1
Hail to the Lord’s Anointed.
Great David’s greater Son!
Hail, in the time appointed,
His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression,
To set the captives free,
To take away transgression,
And rule in equity.

(Interlude)

2
He shall come down like showers
Upon the fruitful earth,
And joy, and hope, like flowers,
Spring in his path to birth.
Before him on the mountains
Shall peace, the herald go
And righteousness, in fountains,
From hill to valley flow.

(Interlude)

3
Kings shall bow down before him
And gold and incense bring;
All nations shall adore him,
His praise all people sing;
To him shall prayer unceasing
And daily vows ascend,
His kingdom still increasing,
A kingdom without end.

(Interlude)

4
O’er ev’ry foe victorious,
He on his throne shall rest,
From age to age more glorious,
All blessing and all blest,
The tide of time shall never
His covenant remove;
His name shall stand forever,
That name to us is love.

1
A stable lamp is lighted
Whose glow shall wake the sky;
The stars shall bend their voices,
And every stone shall cry.

2
And every stone shall cry,
And straw like gold shall shine;
A barn shall harbor heaven,
A stall become a shrine.

(Interlude)

3
This child through David’s city
Shall ride in triumph by;
The palm shall strew its branches,
And every stone shall cry.

4
And every stone shall cry,
Though heavy, dull, and dumb,
And lie within the roadway
To pave his kingdom come.

(Interlude)

5
Yet he shall be forsaken,
And yielded up to die;
The sky shall groan and darken,
And every stone shall cry.

6
And every stone shall cry,
For hearts made hard by sin:
God’s blood upon the spearhead,
God’s love refused again.

(Interlude)

7 But now, as at the ending,
The low is lifted high;
The stars shall bend their voices,
And every stone shall cry.

8
And every stone shall cry,
In praises of the child
By whose descent among us
The worlds are reconciled.

Performed by Fr. J. Roel Lungay

Arranged and produced by Romeo Mascarinas

1
When Jesus came to Jordan
To be baptized by John,
He did not come for pardon
But as the Father’s Son.

2
He came to share repentance
With all who mourn their sins,
To speak the vital sentence
With which good news begins.

(Interlude)

3
He came to share temptation,
Our utmost woe and loss;
For us and our salvation
To die upon the cross.

4
So when the Dove descended
On him, the Son of Man,
The hidden years had ended,
The age of grace began.

No evil shall I fear;
Your rod and staff give comfort
For you are ever near.

4
You spread a sumptuous banquet
In sight of all my foes;
With oil you do anoint me,
My cup now overflows.

(Interlude)

5
His goodness and His kindness
Shall ever follow me;
His house shall be my dwelling
For all eternity.

6
Give praise to God the Father,
To Christ His only Son,
And to the Holy Spirit,
True God in essence One.

YOU WALK ALONG OUR SHORELINE

7 6 7 6 Meter

Text: Sylvia Dunstan, 1955-1993
Music: Fr. J. Roel Lungay, b. 1960

Performed by Fr. J. Roel Lungay

Arranged by J. Roel Lungay and Romeo Mascarinas

Orchestration by Romeo Mascarinas

1
You walk along our shoreline
When land meets unknown sea.
We hear your voice of power,
“Now come and follow me.
And if you still will follow
Through storm and wave and shoal,
Then I will make you fishers
But of the human soul.”

(Interlude)

2
You call us, Christ, to gather
The people of the earth.
We cannot fish for only
Those lives we think have worth.
We spread your net of gospel
Across the water’s face,
Our boat a common shelter
For all found by your grace.

(Interlude)

3
We cast our net, O Jesus;
We cry the kingdom’s name;
We work for love and justice;
We learn to hope through pain.
You call us, Lord, to gather
God’s daughters and God’s sons,
To let your judgment heal us
So that all may be one.
