Communion: The King of Love My Shepherd Is
Verses: The King of love my shepherd is, whose goodness fails me never;
I nothing lack if I am his, and he is mine forever.
Confused and foolish oft I strayed, but yet in love he sought me;
And on his shoulder gently laid, and home, rejoicing, brought me.
And so, through all the length of days your goodness fails me never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing your praise within your house forever.
Recessional: City of God
Verses: Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!
A new day is dawning, for all those who weep.
The people in darkness, have seen a great light,
The Lord of our longing, has conquered the night. (refrain)
O City of gladness, now lift up your voice.
Proclaim the good tidings, that all may rejoice. (refrain)
Refrain: Let us build the city of God: may our tears be turned into dancing!
For the Lord, our light and our love, has turned the night into day!
