When the starlight fades to amber (Volga, Volga mat’ rodnaya) – Piano, Strings and Flute

Lyrics

When the starlight fades to amber
And the dawn proclaims the hour,
We will seek life’s new adventures
In God’s loving care and power.

And bright shining holy Father,
Make us children of the sun,
To help and care for others
Like your own beloved Son.

For the earth is like a mother
Who gives us life and health,
We must care for her and nurture
The nature that’s her wealth.

When the fun and games are over
And our toys are put away,
We know it’s time to pray now
Giving you thanks for a perfect day.

In the quiet consecration (Volga, Volga mat’ rodnaya) – Piano, Strings and Flute

Lyrics

In the quiet consecration
Of this glad communion hour,
Here we rest in you, Lord Jesus,
Taste your love and touch your power.

Christ, the living bread from heaven,
Christ, whose blood is drink indeed,
Here by faith and with thanksgiving,
In our hearts on you we feed.

By your death for sin atoning,
By your resurrection life,
Hold us fast in joyful union;
Strengthen us to face the strife;

While in joyful holy radiance
Shines the feast that is to come
After conflict, toil, and testing
Your great feast of love and home!
