Song Sheet for Mass
Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God
New Years Eve/Day Songs
January 1, 2021
St. Mary of the Assumption Church
Sing Of Mary
1. Sing of Mary meek and lowly,
Virgin mother pure and mild,
Sing of God's own Son most holy,
Who became her little child.
Fairest child of fairest mother,
God the Lord who came to earth,
Word made flesh, our very brother,
Takes our nature by his birth.
2. Sing of Jesus, son of Mary,
In the home at Nazareth.
Toil and labor cannot 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.
3. 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 reechoes
Unto earth's remotest ends.
R. May God bless us in his mercy.
Mysterium Fidei (Mystery of Faith)
Agnus Dei (Lamb of God)
Communion Antiphon: Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and for ever.
What Child Is This?
1. What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Maryâ€™s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
the babe, the son of Mary.
2. Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
3. So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come peasant, king, to own him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Recessional: Hark! The Hearlad Angels Sing
1. Hark! the herald angels sing:
“Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!”
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With angelic hosts proclaim:
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King.”
2. Christ, by highest heav’n adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time, behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!
Hail th’incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with us to dwell;
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
3. Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Ris’n with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that we no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give us second birth.
