Charles Tindley (arr. Barbara W. Baker) | The Storm is Passing Over
Have courage my soul and let us journey on.
Though the night is dark and I am far from home.
Thanks be to God the morning light appears.
The storm is passing over, Hallelu.
Halleluia, Halleluia, the storm is passing over, Hallelu.
- Ilan Balzac, soloist
Christopher Tye | Give almes of thy goods
Give almes of thy goods, and turn never thy face from any poor man:
And then the face of the Lord shall not be turned away from thee.
Richard Nance | Set Me as a Seal
Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm;
For love is strong as death.
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.
Set me as a seal…

Bob Chilcott, arr. | The Gift to be Simple
‘Tis the gift to be simple, ‘tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where you ought-a be,
And when we find ourselves in a place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
To turn, turn will be our delight
Till by turning, turning we come round right.
Stephen Paulus, arr. | The Road Home
Tell me where is the road
I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost,
So long ago?
All these years I have wandered,
Oh when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?
After wind, after rain,
When the dark is done,
As I wake from a dream
In the gold of day,
Through the air there’s a calling
From far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.
Rise up, follow me,
Come away is the call,
With love in your heart
As the only song;
There is no such beauty as where you belong,
Rise up, follow me,
I will lead you home.
