All That We Have (Gary Ault)

Practicing a beautiful song written by Gary Ault, "All That We Have." Accompaniment written by Gary Daigle. Copyright 1969, 1979, Damean Music.

REFRAIN
All that we have and all that we offer
Comes from a heart both frightened and free.
Take what we bring now and give what we need.
All done in his name.

Some would rely on their power,
Others put trust in their gold.
Some have only their Savior,
Whose faithfulness never grows old.

Sometimes the road may be lonesome,
Often we may lose our way;
Take courage and always remember
Love isn't just for a day.

Sometimes when troubles are many,
Life can seem empty, it's true,
But look at the life of the Master,
Who lovingly suffered for you.

The Love of the Lord by Michael Joncas

MP3 Music Playlist: 

The Love of the Lord presented by Richard and Mary Joy at St. Mary's Church.

1. All that I counted as gain now I consider as loss,
Empty and worthless to me in the light of the love of the Lord.

2. Riches and honors will fade, earthly delights disappear, 
Fade like the grass of the field in the light of the love of the Lord.

Refrain
What more could bring us hope than to know the pow'r of his life? 
What more could bring us peace than to share in his suff'ring and death? 
What more could be our final wish than to live in the love of the Lord?

3. Silver and gold have I none, no land to count as my home,
Yet wealth beyond measure I own in the light of the love of the Lord.

4. Faith is the wealth I possess finding its source in my God;
Faith in the promise of Christ is my life and my love in the Lord. (2)

Christ the King - B

R. The Lord is king; he is robed in majesty.

The LORD is king, with majesty enrobed.
     The LORD has robed himself with might;
     he has girded himself with power.

The world you made firm, not to be moved;
     your throne has stood firm from of old.
     From all eternity, O LORD, you are.

Truly your decrees are to be trusted.
     Holiness is fitting to your house,
     O LORD, until the end of time.

TODAY, FOR THE FIRST TIME, you can download a rare 1954 hymnal by Fr. John Selner. In the past, I’ve mentioned that some of the old Catholic hymnals were pretty awful, but this one is splendid. Since part of my involvement with a special hymn project requires searching through rare hymn books, I decided to share this one with you...
