Mother Of Mercy (Mater Misericoriae – 6 Verses) – Organ

Mother Of Mercy Lyrics

1. Mother of Mercy! day by day
My love of thee grows more and more;
Thy gifts are strewn upon my way
Like sands upon the great sea-shore.
Like sands upon the great sea-shore.

2. Though poverty and work and woe
The masters of my life may be,
When times are worst, who does not know
Darkness is light with love of thee?
Darkness is light with love of thee?

3. But scornful men have coldly said
Thy love was leading me from God;
And yet in this I did but tread
The very path my Saviour trod.
The very path my Saviour trod.

4. They know but little of thy worth
Who speak these heartless words to me;
For what did Jesus love on earth
One half so tenderly as thee?
One half so tenderly as thee?

5. Get me the grace to love thee more;
Jesus will give if thou wilt plead;
And, Mother! when life’s cares are o’er,
O I shall love thee then indeed!
O I shall love thee then indeed!

6. Jesus, when His three hours were run,
Bequeath’d thee from the cross to me;
And O! how can I love thy Son,
Sweet Mother! if I love not thee?
Sweet Mother! if I love not thee?

I Know A Rose Tree Springing (Es Is Ein Ros Entsprungen – 3 Verses) – Organ & Trumpet Descant

I Know A Rose Tree Springing Lyrics

I know a rose tree springing
Forth from an ancient root,
As men of old we singing,
From Jesse came the shoot
That bore a blossom bright
Amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night.

This rose-tree, blossom laden,
Whereof Isaiah spake,
Is Mary, spotless maiden
Who mothered, for our sake,
The little Child, newborn,
By God’s eternal counsel,
On that first Christmas morn .

O Flow’r, whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air,
Dispel in glorious splendor
The darkness ev’rywhere;
True man, yet very God
From sin and death now save us
And share our ev’ry load.

Lectionary And Other Uses

German Original

Es ist ein Ros entsprungen,
aus einer Wurzel zart,
wie uns die Alten sungen,
von Jesse kam die Art
Und hat ein Blümlein bracht
mitten im kalten Winter,
wohl zu der halben Nacht.

Das Röslein, das ich meine,
davon Isaias sagt,
ist Maria die reine
die uns das Blümlein bracht.
Aus Gottes ew’gem Rat
hat sie ein Kind geboren
und blieb ein reine Magd.
or: Welches uns selig macht.

Das Blümelein, so kleine,
das duftet uns so süß,
mit seinem hellen Scheine
vertreibt’s die Finsternis.
Wahr Mensch und wahrer Gott,
hilft uns aus allem Leide,
rettet von Sünd und Tod.

O Holy Night (Small Ensemble, 6 Verses)

Carol – O Holy Night : Lyrics

1. O holy night,
the Babe lies in the manger,
O holy night,
He sleeps there in the hay.

2. O holy night,
He’s watched by mother Mary;
O holy night,
He sleeps ’til break of day.

3. O holy night,
The star was brightly shining;
O holy night,
When angels sang their lay.

4. O holy night,
When shepherds came to worship!
O holy night,
In awe they came to pray.

5. O holy night,
The kings bowed low before Him;
O holy night,
The Babe smiles as they pray.

6. O holy night,
The brightest dawn is breaking,
O holy night,
When Jesus came to stay.

Jesus Good Above All Other (Quem Pastores, 5 Verses)

Jesus Good Above All Other : Lyrics

1. Jesus, good above all other,
Gentle Child of gentle mother,
In a stable born our Brother,
Give us grace to persevere.

2. Jesus, cradled in a manger,
For us facing every danger,
Living as a homeless Stranger,
Make we Thee our King most dear.

3. Jesus, for Thy people dying,
Risen Master, death defying,
Lord in Heav’n, Thy grace supplying,
Keep us by Thine altar near.

4. Jesus, Who our sorrows bearest,
All our thoughts and hopes Thou sharest,
Thou to man the truth declarest;
Help us all Thy truth to hear.

5. Lord, in all our doings guide us;
Pride and hate shall ne’er divide us;
We’ll go on with Thee beside us,
And with joy we’ll persevere!
