This I believe

Our Father, everlasting, the all creating One, God Almighty. Through Your Holy Spirit, Conceiving Christ the Son, Jesus our Savior.
Refrain:
I believe in God our Father, I believe in Christ the Son. I believe in the Holy Spirit, Our God is three in One.
I believe in the resurrection,
That we will rise again.
For I believe in the name of Jesus.
Our Judge and our Defender, suffered and crucified, Forgiveness is in You. Descended into darkness,
You rose in glorious life, forever seated high. Refrain
I believe in You, I believe You rose again. I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. Refrain
I believe in life eternal,
I believe the virgin birth.
I believe in the saints’ communion And in Your holy Church.
I believe in the resurrection,
When Jesus comes again.
For I believe in the name of Jesus. Refrain



 
 
 
 
 
Veni Creator Spirius
Veni Creator Spiritus, Mentes tuorum visita Imple superna gratia, Quae tu creasti, pectora.

Qui diceris Paraclitus, Altissimi donum Dei Fons vivus, ignis, caritas, Et spiritalis unctio.

Tu septiformis munere, Digitus Paternae dexterae Tu rite promissum Patris, Sermone ditans guttura.

Accende lumen sensibus, Infunde amorem cordibus, Infirma nostri corporis Virtute firmans perpeti.

Hostem repellas longius, Pacemque dones protinus, Ductore sic te praevio, Vitemus omne noxium.

Per te sciamus da Patrem, Noscamus atque Filium, Te utriusque Spiritum Credamus omni tempore.

Deo Patri sit gloria, Et Filio qui a mortuis Surrexit, ac Paraclito, In saeculorum saecula.

Amen.



 
 
 
 
 
One Means Alone
Words and Music by the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles

For the sake of the joy that lay before Him, He endured the Cross, running the race. With our eyes fixed upon our Jesus, Savior, We endure the cross, running the race.

O my Savior, conceal me completely In the depths of Your Heart, I know that Your grace and mercy Come by one means alone, and that is trust.

Refrain:
I believe in Your tender love for me. I long to hear You say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” “My Child, your heart gives Me rest.”

See what love has the Father for His children, Sending His own Son, He laid down His life. So may we enter in the Paschal Mystery, Laying down our lives, bearing much fruit. O my Savior, cover me completely

In Your Most Precious Blood. I know that Your grace and mercy come by one means alone, and that is trust. Refrain



 
 
 
 
 
You Conquer
Words and Music by the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles

The winds so strong surround me, The storms they rage within. Fears unending flow, My heart won’t be stilled.

Your voice is there, I hear it. Through all the noise of doubt Yet, my Rock, Your promise sure, Forever You are here.

Refrain:
And You conquer as on the Third Day. You conquer; my fears are blown away. Steady in Your wind I stand Precious in Your mighty hand.

You conquer, I am Yours.

Without You I am nothing And all my work is dust. Your Spirit stirs, Embers start to glow! My heart is broken open; Your mercy floods my soul. You fill me, Flood of Mercy. Your torrent is my strength.

Refrain:
And You conquer as on the Third Day. You conquer; my fears are blown away. Lifted by Your wind I soar I shall want for nothing more. You conquer, I am Yours.

Rushing, relentless, You reign, O Spotless Lamb Who was slain. With You I die; Your death brings me life! Your Cross is my hope; There is no other way! There is You alone. I live no longer I.

Refrain:
And You conquer as on the Third Day. You conquer; my fears are blown away. Dancing in Your wind I sing Glory to my Victor King. You conquer, I am Yours. (2x)



 
 
 
 
 
For the Beauty of the Earth
Words by F.S. Pierpoint; music by John Rutter

For the beauty of the earth, For the beauty of the skies, For the love which from our birth Over and around us lies, Lord of all, to Thee we raise This our grateful hymn of praise.

The Rose
Words and Music by Amanda McBroom

Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed. Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.

Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless, aching need. I say love, it is a flower, and you, it’s only seed.

It’s the heart, afraid of breaking that never learns to dance It’s the dream, afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It’s the one who won’t be taken who cannot seem to give, And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely And the road has been too long, And you think that love is only For the lucky and the strong.

Just remember, in the winter, Far beneath the bitter snows,

Lies the seed that with the sun’s love In the spring, becomes the rose.



 
 
 
 
 
Mercy Rushes In
Words and Music by the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles

Refrain:
From Your Heart flows a fount of endless grace. Fire of love, purify with living flame. However great the sin, Mercy rushes in.

You will never fail me, Jesus, I trust in You.

So many souls wounded by sin. Walking through this vale of tears, Searching for Your love. Faith lifts our eyes; Can there be more? Unexpected, undeserved, Mercy I implore.

Refrain

Pierced by a lance, crushed under sin. Willing victim crucified, thirsting for our love. Your Heart exposed, for all to see, Drawing all to enter into this mystery.

Refrain

Transformed by grace, bathed in Your Blood, In the Holy Eucharist, two becoming one. Run to His Heart, burn with His love, Sharers in His very life, all He wants is trust.

Refrain



 
 
 
 
 
That Day
Words and Music by the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles

Darkness still covers the whole earth. But on you the Lord is rising. Lift up your eyes and look all ‘round. Flood gates will open and not close on that day.
Shout for all you’re worth, don’t hold back. To the Holy One cry, “Remove Your veil.” God, You’re the only One that matters. We know You’ll come and take us home on that day.

Refrain:
That day Your Name will be the one and only Name. That day with no night, we’ll love You forever. (2x)
Day by day it’s drawing closer, Coming to you with such great speed! (2x) Refrain
We’ll see that Your love is stronger than death. Nothing will quench its flame on that day. (3x)
We love you, we live for you, we love you, Jesus.
We’ll see that Your love is stronger than death. Nothing will quench its flame on that day.

Blessings
Words and Music by Laura Story

We pray for blessings. We pray for peace, Comfort for family, protection while we sleep. We pray for healing, for prosperity. We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering. All the while, You hear each spoken need, Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things.

Refrain:
What if Your blessings come through raindrops? What if Your healing comes through tears? What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near?
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?
We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear. We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near. We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love, As if every promise from Your Word is not enough. All the while, You hear each desperate plea, And long that we’d have faith to believe.

Refrain

Bridge:
When friends betray us, When darkness seems to win, We know that pain reminds this heart That this is not, this is not our home. It’s not our home.

Final Refrain:
What if Your blessings come through raindrops? What if Your healing comes through tears? What if a thousand sleepless nights Are what it takes to know You’re near?
What if my greatest disappointments, Or the aching of this life, Is the revealing of a greater thirst This world can’t satisfy?
What if trials of this life, The rain, the storms, the hardest nights Are Your mercies in disguise?
