I Viderunt Omnes Mikolaj
Zielenski
Viderunt omnes fines terrae
salutare Dei nostri,
Alleluja
Set Me as a Seal Rene
Clausen
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm,
for love is strong as death.
Many waters can-not quench love:
neither can the floods drown it.

Sicut Moses Heinrich
Schuetz
Sicut Moses serpentem in deserto exaltavit,
ita filium hominis oportet exaltari,
ut ominis qui credit in eum non pereat,
sed habeat vitam aeternam.

Thus as Moses once lifted up the serpent in the desert,
even so must the son of man be evermore exaulted:
that all who have faith in their Savior will never die;
nay, they will have life everlasting.

 
II Abendlied Josef
Rheinberger
1839 - 1901
Bleib bei uns, denn es will Abend werden,
und der Tag hat sich geneiget.

Stay with us, for quickly falls the evening,
and the day is past and over.

 
III Serioso-giocoso A. Koszewski Translation - A reed blows mournfully, expressing our oppression.
Its manner changes as our spirits grow merry. Humorously it pipes,
encouraging happiness and subduing sorrow, first tenderly affectionate,
then boldly fanciful: "Life is Good". The pasture is peaceful; the last strains
of music are muffled by the wind.
 
IV Yea, Thou I Wander Georg
Schumann
edited by Paul
Christiansen
Yea, though I wander thru the vale of death,
I will fear no evil for Thou art with me.
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Sanctus Jan
Sandstorm
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus Dominus Deus.
Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria.
gloria tua
O Lord God Paul
Tschesnokoff
O Lord God, hear Thou my pray'r
help Thou me, and give ear to my pray'r
Daily do I worship Thy great name and Thy pow'r.
Thou alone canst help me; O send me Thy peace and love,
O protect me, my God. Let me never stray, O my Savior.
Leave me not, O God of my salvation.
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live,
and praise Thy great name while I have my being.
Glory to Thee, Glory to God.

V Dance the Cachuca Gilbert
and
Sullivan
Dance a cachuca, fandango, bolero,
Xeres we'll drink,Manzanilla, Montero
Wine, when it runs in abundance, enhances the
reckless delight of that wildest of dances!
To the pretty pitter, pitter, patter, and
the clitter, clitter clatter, we'll dance
Once more, gondolieri, both skilful and wary,
free from this quandary, Contented are we.
From royalty flying, Our gondolas plying,
And merrily crying our "preme, stali!"
So, goodbye, cachuca, fandango, bolero,
We'll dance a farewell to that measure
Old Xerrs, adieu, Manzanilla, Montero
We leave you with feelings of pleasure!
 
VI Komm susser Tod Johann
Sebastian
Bach
Komm susser Tod. Komm selge Rhu.
Komm fuhre mich in Friede.
 
VII Dirait-on Morten
Lauridsen
Abandon entoure d'abandon,
tendresse touchant aux tendresses...
C'est ton interieur qui sans cesse
se caresse, dirait-on;

se caresse en soi-meme,
par son propre reflet eclaire.
Ainsi tu inventes le theme
du Narcisse exauce.

Abandon surrounding abandon,
tenderness touching tenderness...
Your oneness endlessly
caresses itself, so they say;

self-caressing
through its own clear reflection.
Thus you invent the theme
of Narcissus fulfilled.

 
VIII O Sifuni mungu arr. by
Roger
Emerson
All creatures of our God and king
Viumbe vyo te vya Mungu wetu na Mfal me wetu

Lift up your voice and sing with us
Pazeni sauti elinase mwimbe

All men, all creatures, everybody praise God
Watu wote, viumbe vyote, awaue yote, sifu Mungu

Sing
Imbeni

A Welsh Lullaby arr. by
K. Lee
Scott
Hush, my dear one, sleep serenely;
Now my lovely, slumber deep.
Mother rocks you, humming lowly;
Close your eyes, now go to sleep
Daniel, Daniel, Servant of the Lord arr. by
Undine
Moore
Oh, the king cried,"Oh! Daniel, Daniel, oh!
A that a Hebrew Daniel, servent of the Lord!"
Among the Hebrew nation, one Hebrew, Daniel was found.
They put him in the lion's den. He stayed there all night long.
Now the king in his sleep was troubled,
and early in the morning he rose,
to find God had sent a His angel down
to lock the lion's jaws!

Give Me Jesus arr. by
Larry
Fleming
O, when I am alone, give me Jesus
You may have all the rest, give me Jesus
O, when I come to die, give me Jesus
You may have all the rest, give me Jesus
And when I want to sing, give me Jesus
You may have all the rest, give me Jesus
