I help lead the congregation at St Patrick's of the Island in the diocese of Valleyfield in Quebec. Because we play the children's mass, we need to keep current with what is out there yet blend in traditional music to broaden our musical reach. I find the Advent and the Lenten seasons more of a challenge to find appropriate music without boring the children. This is where we need a bit of help.

Child of Eternal Love

[verse 1]
God, in glory, brings a star so bright.
A Son is born in a bed of barley hay.
Behold the Savior, our New Light,
Child of Eternal Love, Shepherd of the way.

[verse 2]
Mary, full of grace, will know the sorrow and the joy
of bringing forth the One Whom the prophets long foretold.
Joseph, by her side, will help raise up the Boy,
Child of Eternal Love, Flower to unfold.

[refrain]
Praise the Father of all creation
Praise the Son who conquers death
Praise the Spirit with jubilation
Grow God's love with every breath

[interlude]

[verse 3]
In the dark of night, in the winter chill,
We lift our prayers to the Trinity above.
Oh come, new Tree of Life, our hope fulfilled:
A Child of Promise of Eternal Love.

[refrain]

Sleep, Baby, Sleep

[verse 1]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
on this magic night. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while Mother holds you tight. 
Little baby, so so small, 
lying in that humble stall. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

[verse 2]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels hum a tune. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the golden moon. 
Kings and shepherds see the star 
and come to visit from afar. 
So sleep, Baby, sleep 
while angels watch they keep.

[bridge] 
Born in the fullness of time, 
Spirit and matter combine. 
Praise to the King of all kings, 
The Son of the God of all things. 
Here in this portal, 
new life immortal. 
In a manger with sheep 
in soft wool you sleep.

[verse 3]
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
beneath the starry sky. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep 
to Mary's lullaby. 
You have come to save us all, 
little Jesus, so so small. 
Sleep, Baby, sleep.
Sleep, Baby, sleep.

SPANISH:

Duerme, niño, duerme

Duerme, niño, duerme
que tu madre te abraza.
Criatura, tan pequena,
Echado en tan simple cuna.
Duerme, niño, duerme.
Los angeles te guardan.

Duerme, niño, duerme.
Los angeles te cantan
Duerme, niño, duerme
bajo la luna de plata.
Reyes y pastores de muy allá
vienen al ver la estrella brillar.
Duerme, niño, duerme
Los angeles te guardan.

Nació_en lo_inmenso del tiempo, 
Espíritu_y carne_al momento
Alabemos al Rey de Reyes
Hijo del Dios de todos entes.
Aquí_en su portal,
nueva vida_inmortal.
Con ovejas en el pesebre.
En su paño de lana duerme.

Duerme, niño, duerme
bajo el cielo estrellado.
Duerme, niño, duerme
a la nana que María ha cantado.
Has venido a salvarnos a todos,
Pequeño Jesús, oh Dios,
Duerme, niño, duerme.
Duerme, niño, duerme.

My Debut Album - I Call Your Name

Hi! My name is Joanne Wallace, a singer-songwriter from Liverpool, UK.

After years away from the church, I have re-discovered my faith and my love of church music. 

I was always involved in the music ministry at my church growing up and to be honest, thought that part of my life experience was over. Then I had my children and found that through them, all those memories came flooding back. The door was opened once again and once I went through it, all of this music starting to come to me.

"I Call Your Name" has been an unexpected gift to me - if you asked me only 3 years ago,  I would never have imagined I would have rediscovered church and songwriting after all this time and to have released an album of my own original worship music! I write my songs on guitar and piano (although I am really a master of neither!) but my sound does have some gospel influence in the backing vocals.

I now lead the music ministry at our local church and sing new compositions there when it fits with the liturgy. As well as worship songs, I have written more 'traditional' sounding hymns and Mass settings too.  We sing my 'Gloria' every week!  I have had a lot of positive feedback, which is great to hear.

Please listen to my audio samples at www.joannewallace.co.uk.

CDs can be ordered via my website or you can download at www.amazon.com (search Digital Music- Joanne Wallace) and www.cdbaby.com.

I hope you enjoy what you hear.  I look forward to sharing my music and networking with other writers!
