people with loaded purses / blessed be the strong and the violent / blessed be the powerful. 2. Blessed be those who on this earth / always play “ring around the rosy” / blessed be those who on this earth / always win their wars. 3. But the bitterness, the bitterness, in me / will be changed into happiness. 4. That day we will have a great feast / and then we’ll sing all together / It will be a beautiful day of a great feast / and then we will all dance together. Cambiar al hombre (p. 267) Ref. Let’s change man, / give meaning to life, / recognize in ourselves / a history and a destiny, / take the risk / of being new men. 1. It’s an inevitable encounter / that no one can escape, / it’s the answer to the questions / of those who are searching, / it’s the deepest sense / of all reality. / Listen, you who want to, / everything cries out the truth. 2. God shows Himself in the world / through daily things, / we penetrate the

Mystery / through the yearning of our search / and through our compromises / with created reality. / Give this path time, / because waiting is not standing still. 3. In the world, the simplehearted / are the truest signs / of this deep reality / which brings you new birth. / Emptiness is overcome / and fear is won over by risking. / God gives Himself to us / and changes us from within. Cantico dei redenti (p. 210) Ref. The Lord is my salvation / and with him I no longer fear, / because I have certainty in my heart; / salvation is here with me. 1. I praise you, Lord, / because once you were far from me / now you have come back / and have taken me with you. 2. You will drink with joy at the fountains, / at the fountains of salvation / and on that day you will say: / Praise the Lord, invoke his name. 3. Let all the people know / everything he has done / and may they remember forever, / remember always that his name is great. 4. Sing to him who has done great things / and let the world know it; / shout loudly your joy, / inhabitant of Zion, because great with you is the Lord. Canzone degli occhi e del cuore (p. 211) 1. Even if one day, my friend, / I should forget the words / Forget the time and place, / Whether it was night or day, / I will never be able to forget / What your eyes spoke. Ref. And thus, flying, flying, / even a tiny heart went away, / crossing the sky towards the great heart, / a tiny and petty heart / like an unwelcoming village, / was flying straight up towards its destiny; / and no one was able to stop it, / not even the balance sheets of life, / those inventories that are always taken without love. 2. Thus I spoke in a hurry / not to leave anything behind / not to leave evil behind / and the workings of the mind; / and your eyes told me / that I had already been forgiven. 3. And now go back to the one who knows, / to the one who shares everything with you, / who gives your children a hearty embrace, / and do not hide your face, / since from your eyes one understands / when life begins again.

294

Canzone di Maria Chiara (p. 211) 1. My door will be closed / to the rich and the strong, / to all those who didn’t love, / to those who played with death. 2. To those who were well-off, / to those who seek their own glory, / to those who didn’t love, / and to those who became famous. Ref. If you don’t become like little children, you’ll never enter. 3. There’s no place for one / who won’t sell his house / to buy the field / where I’ve hidden my treasure. 4. But for all the hungry, / those who thirst for justice, / I’ve flung open wide my doors; / I’ve prepared my joy. 5. For those who were persecuted, / for those who cried during the night, / for those who loved, / for those who offered their lives, / 6. my house will be open, / my table prepared. / My house open and table prepared for those who loved, / for those who offered their life. Chant de pénitence (p. 261) Ref. If you knew how much I love you, / you would return to me Jerusalem. / And the weight of your sins themselves / would bring you back. 1. We are no better than our fathers, / the children of Israel. / We are no better than our fathers – / we are just the same. / Yes, we have sinned / and we have cheated. / We have ruined everything / and we have abandoned you. / We are no better than our fathers, / the children of Israel. 2. We are no better than St. Peter / when the cock crowed. / But St. Peter cried. / Yes, we have banished you / and betrayed you. / And we have been embarrassed / to be counted among your friends. / We are no better than St. Peter / when the cock crowed. 3. We are no better than the others, / despite our pretensions. / We are no better than the others, / even if we think we are. / Yet, when you wish, / a glimmer of fire / passes in our eyes / and it’s a radiant day. / We are then closer to the others, / despite our divisions. / And closer to the others – / and we find you again. Come è grande (p. 213) 1. How great is your goodness / prepared for those who fear you / You do great things for those who take refuge in you, / and great things for those who love only You! 2. Like a silent wind you picked us / from the mountains and the sea / you

came to me like a new dawn / your strong arm wanted me here with itself. 3. How clear is the water at your spring / for the thirsty and the tired of searching: / certainly he found the signs of your love / which got lost in the hour of sorrow. 4. Like a flower born among the stones / will search the sky above / so also your Grace, your spirit for us / is born to see the world that You want. Como busca (p. 269) As the tender infant / tired and sad / looks for rest and comfort / in the arms of his mother, / so also, I, from the moment / the white light of dawn resplends, / come, O Lady, / in search of your heavenly protection. Cuando de mi Patrona (p. 269) 1. When I go to the sanctuary of Our Lady, / going uphill is like going downhill. / And when I go down, / it becomes an uphill climb. 2. I do not know what it is that Our Lady has, / I don’t know what it is when she looks at me. / Her eyes are like stars. / Oh, may I always see myself in those eyes! Dulcis Christe (p. 195) 1. Sweet Jesus, good God, / my love, my life, / my salvation, my glory. 2. You are the creator, / you are the savior of the world. 3. I want you, I love you, / I adore you, o sweet love, / I adore you, o dear Jesus. El Señor es mi fuerza (p. 271) Ref. The Lord is my strength, / my rock, my salvation. 1. You lead me in the path of justice, / you teach me truth. / You give me courage for my struggles; / I’ll forge on without fear. 2. You give light to the shadows of my life; / you give light to the world. / Even if I walk in the valley of shadows, / I will never fear. 3. I entrust my life’s destiny / to the God of my salvation. / You teach your ways to the poor; / you are their shield. 4. The Lord is the strength of His people, / their great liberator. / You make them live in trust, / sure that they belong to You.

295

Errore di prospettiva (p. 214) 1. When the day comes in which we’ll see / everything clearly, / think of how much we’ll laugh, / how meaningless our fears will have been. 2. With music, / with hearts full of joy / for the time gone by, / for a serene morning. Ref. But there’s one thing / that I could / never laugh about: / about the bad things / that I meant to do to you. / If there’s one thing that I want, / something that’s worth it, / it is to dwell in your house – / everything else is banal. / And to speak with you / about when I was little, / when I saw things / with the eyes of a child. 3. Do you remember / that time when I was so angry / and I believed it was love? / I wanted to be just. Este es el dia del Señor (p. 272) Ref.
