O Magnum Mysterium David N. Childs

  b. 1969

O great mystery, And wondrous sacrament,

That animals should see the Lord born, Lying in a manger!

Blessed Virgin, whose womb was worthy To bear Lord Christ. Allelujah!

O Lord, I heard your instruction And fearfully considered your works

And I trembled in the midst of two animals.

Alélouya        Emile Desamours

           b. 1941

Alleluja! Today, Sunday, makes three days since they sacrificed Him on a cross.

We buried him in a tomb where they were going to forget Him for all time.

He is alive, Glory to God. Christ is alive, you hear? Christ is alive forever.

We ourselves also, thanks to him, we can live forever in his Father’s kingdom.

Alleluia, Jesus is resurrected.  Jesus died, they buried him, on the third day He rose.

It’s not a zombie without a soul, because He is alive for sure.

Come on, let’s go tell Father Peter, let’s go look for Matthew,

Let’s tell little Mark. Too bad Thomas won’t believe.

We all can quit crying, sing to celebrate life.

Yes! Jesus is alive for all time, Alleluia. Jesus paid for my sins on the cross.

He died, He rose. His grace is enough to save me. Amen, alleluia!
